The mosquitoes are still in full swing at our house. Ada calls them bees and thinks it's delightful to watch them fly around in the sunlight, making their small bodies glow. I've been pretty good at arming us against the blood-suckers, but realize that their new favorite sweet spot on Ada is where I don't put bug spray: right around her eyes. She has two bites in her eyebrows and a few right below her eye. Poor girl.
When I pointed this out to Mikey he commented that Ada must have "Mommy's blood" (my ankles and feet are covered). "Daddy's blood gives mosquitoes the 'bitter beer face.'"

They both make me laugh so much. I think I'll keep them around for a while . . .
