Those of you reading the blog for the last few months would know that I manage 2 more super-fast growing ventures. They are called Nakshatra and Nishanth. Our twin babies. They are in to 9th month now (born on September 24th last year).
It is fairly common for kids in this part of the world to get rid of their birth hair around this time. So we took the kids to a near by temple to get them tonsured. I want to share a few pics with all of you.
First it was Nishanth’s turn, since he is one minute older.
At first he cried a bit at the touch of a stranger. But then he loved getting shot and posed for pics.
Then it was Nakshatra’s turn.
She normally cries even at the sight of a new person. Talk about the barber shaving her head. We silenced her using the pacifier. (btw, we call her timmy, named after the sheeplet in Shaun the Sheep, because she wouldn’t sleep without her pacifier.)
But the pacifier didn’t help. She cried a lot and scared the snip-man. I had hold her real tight to make sure she wouldn’t have any cuts.
And this is how they look now..,
All went well in the end. Now, they will sport plenty of new hair for the first birthday.
You can tell that Nakshatra is quite attracted to lens.
PS: Those of you with a keen eye for hair would notice that I got a hair cut too. Yep, I was tired with the long locks.
PPS: I cant hold this pun any more. So here it goes, its going to get real pointy haired here for the next few weeks.
