Glow Worm

I mentioned the other day that little Ashton is on a "bili-light" to eliminate the jaundice that some babies have at birth. This is how I found John, sitting with him in the dimly lit living room on the evening our little guy turned a week old. Ashley's recovering slowly, and there's this to deal with, so no one's out walking through the neighborhood with the stroller. It will get better soon. I took John's place after taking this picture, and gave "Mom and Dad" a chance to enjoy a quiet dinner together.
Oh! What a cutie! And he looks so comfie too! :D

At least you won't lose him in the dark with that blue glowing bili-light... hehe

Awwww...that is such a sweet photo. Poor little guy. I hope he feels better soon. Perfect title Louise!

Wow! What a great shot you've captured!
He looks like he's hugging the light :)
Before long all will be normal and he'll be out in that stroller.
Does the light run on electricity or battery?
What a darling! It's good that you are there to give them a well needed break :)
Yay! for Grandparents :D

@skt and everybody...It's not anything painful...he just has to be hooked up to a machine most of the time so far. We're hoping the numbers stay down, & he'll be cut loose tomorrow!

@loey5150 The machine is plugged into the wall. We're so glad we can be here for them at this time..everything's going to be fine soon!

Awwww that's so sweet. Both of my kids were jaundiced for a couple of days after they were born. Back in the day - they didn't have these cool inventions.

amazing isn't it how parents become parents the second they find out they are pregnant. Here they are dealing with jaundice and I bet they are already handling it like pros! i think he looks kindof cute with the blue glowing belly.

The glowing reminds me of the glow worm toys I had as a kid. What a neat invention though! My brother was jaundiced as a baby, and he had to stay in the hospital longer. So cool that they can receive this treatment at home now!

Special moments, and how great that you can capture it in pictures.

Oh, such a precious little glow worm nestled in his daddy's arms! Love this! I'm sure you must have hated taking over as the next set of loving arms :) How wonderful for all that you have three weeks to be on hand to enjoy this gorgeous baby boy...and to record his first weeks of life so beautifully.

Just love this little "Glow Worm" shot!

What a lovely picture, a happy daddy and a blissful little glow in the dark-fellow! I'm sure they're very happy to have you around during these busy first weeks of parenting!

It's a great photo, and Daddy does look like he is enjoying the time with little Ashton. In no time he should be over the need for the light.

Precious! John looks so content!

How sweet! How times have changed with these glow worm lights. Laycee had to have one - looked more complicated than this! Isn't it great that nothing's changed with the little people who use them...just bundles of joy to be held and loved. It looks like Ashton is getting his share of that! Precious moment!

now you REALLY have to check out the glow-worm doll!! he looks so precious. praying he can shed his 'bili-light' soon.
(the one my son had looked like a little suitcase--we couldn't even hold him!) ):

.....such a loving picture---------Dad's smile is beautiful and tender. Hannah was under "billi-lights" too. Once finished, it was soon forgotten!

What miracles modern technology has offered us! Time will go so rapidly that this will be a distant memory before they know it!

That is just precious. He looks like he's glowing with contentment. My oldest was pretty jaundiced when he was born but either they didn't have these then or he didn't quite need it. Either way I had to take him back to the hospital every day for a week to have his levels checked (a painful prick in his heel - or so it seemed to new Mom me!!) This looks so much more stress free!! Hope the recovery continues to go well for everyone.

Well I should have read this picture FIRST and then would have known what the light is. I have never heard of this but the light just totally adds to these pictures.

that adds a little humor to this sweet picture! and i keep forgetting to tell you that my daughter was wrapped in the same blanket when she was born!

This tells such a story....and looks he looks so cozy and safe. Nice to hear that Chimom went through the same thing with Chloe...just so's you don't feel so alone.

Soooooooooooooo sweet!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaw, cutie pie!!!

He is such a sweet little guy. It's obvious he has such a loving family.

John looks so sweet with Ashton in this shot...maybe a little but sleepy-eyed, but so sweet :) I love that you titled this glow worm. Another beautiful and heartfelt addition to your collection Louise!

an awfully cute photo to remember this time - before you know it, these moments will be a distant memory.
posted October 27th, 2010  
Awww....he's so cute...and he does glow! :) John looks so proud! Wonderful picture! My mom said that I was jaundice as well and had to be put under a light. She said that I looked like I had a suntan! hehe! So, maybe Ashton will as well.

this is a sweet photo and so glad you were able to get them to have some time together, besides that way you get to tell Ashton who you are. ;)))) wink and big smiles

Awww. That soft blue light must me comforting as well.

This certainly illustrates better than words what baby Ashton is going through. Dad looks like he is taking it in stride. And so does Baby, for that matter.
posted October 29th, 2010  
Aww! I always wanted a baby night light!!!! :D
