This week, Mini Mitch is the size of a sweet potato. I still don’t feel like I’m showing a ton – I’m definitely still feeling like I’m in the, “Hmm, I think she had a burrito for lunch” phase. Sometimes I show more than others, it just depends when it is in the day, whether I’ve eaten, etc.
We’re enjoying our trip to Hawaii. We got to Oahu Thursday and headed to the Northshore to explore. On Friday we visited Pearl Harbor, which was so interesting to see in person. Just the magnitude of what happened there is so humbling.
Friday afternoon we headed to Kauai, which is so pretty. The island is so lush and green. Yesterday we hiked a portion of the Kalalau trail – it was super slick with mud from all the rain they’ve gotten and my shoes are an interesting color of orange now, but it was really pretty and a lot of fun. Today is pretty rainy and grey due to a tropical storm that is coming through, so we’re going to drive around the island to Waimea Canyon. They call it the Grand Canyon of the west. Should be pretty cool to see.

Stretch marks? None yet.
Sleep? We’re waking up (and subsequently going to bed) super early because of the time change, but no complaints here – that has been just fine!
