A little bit curly, a little bit straight

   As Sadie has been growing, so has her hair... on half of her head.  Not really sure what this is about.  There are a couple of different theories.  The first is that is has to do with her hemihypertrophy.  Hemi causes an overgrowth of cells, which causes things to be bigger, and thicker.  The other theory is that it has to do with her PCH in some weird way.  After talking to some of the other parents of kids with PCH a couple of their children have hair just like Sadie.
On the left side of her head her hair is thick and curly and growing fast.

And on the right side, her hair is thin and straight and growing very slowly.  (The curls you see at the bottom are actually from the other side.  It's a camera trick.)

   These pictures were taken over the summer so her hair was shorter then it is now.  But it is still growing the same way, uneven.  Even the texture is completely different.  I swear, this child is the biggest mystery.  My hope is that one day her hair is long enough on both sides to be able to put a pony tail in the back.  Or long enough to put pigtails on each side.  But for now, she will just have to be sporting the 80/90's side ponytail.  Gotta love her!!
