Kaelie has the stork bite on the back of her neck and also has a hemangioma on the palm of her right hand. Its rather large and was quite dark red/purple around the 3 month mark. Now its fading (as the pedi said it would) but its still very noticeable. I took her to see a specialist when she was very small because of its size (1/4 of her palm). She has noticed it now but it doesn't seem to phase her.

Brayden has a stork bite at the back of his head (just like the one that was posted)

He also has a hemangioma a little above and to the right of his belly button (looking at the picture it's to the right, but it's on the left side of his body)
Image
You can also see his scar from surgery up and to the left of his belly button.

Layla has the Mongolian spot too. I think it's cute, especially because I know it goes away over time.

My Bailie had this too up until she was about 2 months old. Someone actually asked me if I had been spanking her. I was like WTF!!? We're both caucasian so I don't know why she had it.

DD1 has a small birthmark on the side of her neck in the nape. Joy. It's pretty dark although I have no pictures of it.

I haven't found one on DD2.

Interesting! I wonder if you have some Asian way way back. Or Native American?

I've heard that it shows ancestry to Genghis Khan, but I have no idea if that is an old wive's tale.

I do have a lot of Native American on my mothers side of the family although you'd never know it by looking at my red hair and pale skin.

Kelly13 wrote:Jason had a stork bite but it has all but faded now, for those of you with LO's that have that, it might still fade yet. It seemed to really only show up when he wore bibs, because it would irritate it.

Then he has two half moons, light colored marks, on each of his thighs, up towards his hips.


You can still see Callum's stork bite on his forehead at 3.5 (he also had one on his neck)!!! 8O Particularly when he is upset. I tend to think it's because he is so ghostly white. :lol:

Finlay had one on his forehead and back of his neck, but they are both long gone now.

I think mediteranean (can't spell...late at night) also have mongolian spots. I had one when i was born and I'm of generally irish, German and Italian roots.


Ds has two hemangiomas, but I only have a pic of one. The other is on his shoulder.
Image

It is actually bigger than this now. I'm hoping it goes away when he is younger rather than older. I'm so afraid people will make fun of him. :( Oh, the comments people make now make me want to scream!!
"Did he take a digger this AM?" WTF? He doesn't walk idiot and NO, it is a birthmark. Strangers ask me about it all the time. GRRRR..

Totally lurking but I had to reply, Órlaith has a sebaceous naevus birthmark over her top lip, its made up of seven little papules in a row. Its tiny but it will have to be removed before she hits puberty because rarely they can turn cancerous.

Lucas has one freckle on his neck. It is the most perfect freckle in the whole world!

So far Anya only has the red mark that I have at the back of her neck. I keep looking for her perfect freckle though. :)

I am super freckly and my mom said they are angel kisses. :)
