the eric update - day 665: preparing for an impending growth spurt?

if his stomach really is the size his of fist, i have absolutely no idea where he's putting all the food he's been eating lately. i mean, after eating a good sized bean and cheese burrito and a whole container of yogurt there wouldn't be much room for anything else. but of late he's taken to also gulping down 15 ounces (!) of whole milk before falling asleep for the night. fifteen fluid ounces - that's almost half a liter!

and more often than not he's sleeping 12-14 hours a night in addition to taking a 3 hour nap during the day.

all this eating and sleeping makes me wonder if he'll be fitting into any of his clothes in the near future as i imagine his body is working overtime building new infrastructure.

"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.
