ex machina

the eric update - day 146: saying goodbye to auntie m.

auntie m is heading back to the east coast tommorrow so we trekked back across the state to visit her at odin's grandparent's pad ( yes, we might have hummed "over the river and through the woods" while we were on the road. ).

at one point during the visit grandpa snowdeal got the honor of a double fingergrab while auntie m tried the ol' over the shoulder trick.

add a supersized paci to the mix and i'm not sure what else a growing micropreemie could want.

well, i take that back, as everyone in the room could attest, a growing micropreemie could want food. lots and lots and lots of food.

of course, little odin's grandparents have pictures of me and auntie m on the fireplace mantle and it's hard not to get sentimental when i see pictures of us mugging for the camera when we were much, much younger than we are now.

it's odd to think that the grandparents ( and great grandparents! ) probably feel that only a blink of the eye has passed since i was struggling as a micropreemie to when me and auntie m were being cute on the Big Red Couch at camp to now, when we're all grown up and watching history repeat itself.

"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.
