10 Updates about Avery's Life (with pictures)

1. While continuing to perfect the art of rolling over, Avery has learned to hold her head up really high!

2. Avery took a ride in her carrier for the first time. She loved it!

3. Avery, Meg, and I took a family picture while sporting Long Beach Island Tshirts!

4. Avery and Jack had a weekend long play date...they color coordinated, posed for pictures, played together, slept next to each other, and had an awesome time overall!

5. Avery visited "Old Barney" (the lighthouse in Barnegat Light, NJ). She walked to the water and saw a sailboat. She then fell asleep in the carrier!

6. Jack and Avery received special onesies from Aunt Trish. Avery's said, "I'm with HIM," and had pearls! Jack's said, "I'm with HER," and had a bow tie!" The photoshoot was too cute for words!

7. Avery tried out Jack's jumper. She was a little too short to touch the ground, so we had to put an old laptop underneath her (it was the only thing we could find). She reached for the toys and even bounced a little (I will post a video tomorrow!)

8. Avery took a ride in her big girl stroller! She loved it! (and fell asleep!)

9. Avery will be 3 months this Friday (can't wait for that photoshoot!)

10. We received a phone call from our lawyer stating that our adoption court date will be October 12th at 10 am. (I wish it was sooner, but it will make a pretty awesome anniversary present...our 5 year wedding anniversary is October 13th!)


  1. Oh my goodness, those pictures of the kiddos in matching outfits are the cutest! With Avery rolling over and holding her head so well at 2-3 months – you may have a future Olympian on your hands!

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...
