the eric update - day 317: really pretty much almost probably just about crawling!

i thought, for reasons that seem fairly silly in hindsight, that infants instantaneously discovered that they could crawl. that there'd be a discrete moment when all of a sudden they figured out that they had the ability to propel themselves across the floor.

but, at least with odin , it seems that things are so clearly defined and for the past day or so he's been really pretty much almost probably just about crawling!

every so often, when he's really motivated, he'll move his hands and feet together in a way that's more coordinated than even just two weeks ago and "crawl" a few inches towards whatever has captured his interest.

he's not overly confident in his new ability, but i think it's (almost) safe to say that he really has started a new era of personal mobility!

I actually saw the exact same thing with my son that you're seeing with Odin. For weeks it was obvious that he was so close to crawling but just hadn't made the final connection. And then one morning I put him on the floor to play and he just crawled away.

"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.
