Well since that appointment the spot has gotten bigger and gone from flat to raised with jagged edges. It looks like a potentially cancerous mole. Needless to say we were concerned and rather than wait for his two month check-up we decided to take him in now to get it looked at. Better to be safe than sorry. I didn't really think it was Cancer but I did think they would tell us that it needed to be removed to prevent it from turning into something serious.
I'm VERY happy to say that not only is the spot NOT cancerous but it doesn't even need to be removed. Turns out that Hunter has a Hemangioma which is basically a red patch of blood vessels that grows during their first year but eventually fades away on it's own. As soon as the doctor saw it he immediately knew what it was and put us at ease.
Here's a picture of Hunter's Hemangioma
Fortunately it's on the top of his head and his hair covers it so it's not really noticeable.
I'm very happy we went ahead and took him in so that we didn't have to spend the next two weeks until his two month checkup worrying. I don't think anyone wants to be one of those hypochondriac type of parents but with a baby, especially your first, if you ever have any concerns about their health better to call or take them in and get it checked out.
We also found out when we took him in that our little 7 week old has gained FOUR pounds and grown two inches since birth. He was 7lbs12ozs when he was born and yesterday weighed in at 11lbs 12ozs he's also now 22.5 inches long. Kid has a hearty appetite! It does make me a bit sad that he's getting so big so fast!
Also, for your viewing pleasure he's a video I took this morning of my little guy full of smiles.
