ex machina

the eric update - day 427: this is the face of a boy about to be abandoned.

or rather, this is the face of a boy who doesn't care that he's about to be abandoned. o.k. really, he's not going to be abandoned, as he's about to spend the afternoon and evening with grammy pam while we go out ( again! ) for some unofficial end of summer golf, grilling and adult beverages.

we're almost saddened to hear that odin apparently doesn't even notice when we're gone for hours and hours and seems to enjoy playing with grandma without the slightest hint that he'll ever get distressed at the prospect that we may never return, even when we don't get back before bedtime!

you'd think he could at least feign at least one or two episodes of hysterics just so we could feel missed :-)

It gets worse; my daughter is 3; when I go to pick her up at my parents house; she informs me that she needs to stay with grammy and papa and that i need to go home to be with daddy. I agree...not the entire time do I want her to cry over me; but a slight wimper would be nice :)

"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.
