the eric update - day 337: DADA! versus the jar lid.

as we get down to the final days before we leave town for "out east" there are, of course, endless details that need attending to between odin's naps and his The Four Bees.

today i happened to be gone for much of the day, always aware that if i didn't make it home before our super sleeper's bedtime of 6 p.m. or so that i might not get a chance to say "goodnight" ( and oh how that statement reveals how much my life has changed in the past year )!

i walked in the door, just as kris was finishing his dinner, getting ready to prepare his bath and as soon as he saw me he belted out "DADA!".

sure he's been practicing saying "dada" since my birthday and kris claims that he'd been saying it all day, but i'll always choose to believe that he was happily and emphatically letting me know that he was very pleased to see me.

like me, he doesn't seem to care too much if talks with remnants of food in his mouth.

of course, moments after his melt-my-heart greeting, a far more interesting object has captured his attention.

the lid to his jar of peas.

Same goes for RI--we're in the process of moving but RI is so..."compact" that it doesn't matter. if you're in in any of the neighboring states just drop us a line! We'd be glad to show you the sights!!

"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.
