the eric update - day 508: happy thanksgiving from odin and us!

in one sense, thanksgiving was a lot less eventful this year since we didn't have any early morning dog seizures.

but maybe it was travelling almost 1000 miles ( 1609 kilomters ) over the past week has finally caught up to him, or maybe it was because odin has had 5 new teeth come in over the same time, or maybe he's getting his first cold ( we've noticed that he's had an increasing amount of post-nasal drip that is apparently irritating his throat and causing a cough. maybe it's a cold or maybe it's an effect of all the teething? ) - whatever the cause, odin spent much of the afternoon after this picture was taken having a prolonged and uncharacteristic Really Big Meltdown. he's usually quite laid back ( as long as mamma is close by ) but i guess today he decided that enough was enough.

oh well, at least he got to enjoy a small bit of his very first thanksgiving dinner .

and yes, it does take a lot of skill to take a picture when exactly nobody is actually looking at the camera :-)

"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.
