Day 12, Day 13, and Valentine's Day

Mom just informed me that I haven't posted any updates about my Valentine's Day celebration, SO...

I'm writing to tell you that Meg and I had a fantastic weekend. We bought Avery a few outfits at the Carters outlet. I finally found the bows I had been looking for (thank you Children's Place!) We ate lunch at this amazing organic pizza restaurant (check out www.jasonsorganicpizza.com) Best of all, we relaxed! (Nothing beats a king size bed!)





















I zoomed in on our towel pet. We couldn't decide what it was supposed to be (apparently the Hilton isn't as good as the people who fold towels on cruise ships) Anyhow, I said bunny. Meg said elephant. What do you think?





















Day 12 was a bag of pretzel goldfish and a note that said, "Before our mini vacation is "o-fish-ally" over,  we still have one thing left to do...order room service!" (Day 12 was breakfast in bed.) I ordered a western omelette. Meg ordered scrambled eggs, bacon, and hashbrowns. Sadly, Meg didn't like hers. She opted for a bowl of Frosted Flakes instead...go figure!

















Yesterday was Day 13. I  sent a dozen chocolate covered strawberries to Meg's work. Attached, was a note that said,"I love you berry much. Happy Day 13!" (sorry no pictures...I'm deathly allergic to strawberries!)

FINALLY...Day 14...I sent a dozen sweetheart roses (pink, red, and white), a teddy bear, and a red vase to Meg's work. I also sent a basket of Mrs. Field's snacks (mini muffins, brownies, and cookies) to the girls at her work. They've been faithfully following the 14 Days of Valentine's Day, so I thought it was only fair to incorporate them on the last day! (Happy Valentine's Day ACW!)

For dinner I made garlic bread and cooked Meg heart shaped raviolis.































What a great Valentine's Day celebration!

  3. no problem! I like having things to read (and I've made some really good IRL friends off the internets, including my lovely wife!). If I ever write anything feel free to drop in. One day I swear I'll be a better blogger...

10 weeks

Today we had our last appointment at RMA. It was bittersweet. We were able to spend some much needed time with Doctor Castlebaum. I know I have said it before, but he's seriously fantastic! 
The baby was moving all over the place. It was all amazing! 









We left something for them to remember us...


We will miss them dearly!



Our terrifying 20 week anatomy scan

We had our 20 week anatomy scan on Tuesday. Meg was actually 21 weeks. We told the ultrasound technician that we didn’t want to know the sex. The baby wasn’t cooperating, but we watched as she took pictures of the brain, spine, heart, etc. Everything looked good...or so we thought.
After the ultrasound we went into a different room for our appointment. The nurse practitioner checked the baby’s heartbeat (165) and asked Meg how she was feeling. 
Megan told her that she’s still feeling nauseous and is still taking diclegis at night.
All of the sudden the nurse practitioner nonchalantly handed me a paper and said “the ultrasound technician found a nodule on the baby’s neck. The doctor wants you to call this number and schedule an appointment with a perinatal specialist.”
On the back of the paper it had information about maternal screening and Down syndrome. I asked the nurse practitioner if they thought the baby had Down syndrome and she said it was just a sheet of paper with hospital phone …

Everything is better when you're at the beach

Four years ago Megan and I brought Avery to Ocean City, New Jersey for a mini family vacation. There, we tested positive (on Day 10) with Harper. We were surrounded by friends and family and minus the fact that Avery got her first bad ear infection and the trip ended with us in a NJ emergency room, it was perfect.
Today is Day 10 and again we are in Ocean City with family and friends. We went to bed REALLY late. I had a hard time falling asleep and when I did I had dreams about testing. Harper just woke me up to go to the bathroom (she rarely does that). It's 3:20AM Megan just took a pregnancy test and the results are in...
