Red vs. Blonde

Where has my baby's full head of cute red hair gone?? Here's a pic of him months ago:

Most of the red hair has fallen out and has been replaced with lots of sprouting blonde:


Is this normal?? Could it go back to red someday?? It was also so much thicker when he was younger. Weird. This is just one of those things no one tells you about. ;)

Ethan's hair did that, and Ava's too. They both had TONS of thick hair when they were born and lost a lot (all over, not a patch here and there) and then it was replaced with thick less FINE-BABY-LIKE hair.

Ethan's was reddish, too, and then turnd PLATINUM blonde. Ava's was dark, almost black, ad turned more brown.

Our daughter had the same thing...but her hair went from dark to red to blonde.

Check out this guy trying to break a 4 by 4.

It's normal. Usually the color they are born with doesn't mean much. Usually that hair falls out and their real hair starts coming in :)

Lu was born with TONS of straight black hair.....he lost it all (except a few "Scrooge-y" fuzzies) and it came back curly and blonde!!

I think that's normal! My girlfriend had a little girl with the thickest black hair you've ever seen and by 4 or 5 months she was white-blonde and curly!

I have a cousin whose baby was born with black hair and it was replaced with blond!

I think it's normal too. Savannah's hair was DARK when she was born, got really blond this summer, and is growing in a little darker. I think it'll turn darker the older she gets, though. Gabe had the same exact color she does now when he was a little kid and now it's really dark brown. I bet Declan's hair will be somewhat red some day due to his genetics... don't you think??

Totally normal, especially with fairer babies. I was born with red hair and blue eyes, grew up with blond hair and brown eyes, and now have brown hair and hazel eyes as an adult. Can't wait to see what old age brings!

I remember thinking this with Ryan, as far as the thining hair, but I really think it's just due to their head growing faster than the hair coming in???

Evie's hair has thinned out, too. It hasn't much changed color, though. I was born with red hair like Declan and it all fell out and my hair came back in platinum blonde and stayed white-blonde throughout childhood, became normal blonde as a teenager and is now fast becoming brown as I'm getting older. I guess eventually I'll be going gray, too...sigh.
