I KNOW! It sounds like a sin. And in a way, it is. She was born with amazingly beautiful hair, right? But hear me out...
A few weeks ago Grace's dark, luscious locks started falling out. We found hairs all over her bed, her clothes, and us. Two of my nieces that started with hair like Grace's went through this, but it was still heartbreaking.
The hair on the top of her head was thick, long, and laying mega flat, but the sides were thinning like a "before" picture in a Rogaine ad. To complicate things, she'd worn a mother of a bald spot on the back of her head. The rest of the hair in the back was also thick, leaving a 2-inch rat-tail. Stylin'.
So we did something we would have never done a month ago... we cut her hair.
And, much to my relief, she still looks like our Gracie.
