Birthmarks? Other?

Does anyone's kiddo have cool/weird marks?

 

Arlo was born with a birthmark on his chest just like one I have on my stomach. He was also born with I guess what's called a "Mongolian spot" - blue blotch on the booty.

Aoife has a red spot on the back of her head. Seemed to darken over time cuz I don't remember it right when she was born. I don't know if it has a name. The pedi didn't mention it at our first apt. Maybe I'll ask her about it next time.

pink line marks between eyes and in corner of eyelid- seemingly getting lighter though. Here's a pic-P1020716.JPG

greenmama: Kayden has marks like that too. They appeared after he had cradle cap between his eyes and in his eyebrows, so I assumed they were leftover from that. They get darker when he's annoyed or hot smile.gif

wow appeared after cradle cap. J was born with the marks and they were darker at birth- hopefully they will fade.

My guy has what my midwife called a "storkbite" between his eyes.  I'm not sure if I have a photo where it really stands out...

My babe has a webbed toe on his left foot, between the 2nd & 3rd toe. I think it's kinda cool. It's only webbed halfway up the toe.

They call this a stork bite or salmon patches.  Rafe has a bunch of little ones at the base of his neck.
