First, the baby update:
Our little girl (maybe) has been getting bigger and stronger so very quickly. She kicks me all the time, especially in the evenings when I am relaxing at home. She is usually pretty quiet at work, but I have a fun thing to share with you all. On Tuesday, Jonathan brought my lunch to me at school. He was telling me about his plans for the evening and the baby started kicking like crazy! I think she recognizes Daddy's voice! My books say that her hearing is very well developed by now and she is beginning to open her eyes so she is much more sensitive to light and sounds. She may even be able to recognize mine and Jonathan's voices! It is so exciting to notice how she grows and changes. We are now 27 weeks. I start my third trimester next week. The pregnancy seems to be going very slowly and very quickly at the same time. We will be a family of three in just three short months!
Now for our adventures and some more pictures:
This past weekend, we had many adventures! On Friday we went pear picking in Wakasa Town. On Saturday we went to the Dinosaur Museum in Katsuyama, Fukui (about 3 hours northeast of where we live) with two of our friends from Obama. And on Sunday we went to Kyoto for some tasty falafel and the open air flea market at Kita no Tenmangu Shrine! Whew! We forgot to take pictures in Kyoto, but we documented our excursions from Friday and Saturday. Enjoy some photos!
Love you all!
Laura, Jonathan, and baby!
