the eric update - day 212: discovering the gloworm!

a while back odin received a new gloworm in the mail from an "internet friend" and i'm horribly embarrased to admit that at the moment i can't remember who sent it. sigh.

in any case, every so often we take out the gloworm and see if it catches odin's eye.

until today he probably would have had more fun with a bag of wet marbles. but for some reason, known only to him, this afternoon he decided that the new gloworm was utterly captivating.

before this picture was taken he was breaking into laughter each time the toy's face lit up, but by the time i arrived with the camera he was in a more introspective mood.

very recently odin has begun investigating the world with his hands. while he's been "grasping" at things for some time, it's only been in the past few days ( perhaps a week ) that he's started to really explore the nuances of surfaces, such as new gloworm's face.

Hello Snowdeals,
Unless you received more than one gloworm, it would have been me that sent it via your Amazon wishlist. I had been following odin's progress and wanted to send a little something. My preemie son used to love his gloworm and I'm delighted that odin has discovered its magic! (my "little" guy is now a 6'4" strong and healthy 21-year-old)
All the best,
Ann in Victoria BC Canada

hi ann!

no, we didn't receive more than one gloworm, so you're The Very Special Gift Giver. thank you so very much and many apologies for taking so long to properly acknowledge your kindness. if i remember correctly you sent the gift around the time of our baby shower which was right before we were transferred to the "new" nicu, which was quite a hectic time indeed.

thank you very much - it's nice to know that you finally had a chance to see odin enjoying your gift.

"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.
