They're at it again!!!

Just look at what those stupid mosquitos have done to my beautiful baby boy!!!
Saturday morning
Right after he woke up from his nap on Saturday
Sunday morning

I have got to do something about these stupid mosquitos around my house. My poor little baby Luke is just getting attacked!! He was outside one late afternoon with Mike for like 4-5 minutes and got about 6 huge bites on his legs. I forgot to take pictures of those ones. So we've been remembering to put on the bug spray everytime we take him outside evern for a few minutes.

So I was out front picking cherries off our cherry tree so I could make a pie (yummy sour cherry pie!!). Luke was running around with Cameryn in the front yard (mosquitos aren't as bad out front) and around our cars. I didn't put any bug spray on him cuz we were out front and he was fine while with Cameryn. He comes over to where I am on the side of the house picking cherries and he's stealing them out of my bowl to eat them. Next thing I know, I'm smacking mosquitos off him and I left and right. Finally after they got him right on his eyelid (and I killed that one for sure- it left blood on his face), I pick up the bowl, him and tell Cameryn to come inside. I got about 3-4 bites and somehow he only got two of all the ones I killed while landing on him but the one on his eye is just awful, as you can see. That's the way they all get but this one is especially bad cuz he's rubbing his eye and it's just way more sensitive right there next to his eye.

I've been putting Calamine lotion on it and we give him Benedryl but it doesn't seem to help too much. There has to be something that I can do for him!! I think I'm going to take all the pictures I took last year from all his many bug bites and the ones from this year and go to the city to try to get them to spray in this area. There is this very small creek around here and we also have a storm drain right next to our house. I don't know where they are coming from exactly but I know we aren't the only ones with a problem around here. I just hate those stupid bugs!!!!
