Geoff suggested peach.  Christy wondered about pear.  I contemplated lemon.  We were all in the wrong category.  As of 13 weeks, Baboo is……..a jumbo shrimp!!  And you KNOW whom that makes me think of…??!


My fave Pepe commerical for Long John Silver’s a few years ago was when he said , “Eeeez public relations, non?”  I actually just found a site with the commericals on it so GET EXCITED! 


For more humor, below is the link to Pepe’s screen test. 


A Lab Visit Retrospective

Filed under: Baby Kenton, Blog — emkenton @ 8:51 am

At the end of May, I went to the doctor’s office for my first appointment.  It was an extensive individual consultation with the OB nurse and ended with me getting sent to the lab to get “some” blood drawn.   Well, “some” turned out to mean “10 vials” and “10 vials” quickly turned into “one very out-of-it patient.”

Since the only other time I remember having blood drawn resulted in the use of smelling salts, I was able to give the technicians fair warning.  Thankfully, they wheeled out the big recliner chair for me.  The woman did a great job of trying to distract me while sucking up all my lifejuice into her vials but ’round about the 5th one, I started feeling very woozy.  She hurried up to finish and got her colleague to come look at me.  Apparently they decided I was WAY too pale and went to get the nurse from my previous appointment to check on me.  She stayed with me for about 10 minutes until, as she said, “my freckles came back.”

Now, it wasn’t all bad.  I did finally learn my blood type after all these years.  Also discovered I appear to be pretty healthy.  The weird thing, though, was that the test for immunity to Rubella came back as “non-immune”.  I immediately ran to our file cabinet where I pulled out my C-PP School District Immunization Record and it showed two MMR immunizations: one when I was an infant and one 10 years later.  Lifetime immunity, yeah right!!  When I went in to meet with the doctor the next week, he told me that immunity wearing off has become quite common.  Some women are immune in their first pregnancies but are no longer immune by #3.  Of course, you can’t get the vaccine once you’re already preggers, so you just have to hope you don’t contract Rubella since there’s a high probability of birth defects if contracted in the first trimester.   So if there’s anyone out there considering having kids at some point in the future– I recommend getting tested for immunity BEFORE you have a Baboo.  (Not that you’ll have Baboo, of course.  (S)he’s a Kenton!!)

I wonder who shops here?  Clearly it is time for me to have this baby.  Way too much time on the internet.  And I’m tired of working. 

Furry Lewis takes a shower

Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 8:41 am

Furry Lewis doing what she does bestFurry Lewis is one of our cats.  2 days ago, we had a huge rainstorm, and she elected to stay outside in the downpour, rather than come inside, like a normal cat.  Never mind that she hates water and being wet.  The sight of Travis holding an open umbrella outside was enough to spook her into running off.  After the storm was over, a very pathetic looking FL showed up at the back door to be let in.  At least I think it was her. Not only was she wet, but also very muddy, so clearly her hiding place of choice was a poor one.  Her day got even worse when we realized that there was no way to just wipe off the mud. So FL got to take a shower with Travis and get a good scrubbing with cat shampoo.  She managed to get in a few good kicks, ninja-style (flipping her back foot over her shoulder to slash him in the chest), but otherwise, both FL and Travis were relatively unscathed by the experience. She also goes into cat quarantine until she’s somewhat dry after a bath/shower, otherwise she makes a beeline for her litter box (think donut with the worst sprinkles ever).  In the end, she looks cleaner now than she has in months
