13 weeks

Avery is 13 weeks today. She's as cute as ever, but has been having some issues recently...Nothing serious...

She just hasn't been sleeping well for about a month now (It could be A LOT worse, but we have to put her back to sleep several times each night) We figured maybe she was hungry. We tried increasing her formula, but she became gassy and started spitting up. She also started refusing bottles.
We finally broke down and called our pediatrician to ask for advice...

Surprisingly, he didn't come back with his typical response..."Sugar Water!" This warranted something better...ready for the big guns??? "Whiskey and tylenol!" (he thinks she is teething)

Needless to say, we're going to ignore his old school advice and just continue to take things day to day. Avery will figure it out...(she figured out how to sleep with her arms unswaddled!)

In the meantime, we're going to continue to shower this little girl with all of the love we can possibly offer...

I know I've said it before, but she seriously melts my heart! (These are, hands down, two of my favorite pictures!)

















Tomorrow is her 3 month birthday...I hope you're ready for the photoshoot!!!

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...
