This summer, we have discovered that JT is apparently quite delicious tasting. Whenever we play outside, he gets mosquito bites within the first few minutes. While I haven't remembered every time, we mosquito repellent has become his saving grace.
Though this time, the repellent wouldn't have helped much- JT's ear was the source of the latest meal. As you will see here, he tends to react pretty strongly, like his Mommy, to bites.
When I first noticed his ear, I couldn't believe what I was seeing!
Might not look too bad in this photo.
Here is the winning shot, poor little guy. He was quite itchy so we applied some cortisone cream and after a little while, he was feeling much better. It took about a day for his ear to return to normal.
