Photostory Friday - The Unexpected

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


When I was pregnant with daughter I wondered what my baby would look like. Who would she take after? What colour eyes would she have and what colour hair? Of all the things I imagined, I was not expecting this:





Strawberry blonde curls!


Yep, she is neither blonde, nor red, but a true strawberry blonde. How amazing is that?

Daughter's hair attracts a lot of attention. People stop me in the park, the supermarket, the Post Office and comment on it. People have even commented on this blog about her hair.


I hope she doesn't grow out of it.


Makes a great subject for a photo!

It is beautiful. I love all the curls.

MamaGeek said...

OH what lush hair. Having dark hair myself, I was astonished when my son was blond as well! Beautiful shot!

Alexandria said...

I am hoping beyond hope that My Diva has that hair. She has blonde hair with a touch of red in the right light. It's starting to curl as well.

Beautiful daughter, gorgeous hair!

gigi said...

BEAUTIFUL! Strawberry blonde curls! To die for!
You are so blessed.

Those memories about you and stilts were wonderful. You are the only one that commented that had ever been on stilts. They don't know what they missed!

Happy Friday!

I can see why it attracts attention. That is one beautiful head of hair!!! I have always been envious of that color and the curls are just what I wished I had as a kid and never had.

I hope she never grows out of it too!!!!

Fab PSF!!

Hi there, Mancunian! I lived on the outskirts for many years--in Hale, near Altrincham. Also in Knutsford before that. We're going back forever here :-)

Our family still supports Man United!

Her hair is absolutely precious. Reminds me of the pictures of my step daughter when she was little, no strawberry blonde but those beautiful ringlets and curls. Wonderful pictures. :)

Chris said...

My daughters would kill for that hair! It is beautiful -- and well cared for. I've learned that long, gorgeous hair on a little girl is quite a chore for the parents (ok, usually Mom).
I remember wondering if my kids would look anything like me. They don't.
Great photos, very interesting.

She has my dream hair. Do you think she'd notice if you cut it off and sent it to me? Lucky lucky girl Lxx

My niece had curly strawberry blonde hair like your daugther's when she was young. Now that she is 22 her hair is more of an auburn brown colour and she has straightened it with straighteners. It may not last so enjoy it whilst she has it.

Sass E-mum said...

Beautiful hair. I read that satin pillowcases stop the tangles - that might stop her reaching for the straighteners too soon.
