ex machina

the eric update - day 261: a study of solids. bananas.

since we didn't want to be accused of "... giving someone a Bud Light and then concluding from [ their dislike of it ] that that they don't like beer..." we went ahead and rounded up a motley crew of earth's best baby food. the merits of "hand mashing notwithstanding, we decided to go with good old fashioned jars of babyfood because, well, we're lazy :-)

and since banannas seemed to be a popular suggestion, we thought we'd try that first. see - your feedback at action!

goodbye real spoon and hello fingerspoon! despite initially seeming to like using a real spoon, today the results were the same as yesterday until we switched to the fingerspoon.

and then, like magic, odin was at least willing to give it a try. not too much, mind you, maybe a quarter of teaspoon of food - but hey - it's a start. we tried both straight bananas and bananas mixed with a bit of rice cereal and the results were the same - mild, if not overwhelming interest. so, maybe next time we'll try sweet potatoes.

"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."

[ about ]

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.
