the eric update - day 211: frown face!

just to prove that not everyday is filled with smiles, i present to you a classic frown face!

and what a sad face it is.

we've been seeing a few more frown faces than normal lately, along with a little more drool. could it be that we're seeing more early signs of teething?

perhaps. if he lets us get a good look at his gums ( not an easy task to be sure ), we're fairly sure that we can see two small, white spots where you might expect baby teeth to come in.

i wouldn't expect teeth to appear any time soon, but my money is that the increasingly frequently appearing frown face is related to teething and most certainly has nothing to do with us being bad parents that he's going to hate until well after his teen angst years :-)

sometimes The Frowny Face appears for no reason other than to say "Ha! I knew I could get your attention with this look"

Somehow, sadly, I've always thought the face on my kids was rather funny. I documented plenty of them just to use for extortion purposes later in life.

I'm not saying it's necessarily so, but it's certainly not unheard of for babies to start teething at about or before 3 months old. I'm the living example of this, because according to my mom, I started teething at about that age - apparently, it focused all my energies towards the teeth, so I couldn't control my head properly until at about 6 months of age.

At my christening (at 3 months old) my dad had to surreptitiously hold the nape of my neck so it would appear that I was sitting upright in his lap in the photos taken of the event (it was, incidentally, also my parents' wedding day).

Just saying. ;-)

oK, now he looks like e3. when he smiles looks like mom. love ya. mfromohio. btw, i think i saw a commercial for the shot. they called it the purple pill and told us to ask our doctor. well, actually i am not sure what it is for, but it was on tv. be careful though after 4 hours or something. we do have a great medical care system. i remember when $2,500 would buy you a love machine complete with chili sauce.

i think we've conclusively concluded that odin does, in fact, have multiple teeth "coming in", but i haven't figured out a way to take a picture of the inside of his mouth :-)

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
