the postcard project: happy holidays from odin and us!

we'll bend the rules a bit and include our own holiday postcard in the postcard project. it's our project so i guess we can do whatever we like :-)

after contemplating many different designs we ended us choosing to go with one that was inspired by the flickr postcard. i should probably mention that the pooh quote was originally posted on day 11 - the call on a very small animal.

hopefully nobody will be too upset that they are getting their card a little later than planned. we barely squeaked this one out and just got the cards back from the kinkos today. it's a little hard to tell unless you look at a large version of image, but the card has over a hundred images of odin from the day he was born through just last week and our Really Big Field Trip. the images are sequenced so that as you can scan from the top left corner across the rows to see a natural progression of each week of odin's life.

we'd wish we could send these out to everyone who sent us a postcard with a return address, but i'll have to see how many we have left after getting them out to close friends and family before i make any promises.

it's obviously been quite a year for us and we're grateful for all the support and well wishes we've received from people we know and people we don't know.

so, happy holidays from us to you!

Happy Holidays!!

It looks like Odin's first Christmas was just a blast. That little Ruby is soooooooooo very cute and it would appear that Santa knew just where to find her :).

It's really great to see that you have been reading to Odin all the way along :). We started reading to Jacob before he was born and continued to do so from the day he was born. To this day (at almost 28 months) one of his favourite things is to be read to, and we couldn't be happier! There are times when even the greatly revered, ELMO, is on the boob tube and he'll bring us a book and demand 'WEAD!'. We musta done something right :). I'm sure the 'payoff' will be just as sweet for you folks!

Happy, happy!

hi emily!

yes, santa did know exactly what to get ruby for christmas. and ruby's so cute she has her own "ruby" flickr tag :-)

i can only hope that odin will come scampering over demanding to have us "WEAD!" to him. that's such a great story and congratulations on having raised an avid reader!

happy holidays!

"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.
