the eric update - day 231: reading in the bath ring!

we're really reaping the benefits of having family members with older children. we don't have to buy anything. whoohooo!

days after getting a box of goodies from my sister, we received even more fun stuff, including this safety 1st bath ring; it has little grippy suction cups on the bottom which makes it easier to keep odin sitting upright in the tub while getting taking a bath. the timing is perfect, because it's getting more difficult than it once was to hold him while washing him, since he's not quite big enough to sit up in the tub all by himself.

we thought it might be prudent to give the bath ring a test run on dry land and discovered that it could apparently also double as odin's favorite new reading chair.

he really does enjoy his orange crinkley book from misscaro ( and here ). i wonder if they make them here in the states. if they do, i've never seen one.

I used to think the answer to life was coldfusion hosting but then i went to myrtle beach and discovered that spring break beat cold fusion hosting all to heck!

Just so you know, that bath seat was recalled because it can come unstuck from the bottom of the tub and tip over. I have a friend who still uses it with her son. She just makes sure to watch him while he's in the bath (of course!) and it's been no problem. This is just a reminder that you should always check hand me downs for recalls.

that's a great idea that makes a lot of sense. off course, we never would have left him unattended in the tub but we'll be extra watchful when we use it given the recall.

"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.
