ex machina

more evidence that the fact that i was born with a birthweight around 2 pounds isn't doing me any intellectual favors:
"Babies who are a little bigger at birth have a marked advantage in terms of intelligence later in childhood, a study suggests."

"Other studies have clearly shown that being underweight at birth seems to correspond with poorer mental development."

"Although not proven, it is suspected that the relationship between IQ and birthweight may be due the nutrition available to the foetus during early pregnancy, a time vital to neurodevelopment. "
add that to the fact that i'm left-handed and therefore supposedly more susceptible to death by unnatural causes and the future is so bright, i gotta wear shades.

"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.
