And Leon’s getting laaaaaaarger.

4 Feb

This post is dedicated to my dad, Mr. Dennis Johnson, fisherman extraordinaire.

I took Ye Wee Seabass to Dr. Awesome this week to figure out why his angry red bum rash isn’t retreating.  As per protocol, the nurse weighed him and discovered that Ye Wee Seabass is actually not-so-wee.  At less than 9 months of age, he weighs 26 pounds.

This news inspired the following:

  • A Google search for what a real 26-lb sea bass looks like.  I found a shot of this man (his name is John, apparently) holding his freshly-caught 26-lb sea bass in his right hand.  Disgustingly, this photo was found on a fish story site by the name of  Ew.

See how his right arm is straining? Yeah. I carry that around ALL DAY LONG.

  • The discovery of a type of sea bass called the Goliath Grouper Sea Bass.  If you have the patience to withstand the EXTREME DRAMA of the following clip of a big game fisherman catching a Goliath Grouper Sea Bass, you will not be sorry.  I promise.  The music alone is worth it.  Oh, but be warned that it might make you want to wretch.
  • The revisiting of a clip from the movie Airplane! 

‘Nuff said.  Happy Friday.

    Have you had Seabass checked for food allergies? We didn’t find out that Anna was extremely allergic to dairy and eggs till she was 9 months old. Before that our Dr.s prescribed the severe colic and bum rashes as part of reflux. Turns out she was just allergic to the things I was eating and transfering to her with breastmilk. We only found her allergy when she had an anaphylactic reaction to cheese. Just a thought- in case you had not looked into that possibility yet.

      Hi Kerrie! Not officially, no. That’s a great idea.

    Not sure if you are using disposables, but my kids were allergic to the ‘stuff’ that gelled when it got wet. Took us a long time to figure it out. many painful, red, sore days and nights.

    You think your left arm is straining? Wait til he’s 15 and you’re holding your grocery bill.

    I have a girlfriend for Seabass! My niece was in the 100th percentile for height and weight at her 1 year checkup recently. I forget how big that makes her, but she’s huge.

    Teething can cause Bum rash. Something about the urine being more acidic. So your baby’s name is Leon ‘eh???? He’s heavier than my Hannah, and she’s 19 months old today.

    Your Seabass is a LOT cuter! Even if he’s teething and has rash.
