So, Pru-bear lost her umbilical cord stump last night. We noticed it was kind of hanging loose during our dinner; later I found it hiding among the folds of her sleeping gown as I was changing her. She’s just got a little scab there now (indisputable visual evidence after the break), which I assume will fall off in a few days, leaving her with a regular navel. She seems very excited, and is getting her gaze all ready already.
Just remember, baby, there’s no going back now – it’s mouth feeding, or nothing.
Taken during this morning’s fun bath-time adventure (of which more later).
