the eric update - day 293: what to do when it snows in spring?

sigh. after a few weeks of enjoying unseasonably warm weather, we're faced with the prospect the return of unseasonably chilly weather, complete with winter storm warnings and the threat of snow accumulation. ack! hope still springs eternal.

so, while we were stuck indoors with The Recoverer, it seemed as good a time as any to test out his previously neglected capri stroller. while the jogging stroller serves it's appointed purpose, it's a bit of tank and not particularly easy to cart around for quick trips here and there, hence the need for a lighter weight stroller. but in our previous testing, odin has been too small to be safely restrained in the five point harness. but no more! instead of flopping around and slipping between the straps, not-so-little odin enjoyed popping wheelies with pops back-and-forth around the house.

i guess these are the things you do when it snows in spring.

and yes, it's official. odin's favoritest solid food seems to be bananas delivered via his mesh feeder. in fact, he seems to like it so much that he prefers it over all other solids.

i never realized just how far and wide one can smear bananas when one is excited about popping wheelies with pops.

How's that mesh feeder cleaning up for you? I think it looks like a greatly improved product than the one we had. At least the mesh is now colored instead of white, so you can't see stains. :-D

"How's that mesh feeder cleaning up for you?"

overall, i think odin gives it two thumbs up! it's not the easiest thing to clean, but as long as we don't let stuff dry and get caked in the mesh, it's not too bad - definately not a quick clean up though.

but it seems to be the only way he'll eat a banana so we'll suffer on :-)

"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.
