Two Month Checkup

Lillian had her two month checkup on Monday, 3/12/07. We're happy to report she passed with flying colors and took her first round of vaccinations like a champ. Onto the vitals...she now weighs 11 lbs 9 oz and measures 23 1/4". These are both very healthy numbers and we're quite pleased with her development.

Some miscellaneous notes, we're currently trying to get Lillian to sleep in her crib during the night...she's rolling onto her back during tummytime...Liz goes back to work in three weeks.

Sleep Apnea

It's official, Trent has been diagnosed with moderate-to-severe obstructive sleep apnea. It all started when Liz noticed that his snoring was worse than usual. Trent met with a reputable Ear, Nose, and Throat physician and this doctor strongly suggested that he get a professional sleep study. The first study analyzed his sleep patterns and the second one involved Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) testing and calibration.

Recently, a study published in the journal SLEEP finds that people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) are at an increased risk of having cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, sleep apnea produces general 'wear and tear' on the heart, brain, and lungs which leads to a shortened lifespan. Needless to say, Trent is thankful to have pinpointed a major issue, but nevertheless, apprehensive of the potential treatments and lifestyle changes.

What would be your treatment option: CPAP or surgery?

Dress Up Weekend

We have added to our web album a number of photos from this past weekend. Lillian had several elegant, 3 month outfits that screamed, "model me." She proceeded from the bikini competition to the formal outfit and finished with evening wear; a very impressive performance. Speaking of loud noises, Lillian is now taking naps in her crib during the day--a major breakthrough in our estimation. She simply gets cuter by the day.

P.S. Apologies for the lengthy delay in posting updated photos. Also, please note the pictures available on the web are not suitable for large, hard-copy prints. Let us know if you want a high resolution version of a particular photo(s).
