7 month locks, 6 months pregnant

Freshly retwisted! Sorry about the excessive flash.  It makes my head look more "scalpy" than it really is.

What am I thinking?

Long time no see...

While allowing life to keep me from blogging, I've had a disturbing thought: Maybe I should take down my locs.  There are some hairstyles that I miss and more styles that I'd like to try.  Then I remembered why I wanted locs in the first place, freedom.  With a baby on the way, the LAST thing I want to worry about is my hair.  How do these other mothers do it?!?!?!  Yeah, I may not keep my maintenance schedule but now I've learned to skip the wash if I'm not willing or able to retwist.  I can pin my locks on one side, put on some earrings and lipstick and still turn heads.  Big loose hair is not that easy.

Honestly, I'm accustomed to big, long hair.  I miss it. I've always had one or the other, most often both. But in due time, my locs will satisfy my craving for long hair.

This picture with DH was taken in July.  New pics are coming, I promise.
