the eric update - day 510: time for a utility belt and powertools?

we thought that odin's first opportunity to play dollhouse with his cousins ruby and evelyn would be a fantastic opportunity to once again subtly reinforce the idea that playing with dolls is just as fun a way to pass the time as smashing toy cars.

but instead of playing with the dolls odin quickly decided that his time was best spent doing odd jobs around the house, including fixing the broken front door.

certainly in this respect, as kris will readily testify, he is not his father's son.

maybe i should get him a utility belt and power tools so he can make some progress on the "honey do" list.

evelyn looks on as odin tries and tries again to figure out how to best fit the door in the doorjamb. anyone who has ever tried to replace a door will know that it's really not as easy as it appears :-) i guess sooner rather than later i'll have to get him acquainted with the wonders of a sawsall.

Your little guy is so cute. My Scott would rather play with trucks and cars than with dolls as well. I think it is inbread in some men.

"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.
