Proof- Ronan is Radiant
Ronan's Aunty M, currently doing research in Indonesia, always called Ronan a little "hottie". Now we have the evidence to prove it. We took a couple of snaps with a thermal imaging camera (thanks for the loan, Uncle H!) while Ronan napped and posted them here for you to enjoy. A few notes:
The blanket covering Ronan was a hand-knit gift from a mother of a good friend (B Kaka & family- Ronan won't nap without it!)... knitting aficionados, if you look closely, you can determine the type of stitch used.
You can make out (just barely) Ronan's sleep companion, a plush hippo named Happy (thanks Makena & Maya!), in the upper left corner of the image. Happy's wide nose is the dark blue (cold) because Ronan saturated it with saliva before drifting off to sleep.
Ronan's hair on the sides of his head is thin (red) from his sleep routine that involves a rhythmic rubbing back and forth of his head. On the top it's now nice and thick (blue) and keeps [the top part of] Ronan's head warm (radiative losses low).
