the eric update - day 180: meeting miss rachel! happy new year!

one of the nice side benefits of having such a special baby is that not only do we get a chance to meet complete strangers who know all about odin but we also get to reconnect with friends that we haven't seen in many, many years.

it might have been six years since the last time we had a chance to see miss rachel, so it was a super nice holiday treat to find out she was in town and very much hoping to see odin ( and perhaps us, too :-) ).

well that was quite a year!

as i look back a year ago ( or two or or three or or four ), it's odd to see what i found remarkable. it is just like that commercial.

having a baby really does change everything.

i suppose that i could hope that 2005 would be a little less eventful than 2004, but if there's one lesson we've (re)learned this year it's that sometimes things don't turn out quite the way you planned and the best you can do is make some lemonade if life hands you some lemons.

happy new year!

"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.
