the eric update - day 308: happy mother's day! we have the first sighting of actual tooth enamel!

as you might be aware, today is mother's day! and it's a extra special mother's day for us since it's kris' first official mother's day as a mother since odin was born.

and what shall history record was the first gift given to kris as a mother for mother's day? i guess it's appropriate that she humbly requested a locket, so she could always have a picture of odin near to her heart ( well, she didn't really say the "near to my heart" part - i made that up for effect ).

i think we can find a picture or two to put in the locket :-)

mere days after wondering when odin's bottom incisors would break completely through his gums, i can verify that we have had the first sighting of actual tooth enamel!

they're not sticking out very far and it's impossible to photograph them, but they're there! when he decided that he wanted to sooth his gums by gnawing on a granny smith, you could hear his teeth squeaking against the apple skin, which of course, i thought was the coolest sound i'd ever heard.

Happy First Mother's Day Kris!

I grinned when I saw the photo with the apple because that was one of my little girl's faves when her bottom teeth emerged! I thought it was really cute until she actually bit off some and it became a choking hazard - oh well!

"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.
