Lane has two new teeth - middle bottom! The little chompers are sharp and still pretty tender but he likes to explore everything with his mouth. He likes to suck on his blanket and is sucking on his thumb more and more. Baby food is going well, we have not found anything that he refuses to eat - not really suprised.
Lane and I went to the swimming pool today. He was not so sure about it. He wimpered most of the time, it was a little too cold for his liking. He never cried though so I think it was a success. We stayed for about 25min. By then he was literally falling asleep. He slept while I changed him out of his trunks and into a dry diaper.
It turns out that Lane's horn is actually what is called a Sebaceous cyst. The doctor said that she was happy that it was not a solid mass and that it is not something that needs to be removed but can be. I read that they can return though. Normal cysts don't hurt but can potentially become irritated and begin to hurt. Here is a little somenting I looked up about it. Sebaceous cyst - the skin is lubricated by sebaceous fluid. This fluid can build up inside a pore or hair follicle and form a hard lump filled with thick, greasy matter. Treatment includes drugs, draining the cyst with a small needle, or surgical removal. Sebaceous cysts are common on the face, back, scalp and scrotum.
Lane is already five months old. He is growing SO fast. As Matt likes to say "he is a thick burger." He started eating real baby food this past weekend. Although it might look like he does not like his green beans - he opens his mouth like a little bird when I feed them to him. We brought Lane in today for a CT scan of his little horn and should get the results back in the next day or so.
