pregnancy update: on surviving babiesrus

as one who can never escape the 'i' in intp and also as one who quite possibly could be mildly agoraphobic, there's few things that i consider more tortuous than shopping. doubly so if the shopping lasts longer than 15 minutes and triply so, if it involes buildings with large amounts of square footage and masses of pregnant woman invading your personal space.

and so it was no small miracle that i made it through 2.5 hours of registering for baby shower items at our local babies "R" us. as a sign of just how well kris knows me, she scheduled the trip at 7:00 p.m. on a friday evening on the suspicion that the store would be less crowded than a saturday afternoon, thusly reducing the chance of me freaking out and engaging in passive aggressive button pushing. she's smart like that.

Not that you'll have a chance to repeat this torture, but taking a "pro" with you cuts down on the time you spend in there. I went with a mother of two--we skipped a lot of the confusing stuff and went right for the major cool baby booty. Make sure the highchair is all vinyl seating and cushions--cloth gets yucky.

"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."

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.
