Cowlicks

Family FotoFun Friday Challenge #11 
Post your pictures on your blog and leave a comment here before 12/29/06.

This week's photo challenge is "Cowlicks!"

Cowlicks We thought it was unusual that Gwen has two counter-rotating cowlicks on the back of her head.  Since her hair was very short, they were very noticeable and attracted lots of attention when we were in China.  People went of our their way to try to communicate to us that the double whorl was good luck and meant she'd have a strong will (she does!).

When we met Maddy a year later, we were surprised to see an identical double cowlick in her hair too!  What are the odds of that?

The picture at the top of the collage was taken on Maddy's adoption day (the 2nd day we had her).  Gwen is on the left and Maddy on the right.  Because of her pigtails, you can really see Gwen's very clearly so I searched the archives for pictures of the back of her head and only found three.   I regret that we didn't take a really good picture of her double swirl when her hair was short.  Obviously we were more interested in photographing her pretty face! 

I Googled "cowlicks" to see how common the double swirl was and didn't find an answer but I did find some very cute pictures of cows licking! :)
