the eric update - day 478: brrrrrrrrr! time for mittens?

while we've certainly been aware that autumn is in the air, apparently we've been in denial about how quickly we might be needing to equip odin with mittens for our late afternoon walks since his hands were surprisingly chilly and red as he sat down for dinner.

but given our lack of success with foot coverings, i think we'll be soon soliciting advice on how to coerce him into keeping his hands warm and toasty through the winter, since it probably won't be too many weeks before the first snow!

Good luck with that. We just chose jackets with really long sleeves. The mittens had elastic around the waist and it took her a super long time to figure out how to get them off when both hands were covered. heh. This year she likes mittens (we've been wearing them here) She likes putting socks on her hands and waving goodbye. :)

Yes, I experienced the same dilemma. When my youngest was 5, I would still find him outside in the middle of winter playing in the snow and mittens were no where to be found! Go figure! He's almost 13 now and no worse for the wear! or not wear...ha!

"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.
