He's so coot

Jamie is now losing his hair at an ever quickening rate.

Indeed, in recent mornings, Vanessa has made a point of checking out the sheet in his Moses basket to see how many hairs he's managed to shed over the previous night. And the sad answer is normally the same: quite a few.

The way things are going, our son will soon be - as the saying goes - as bald as a coot.

Which got me thinking. Do you know what a coot looks like? I realised I had absolutely no idea. So, if you're like me, then this is your lucky day.

Above left is a picture of a baby coot. Above right is a picture of a baby Jamie.

In a week or two we might not be able to tell them apart.
