Transition for Alec

We ended up with these. I think Locks of Love will love them.


And he started like this:


The process





Eeeeeeeee!


And that wasn't the only thing he wanted to do.


He let me take pictures too. Our stylist kept saying what a good sport he was. Yeah, I kind-of like him ;)



















It was a wonderful day. Calm, peaceful and joyful. Transitioning on his own schedule, just wonderful.


Some things stay the same.

Raiding on WoW.


Isn't he cute? :)

Oh, he's SO cute!! I mean, ahem, manly. Owen is still growing his locks, but Jesse got hot running with his curls in the humidity last year and gets a cut regularly.

Jesse did NOT want to talk about shaving last year, when three long, curly, blond hairs were sprouting from his chin. I bought him a razor and shaving gel and put them under his sink and told him that he didn't have to use them , but anytime he was ready, they were there. I'm not even sure when he started shaving, but the hairs are gone, and he has occasional blond whiskers.:)

I'm so happy to hear about what a joyful time this was for you guys. Makes my heart smile. Love these boys-transitioning-to-men in their own way, at their own time.

Oh man, he's so good looking! I LOVE the shorter hair!!! It's definitely gonna help with the hot humid summers down in Jawga. We can't wait to hook up with you all once things settle down.

He's the first boy I 'know' who's given to locks of love - way cool! Ok, so I don't 'know' him, but someday we're gonna know each other IRL, you and me - right? Right.

Good luck on the move... I know how bittersweet those transitions can be. But new adventures... that sounds very appealing!
