Hello from Seattle!
Hawaii was an absolute dream. We spent a lovely week in Maui driving around the Island in our little rented red convertible, sipping mocktails, and hanging out on the beach. Look out for my fun post soon! We stopped in Seattle on our way back East to visit my sister! My parents, brother, and his wife all joined us for a weekend of touristy things and delicious food.
This is my first time in Seattle, and it is such a beautiful city. The abundance of water, the gorgeous flowers blooming, and the mountain views – wow! I can see why my sister loves it so much. It was really nice to see my whole family now that I’m bumpin’ and showing a bunch! This is the first grandchild/niece or nephew on my side, and we are all really excited. Everyone is taking such good care of me. Physically pushing me up hills, making sure I’m not hungry or thirsty, and checking in to make sure I’m still okay to walk. Mom wants to be “Grandma” and my dad wants to be “Saba” which means grandfather in Hebrew. I love it.
We head back to Chicago tomorrow afternoon, and it’ll be good to sleep in our own bed and reunite with Jake and Elwood. Hopefully after 12 days they remember us! Now that my belly is growing, I’m going to order a pregnancy pillow asap, because it is getting hard to sleep comfortably. If you used one that you loved or have heard of a good one, leave me a link in the comments please!!
