Ticker Tock: 34 Weeks

Ahhh, closer and closer still! I'm really very impatient to arrive. I hear The Moms and Nana doing something everyday to get ready for me. Yesterday, Nana washed and dried all my clothes and Mum folded them all up - I heard her oohing and aahing over my little socks and snuggling her face into my blankets. And then Mama joined in and she and Mum put all my clothes away with even more oohing and aahing! There's so many fun and exciting things to explore out there and so many wonderful people. It's so hard to be stuck in here with just this cord for company! But Mum made me promise to be patient. Just a few more weeks. . .

Ticker Tock: Weeks 32 and 33

Week 32:
I gotta be honest with you, week 32 was pretty boring. All the excitement happened in week 33, so read on. . .

Week 33:
So like I said, week 32 was pretty boring. I was still a squash, Nana had been visiting, but had left, and there was really nothing very entertaining going on in here. I could hear The Moms laughing and oohing and aahing over little clothes for me, and fun toys for me, and books, books, books galore for me, and I just couldn't take it anymore! I had to bust outta this place! So I huffed and I puffed and I tried to bust my way out. . . and unfortunately got Mum and I sentenced to a three-day stay in the hospital. I just didn't want to wait any longer to be with my family, but I didn't know my impatience would create so much havoc. Now Mum's on bed rest and she takes every opportunity to give me a lecture in patience. When you think about it, if she and Mama didn't make life with them sound so fun, I wouldn't be so impatient! I really can't wait to meet my family, but I guess I'll try a little harder to be patient. Just a few more weeks now. . .

Ticker Tock: 31 Weeks (October 30- November 5)

I'm still a squash and feel like I may be one forever, but I just have a few weeks before I get to meet my family, so I can't complain. We're down into the single digits, weekwise: just NINE weeks!! Oh how I can't wait!!

This week's been pretty busy, but kinda lowkey. Nana's here, which is fun. She stayed after the shower to help Mum at an upcoming show so we've gotten to spend a lot of time together. She'll be leaving soon, but will be back around about the time I'm making my appearance, so I'll get to meet her in person right away, which is super exciting!! Nana's already warned me that The Moms are a little bit crazy and The Moms have warned me that Nana's a little bit crazy, so I just can't wait to meet her! I know I'll fit right in!! Tee hee!!

Ticker Tock: 30 Weeks (October 23-29)

Ahh, I'm still a squash, but I don't even care because I got to go to my very first party - and it was thrown in MY honor!! Super Uncle Jeff hosted a baby shower for me - and a Halloween themed one at that! Uncles Jeff, Cory, and Ken decorated our church fellowship hall with lots of delightful Halloween decorations, made lots of beautifully scary food, and my whole family and church family came (except my Uncle Joel who had to work, but he was there in spirit!)! Oh, it was just the BEST time ever - I can't wait for the next party I get to go to once I'm on the outside! Tee Hee!!

Real FINGER sandwiches! Tee hee!!

The Moms and me with our hosts.
Mum's costume shows what's in her tummy (me)
and Mama's costume shows what's in hers! Tee hee!!

Vampire Mice!

The prettiest fall/Halloween/baby shower cake ever!

The Moms enjoying a finger or two! They're pretty crazy
and I can't wait to meet them!!

A Note from Mum: I apologize for the tardiness of the posts for weeks 30 and 31. I've had a stressful couple of weeks and have gotten behind in posting Zordan's updates.

Ticker Tock: 29 Weeks

I've graduated to a squash this week! Yippee!! It feels like I was an eggplant FOREVER!! It's the perfect time to be a squash, too: fall!! I think this may be my favorite season yet - of course I've only really experienced summer so far and still being safely inside my Mum, I haven't really gotten to get out and FEEL the weather of either season. But, The Moms love fall best, so I think I do too!

Right now, The Moms are getting ready for a fun, fun weekend! Super Uncle Jeff is throwing us a baby shower at our church - so fun! It's Halloween-themed and Nana, Grampa, and Gigi will all be there, too! Aunt Kym will be coming too, so I'll get to meet her for the first time! So exciting!! The Moms won't even tell me what their costume is, but I know it will be something super fun - that's how they are! Tee hee!! I can't wait!!

One other exciting thing - in a lifetime of everyday excitements - is that I "sat" for my first professional photo shoot! Tee hee!! Ms. Diana, a friend of The Moms, owns a wonderful photo studio, Memento Photo Studio. We met Ms. Diana at a pretty park and took a bunch of pre-world-entrance portraits of me - The Moms are in most of them as well! Tee hee!!

I have to say, I think my favorite of these is the "ZORDAN" one! So fun!

Ticker Tock: 28 Weeks

I'm an eggplant still, but I don't even care. This weekend I got to meet my Grampa and Gigi! They came to help The Mom's put together my very first pieces of furniture. Oh what a treat! I can't wait to meet them when I'm on the outside, but for now, I'm just happy to have gotten to spend the weekend with them - and get glimpses of my new room! Tee hee!!

Mama and Grampa celebrating over the completion of my changing table.

Another celebratory high-five over my pretty, pretty crib!

I tried to kick Grampa really hard, but alas, he couldn't feel me.
Soon, Grampa, soon! I promise!

My crib - all dressed and ready for me!
Mum and I were too busy instructing Grampa and Mama in the construction of my furniture to be in many of our pictures and Gigi was too busy taking the pictures, so didn't get in any of them! No matter - I'll remember this weekend fondly and I'm sure The Moms will tell me the stories of this weekend for a long time to come!

Ticker Tock: 27 Weeks

Ahh, 27 weeks, just 13 to go! I'm still an eggplant this week, but I'm not complaining! It's a busy week for Mum. I don't know what's going on, but we're constantly in motion this week. I like it - it rocks me to sleep - but Mum's feeling pretty tired! And, regardless of what my ticker says, I had a major growth spurt over the last couple of weeks, so Mum's doing a lot of work right now, just carrying me around! Grampa and Gigi are coming for a visit this weekend, though, so we all have a LOT to look forward to! They bought me a crib and changing table and are joining The Moms to put it all together this weekend. I haven't gotten a peek at my room yet, but I know The Moms and friends have been working really hard to get it ready for me! Just 13 weeks and I am SO excited!! Tee hee!!
