Quick Update/ Picture of the Day

It's hard to believe that it has been 15 days since I last blogged...It's even harder to believe that Avery will be one month old this Sunday!

Over the past 15 days, Avery has: lost her umbilical cord, put on weight, moved into (some) 0-3 month clothing (she's very long!), changed formulas (we're now using Enfamil's Gentlease), slept in her crib (just naps so far), taken road trips, gone shopping, had her first real bath (woo hoo pink tub!), increased her time on her tummy (we're up to at least 10 minutes without fussing now!), AND had her first date! (we're in the process of arranging her marriage...but I'll save that for another day!)

All jokes aside, there never seems to be enough time left in the day to blog, so...I've decided I'm just going to start posting pictures.

Today's picture of the day was taken at my parents' house. Avery had just finished her bottle and was sitting on her Gran's lap. All of the sudden, she made the cutest pose I've ever seen...
















Look at those muscles!!! LOVE her!

  3. What a cutie she is :)

    I only found your blogs last night and read it back all the way to the beginning, I love the way you write.

    My girlfriend and I have been together for 3.5 years now so hopefully one day in the not too distant future we'll add a little one to the mix :) Can't wait!

  5. London, UK :)

    I loved reading all of your posts, but obviously read it all in a backwards order because of the blogspot layout. Quite fun seeing the bump 'shrink'.

    If it was up to me we would start TTC right now but my other half is slightly more responsible and wants to save up some more money. Guess she's right...

    1. That's so cool that you're from London!!! I've been there once on spring break. :-)

      I love that you watched the bump shrink. That's hysterical. I agree that the layout blows...there have been times that I have looked back to remember something and had to search through. But...what can you do?!

      As far as ttc goes, it does require A LOT of money. You need to be financially secure and mentally prepared to spend it. But as far as babies go, you'll never be perfectly ready. They're expensive, but you do what you have to do!

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...
