I will wait until your ovaries stop aching… I know… right? I have been taking these monthly photos… like I did for the first two but I haven’t got a chance to share many of them on the Gram or here on the blog so I thought I would finally take a moment and share some “Awwww” worthy shots from a few weeks ago. I feel like I have totally been robbed of the “new phase” This guy might only be 3 months old but he is wearing 9 months across the board. His weight gain has not slowed down and I get told daily how huge he is. It makes me secretly sad because as many of my mommy readers know… they don’t stay little for long… and this littleness has the shelf life as long as a loaf of bread from whole foods. SHORT guys. TOO short.
Little guy has an umbilical hernia – but don’t worry it doesn’t hurt him. It is getting smaller by the day – it popped up just before he turned 6 weeks old. Rhyker had one as well but it took FOREVER to self resolve just after he turned 6 months. We haven’t bound it or anything, just letting it do its thing. I have read about binding it but it just seems too uncomfortable so we decided to just keep our eye on it instead. I know it looks painful but since we have been through this before I now know it’s just cosmetic. If your little one is going through the same thing the most important thing is make sure it stays soft and does not change color at any point. Also it should be able to be pushed in with no pain – if any of those things occur be sure to have your little one seen STAT.
