ex machina

the eric update - day 224: la chalet d'odin.

a longtime reader follower of odin's adventures sent me an email with a picture of an eating establishments in brussels that she frequents when on business in the area - la chalet d'odin, which is in the hotel bristol stephanie.

it's fun to think of a complete stranger walking by a sign an ocean away while on a business trip deciding to snap a picture to send to odin; naturally we decided we simply must print it out and let him play with it.

for reasons known only to him, he became fascinated with the back of the photo as he was trying to figure out the best way to mangle the print.

at first he attempted at play with the photograph using his fists in the same way that he does when he grasps more bulky objects like the supersized paci or pooh, but he discovered that it would bend and contort and fall out of his hands.

in amazingly short order he learned to use his fingers and to more gently grasp the edges of the picture. this is exactly the kind of fine motor control that's often delayed in micropreemies, but i guess we shouldn't be surprised since we know he's a boy like any other.

He's such a doll! I love the picture of him taking steps from the other day :)

BTW - Being a total clothing nut (to my husband's dismay), I have to ask... What brand is that little outfit? It looks like a Hanna/Zutano crossover, but I can't place it. I'm in LOVE with it! Odin always has the cutest clothes!!! (Quite the stylish young man).

PS. Kyle says hello :)

"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.
