ex machina

the eric update - day 265: the littlest scientist. making the mobile, not.

welcome to another installment of the very occasional series on our littlest scientist.

while odin has been enjoying his mobile for 178 days up until today, he's been content to sit and smile as the mobile turned in slow circles above his on the changing table.

but today he figured out that his legs are now long enough to kick the mobile! what fun! i watched in amazement as he figured out how to time his kicks to get the best effect as i wondered how this new found fun was going to alter the diaper changing dynamic.

and then after having his fun kicking the mobile around, he quickly discerned that he could stop the mobile with his foot, making it far easier to grap it with his hand!

and what piece did he choose to grab first?

well, of course, the one with the smiley face on the bottom that's been making him laugh day after day over the past couple of months.

"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.
