Crazy Hair and Fun Toes

The 'do

Nieve has perhaps some of the craziest (natural) hair ever for a baby. It's long, wavy and stylish in the front (Mom puts a clip on it to keep it out of her eyes), short on the sides & back (from being rubbed off during her sleep), and capped by a large wistful tuft on top that shoots straight up and curls over towards her back like the lip of a wave. A little action figure could get barreled quite nicely in that tuft.

Our little girl, so proud to have grasped her toes

She has also found her toes- she loves grabbing them and grinning at you with a look of great satisfaction. On occasion she can master the pull-with-the-hands-but-keep-legs-loose coordination and get those toes into her mouth. The toes must have a little funk to them (Mom confirms this) as Nieve pulls a scrunched-up face and will only gnaws on then for a few seconds (as opposed to my finger, a toy, her bib, teething ring, etc. which she'll chew on with vigor for a good 30 mins).

Dude, I love it. That last photo is a gem. I wonder how high the "wave" is going to get.

Big enough for you to ride the wave on your short board, Todd!

The tuft is getting bigger, though the wave looks less ridable as it's starting to close out.

Waves do close out - but then another one comes along. You'll see when Nieve gets her first haircut!

Alba thinks these pix are just too cute for words - she's looking forward to meeting Nieve and seeing the rest of you while you're here.
