the eric update - day 237: couch potatoes.

is there anything better than relaxing on a comfortable couch with one of your favorite dogs on a slow saturday?

i think not.

amusingly, when i was taking the picture, i repeatedly attempted to get odin to look directly at me, but alas, the television proved to great a force to be reckoned with.

we've noticed lately that he's increasingly fascinated with the television, which makes me wonder why he finds it so interesting. it's strange to see that after only 237 days, he's so captivated by the television that he'd rather watch it over playing with his toys. i guess it's probably time to be a little more conscientious about turning off the t.v. :-)

I babysit a 3 year old every Monday night, I have done this for about 2 years now, but have known this 3 year old since she was 2 weeks old. Since day 1 she has been obsessed with commercials on the tv, you can talk and play throughout the entire program, but as soon as the commercials come on, the short loud music, bright flashy colours that only last 15-30 seconds, absolutely impossible to get her attention when the commercial came on. Even as young as 3-4 months her head would turn and she would refuse to do anything with you, and now, she'll come running when she hears a commercial and will just stand there until they're over and then return to whatever she was doing.

"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.
