With three weeks off for paternity leave Cody wanted to not shave the entire time he was off. Only once before had he gone that long without shaving, and it was when I had gone home from college for the Christmas holiday waaaaayyyy back when we were dating.
(I had, coincidently, gotten Cody a new razor for Christmas so when he picked me up at the airport after the month apart, he ended up shaving his out-of-control facial hair off in the car!)
The growth really started to bug him but he stayed in-it-to-win-it up until the week he headed back to work.
But he wasn't going to just shave it off. That would be no fun . . .
He started with a plain goatee.
Little bit by little bit, he changed it up.
With the two above probably being the worst.
Well, I take that back. The picture above borders on scary. Not a fan of the pecil thin, but it was one step closer to normal.
