ex machina


the eric update - day 318: odin and the other guy. a self portrait.

today was a slow day - the perfect kind of day for hanging out on the back patio, wondering when it will be warm enough to "open" the pool. and i guess as good a day as any for a self portrait with odin.

which is not exactly the easiest thing to do when all you have is a 50mm lens on your camera and no tripod or remote shutter release; regardless, i love the fact that it looks like we're both wondering if i'm ever going to snap a picture that's in focus and doesn't cut one or the other of us out of the frame.

it appears that odin doubts that it'll ever happen before his bedtime.

and is it just me or does it appear as if we have identically furrowed brows with a slight squint to the eyes?

You are both adorable! You both have that same serious face. I totally agree with the furrowed eyebrows and squinty eyes! Now we know where Odin gets his good looks.

Hi! (from Louisville, KY) I stumbled across this site when Odin was only a few days old. I found myself coming back everyday to see how he was doing and have kept coming back since. It's really amazing to me, a stranger, to see how far along he has come.

You seem to appeal to a wide audience. I'm only 19 but I love children. I plan to go into teaching so development of children is fascinating to me.

Odin is such a cutie.

Well, just thought I would stop lurking around and say hello

It's not just you. If the child had dark curly hair and a soul patch, he'd be your mini-me. I kid not.

hello rachel! thanks for commenting and i'm happy to hear that you've been enjoying the site for quite some time ( hard to believe it has been almost a year! ).

it may strain credulity, but until very recently, i didn't really think he looked very much like me. but lately, i have to admit there seems to be a passing resemblance :-)

"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.
