This is a big week in baby development because it marks the beginning of the third trimester. Yup, we’re coming down to the home stretch. If all goes well, there are only 13 more weeks left until Haruka-Victoria is born. Mom’s belly is getting noticeably bigger these days, and she has been less energetic.
The baby has been moving but the movements have been less jerky as before. But when she does move, the motions are pretty big. On occassions, I can even feel her move. It’s pretty amazing.
It’s been 9 weeks since we started using Baby Plus. She is on her 9th lesson, and the rhythms are pretty quick and complex. Again, we won’t be able tell if all of this had any affect until she is born. But if all of this works at all, this weeks and the weeks that follow will be imprtant because cognitive development is happening pretty quickly, especially with audio and visual comprehension.
Off Topic: More pics of the house
Yesterday, we spent a lot of time cleaning the house. The bedroom is a lot more presentable now. The living room, guest room, and Japanese room still needs work and probably won’t be completely tidied up for several more weeks as we sort all of the moving boxes.
The same view as my previous entry.
The north side of the bedroom. Originally this side had a stack of boxes, so I couldn’t take pictures of it, but now its nice and tidy.
Here is the entrance to the bedroom.
This is our bed. King sized beds are pretty rare in Japan so king sized comforter sets are really expensive. The can run from $1000 to $2000 for a set. This one I bought on the internet. Not too pleased about the color but it will do for now.
