Time: October 2nd-9th
Developmental Milestones: Our baby girl is starting to put on weight this week. Her bone marrow is producing blood cells and her taste buds are processing the flavors of different foods.
Cravings: Nothing new this week… James and I splurged and enjoyed dessert on most nights this week!
Highlights: The majority of our week was spent in Maui, Hawaii. We couldn’t have asked for better weather or a more beautiful setting. One of the most exciting parts of the trip: feeling the baby move for the first time while on the airplane about an hour from our destination. I’m pretty sure I’ve felt these little flutters before but they were always so faint. Her little kicks were unmistakeable this time! Movements are still very sporadic.
In addition to exploring amazing waterfalls and relaxing at the beach, James and I had 2 outstanding culinary treats. We sampled the BEST banana bread at Julia’s and ordered the BEST dessert at Mama’s Fish House. I can’t even begin to describe how delicious Mama’s Hana Banana Macadamia Nut Crisp was- we devoured it! More details to come about our tropical “Babymoon.”
