New Discoveries

While Meg and I have been busy trying to organize and prepare our lives for the upcoming school year, Avery has been busy trying to explore the world.

She still has a long way to go, but the following are two videos of Avery's newest discovery...(word to the wise...turn the sound off!)

It's truly amazing how much she has grown. She's not even 4 months old and she's becoming mobile. It's scary. 

Even more scary is the fact that she has started teething. She's been an irritable, drooly mess...teething tablets seem to help, but the relief is only temporary. Tylenol helps cut the edge, but hasn't helped her sleep comfortably. She's only been able to nap 30 minutes (sometimes less) and she has been up for several hours during the middle of the night for the past two nights. 

We can feel the bump, so it's just a matter of the tooth breaking through...we're hoping it happens soon.

I'll keep you posted!

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 …

Our Announcement

Many people have known about the baby since the beginning. Today we made the pregnancy Facebook official...

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!
