belly button update

umbilical absenceToday, the last of Grip’s umbilical cord fell off. Fellow parents will recall that new babies have a short, black, icky, clipped stump for their first week or so, which makes cleaning and diaper changing tricky. It’s also an unsettling reminder of the whole body-parts-on-the-outside thing that I got more than enough of via Mom’s c-section, thanks.

Anyway, our little boy’s all grown up!
