One day

On Friday, We went to the hospital for prenatal care. This increased to twice a month after 29 weeks of pregnancy. Sachi's heartbeat was perfect. The doctor is gradually increasing the amount of information she gives us every visit. She gave us information about the hospital where I will give birth, about the labor induction, and she asked if we already have a Pediatrician or not. I am getting nervous, but, on the other hand, I still can't believe that I will give birth. I wonder if everyone who experiences pregnancy feels this way.

When the appointment was over, we went to the Consulate General of Japan in order to add my marriage to Anthony to my family register ( Then, we went to the Courthouse to apply for my name change (to add my former family name as my new middle name).

Shopping around in Soho

After the Courthouse, we shopped around in Soho for a while. We went into a cute French store called “French”, then went to Allbirds and bought matching shoes.

The Morgan Library & Museum
in Midtown

Later in the evening, we went to The Morgan Library & Museum in Midtown because I had really wanted to go for a while. The library was so beautiful and the exhibitions were amazing. The general admission is $22, but it is free to visit the library on Friday nights. I recommend that everyone go there.

The weekend

On February 14th (Valentine's Day), Anthony and I went to the Alice Tully Hall to listen to "The Beethoven String Quartets", as performed by the Danish String Quartet.

I appreciate that he planned it about three weeks ago. He gave me a list of four choices: Jazz, Opera, Ballet, or Beethoven. I wanted to experience all of those which he chose, but I decided to listen to the quartet because I thought Sachi would enjoy listening to classical music very much. As I had anticipated, she was very lively while the music was playing, approximately 2 hours.

The next day,
we went to Tiffany’s new flagship store
at 57th and 5th avenue.

I saw pictures on Twitter of a pop-up store at Tiffany’s as a Valentine’s Day event. I am not particularly interested in high fashion brands; however, I thought I might like the pop-up store. I also thought I should turn my eyes to fields that I am not particularly interested in.

The pop-up was located inside the Tiffany’s, and it was expressed as a New York City subway train. I actually liked these graphics very much.

The Stone Street Historic District

Big seesaws
as an art installation

After that, we went to the Seaport District by way of the Stone Street Historic District in the Two Bridges neighborhood to see and play with big seesaws which were located there as an art installation.

I heard these seesaws had been located on Broadway last month, but I couldn’t go there. I enjoyed it because the last time I had played on a seesaw was about 30 years ago.

We saw the night view that included the Brooklyn Bridge from the rooftop at Pier 17, which is next to Seaport Square. I didn’t know about that place before Saturday, but I want to recommend it to everyone because of how beautiful it was that night.

We had a wonderful time together this weekend.

I took pictures using SONY α7 which I used before I got my SONY RX100V about a year ago. It was more fun to take photos with the DSLR than it has been with my point-and-shoot. I came to like this area so much and I want to go there again.
