the eric update - day 364: preparing for odin's big birthday!

well, we can't hardly believe that almost a whole year has gone by since odin's unexpected arrival and even though we're not going to do anything too extravagent, there's still a lot of preparations that are being prepared.

of course, food for the adults is almost as important as anything else and even though you might think i've had more than my fair share of clams recently, i asked odin and he said it was quite fine with him if i went ahead and bought 15 pounds ( 6.8 kilos ) to go along with all that other seafood that will probably show up on the dinner table ( and neener! neener! i only paid $30 for all those clams that were dug this very morning! but i couldn't have done it without a little help from gigi and the fine folks at the c.e. fish company. ). odin seems quite satisfied after he inspects the clams and quickly turns his attention to the wondrous and amazing lid of the cooler.

the big question though, is what sort of cake odin might enjoy, but i think only kris knows that answer and she's not telling! i suspect it might not even be cake at all, since odin doesn't like to eat anything thicker than mushy baby food. and we're a little hesitant about giving him a bunch of food that he's never eaten before ( wheat, dairy, sugar ) in addition to being wary of The Incredible Unedible Egg. i'm sure she'll probably concoct something fun and tasty.

i should also mention that i set up a flickr birthday group and people have already uploaded many fun in inventive photos in honor of his birthday and i think it's you might see a few more before the end of the day tommorrow, so go and check it out.

"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.
