ex machina

the eric update - day 181: gifts from strangers! and working out.

with everything going on during the holidays, i almost forgot to mention that we received a super fantastic package from carolin all the way from freiburg germany.

in addition to a postcard, she also sent an ornament that we'll hang in his room all year round and a picture book that's soft and fuzzy and makes a crinkley sound when you touch the cover!

i can't think of a better example of the spirit of the holiday season and it really does make us smile big smiles to think about a stranger caring enough for odin to pick out and send him special gifts.

thanks carolin!

working out is an important part of odin's day. and although he's not lifting weights or doing yoga yet, it's still a pretty good workout for him to try to grasp a toy from his new gymini gym while climbing on his boppy.

he doesn't get too far yet, but i'll bet it won't be too long before he makes short work of the boppy obstacle course.

phew! working out is hard!

i'm sure everyone can guess who he's looking at so intently while he's giving his i'm-sooooooo-tired-pick-me-up look.

I think its a boppy (vs bobby). We had one for our two kids and they loved them. Even when they start sitting up, its handy for keeping them stable. Unfortunately we gave ours away, and now have another one on the way.

ahhh, right you are about 'bobby' versus 'boppy'. thanks for the catch - 'twas a typo. i'm going to have to fire my editor :-)

"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."

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.
