As Ian's hair grew so did the cowlicks. It was going to be a tough few months before the hair grew long enough and could be heavy enough to provide gravity to the cowlicks. It was these days that Ian would spend upwards of 20 minutes in front of the mirror before school and work on his hair. I gave him a squirt bottle with water so that he could wet the rebellious hair and get it in line with the rest of the hair on his head. I was expecting him to wet the hair, comb it down and be on his way. Boy I was in for a surprise. I walked by the bathroom one morning and Ian's head was so wet from the squirt bottle that water was dripping off his face. He looked like he got caught in a severe rainstorm. It was very funny. Ian was trying. He was trying very hard.

|This was a little short for my taste, but those cowlicks didn't stand a chance.|
|Crazy hair first thing in the morning!|
|Holy cowlicks Batman!|
|A few hours later, the hair is starting to fall nicely.|
|Looking good! Now I just need it to grow long enough to comb to the side.|
I love Ian's hair and can't wait for it to get a few inches longer and some of the very short layers grow out. Ian has a very thick head of hair. You can't help but want to put your fingers through it. I hope we can stick through the growing out process before Ian decides he wants to go back to a crew cut.
