There is a question in the Manies-Geiger ("Maniger") household whether Ryan is only kept around for his painting skills. Here is an action shot of him painting the nursery. The stripes seemed like a good idea...until you actually had to paint each one of them.

Turkey Trot

How many 30 week pregnant women do you know that run 5K's? On Thanksgiving morning Paige and I ran the Parkville Thanksgiving Turkey Trot 5K. Even with the "extra cargo" she's carrying around in her, she still finished with the very respectable time of 35 minutes 07 seconds. Great job!


Because Paige is so small, you can really see the progression of her pregnancy. Here are photos of Paige on weeks 7, 16, 20, 31 and 37.


All of the invitations for the multiple baby showers were very creative. The ticket invitations were appropriate given the amount of basketball and football games we attend each year. Thank you everyone for your hard work.

33 Weeks

Today Paige is 33 weeks. According to WebMD, **** should measure about 19.4 inches from head to toe and weigh about 4.4 pounds. He will gain more than half of his birth weight in the next 7 weeks. 7 weeks?!?!?! The website says he will actually move less now as he runs out of room and curls up with knees bent, chin resting on chest an arms and legs crossed. Given Paige's size, he likely has very cramped quarters. WebMD says that by now she has gained between 22 and 28 pounds. Uh...make that 28 minus 13. He should be the size of honeydew.

When **** is born, this is where his life will be profiled.
