    Is this the same guy wearing a wig, or is it twins?

    • Johnny Blah says:

      Uh, I’m pretty sure he took the long haired photos first, then had his hair cut and took the short haired photos. he probably wanted to document it, since at his age he may not have time to grow it out again.

    While the sextuplets often enjoyed wearing the same outfit, they could never agree on hair styles, and then there was Jimmy (the youngest by 2 mins) he always insisted on wearing a hat.
