the eric update - day 30: first bath from mama!

late in the night we were pleasantly surprised to find that we could give eric his first bath! he's been getting "spit baths" all along, but surely none of them were as fun as the one he got from mama. most of the hands you see belong to kris, but every so often nurse sue lends a helping hand. i, of course, am darting in and out, trying to capture the entire thing.

micropreems don't usually like baths very much; from their perspective it's just something that makes them very cold and all the touching can lead to overstimulation tantrums. but i guess eric isn't like most micropreems, since he was quite content through most of the process.

I am so pleased to see Eric and his Mother with smiles on their faces. I hope Pops has one too. I love the photos, they will go in our album. Grandma Sondra

it was a wonderful experience; maybe i would make a "making of" documentary where i setup a video camera and record me jumping around trying to stay out of the way kris and nurse sue.

"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.
