ex machina


the eric update - day 379: whooohoo! we got a baby sitter and we're going to a concert!

hopefully odin won't take it personally but we're "going out"! it's not the first time we've gone out since coming home from the nicu but it's not a common occurrence; i think i can count on one hand, er, maybe even just two fingers the number of times its happened, so it's still a little new and slightly nerve wracking.

of course, it's not that we're concerned about his well-being while being cared for by grammy pam. maybe we're just really concerned that we'll find out what a grand time he had when we're not around.

anyway, we're going to see ani difranco in a very "intimate" frederik meijer ampitheatre so it should be fun, even it she's not my super favoritest artist ( not that she's my least favorite either ) to see live. then again i haven't seen her show in years, so maybe things have changed.

way back in the day when kris and i were attending the evergreen state college ( go geoducks! ) she'd play every year on the campus; the first year, maybe 1992, she arrived in a vw bus and every after her busses and entire support system kept get bigger and bigger and bigger. until it was unwiedly for campus shows. it's nice to see her getting back to basics nearly a decade later.

hopefully it'll be a great concert and we'll come home and find odin fast asleep and not giving his grandmother a hard time.

luckily for us it was an early concert and finished before the sun went down :-)

unfortunately, she didn't do "fuel", which is a personal favorite as well!

"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.
