...almost gone!  Sawyer's belly button hernia is starting to deflate.  I can actually push it in and it will stay tucked in until his next grunting session.  I had gotten so accustomed to it being there that I really hadn't stopped to examine it for a while.  A friend thoughtfully asked how it was and that made me take a look that night.  Coincidentally, it was his 3-month birthday.  I was so excited to see that it was getting smaller!  I immediately called Wes in so we could do the happy dance together.  It's the small things you know.  I guess the stronger stomach makes for less grunting and straining, and therefore the hole can start closing.  Another 3 months and maybe it will completely be gone!
This is when it's stuck out.

This is pushed in.
