In the third trimester we puzzle over baby stuff, fend off invasive strangers, get blown away by friends, suffer through contractions, and meet our baby!
In the second trimester we lounge on Maui, battle heat, grapple with body image, subvert gender norms, pick an unusual nickname, and hold a very cute baby.
In the first trimester, we receive some happy news, following by a whole lot of vomiting. Pregnancy is a heck of a ride!
We spent our last few weeks in Hong Kong traumatizing local students, eating in unusual places, and preparing for the voyage home.
We visit Cebu, where we gawk at dragons, leap off buildings, misunderstand mass, and spot some unusually large firepower.
We explore the city of Manila, seeing the old walled city of Intramuros, the shrine of José Rizal, the fishes of Ocean Park, and a whole lot of bad puns.
We visit Tokyo Disneyland, fend off carnivorous fish, celebrate Kat’s birthday, and befriend a sizeable portion of the US Navy on our last few days in Japan.
