the eric update - day 228: a barney rubble sense of style?

even though it appears that odin might be looking more and more like his mamma, i know with certainty that he's his father's son in at least one respect.

when covered, his feet have a propensity to, er, sweat. so, i guess it's no suprise that we've discovered that he's much happier without "feet" in his pajammas, since it keeps him from getting sweaty toes.

the jagged edges on his now feetless pajammas make it appear as if he's been taking style lessons from barney rubble.

also, he hates to be covered with a blanket at night. you haven't seen squirming until you've watched odin attempt the get out from under a blanket while half asleep.

our son is 20 months old and has always hated blankets as well. as a result, he still sleeps in halo sleepsacks. i don't know what we'll do once he outgrows them! also, he, too, doesn't like things on his feet, pulling his socks off every chance he gets. it's a good thing it doesn't get that cold here in southern california.

i've never posted before, but have been following little odin's story since he was in the hospital. very happy things turned out well. you definitely have a little cutie!

Jacob was like this. My husband likes to tease that he got my smelly feet. Yes, I have smelly feet and yes, my son seems to have inherited this trait. At least he got something from me. The kid is a carbon copy of his Daddy. Being as I did the bulk of the work in terms of incubating and feeding, I think he should look just like ME. *sigh*

They (whoever 'they are') say that up until a child is a certian age (12 mos or older maybe?) their feet are actually just as sensitive if not more so than their hands. Interesting, no?

Those are incredibly cute wittel tosies.

there's no shame in smelly feet! i've found over the years that proper ventilation and thinner socks have helped me to live a mostly smell free existance.

"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.
