Heat wave

The past couple of days have been incredibly hot and humid.   I typically dislike such warm weather. However, I'm thankful for this warm spell because it revealed something very important.  Baby Chuck normally wears long pants because we worry that he'll scratch up his legs.  (His eczema is mostly under control now, but he still gets red patches and itchy elbows and legs from time to time.) 

With 90+ degree weather outside, it seemed criminal to dress him in long pants.  So, I began dressing him in lighter and lighter clothing... until he ended up like this:

And guess what?  He didn't scratch his legs at all.
Is this the end of long pants?  
Are there shorts in his future?  
I sure hope so!


  1. I'm so glad that baby Chuck's eczema is under control. You guys are doing such a great job! Happy baby happy life. Well, it doesn't quite flow as if we were using the saying, happy wife happy life. : )
