Symphony and Bloody Nose

Cooper enjoyed his first symphony performance with Grandma and Grandpa in Seattle today.

This day also ended up marking his first serious bloody nose.  I am not sure what triggered it.  During his nap he started crying and I could see him rubbing the mattress on the camera.  I went in his room to find his hands, feet, clothes and one end of the mattress covered in blood.  Lesson learned: You should no longer tilt your head back with a bloody nose, but instead pinch and hold it for 10 minutes while leaning forward.  In the moment, the old tilt back method worked for us.  It happened again overnight, but the scene wasn’t nearly as gruesome since it appears to have happened while he was sleeping so he didn’t get the chance to spread it everywhere.
