I just received a brush made from Tatsuki's hair. It is not a hairbrush, it is a calligraphy brush using Tatsuki's hair as the bristles. In Japan, it is traditional to use the hair from the first haircut to make the brush. Tatsuki had his first haircut a few months ago, but he didn't have enough hair for the brush. So the barber saved some of the hair, and last month, he had a second haircut. Using the hair from both haircuts, we had enough to make the brush. Ayumi didn't care about getting the brush made, but I want Tatsuki to follow both Japanese and American customs in his life, so I thought it was important. You can see some pictures below:
