When you give birth to twins there are a million and one people in the room and the babies are whisked away to be examined before the mom can get her hands on them. I still feel so grateful and blessed that my delivery was great, and that the twins were fine.
But when my son, twin A, came blasting out, the first thing my husband said was, “what’s wrong with his ear?!”
Here I am having just pushed out one baby, bracing to push out ANOTHER baby, and I’m now panicked about an ear.
An ear with a gorgeous, adorable dimple!
He actually has them in both ears…the right one looks like a slit and the left dimple looks like an earring hole.
I love them and kiss them on a regular basis.
My father mentioned something about ear creases indicating heart disease (thanks a lot dad!). I found this info:
On One Hand: The Crease Connection
For reasons which are not fully understood, there does seem to be a connection between having a crease in the earlobe and the likelihood of having heart disease. One theory is that the crease is caused by a lack of elastin, which is also a contributor to hardening of the arteries.
On the Other: No Link with Other Risk Factors
Other well-known risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and stroke were not found to be related to earlobe crease. It may be that earlobe creases and heart disease are simply both indicative of advancing age.
A crease in the earlobe does not mean that you currently have or will develop heart problems, although it is an issue to consider. Raise your concerns with your primary care doctor or cardiologist, who will advise you if screening is indicated.

(Aren’t parents great at giving you a reason to worry where you previously had none?!)
Anyway, I just love them. Where my husband asked what’s wrong with the ears I feel they are what’s right about them! I think the little one agrees :) .
Are there any special parts of your child’s body that you adore?
