This isn't a great picture and you can't see very well, but the other morning we work up to Diya's face looking like this:
MOSQUITOES! They are BAD this year! We've had more rain this August than we have had in 15 years! All that extra rain means there are extra mosquito breeding grounds -ugh! Dengue fever is bad this year! According to the newspaper, this time last year there were 4 reported cases of Dengue, but this year there are 674! These mosquitoes are tricky! Diya sleeps with a mosquito net, but one tricky mosquito hid in her pack-n-play under the middle level of the bed and bit her... so sad :( Please lift us us and pr that none of us get Dengue fever!!!

I'd take chicken pox over dengue!! Though she does make mosquito bites look cute...and that's hard to do. ;) Praying none of you get dengue!
