Amelia's birthmark is called a Pigmented Congenital Nevus. It has lightened quite a bit since birth, but the pigment has seemed to stabilize a bit recently and I think this is about how it is going to stay. She is very fortunate as far as Nevi go, most are much darker and come with a whole series of related health concerns that she does not seem to have. It is not easily removable, only through a long series of very painful surgeries, so for now it will stay right where it is. It is just part of what makes Amelia special.
