By five months, my hair was all gone!

My last haircut - in December!

11. My dream job would be to work in the marketing department of the Toronto Blue Jays

  1. I can't imagine sweet quinoa. I've had it as like a rice at dinner. I'm curious about your post-parting hair loss -- it all fell out? But obviously grows back, so thats good. Is it a form of alopecia? That's what I have, minus the having-a-baby part. Unfortunately mine doesn't want to grow back :(

  2. Great update/info! I have a 2:30 total commute on the Go Train daily as well (Bradford/Union)
