There was a bit of a brouhaha in the Chicago area recently when a woman did a blog about having a terminally ill baby. It turned out there was no baby — she made it all up.
The hoax was discovered after she posted pictures of herself with a doll, pretending it was her kid. (Damn you, Internet sleuths. There's no putting anything over on you!)
This is bound to increase scrutiny on all baby blogs, so it's probably time for me to come clean myself.
There is no "Elliot." I made him up to get more attention and YouTube visitors.
His pictures are actually just doctored Photoshopped images of this doll.
As you can see, I'm really good at Photoshop.
Also, we actually live in Cedar Rapids.
