the eric update - day 414: odin's first Really Big Ouchie.

amongst the many things that are amazing about odin's adventures thus far are that somehow in the past four hundred and fourteen days he hasn't caught a single cold and he hasn't had a Really Big Ouchie.

and while we can still be amazed at his ability to fend off infectious agents, today has the dubious distinction of being the day odin gave himself his first fairly good self inflicted wound when he cracked his mouth on the edge of the dresser as he tried to dive out of mamma's arms right at precisely the moment that she was starting to lean over to pick up something off the floor.

it's a little hard to tell but his cheek is swollen and his lip is cracked on the corner of is mouth and the inside of his cheek, which experience tells me is one of the worst places to crack your lip because it takes forever to heal. you can still see the red marks on his face even though this picture was taken hours after the initial incident.

but as if to make us admire even more greatly his is strength and resilience, soon after the intial incident he trekked off to our local car dealer with kris only to unexpectedly sit and wait almost 2 hours for an oil change for our jetta tdi.

he never complained once.

Poor little guy, only the first of many Really Big Ouchie's to come. He is a cutie and has grown so much since I started reading your blog.

i'm sure you're right. he loves to climb up things that i'm he'll have lots more ouchies in the future.

"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."

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.
