Apologies for not posting in a while. Things are fine great with us and the Little One; we have just been away on our Babymoon!
Since I have been feeling pretty good lately — with my energy back, along with my ability to brush my teeth without gagging — Vik and I decided this would be the perfect time to head out of the country for one last baby-free vacation.
Our trip started with three days in Belgium (Brussels and Bruges), with Vik sampling his way through a few (dozen) Belgian beers, me sampling my way through a few (dozen) Belgian chocolates, and both of us strolling along the cobblestone streets and taking in all of the gorgeous old buildings. After Belgium, we headed to Paris for three magical days. We saw all the main monuments (Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, to name a few), took in a show at the Moulin Rouge (Vik’s favorite part!), and spent a day at Versailles.
The trip was so much fun, and we were both pleasantly surprised at just how much energy I had. In fact, I had more sightseeing stamina than Vik! We were also pleasantly surprised at how much this pregnancy has curbed my addiction to shopping. Pre-pregnancy, 90% of my time in Paris would have been spent raiding the shops on the Champs Elysees. Admittedly, however, the steep decline in time spent perusing the boutiques on this vacation had less to do with a sudden budget consciousness and more to do with the fact that Chanel, Dior, and Lagerfeld do not have particularly robust maternity lines!
Anyway, I promise to post more about Master Duck and his antics in the coming days, but for now, here a couple snapshots from our Babymoon:
