Roman, Mom, Noah

We took Little Man to Eaton Canyon this morning. Our hike started a little after 8:00 and we were back in the car by 10:00. One of the things I forgot to do is put sunscreen on Little Man or bring him a hat. I remembered my hat because Little Man enjoys nothing more than twining his fingers in my hair and yanking.
BAD MOMMY. My baby is a little ruddy cheeked now. He didn't burn any of the weird crib-faulted bald spots because he had a hood on.
Anyhow, I'm looking for good baby sunscreen. We've tried the Mustela Sunscreen which is fabulously gentle on his skin (bonus) but thick in a weird paste sort of way. I like it, but it's so thick to put on that I tend not to unless it's summer and we are actually going outside in the next two minutes.
So, sunscreen advice? Got any?
(ALSO, love several things in this picture: the weird pointiness of my hat. How funny Little Man looks. The fact that Mary the Canary is attached to the baby back pack for the baby's shaking pleasure. If you click on the photo, you can see downtown LA in the way back background. The clearness of the sky. Roman the dog trying to pull away. And I have my Happy Buddha shirt on. But I like this picture of Me and Little Man so much better).
