The Smell of Baby
What is it about baby skin that smells the way it does. Sweat and dirt seem to make it even better. Suntan lotion, baby sweat and sand should be bottled. It would sell like crazy.
Do you ever close the doors during naptime just so the baby smell "builds up" in the room so when you open the door, the smell of baby kind of wraps you up and envelops you? I know you sometimes dig your nose into those little baby folds of skin on their necks to drink in the smell. It is beautiful and sweet and everything wonderful about the world. Of course, sometimes babies do that horrible thing they do and you open up the naptime door to a little poop in the pants, which kind of ruins the effect. You know what I'm talking about though - don't you?
Baby smell is the best...and I am so sad my bebe is passing the line from baby to stinky so quickly. I keep holding onto that smell...how many more months will he smell like tiniest one instead of like a growing boy?
