Xander has the biggest outie I've ever seen. He might never forgive me for putting this on the internet, but this is what his belly button looks like:
Notice the worried look on his face. But don't you worry, delicate reader, he almost always has that furrowed brow and such an outie doesn't really mean anything. The doctor tells us it's herniated, most likely from the straining he did just to breathe for the first few weeks. But there's nothing to be done about it. It will go away on it's own. It's not painful, it's not damaging. In fact, it can be fun. Push it in and it pops back out, sometimes slowly enough that you can place bets on when it will reach its bulbous heights. Listen carefully and you can here some innards squishing around. He's kinda like a Tickle Me Elmo, but without the red plush.
The other thing I've decided is that Xander looks like Louis CK. Louis CK is a stand up comedian with his own show on FX, had a small part on Parks and Recreation for a few episodes last year, and likes to hang around with Ricky Gervais. This is a photo of the comedian without his standard goatee:
This is Xander Wescott. He's not into the stand up scene yet--it's mostly just lean and fall over--but he can make funny faces and scream at inappropriate times. The only show he's been in is called "Three Pushes: The Story of a Mother's Labor." Unfortunately, it was a stage production that went on live and unfilmed.
Take a close look at the hairlines. It's uncanny. Even moreso just after Xander's had a bath and his hair is all poofy.
Xander is also beginning to lose the hair off the back of his head because of how he sleeps. So now he's growing the bald spot in the wrong place. All the literature these days says "Back is Best." In fact, we've got some velcro sleep sacks for swaddling that have that slogan printed right on the front, as if to remind me every time I put in down to rest. But I wonder, if I allowed him to sleep on his stomach once in a while, would his massive outie become an innie?
