When birthmarks change over time, many parents worry that it is a sign that it represents something worrisome. In this case, however, you are describing a very common (and very normal) hemangioma, often referred to as a strawberry hemangioma because of the raised appearance.
The changes that you've already noted - going from spotty, to more filled in, to actually raised, are all normal. You can expect for it to grow in size for up to the first 12-18 months of life, and then they naturally start involuting, or going away on their own. Even though they grow initially, they eventually go away to the point that at some point during early childhood, you will no longer be able to see it at all. Imagine that - a vanishing birthmark!
