Stink, Stank, Stunk

Recently, Ellis’ head started smelling like that of a wet dog. I regularly give him baths and wash his hair with the usual baby shampoo…and the smell returns almost instantly. I am wondering if it is due to the olive oil we have been using to try to minimize his cradle cap. Or maybe he is half-pup half-baby. Both are lovable. Both are generally gross.

I am sitting so close to the space heater that I believe most of the hair on my right arm has been singed off.

Root gnats have overtaken my house. Maybe there is a correlation between the cause of this and Ellis’ dog smell.

This weekend we went out to St. Charles to celebrate Xmas with Ho-Ho and the Ds. It was great fun and Ellis was, of course, the center of attention.

Ellis hearts Ho-Ho
He also loves him some Auntie D.

During the drive home Ho-Ho told us about how she went through a bottle of gel in two weeks and thus had to spend her laundry money onĀ  more gel.

Breathe.

Wise words? Bring it.
