Today Lillian felt her first earthquake! Actually to be more accurate, Kristen and Eric felt an earthquake, grabbed Lillian out of her crib where she was peacefully sleeping through the shaking and ran outside. The 5.6 quake centered east of San Jose was big enough to rattle the house but it did not cause any damage. This is also the first quake Eric has felt since moving to California, but that's not saying much. This is the 4th one Kristen has felt, clearly she is much more sensitive to these things than Eric.

Lillian has been enjoying little bits of solid food during meals recently. This past weekend she ate some barbecued banana at a pot luck, a few pieces of rice as well as a tiny sliver of carrot which came out the other end completely undigested.
Today she has her first experience with meat. She seemed to enjoy a few tiny pieces of the rosemary and olive oil roasted pork tenderloin we were eating for dinner.
While Ryan, Joanna and Klaus were in town we enjoyed going out to eat ethnic food and enjoying nature. Those seem to be the favorite activities of most of our visitors these days. Of course there was also lots of baby time. Lillian eagerly watched Klaus cruise around the house. Clearly she can't wait until she is cruising around herself. For the moment all she can do is spin in circles on her belly and push her self backwards while on her back.
This past weekend we had a meeting of the babies as our friends Ryan and Joanna's 9 month old baby Klaus met baby Lillian for the first time. Lillian enjoyed watching as Klaus crawled and cruised around the house, exposing what a poor baby-proofing job Kristen and Eric had done. He also got to show Nash what he is in for over the next few months. Nash loved it when Klaus grabbed his bone. At 17 pounds Klaus isn't big enough to play tug with 90 pound Nash. Good times!
