So we had a great morning at the Pumpkin Patch and we ended the day off well too. I had made baby cupcakes for a shower I attended last night and to say that David enjoyed them would be an understatement. He had just prayed for his pizza about 5 minutes before dessert but he was so thankful he prayed again... twice.

The Pool was another great pass time. If we weren't at the beach we were either napping or at the pool. Our sliding glass door faced the pool so it was nice and close. We did have to keep a close eye on David who learned how to unlock and open sliding glass doors during our vacation. Thankfully he learned this after the time I went to the Beach while he and Jonathan were napping. David got out of bed and saw that I wasn't in the living room so he went back to get Jon and said "no mommy." I'm just glad he didn't come looking for me. But now we know to watch him more closely. It was neat to watch David's progress at the pool from the day we arrived to the day we left he became much more comfortable. He would even put his face in the water for Uncle Jared. I might have to do swimming lessons with him again in January as he hasn't gone since he was ten months old.

Here are just a few of the pictures we took while visiting the Maui Ocean Center on Friday, October 17th. This was are only major excursion on our vacation and it was definitely worth the time and money. If you go to Maui with your family take your kids! Even if you go without your kids I recommend it. It is a great way to see Hawaiian fish up close. Beautiful! David absolutely loves fish so he ran around the whole day saying "SHISH" excitedly... so cute! He got a little bit over excited at the "touch and feel tide pool" and picked up the star fish he was petting and was a little too restless to sit for the shark feeding but other then that he did really well.

Now I mentioned in our "Maui Ocean Center" entry that was the only major excursion we did during our Maui vacation... so what did we do with the rest of our time? Three things... Beach, Pool and Snorkel! One of the firs things we did when we woke up the first morning was pick up our snorkel gear from "Snorkel Bob's"... Jonathan rented a prescription mask this time so that he could see everything perfectly and since I already have a mask and snorkel I just picked up flippers (which really help... we didn't use them last time). We snorkeled in 3 different Bay's, 5 days out of our trip. We had the equipment rented for 7 days but 2 of the days were way too wavy to snorkel. The main Bay we snorkeled at was Napili Bay... the beach right near where we stayed. We also snorkeled twice at Kapalua Bay and once at Turtle Bay. All 3 bay's had turtle's and we swam with them at each bay. David even got to see a turtle up close because there was one that stayed in a little tide pool area where he could stand with Grandpa Rob and watch. At Kapalua bay we saw a sting ray 3 different times but I think it was the same one and Jonathan saw two octopus. Turtle bay had the prettiest reefs but was the most dangerous to get in and out of. The water in Turtle Bay is deep so the coral stays beautiful. I liked different things about all three Bays so I can't say which is my favorite but our first day at Napili beach a huge turtle swam right beside me and that was really neat.
Most of the pictures were taken at Kapalua Bay but I think the one of Jonathan was taken at Napili.
Today we are celebrating our third wedding anniversary. I wish that every year we could celebrate with another ceremony and lots of food and dancing. This year we get to celebrate in a very fun way but I will write more about that in a few days. Happy Anniversary Jonathan. "I" still "do" and I always will.

We had a doctors appointment today, and everything continues to look good. Nothing abnormal showed up from the special blood tests we had. We have a second set of blood test on the 9th... testing the same things just at a different stage and then next up is our ultrasound on November 3rd. When I see my doctor next I will be in my 20th week... more then half way through our pregnancy!
Last night we had roast beef for dinner and I was able to eat a good size meal without feeling sick. Night time is the worse for my nausea so this was a bit of a milestone. I am hoping it is the first of many nights that I am feeling much better. Usually nausea does ease up at this stage of pregnancy so it is a good sign that I am getting over it.
I was happy to find out that I have only gained 1 lb since my last appointment in September. I have to monitor my weight a bit closer this time because I hadn't lost all my pregnancy weight from Noah when I got pregnant with SweetPea. That is one thing that the nausea has been good for. Not to worry... I put myself and baby first when it comes to nutrition. I just try to eat well and get some exercise. I am walking at least twice a week now and will be starting prenatal water aerobics at the end of the month.
