I'll never let go, Jack; I'll never let go!

The unthinkable FINALLY happened around 4 this morning...Cille's cord came off!  That's right, our one month and 4 day old daughter was still sporting her umbilical stump.  I guess it was my payback for all those "cut the cord" jokes.  Cille flat refused to give hers up.  Thanks to much diligent work on the part of Mommy and the bottle of alcohol and a couple of sessions of therapy with our wonderful pediatrician, Cille now has a nice, cord-free belly button.  As soon as it is healed up I'll post a picture, since it is still a little irritated from its long ordeal.

Yay! FJ's fell off too soon and it was kind of gooey and yucky. I thought they were going to have to put silver nitrate on it. We had to put an antibiotic on it for a couple of days.
