the eric update - day 461: happy homecoming anniversary to odin!

longtime readers may remember that october 8th is a very special day for us since it was the day that odin odin came home from the nicu! i know i've said it before, but you get to hear me say it again - it's literally almost impossible to imagine that a whole year has passed and we certainly could not have let ourselves believe what a happy , healthy boy he's become.

and since it's his homecoming anniversary day that can only mean that his cousin evelyn will be having her first birthday in a few days, which is why we thought it might be nice to have him practice his john hancock on her birthday card. of course, on this particular day, mister serioso preferred to intently study the card while holding the crayons, looking at us as if we were crazy for trying to get him to deface the card.

so no, smarty pants, he's not sending himself a card for his age adjusted birthday, but if you dropped one in the mail ( click here for the current address ) soon, i'm sure you could probably get one to him on time :-)

I just read your article in parents magazine and I cried. I'm so happy for you guys and happy that your baby is healthy! I was so scared when I was pregnant.I feared preeclampsia! I also wanted to tell you guys that you are very strong people and that you have a beautiful baby!

"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.
