Day 15 - Umbilical cord is gone, but where?

For the past couple of days I had been wondering when Little Elvis' umbilical cord would fall off. We have taken great pains to avoid it when giving him a sponge bath (which he doesn't like), but it seemed to want to stick in there.

This morning, Bob took the baby to change him and then left for work while I was feeding him. I took him for a change shortly after that and realized the cord was gone! I didn't know if it had popped off while I was feeding him or before.

I called Bob extremely excited, but he had noticed it before he left. Although we're both pretty excited about this, we have no idea where the cord actually is. It shouldn't be hard to spot, but I haven't seen it yet this morning.

I keep thinking of a "Sex and the City" episode where Miranda's baby loses his umbilical cord and the cat starts playing with it. I'm convinced one of ours will attempt this. So far I haven't noticed anything...

I'll let you know if and when I find it.
