First Night in Crib/Trip to see Meg's parents (LOTS of pictures!)

So...last night was Avery's first night in her crib. It wasn't a bad night, but it wasn't the 2-4.5 hour stretches we've grown accustomed to. Instead, Avery ate at 8pm...slept from 8:50-12:00, ate again at 12...slept from 12:35-3:15...ate at 3:20...was awake until 4:20...slept from 4:20-7:00. Oh, and she had two poop explosions!

Meg and I felt like zombies when we woke up! Avery, on the other hand, woke up happy as can be. I guess she was proud that she made it through her first night in her crib! 










































































Her brothers were proud of her too...































This afternoon we took Avery to visit her Mommom and Poppop (Meg's parents), her Uncle Eddie (Meg's brother) and her cousin Ryleigh (Eddie's daughter)...Avery took a cat nap on the way there (which was great because I was totally carsick from sitting in the back!) 








































All of the sudden, she started smiling away...






















By the time we arrived, Avery was ready to "play" with her cousin...she looked around the room, smiled, stuck out her tongue, spit up, and practiced kicking her legs and flailing her arms! 



What a day!

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...
