My Buddy, the Button on my Belly


Hello my friend, “belly button.” I can always count on you being there no matter what. I remember one day, not long ago, that I first noticed you there. I was just splashing around in the bath and there you were, right in the middle of my belly. You are there every time that I look, and I make sure to check just to make sure that you didn’t go away over and over every single day. You are. You never go anywhere.

Mama and Daddy and my big sister Addie and my big, big sister Lilli, and my giant brother Jonah all seem to have them, too. Mama said something about that being the way that I used to be connected to her while I was in her belly, but I couldn’t really understand what that meant because a little round dot on your belly doesn’t seem to be able to connect to anything. I heard her say something about a cord that used to be there, though, and I know all about those because they are the magical things that charge stuff up in our house like the phones and the computers. From what Mama said, she used to charge me up too with that cord while I was in her belly. I kind of wish she could still charge me up, but she says I am able to charge myself up now with sleep and food.

Mama reads me The Belly Button Book by Sandra Boynton a lot now, and I completely get why all of those little hippos are in love with their belly buttons because I am too, and I know why they sing that song about them all the time. “Belly belly button you’re oh so fine, ooo, belly button, I’m so happy you’re mine.” I feel exactly that way about you, little round button friend on my belly.

About doriandean

My name is Dorian Annabel. At 3-years-old, so much is new. I want to see, hear, and smell it all. I don't quite understand the "Internet" yet, but Mama says it's a way to see and touch the world, so I'm in. Since I'm still a little baby, my Mama and Daddy, Amy and Spenser Dean, are helping me to create this blog. My fingers just don't work quite fast enough yet.
