a special day together —

deep and difficult conversations about our future

buying plants for our temporary space

visited a library with peacocks just hanging out no big deal

walking around the ranch park

delicious sushi in the shade (raw for him, cooked for me)

testing out our baby car seat and stroller in the store (we already bought it but waiting for it to arrive in the mail)

anatomy scan appointment

seeing our baby girl’s face!!!! and her feet and hands and brain… and confirmed her hamburger parts lolll. She’s so cute already to me!

pre-registering at the hospital

pretty sunset colors on the drive home

chowing on leftover homemade tinola soup from my sister

Netflix and foot massages
