Baby Mohawk / Fohawk …..? I Don’t See Why Not.

baby mohawk fohawk down syndrome baby

One of the moms on our Facebook page made a comment today about how cute children with mohawks are, and I promised I post a picture of baby Noah’s first mohawk (or shall I say fohawk?) 🙂

This picture was taken back in May of 2011, when we took Noah on his first vacation. He was out of town, and wanted to do it big. So I gave him a little wax and helped him do it big with a baby-hawk…!

(In the process I was reminded of how much this little boy has grown up since May of 2011….wow!)

Ok, how about you? Do you have any baby mohawk / fohawk pictures?  Let’s see them.  You can post a picture directly in the comments, or on our Facebook page. (I’m looking forward to seeing some epic cuteness!)

Hi, I'm Noah's Dad and I'm passionate about giving the world a window into our life as we raise our son who was born with Down syndrome. I also enjoy connecting with other families, so let's stay connected.

    Chapman’s mohawk…wrestlemania with dad!

  2. Donnarthurs says:

    No matter how his hair is, Noah is just simply one of the most beautiful babies (little boy now) that I have ever seen.  No wonder you are so proud of him.

    Hi lovelies!! Here is my son Caleb rocking his fohawk for the very first time when he was 7 months old. He rocks it every chance he can get and he is now 15 months old. Love my superman so very much.

  4. Lincoln’s fohawk…   🙂  *he’s 2 months in the picture, 3 1/2 yrs now.

  7. This is my son, he isn’t special needs or has down syndrome but so far we haven’t done my daughter’s hair in a “mohawk”.  Please excuse the mess but I was cleaning and couldn’t pass up the picture opportunity, my friends 16 yr old was at the house and she decided to give Nate a “fo hawk”

    Sabra’s first faux-hawk happened while she was in the NICU. This second one was after we got her home 4 weeks later. I call it her “I pitty tha Fool!” look.

    • Hahaha, this is awesome! I love both! 

      How old is Sabra now?

      • 10 weeks + 4 days

        • @da7d0a0ab9526903d1fa5654e8df4670:disqus Awesome. Not much younger than Noah. It will be fun to watch them grow up together. 🙂  
          By the way, did you get an email when I replied to your comment? I’m trying to make sure that everyone is getting notified when replies are made to comments.  Thanks. 

          • It’s already been great and encouraging to us to see where Sabra will be in a few short months.
            And, no, I didn’t get an email notification. I just noticed your comment when I checked back for more photo submissions.

  26. Sarah was born with her fluffy mohawk and no matter what we did, it stuck right up till she was about 8 mths old.  Everyone loved it…even though it tickled up the nose when you held her close lol.

  27. Scott and Vanessa says:

  28. Aww Noah is so cute baby 🙂
