Four Month Checkup

Lillian went to her four month checkup this Monday. She weighs 14 1/4 lbs, measures 24 1/2", and has a 16" head (all 50 percentiles). She may be average in stature, but advanced in intelligence. The nurse practitioner said Lillian demonstrated the development of a 6 month old. As you can imagine, we're very proud and happy parents.

We've added many pictures to the photo album. You can see some photos of Lillian from this past weekend (swinging at the playground, visiting Burke Lake, and hanging out). You can also travel over to my pictures from Louisiana (technical tour and festivities).

We hope you have an enjoyable Memorial Day.

Goin' Swinging

Cute, but make sure to take your dramamine.

Wedding Anniversary

We celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary on Thursday, 5/17. The festivities were forced to wait until I returned from New Orleans. Some day I'll have the wedding available to view online.

New Orleans

I'm in New Orleans this week attending the CS '07 conference. I presented my research on Tuesday afternoon. I received several compliments afterwards. More importantly, my paper generated feedback from many prominent coastal scientists and engineers. On Thursday I'll be on a technical tour of the Louisiana coastal zone--Fourchon and the Timbalier Islands.

A few random observations, the cuisine is fantastic, the people are wonderful (but watch your back), the city is still very much recovering from Katrina, the French Quarter is wild, and I could eat bread pudding all day. This has been a long trip away from Lillian and Liz...looking forward to returning home.

Jeff and Lynn Visit

Trent's parents (Jeff and Lynn) visited Lillian this weekend. They arrived on Saturday for a short, but eventful weekend. Saturday included grilling out and bath time, while Sunday consisted of brunch and yard work. I know what you're thinking...wild and crazy!! Seriously though, they enjoyed spending time with Lillian and were amazed about how much she has developed over the past weeks and months. Needless to say, she is not lacking in personality.

It's been awhile since we posted new photos, so check 'em out.

Lillian in the Tub (Part Deux)

We removed the bath sponge from Lillian's tub shortly after I published the previous video (Bath Time). Since that post, she has really been 'splishin and splashin'! Alas, she's not as animated when the camera comes out, but you get the idea.

P.S. Watch out for my first Google Map Mashup this weekend. One hint...get ready for an interactive tour of Parramore Island, Virginia.
