How far along? 21 weeks

Updates on baby: Baby weighs about the 3/4 a pound and is as long as a carrot

Symptoms/Body Changes: The sickness is over! More or less... I only have had two bouts of sickness this past week. But emotionally I'm all over the place - I'm not usually a crier so I know it's the hormones. Blah!

Movement: feeling baby girl more and more... she moves mostly during the early morning, that I can tell... but still not a ton of movement.

Cravings/Aversions: Portillo's! It's a yummy restaurant in Chicago... for Valentine's day we actually delivered some frozen for us to prepare at home (Something Michael's family does fairly often for special occasions - it's that good!) But it should get here tonight and I CANNOT WAIT. YUM! And cheesy potatoes... I've had a baked potato several days for lunch this week and I'm not at all getting tired of them.

Getting ready for baby: I think we've picked a theme! Yellow and gray... I'm going to a craft store after nap time to see if I can find some good fabric for curtains and then we'll go from there! (I'm not big on the already put together sets - we wouldn't use any of that stuff, so handmade it is!) :)

What I miss: not feeling the need to cry all the time! It's crazy!

What I am looking forward to: We didn't do anything for Valentine's yesterday but we are going on a date Friday night... we're going to see the vow! Very excited :)

Weekly wisdom: Even if you're not going to leave the house... change out of your pajamas, shower, and make your hair cute. It does wonders!
