The Yellow "Nose" of Texas (or Florida)...

The purpose of this blog is to share our adventures with family and friends. In addition, the purpose of the blog is to provide a way for us to keep our memories of these adventures. So we don't forget this cute little quirk, I think it is important to point out something that some of the astute observers may have already noticed and provide an explanation. If you have not noticed this previously, I apologize for drawing attention to it.

Wesley has a yellow nose. It's not just your imagination, his nose is yellow!! Mike actually noticed this first and brought my attention to it. My original thought was we were not cleaning his face good enough after eating and it was becoming stained. During our 9 month well visit, we asked Dr. Bunnell about his yellow nose. He agreed it was yellow and said it is nothing to worry about. He said that it comes from eating yellow/orange vegetables. He said that this is a result of the way his body metabolises the yellow/orange veggies like squash, carrots and sweet potatoes. He said that the vitamins will pool up in the fat cells and his is just pooling in the tip of his nose.

Again, he said there is nothing wrong and if it was just him, we probably would not even notice it but because he is compared to the pink noses of his brothers, it stands out. It actually looks worse in pictures than it does in person but nonetheless, it is yellow!!

Yellow nose and all, he is still as cute as a button!

Take care,

  1. I've seen this before, but not concentrated in one spot! How cute!

    A little girl I used to care for was a HUGE fan of carrots. Mom had no problem with a love for veggies, and she got a jar of carrot baby food with each meal.

    Needless to say, she had a year round tan! (Albeit, it looked like the tanning bed variety!)


Thank you for caring enough to leave us a message! We enjoy hearing from you!
