the eric update - day 128: a little changing table time.

at this point i'm wondering who is still interested in stopping by for boring ol' pictures of little odin on the changing table :-)

Me! I hit my favorite blogs while batch XSLT jobs run.

I like the angry crying picture. He sure calms down quickly (at least that's the way the serious of photos makes it look).

Me! Checking in on little Odin and your family continues to inspire me daily.

Enjoy that changing table time. Before long they're too big for the table and then before you know it, they're using the potty and then they leave to college... It goes too fast! (and they probably don't really like it when you visit them at the dorm and cheer for their poopie, so cheer for the poopie while you still can) :D

I check in every day and have since he was two weeks old. It's fascinating, touching, inspiring and just plain warms my heart to see his progress.

And now that I have a grandson who is over 2000 miles away--it's nice to see pictures of babies and imagine what my little man looks like.

Count me in! Your kiddo is a daily inspiration. And let's face it--he's just beautiful. Who wouldn't want to know what's up with him?

Based on random sampling statistics, I forcast that over 100,000 people enjoy your daily postings but don't respond to polls :-)

Man, I was gonna post about how I just loved seeing how big he's gotten. I thought I'd be the lonely only.

No way! Odin's a hit! Thank you so much for sharing your life with me (and everyone else!)

As an aside: Do you think the kids that didn't get blogs when they were babies are going to feel left out and unloved?

Oh yeah--post #13 is from snakehairedgirl :)

jeeez. a seemingly innocuous, offhand comment brings out all the lurkers :-) heya everyone! sometimes it's nice to put a comment to all the anonymous webserver requests. and while grandpa e's estimate might be a little high, i have definitive proof that vast majority of you don't respond to polls.

snakehairedgirl: As an aside: Do you think the kids that didn't get blogs when they were babies are going to feel left out and unloved?ha! more likely little odin will antagonize me endlessly when word gets out on the playground that his pops is a complete freak and can't stop taking pictures of him :-)

I truly look forward to your daily posts? So any baby yet from the Aunt? Odin is doing so well, he's come so far.

I landed here by poor search habits - my daughter is Sabina Ex Machina.

I got hooked!!!! I am enthralled by this loving and well-articulated adventure of a life and a family.

I don't check in everyday but I do find time to sit down and catch up on Eric and his going ons.

I have a new puppy...a I love hearing about Eric and the dogs.

The blog is a terrific source of information on the experiences of micro preemie families.

Being Canadian I am also fascinated by your cost analysis of your health care options. much information and humanity in one family's life...why wouldn't I be intrigued and wrapped up!

You seem to be such a lovely family..all the best for you!!

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.
