My sweet Adeline,
I can’t write about this time of your life without mentioning your hair. It’s crazy. I know when you are 15, you are going to look back on pictures and say, “Mom, what were you thinking?!?” Sweetheart, I just don’t know what to do with it. If I cut it short, I am afraid you will miss having pigtails and “girly hair.” I thought letting it get a bit longer may give it a little weight and control the volume a bit. You won’t let me just put a barrette in it to keep it out of your eyes. It seems to be getting curlier as it gets longer. You are complimented on it a lot, but sometimes the compliment comes with a chuckle because your hair is just crazy! The back is lovely, but the front can get a little “fro like” if I don’t put it back. I hope you always know… you are beautiful.
I love you,
