the eric update - day 527: color picker!

i think we might be in the midst of the burst in cognitive capabilities that we've heard can occur between 15 and 18 month, which i guess makes sense since odin is 17 months "actual" and 14 months "adjusted".

quite recently we've noticed that - in addition to honing his Food Finding Heuristic, learnin' lefty loosey, righty tighty and practicing simple shape sorting - he's also getting quite accurate at picking objects out by their color!

so, although he still seems unmotivated to practice his verbal skills and we're not sure at what distance he'd still be able to see the objects - at least we know he's right on track with identifying colors which can be expected by around 18 months :-)

"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.
