ex machina

the eric update - day 249: playin' on the 'puter.

so i'm sitting at the computer with odin, trying to read recent comments on my flickr photos. the only problem is that odin has figured out that when you sit in front of this particular device the appropriate behavior is to begin banging away on the keyboard, which makes sense since he's seen me doing just that for a long time - even while he was in the nicu and i was passing time making movies.

he looked so cute banging away on the keys, happily "talking" about something very, very important that i decided to snap a photo, which wasn't as easy as you might think since he's sitting on my lap, which means i'm forced to "shoot from the hip" by holding the camera down by my side, shooting, and hoping for the best. but everytime he hears the sound of the autofocus motor, which is by now a very familiar sound - he turns his head to look straight at the camera.

i guess i shouldn't be surprised since he's had a quite a bit of experience with associating the sound of the camera and staring at the lens.

"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.
