the eric update - day 526: evidence of an advanced Food Finding Heuristic?

certainly there's little doubt that we humans are very adept at using pattern recognition to create rules as we attempt to create order out of chaos, enabling what some refer to as rapid cognition.

since odin doesn't need to concern himself with using his rapidly advancing cognitive abilities for basic survival, he apparently enjoys using his pattern recognition powers to hone his Food Finding Heuristic.

even though we try not to eat much "processed" foods ( or at least we try not to give him much of the processed foods that we oh so occasionally have around :-) ) that hasn't stopped odin from getting very good at picking through new grocery bags to find The Good Stuff; even if he's never had the food in question, such as these fig newman cookies - he is increasingly confident in his judgement that whatever is inside must be absolutely positively super tasty.

"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.
