the eric update - day 378: odin's first ride in a swing!

it appears that this is the week for belated birthday gifts for odin; i guess everyone was probably waiting for us to arrive back in town. certainly he and we don't care one wit, but hopefully he doesn't start to expect new gifts for weeks and weeks to come :-)

today we even had an impromptu second birthday party with a bunch of his aunts and uncles and cousins and he had fun ripping the wrapping paper of all sortf of fun things including his very first little tikes swing ( and no, it's apparently not the one that was recalled )!

we weren't sure if he'd like it or not, but he quickly let us know that is was just about the greatest time ever!

maybe even more fun than than being pulled around by pops in his walker.

i think it's certain that we'll be spending a lot more time out underneath the tree in the front yard for the rest of the summer.

"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.
