  • When I had my daughter 5 yrs a go I noticed her full head of black hair. Her hair was actually the first thing my hubby noticed as she was coming out. When I had my son in September the first thing I noticed about him was his long fingers and toes. They look to be about the size of a toddlers fingers and toes:)
