Hello, belly button 🙂
For nine months, we are connected by this cord, transporting oxygen and nutrients from me to you. It has become our faithful lifeline, providing you with life itself.
Nine days after your birth, it dropped off on its own, revealing your cute belly button.
Ow, how little progress like this still excites me. Perhaps because I only have you to care for and no work to think about. Or maybe because you have charmed me too much that everything about you amazes and excites me.
Anyhow, this only means that we could finally give you a more comfortable bath without worrying to wet your umbilical cord.
Tomorrow then will be an enjoyable bath!
* This was August 16, 2015. Our Yael is only nine days old. This mama is excited over almost anything that she records everything. Hope you find and read this someday soon, my Yael.
