on bellies and buttons


For the first time in months, my outie is back to an innie.

John lost his belly button cord yesterday. I felt terrible seeing the little stains of blood on his shirt when I pulled it up to change his diaper. As ridiculous as it sounds, my first reaction was to try to put it back.

Did Adam have a navel? Probably so.

Glad your belly button is back "in". And now you don't have to fold over John's diaper to keep it off his! Cool...

BTW, I will be looking for navels in Adam and Eve pictures now.

That's a really good question. I suppose another way to pose the question would be 'Do apes have belly buttons?' or, at least, did the apes that (who?) first started walking upright have belly buttons. I suppose they would have to, and therefore Adam as well.

I just met someone who has a phobia of bellyholes.
