My how things change.  Crankenstein makes an appearance less frequently and the cute cooing and smiling has increased a lot.  Owen continues to get better with his hands, sliming them and trying out different combos of fingers in his mouth.  He also likes to chew on his blanket and is getting better at escaping his swaddle blanket.  He holds his head up at 90 degrees to look in his play mirror.  He even rolled over once and looked pretty surprised when he did it.  He’s napping without his swaddle and likes to bat at toys.  He’s busting out of some of his baby clothes and drools a lot more than before.  He doesn’t poo every time he eats, but unfortunately this can lead to total destruction of a onesie with a massive poo (who knew that digested breast milk stained so badly?)  He doesn’t whack his own head with his hands as much (a nice benefit of storing his hands in his mouth), but did manage to spit up in his own eye.  He’s handling mommy’s transition to work really well and loves hanging out with the nanny during the day.  And he’s loooongg and has a cute round head. 

Late Entry #3 - Work

Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 9:26 pm

I entered a totally new world last month as I went back to work.  I had some part-time days before I resumed my clinical duties.  So I’m back to patients, research, and procedures.  I’ve had to develop even more organization skills than before or I’m late, late, late to work.  Everything must be laid out the night before (clothes, breakfast, lunch, work bag packed) and the shower must be taken at night as the morning is too unpredictable.  Will Owen wake up in time to eat and still leave me time to pump before I go?  Will he wake up and want to be held for a whole hour without being set down?  These are the great mysteries of the morning.  Yes, I am actually writing about being late for work and calling it a ‘mystery’. 

Late Entry #2 - Travel to Arizona

Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 9:24 pm

Owen took his first airplane ride in September when we went to my grandmother’s funeral in
Arizona.  I’m sad that she’s gone, but glad that she was surrounded by her kids when she passed at hospice.  She was a neat lady and sharp (and very stubborn) until the end. 

Owen has proved to be a good traveler, sleeping on the airplane and not minding the 3 hour time change.  In addition to his first airplane flight, it was also his first trip to the desert.  It was also his first time to get checked out by a ferret,  owned by our friends Angus, Julie, Haley, and AJ, who let us stay with them and let my family congregate at their house.  The desert was really pretty and flowers were blooming as it was the ‘monsoon’ season. This means that it rains some, but isn’t like the photos of monsoons in Asia, where people are wading waist deep in water.

It’s been awhile - or “Late Entry #1

Filed under: Baby Dunbar, Blog — Kerry @ 9:22 pm

Travis and I celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary September 11th.  We were actually dating and then engaged for the 5 years previous to that, so I guess you could say we’ve known each other a long time.  One of the first places we sent together was Target.  I needed a pillow and Travis needed a colander, which took a long time to pick out.  Things progressed nicely from there. 

It’s been a loooong time since I posted so get ready for a flurry of blog posts….

Babies, Babies Everywhere

It is funny how I spent 5+ years of marriage absolutely unable to consider the prospect of children without at least a minor freakout and then, when it finally seemed doable, found so many other people ready to have kids, too.   My cousin and his wife introduced Kinsley Meredith yesterday and the day before that, Addison Grace arrived thanks to one of the daughters of my dad’s lifelong best friend.  Another of the daughters is set to give birth any day now, too!  And I also met the newest baby Owen, 2-week old son of my dear grad-school friend Katie, yesterday.  So many babies!

Many of you may know that my favorite kind of story (literary or cinematic) is a coming-of-age one.  I’m always the one fascinated with the idea of what we’re all going to be like when we’re older and who will still be friends with whom, etc.  So of course, I’m wondering which of these babies will become Baboo’s friends!!  Which then leads me to all kinds of worries about how we’re going to make sure that Baboo is kind, gentle, witty, intelligent…..and the list goes on!!  :-)  Okay, enough worries for the day.

Not much else going on here.  Seth doesn’t have school tomorrow because it’s the state teachers’ convention (which no one goes to but they get the day off for it) so he’s looking forward to that.  They will still have football practice and games this weekend, though.  This game against Quince Orchard should be the first really big challenge for the Varsity Stormin’ Warriors who are currently 6-0, and I know it’ll be a tough one for Seth’s team to win, as well.  Should be interesting!
