Baby breath. I don't think I will ever smell anything more wonderful. Elodie has the absolute best breath you will ever smell. And I am sure if you breastfeed your baby, you know what I am talking about. I have no idea if it's the same with a formula fed baby, but boy oh boy, does breastmilk smell heavinly coming out my little babe's mouth.
This morning, I wanted to wash a load of towels and so I went into the bathroom to put one of Elodie's towels into the washing machine. My nose was overcome with the scent of something wonderful. I squished the towel up against my nose and deeply breathed in the scent of Elodie. I could smell her breath all over that towel. I must have smelled it two or three times before running into the living room and asking a confused Robert to smell the towel. I don't blame him for not wanting to smell it at first. It wasn't the first time I put something in front of Robert's nose and asked him to smell it. After he put it to his nose though, he too understood why I was so persistant that he smell it. Birds chirped, babies laughed, a rainbow appeared in the sky and the two of us were able to experience heaven for a few moments.
