ex machina

the eric update - day 113: another walk around the block! and a belated milestone observation.

oh c'mon, it hasn't been that long since we got home from the nicu; so don't give me any gruff for posting a photo of our second walk around the block.

it still feels wierd - in a way that's almost impossible to describe - to walk around outside with odin.

it's almost like it's not real ( as strange as that might sound ).

i really dropped the ball and forgot to mention that yesterday was odin's 16 week birthday and his 4th full moon birthday. i guess it says something that weekly and lunar milestones are ever so very slightly less remarkable.

i just double checked and it looks like every 28 days is not quite a full moon, but i'm going to celebrate them anyway because, well, i'll use any excuse to photograph a beautiful autumn moon.

Technically, the lunar cycle's about 29.5 days, which is why you'd be off. But pay attention this week - Wednesday evening/Thursday morning will be a lunar eclipse! And according the map on this page (, you should be in a good spot to see it and no doubt get some great pictures as well.

"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.
