21 Week Bumpdate + Being Good and Taking Pictures

Hello people,

Merry less-than-a-week-before-I-see-my-family!

I have all sorts of things to share today. Let's go back just a little to Friday morning: I walked into the kitchen and said, "Jeff I don't feel well." Immediately after I ran to the bathroom and let's just say I threw up so much that my doctor gave me an IV (don't worry, Mom!). I went home and watched Muppets Christmas Carol and Mr. Bean's Holiday, which is not a Christmas movie like I was expecting.

If you are wondering Baby Falco is doing great. :) She does her grand battements every day, especially while I am in ward choir practice (or when waistbands and other objects encroach on her space). She's all like:

It's wonderful to feel her kick. I love it!

Anyway, the next day was the ward Christmas party. I was in charge with my friend Fontaine, and do you know what, I didn't take a single picture. You'll have to take my word for it when I say that it was beautiful and fun and seriously went without a hitch, as far as we can tell. I had so much fun and my sweet co-workers even made it. It was their first taste of a Mormon soiree, haha. :)

Today, I asked Jeff to take some higher-quality pictures to document my pregnancy. If I keep getting ready this may become a regular thing. :) Here is my favorite skirt, by the way. I think it's the last time I will zip myself in before my baby comes. It was certainly a wonder to behold, haha.

Yay! Baby!

I felt like a fashion blogger asking Jeff to take pictures of my accessories. What a champ. They were from Walmart. That's how we do, haha.

I will do my questionnaire now, too. I have neglected my chalkboard, But here's an update!

How far along? 21 and a half weeks

Best moment this week? Hearing baby's heartbeat with a Doppler stethoscope. By the way, Jeff just got his first stethoscope! Wow, a doctor!
Miss Anything? Not really.
Movement? Yes!
Food cravings? Nothing, although the other day I had dinner and thought it was all delicious. When I went back to get seconds of the same food it all unpalatable. So strange.
Anything making you queasy or sick? A stomach bug, actually. Darn you, daycare.
