On the lights... again.
After getting Kelan's heel pricked once again on Saturday... his bilirubin levels were still going up. So, home health brought the lights out to our house. At first we thought he might like them because he liked them in the hospital... but we were wrong. He hates them and it's been hard to keep him under them. We've been opting to lay him in the sun through a window instead because he seems to prefer that, when that option is available. We've completely given up at night keeping him in them because he would rather sleep snuggled up to me in my bed. I'll take that if he'll sleep soundly that way. I'm actually currently awaiting a phone call back from his pediatrician to see if the levels he got from being pricked this morning are okay to take him off. I can only hope.
So, because Kelan has these lights and it's kind of difficult keeping Cohen away from something so interesting... we've had to improvise.
Kelan is like an exhibit at the zoo for Cohen to oogle at. :) Whatever works, right? I just hope that Cohen doesn't learn to scale that crib anytime soon. He's so close that if he worked hard, he could probably do it.
Cohen had us all laughing at him when he was smushing his face up against the mesh of the porta-crib...
The kids thought Cohen was so funny, that they had to join in too.
I asked Cohen if he wanted his picture taken and he nodded. It's a new thing, but he nods or shakes his head according to what he wants and it's really cute.
I couldn't believe he actually held still willingly for me. Maybe he will get easier as he gets older. I've been beginning to wonder!
