ex machina

the eric update - day 423: really pretty much almost probably just about standing unassisted ( and walking )!

it seems like just yesterday that i was commenting about the fact that odin was in a gray area with respect to crawling , so it's hard to believe that we're at a similar point with standing unassisted and - maybe - walking!

over the past week or so, he's been intentionally letting go of whatever he's holding onto and standing by himself - sometimes for 5 or 6 seconds; but it's hard to capture on camera, so i thought i might entice him with a set of keys. the ploy almost worked, but not quite :-)

of course, the increased frequency of letting go of corners of tables and whatnot has dramatically increased occurrences of ouchies ( in fact, if you look close to his nose, you can see the results of another recent scrape-up ), but he seems to be surviving.

and while he's been walking with the assistence of a walker for quite some time, we've noticed that occasionally when he stands unassisted - if he's really motivated - he'll even take a step or two!

we might be in this gray area for some time to come, but he's so coordinated when he walks with his walker, that i suspect that sooner rather than later he'll be tearing around the house on two feet!

Way to go Odin! I could never catch Magdalena standing those first times with the camera. She was to fast and she knew when I was watching her and would deny me! LOL Man, pretty soon he'll be running and you'll wonder what happened to the days you weren't chasing a toddler around the house!

Hi, Just wanted to make sure you know that the wagon has been recalled by the manufacturer. I tried to buy it for my child and they are no longer selling it.

hmmm. we knew they were recalled but i didn't know they stopped selling them since the problem was supposed to be fixed with some replacement wheel clickers. are you sure they weren't just out of stock?

"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.
