ex machina

the eric update - day 483: really pretty much almost probably just about walking!

if the strictest interpretation of the definition of a toddler requires regular and repeated actual toddling then i think we're officially ready to induct odin into the wonderful world of toddlerdom!

just like when he started crawling and standing unassisted he's been in a bit of a gray area for a few weeks and it's been difficult to know for certain whether it's fair to say he's really walking or if maybe we're just being overly optimistic observers.

but in the days since his developmental assessment he's been making great strides ( ha! pun intended! ) and we're increasingly confident that any independent critics will agree he's a toddling toddler and quite close to walking full-time!

obviously we're quite impressed that's he's managed such a feat within a week of his 1 year age adjusted birthday and a full 3 months before i myself ever got the gist of the bipedal behavior.

"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.
