"Does he have an owie (I have no idea how you spell that word)?"
"What is that (as they point at his head)?"
These are the most common comments that I get when I take Sully somewhere. These comments are not confined to acquaintences but are extended from strangers of all ages. At first it really bothered me and I felt self-concious about my baby (if that makes any sense). In fact, I often stared at it, rubbed it, pressed on it in those first few weeks that it seemed to be growing so big so fast. No, he was not born with it but it is still considered a "birthmark". Here is a not so good pictoral documentary of the hemangiomas growth.
