Ticker Tock: 26 Weeks

Ahh, 26 weeks along, just about 14 to go! So exciting!! But, unfortunately, I'm still an eggplant this week. Now I've got to say, I'm a generally patient baby - I haven't complained at all about the 40 weeks I have to spend in pretty boring surroundings - but if there's one thing I really look forward to week-by-week, it's finding out what fruit or veggie I am! Three weeks as a papaya and now the second week as an eggplant! So, once again, I've gotten Mum to find out what else I'm the size/weight of this week! Tee hee!!

  • A two pound chuck roast - OK, no one in the house knows what a chuck roast is. Mama thinks it's some part of a cow, but we're not 100% sure.
  • The length of a burp cloth - Now we DO know what those are!
  • As long as a cucumber
  • And, yes, once again, the family favorite: About the size of a tiny baby!
Well, regardless of how big I am this week, I do have exciting news: I can see!! I've been trying to get my eyelids open for weeks now and I finally did it!! I can finally see what's around me!!! If only there was a little more light in here. . . or there were a few more interesting things to look at! Tee hee!! Well, at least I'm all set to get a good look at my Moms and all of you - oh, I can't wait!!

Ticker Tock: 25 Weeks

Ahhh, I'm finally out of the papaya-stage!! I'm a beautiful, beautiful eggplant this week!! So exciting! I think I'm just thrilled to no longer be a papaya!! I have been busy growing and getting ready to greet the world, though - it's making me pretty tired!

This weekend, I joined The Moms for our first childbirth class - very fun! I already know what needs to happen, but this is pretty new to them! It was fun being with all the other babies-to-be and watching all the parents-to-be learn how to bring us into the world! Oh, I just can't wait!! Tee hee!

Ticker Tock: 24 Weeks

I'm starting to really dislike papaya. Yes, that's right, according to my ticker, I'm papaya again this week. It's just my opinion, but I think the ticker creators could have come up with something creative  for these last few weeks instead of boring us with papaya after papaya - a never-ending papaya story.

My great-aunt Jan passed away over the weekend. I know Mum and Nana have been really sad. It's interesting being a yet-to-be-born baby - I get to live both on heaven and on earth, so I've met my sweet and funny Great-Aunt Jan. Before finding out that Aunt Jan had passed, Mum, Mom, and Nana were talking on Friday about Great-Aunt Jan teasing Mum about her squeaky voice and hoping that she would tease me about mine when we met. Honestly, we were too busy giggling for much talking - though she did teach me some secret naughty things to do to drive The Moms crazy! Tee hee! Be happy and raise a ruckus in Heaven, Great Aunt! We love you!

Ticker Tock: 23 Weeks

Ahh, twenty-three weeks along and I'm the size of a . . .papaya! Still! Now, we all remember that I was a papaya last week, so I got Mum to help me with a little Internet research and I guess I'll be the size of a papaya for the next few weeks! Pretty boring if you ask me. So, with a little more prodding, Mum found out some other things I'm the size/weight of for this week:
  • Size of a small doll
  • Size of a winter squash
  • Weight of a large mango
  • My favorite: Size of a full-size Nalgene water bottle (I like this one! The Mom's have their Nalgene's constantly by their sides!)
  • Length and weight of a Harry Potter book
  • Size of a loaf of bread
  • Mama's Favorite: Length of an ear of corn (Mama's favorite food!)
  • Mum's favorite and the most hilarious: "Your baby is roughly the size of a real tiny baby." (Come on, really?!)
I think that last one really captures it: I'm the size of a tiny baby, though if you ask Mum, I have the feeling that "tiny" isn't exactly how she'd describe me! Tee hee!!
