Baby neck

A few days ago, a co-worker and I got on the subject of babies. I mentioned to her how addicted I am to smelling Sarai's neck (I'm addicted to smelling the neck of any baby, actually) - she smells like "baby" still, even though she's technically a toddler. I feel I need to sniff her as much as possible before the newness wears off. Because, of course, adults don't smell like "baby" at all. I wondered out loud why babies smell that way - so good and clean and "new." She replied, "They smell like GOD." I like that idea. Babies are newly arrived - they're the closest things to GOD . . . and they smell like Him.

That is such a sweet idea. Babies smell like God! Oh man you just hyped up my baby fever by 10 degrees!

You know, I mentioned baby neck to a pair of my (male) coworkers and got the blank stare. Even though they both have kids, they were clueless as to what I was talking about. They see things so differently!
