the eric update - day 111: a visit from uncle matt and auntie deb!

well, they're not his "real" aunt and uncle, but matt and deborah might as well be; they've been patiently waiting for a long time to get a chance to hold little odin and now that odin's cousin is around visitors get a two-for-one deal on holding babies. it's still fascinating to see people's reactions when they see him live and in technicolor after seeing only pictures for 111 days. these days, the first reaction seems to be shock at how big he's getting, which is quite a different reaction that even just a few weeks ago.

what you don't see in the pictures is that they brought their dog, malbec, from chicago so there are five (!) dogs running around wreaking havoc while this picture was being taken.

while there was less sneezing today than in past few days, odin was still had a stuffy nose this morning that once again cleared itself by the afternoon. he's not running a fever or exhibiting any signs of getting a cold so the source of the stuffiness is still a mystery.

there's big news to report on odin's progress with nursing! but i'll wait and write more on the trials and tribulations of breastfeeding a micropreemie tommorrow.

"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.
