Good Morning, Abby-Style

So, I get my usual 5am wake-up call from Abby this morning, and as we sit down in the glider together to give her a bottle, I notice her back is wet. Her diaper leaked, but luckily it was just pee. That definitely woke me up, though! I had to wake up Damon to bring her a clean outfit and change the changing pad cover once we were done because her outfit was so wet she'd soaked the cover too.

THEN, as I'm feeding her, we hear the tell-tale sound of her going poop. Damon recognized it right away, but I've been fooled before so I just thought it was gas.
Once she was done eating, I put her back on the changing pad to check. Sure enough, she'd pooped. We got her cleaned up, and just as I got a fresh diaper under her tooshie, she pooped some more. We went through about 8 diapers because she kept doing this! It was hilarious! I'd clean her up, lift her legs up to get a diaper under her, and she'd poop some more. This wasn't just a little here and there, either. She kept filling diapers! By the time we were finally done, we had to change her clothes and the changing pad cover again! While trying to clean her and hurrying to get a fresh diaper on, I made a mess of her clothes and the cover. I ended up having to do a load of laundry to clean everything up. All the while we were changing her, she looked at us and laughed in our faces.

Jake and I have a problem. We know that Prayer and Unspoken are grandkitties and Snickers is a grandpuppy; but we are not sure what to call Bob. Is Bob the grand light fixture or maybe the grand ceiling light? Please help us determine what to call Bob! I would appreciate it if Paula, Christa, Ed and John would help Damon, Brandi, Jake and I determine the correct family title for Bob.
