the eric update - day 554: communiqués from odin's throne.

i wasn't intending on writing a daily log [ ahem ] on our adventures with elimination communication but today was a big day.

three days ago, i thought it'd be a tremendous struggle just to get odin to sit on the toilet for more than a few minutes and couldn't possibly have imagined that he'd be semi-regularly doing all the business that one normally does on the loo!

and we would have had an astonishing 80% success rate had he been able to get up more easily to the toilet by himself!

we might switch to a standalone trainer like the totco over the bjorn trainer that we're currently using since it'd be an easier for him for do things all by himself.

as i stated above, communiqués from the throne will probably be minimal because, well, some things are better left unphotographed. but if you're thinking about elimination communication and think your infant/toddler might be amenable to the idea, we heartily give it the odin seal of approval.

the results have been amazing and i only wish we had started a few months ago.

is it common knowledge around the world that "throne" is a colloquialism for toilet?

"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.
