21 Weeks!

6:23 PM

So, today's big event is really that my guy is a quarter of a century old today! But we still have some celebrating to do and pictures to take, so that update will come later. Right now we're loving some time with my family in Kansas! 

Originally, Trevor and Garrett and Heidi weren't coming until Wednesday, but they were able to make it in last night. The longer I'm married to Trevor the more I love having him around... I was so glad they came earlier than they planned! Nothing is as fun without him here.

For now, here's a little update on my little buddy:
He's getting strong! I can actually see my belly moving when he kicks and I love it. Every kick is like a little secret between me and him. If you're talking to me and I suddenly start smiling ear to ear, that's why.

Nausea is declining at about the same rate as heartburn is increasing. I feel WORLDS better than I did even just a month ago, but I may be one of those girls who is sick through her whole pregnancy. Nasty and not that fun, but totally worth it my friends!
My skin is clear. This is basically the only pregnancy symptom I got the good version of. So you have to just let me have this one :).

I'm still running (okay, jogging)! I'm talking a 10 minute mile pace and walking breaks whenever my heart desires. But I still make it 5 miles a day, and I feel great about that. We'll see how long that lasts.

Still craving cottage cheese and oranges like no tomorrow. There are worse things, right? 

He likes to practice his flips right before bed. And sometimes he's still doing them when I wake up. Love it.

We've decided to decorate boat/fish/nautical themed. Red and blue and stripes and anchors and I'm in love with it! My mom and sister and I made the. Cutest. Quilt the other day. We walked around the fabric store and maybe I teared up because I got so excited for my little guy to sleep and puke and poop in his adorable fish blanket but we don't need to talk about how I can't control my emotions. Pictures to come.

We're LOVING having some time off of school (Trevor) and some time off of freezing Utah and crazy traffic (Danielle). We'll be staying busy with Thanksgiving, birthday dates, girls' night with the drill team girls, Garrett's wedding reception, and partying all week long. Prepare for a few massive photo updates!
