ex machina

the eric update - day 349 : the many faces of odin - wonder and determination.

as i was playing with the camera, testing the light as odin was playing with a few toys not really intending to save any of the photos, but as soon as he heard the autofocus motor, he decided to crawl over and climb up the leg of the rocking chair i was sitting in, presumably to get a closer look and i captured this photo of him looking at the flash with quintessential expression of wonder.

you might think that after 349 days the camera would be a boringly familiar object, unable to attract the interest of an infant always on the prowl for newer and more interesting experiences. but apparently you might be wrong.

moments later, odin decides that he really must get a closer look and tries his best to crawl up onto the rocking chair.

he isn't quite able to pull himself up on the chair, but it certainly isn't for a lack of trying.

such determination!

emy: "Oh, that second face is just priceless!"

i think so! it's the first picture i think i've taken where you can clearly seen that he's quickly trading in his "baby face" for a grown up "toddler face".

"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.
