Asher had his 2 month check up yesterday with Dr. Staublin. He's doing great - 10 lb, 12 oz, and 23 inches long. The Dr. told us that, because babies are obviously not exposed to light before they are born, the pigments in their skin can take several weeks to really show up. Because of this, birth marks often start appearing around 8 weeks. Earlier this week I noticed a small brown spot on Asher's knee that wasn't there before. In fact, when he was born, we couldn't find any marks on him. Since we don't have him on his tummy and naked very much (as in never - it's cold!), we noticed a more prominent birth mark at his check up. It's actually sort of a reverse birth mark. On his back, just above his right hip, Asher has a large spot that's WHITE!
