Lil' Genghis, future world leader Lilypie Fifth Birthday tickers

The horde is coming soon

... it'll come from inside her womb.

The next two verses of our little Lil' Genghis song are censored for mom's sanity.

The doctor just called, told us he'd looked over the records, and decided he wants to start getting the ball rolling on Monday, with our little daughter likely arriving Tuesday. She could still arrive earlier than that, of course, but we'll find out.

Every sign points to Lil' Genghis being healthy, energetic and ready to go. She's just hanging around in the oven, trying to bake a little bit more.

There's a holiday in America called Thanksgiving, where everyone gets together, enjoys each others' company and offers their gratitude, their thanks, for everything that's happened.

We're about to have our Thanksgiving with Lil' Genghis, and it's an exciting time.

Now, most Americans cook a big turkey for Thanksgiving. Sometimes, these are decorated with a 12-cent pop-up thermometer, which shows when it's time to remove the turkey from the oven. They look something like this:

As Lil' Genghis grows within Suze, things are getting cramped in her belly. There's less and less spare room, and something has to give. In a way, Lil' Genghis is telling us she's just about ready to come out of the oven. mom's belly button, always an "innie," is starting to pop out showing that her daughter is just about done cooking.

Our little girl is almost here.


  • Are you SURE you can't hold out until ...... oh say ....... a week from Saturday? You almost gave me March 5, so go for the National IRISH Day!

  • Sooo it's about time: lil' girl well-done. Hey, it's really cool celebrate birthday by the 13th! Su, I won't ask you to hold her up, just a few more days... you'd probably beat the crap out of me. It's amazing how pregnant women can increase they're physical strenght! Right, Mike?

  • So, I REALLY shouldn't tell you that my mother severely bruised my dad when she was in labor with me, right?
    Don't worry, I'm sure Suze will take it easy on you. Right, Suze? Suze? PUT DOWN THE HAMMER!
