the eric update - day 679: goodbye, highchair! we hardly knew ye.

it seems like just yesterday that we were test driving odin's new highchair. but really it was 479 days ago! and recently we've been noticing that he's getting so big that he really doesn't need the highchair anymore and that it's really just a convenient toddler corral for us during mealtimes. so we thought we'd spend more time concentrating on teaching him good table manners and say goodby to the highchair. but not before we had a celebratory snack of cottage cheese and bacon, which are two of his favoritest foods.

i have no idea when it's "normal" to ditch the highchair, but my guess is that there's a lot of variability - maybe somewhere between ages 2 and 3 is the average? regardless, thanks to the wonders of digital photography and flickr you can take a trip down memory lane and watch odin grow up in the highchair slideshow.

Has Odin always liked Cottage Cheese? At 13 months Oliver counts it among his least favorite foods. It shows up every other week on the daycare menu and I always feel badly that day (and try to make up for it at dinner).

[ 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.
