the eric update - day 399: odin's epicurean adventures! goldfish and graham crackers! but no yucky organic cardboard foodstuffs!

while i'm not planning on detailing the minutia of odin's eating habits, it's still hard to imagine that it's only been a week or so since his first adventure with cheerios; after months of not tolerating any food with the slightest of chunks, he's turned some sort of corner and now is relatively excited to try all manner of new foods.

today we tried another old standby for parents everywhere - the goldfish. at first, he's not too sure what to make of this strange looking snack, but after watching munch on a few ( dozen ) of them he thought it might be a fun thing to try.

after munching on goldfish, odin seemingly contemplates what new and perhaps even more interesting and challenging snack pops is pulling from his magic bag of mealtime tricks.

i had no idea that they made honey graham crackers perfectly sized for little hands.

again, it might seem like the most boring of details for parents that take these things for granted, but when we see him so aptly maneuvering such a small object towards his mouth we think one thing:


now, i have to admit that we had grand hopes that odin would prefer all organic, "natural" foodstuffs over more heavily processed goldfish and graham crackers ( although certainly they're not the worst foods in the world by a long shot ), but while he couldn't get enough of the other foods, he looks at us as if we're silly when we try to get him eat these organic apple and cinnamon things that we even confess taste a bit like cardboard. hi. ho.

"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.
