ex machina

the eric update - day 166: resting on the Really Big Field Trip. and the amazingly expressive sisu boy!

after spending so much time on the road for the Really Big Field Trip, little odin is quite happy to spend some quality time on grandma and grandpa salmi's comfy carpeted floor all bundled up in his favorative blanket.

there's nothing quite like the restorative power of a good nap.

of course, when odin is visiting his finnish relatives in the upper penninsula of michigan, we're obligated to have odin wear his sisu shirt at least once, since sisu is a finnish word that means "stamina, perserverance, courage, and determination held in reserve for hard times".

at one point during the day odin enjoys having a very emotive "conversation" with his great aunt dolly.

he starts by wildly gesticulating about something that is obviously quite important and continues with a series of expressions make it hard not to imagine that he's having a grand time expressing himself.

"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.
