Avery's First Beach Trip

Yesterday Meg and I took Avery to Long Beach Island. While it was way too hot to set foot on the sand or even take a walk, we had a great time driving down and hanging out in my grandparents' air conditioned house!

Here are some pictures from yesterday's excursion...

There wasn't a cloud in the sky!!!





















Avery was great...She LOVED the ceiling fans and slept peacefully through both of her naps.





















Avery loved being the center of attention (as usual)!








































She enjoyed spending time with her great grandparents (I'm pretty sure they loved it too!!)
































But nothing compared to spending quality time with her moms...


I think it's safe to say that this happy little girl will grow up loving LBI as much as Meg and I do...

















BONUS:

I managed to catch Avery's first attempt at a roll (Don't get too excited. She's far from rolling over, but her smile is too cute for words!)


Meg Update:

Meg had her 6 week OB check up on Tuesday. All of our favorite nurses came out to sneak a peak of Avery while we were sitting in the waiting room. It's so amazing how many people love this little girl (including many of you)...As far as the visit went, the doctor said everything looked great and that Meg's episiotomy healed perfectly.

Unfortunately, the doctor also told us that she will be leaving the practice in August (She's moving to DC to be with her husband. Apparently they've been living apart for the past year!!!)

The only other news I have to report is that Meg got her period on Wednesday. She's slightly uncomfortable from that, but otherwise is doing well.

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...
