the eric update - day 221: happy birthday, flickr!

flickr is one year old! which means, i guess, that they grow'd up along with odin.

you'll notice that he discovered for the first time that balloons are fun to lick. i'd like to know what sort of super balloon material they found to make this particular balloon because it's the same one we bought on day 62 to celebrate his second month birthday.

That stuff is crazy - we've had a similar balloon for at least a year and a half now, and it's just as puffy as when it arrived.

It may be 2.5 years, but definitely at least 1.5. Out of control.

Ah, good ol' mylar
Wonder if Dupont knew when they invented mylar in 1952, that it would also be usesful for babies to crinkle, and occasionally lick. :-D

i thought mylar balloons eventually deflated, but i might be thinking of mylar balloons with helium inside. maybe mylar balloons with heavy ol' air can stay inflated indefinately?

"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.
