Making progress!

There's a lot of signs of progress within the family.

Lil' Genghis, the doctor says, has finally flipped. Not gone nuts -- we have no proof of that, not yet -- but flipped upside down, out of breech position, meaning she's ready to make the big run.

Lil' Genghis doesn't appear quite ripe just yet, though, and will likely stay on the vine a bit longer than we had been led to expect. Lotta confusion with the doctor, who now predicts something like March 12-March 16. She's been full-term since Sunday, so whenever she goes for it, she should be just fine.

Other signs of progress in the family are more academic.

Aunt Claudinha, the brave young woman who lived for a while alone with a big Rottweiler named Thor, has translated her love of animals into a veterinary degree. She's now one of three doctors in that immediate chunk of family, following Uncle Eddie and their dad. We had a nice picture of her from a yearbook kinda deal, but it sorta got misplaced on the way to turning our bedroom into part nursery.

dad, five months late, received his latest degree in the mail: a M.A. in B.S. ... er ... a master's in journalism.

Last, but not least, Aunt Becky's sister, Jenny, graduates this Thursday from Quartermaster school, not long after making lieutenant and getting an MBA. That's preparation for her deployment to Tal Afar, which sounds like a scenic vacation spot but ... isn't.

Best wishes to the graduates!


  • No no, the M.A. in B.S. is right ....
    I can't wait to meet the new little one! Yay!!!!!!!!!

  • You finally got the degree. Fabulous dahling.......I should get mine in time for my grandchildren to frame it. Of course by then, I'll have lost my mind.

  • DR, dear buddy ole chum --

    How could you lament losing your mind now? You've always cherished its absence.

    Leeanne -- by meeting the new little one, do you perchance mean "change the diaper for a day"? =)
