ex machina

the eric update - day 256: La-Z-Boy.

i didn't pick up the camera for most of the day and before i knew it, at the early hour of 6 p.m., odin began displaying all the sleepy time signs that indicate that it's nearing the time to start The Four Bees, STAT!

our almost no cry sleep solution is continuing to work its wonders and he's not only sleeping regularly over 5 hours at a stretch, but he's also getting sleepy earlier and earlier in the day.

maybe there's something to the conventional wisdom that sleep begets sleep after all.

i must admit that even though our experience had convinced us that it's never a good idea to delay The Four Bees, it's still hard to fight the temptation to delay the process for the sake of convenience ( i.e. finish dinner or whatever ) or - relatedly - to think that it's better to make him stay awake on the thought that he'll get really super duper tired and sleep like a log through the night. at least with odin, both fallacies inevitably lead to a No Sleep Solution.

"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.
