Cute pictures

We went to a fun and cute reception for one of my cousin's getting sealed in the temple (YAY for Zack and Becka!).  Belle fell in love with the photographer and was following her around and so the photographer snapped a couple of cute pictures of my sweet girl.  

I made some yummy chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese filling and chocolate frosting to add to the dessert table.  I loved the cute pearls all over the top and it went well with the vintage theme of the reception.

This last one is my favorite.  I think I need to frame it and hang it up!

Things are going great with the baby.  We had our big ultrasound a couple weeks ago and everything looked good.  A four chamber heart,  good measurements on everything, and a cute profile.  I decided to get the quad screen test this time and that came back negative.  I have another ultrasound scheduled the beginning of November.  My doctor and I have have talked about all the monitoring we will do as I get farther along and how we may consult with a perinatalogist again (I say one monthly with Belle's pregnancy).  We will have a lot of non-stress tests (basically monitoring the baby's heart rate over a period of time) and a lot of AFI's (amniotic fluid index-measure the amount of fluid through an ultrasound). With Belle we induced me about a week early but it didn't go as planned (nothing happened-my body just wouldn't go into labor). So we waited a couple of days and tried again. I would like to be induced again so that we can monitor the baby the whole time I am labor and know that everything is ok but how early we will do that I am not sure, it will all depend on how ready my body seems. I have been a little less sick this pregnancy than with either Hope or Belle (with Hope I threw up 4-5 times everyday for 9 months, with Belle I threw up at least 1-2 times a day for 9 months). But with the this pregnancy there have been several days in a row where I haven't thrown up so that is nice (still a lot of nausea but the medication I have been taking this time has worked better for that and I feel better this month than last month and last month I felt better than the month before that-so progress).
