Porter can't have "real" baths yet bc his belly button hasn't closed up. It's been cauterized with silver nitrate 3 times now. This last time the pediatrician said he has an umbilical granuloma, but that it should close up this time. If it hasn't closed up totally in a few more days he said we may need to go see a urologist to make sure it isn't his bladder sticking out. I think it looks better and more closed now, but it's hard to tell bc it's all black from the silver nitrate.

So, he gets sponge baths still. Every few days bc he isn't a fan. I think he will like real ones though and I can't wait until we can do it and make it part of our nightly routine!
