Well over the past several months, the hair gradually thinned...
and basically disappeared:

All that remained was a long patch of hair in the very front. In the back and on the sides, Noah was completely bald. My sisters and a few others told me that we needed to shave his head. I didn't want to do it. I told them no no no. But when people started saying that his hair looked like "Phantom of the Opera when he takes off his mask" (remember the frightening random tufts?), and "a 55 year old man with a combover" (wonderful), and "Rihanna" (with hair only on one side), I relented. It was time.
Monday night, with tears in my eyes, I watched as my sisters cut off the remaining patch of Noah's cute hair:
|Mother is sad.|
|Noah is concerned.|
I will admit, it took me a while to get used to it. But now, I think he is as cute as can be:
And he sure looks darling in a hat!
