First Date

For the past 8 weeks Meg and I have spent every waking moment with Avery.  This afternoon we dropped Avery off at my mom's house and headed out for a date. 

Don't get too was far from a wine and dine experience..

Our first date consisted of organic pizza and a trip to our local used bookstore (Meg LOVES books). We called in our order before setting foot in the store, so we figured we had about 15 minutes to spend browsing the books.

Before we knew it, we both had stacks of books in our hands and had spent more than 20 minutes searching. All of the sudden, I realized I left my wallet at home. 

Long story short, our 15 minute date turned into an hour because we had to run home to grab my wallet, stop to pick up the books at the bookstore (and the new Jason Mraz CD) and then drive back to pick up the munchkin.

When we arrived at my mom's house, Avery was sound asleep in her pack n play. We put her in the carseat, drove to pick up the pizza and then returned home. 

It was a monumental day. Meg and I had a great time. It felt good to reconnect! 

The best part was when Meg informed me that I'm not off the hook for planning romantic events in the future. 

On a different note, I've been uploading pictures of Avery on facebook like it's my job, but haven't been as faithful with blogging. So, here are a few of our favorite pictures.

Avery is doing great. She's smiling and babbling regularly now (Meg's even heard a few "giggles") She goes for her 2 month check up on July 6th.

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...
