Outie Belly button and Joker-esque cut

Kaitlin was born with an umbilical hernia which basically means the muscles surrounding her belly button are weak and need time to develop properly – apparently this happens to 20% or so of newborns. It will go away eventually without any help (or surgery) but until then, it looks pretty funny. You can push on it and it goes back in, but then when she coughs or sneezes (or more realistically — cries) – it pops right back out again.

Kaitlin also managed to scratch herself pretty good. It looks like Heath Ledger as the Joker in Batman. Unfortunately they both really hate wearing mittens, so we have to be more careful with trimming their nails constantly. Its already healing and shouldn’t leave any permanent marks, but in the mean time it looks terrible.
