ex machina

the eric update - day 521: 1/30th of a second before falling face first into the snow.

so, i had the bright idea that i might be able to capture a photo for the holiday card that i swear we're going to get in the mail before march by going outside for a walk in the fresh snow in his ubercute sherpa/fleece "bunting" ( a.k.a. The Bear Suit ).

except i failed to fully appeciate while taking the picture that if you look close you can see that his arms are not actually in their the sleeves. which makes it challenging to keep one's balance.

and impossible to use one's hands to cushion the falls when one trips and tumbles face first into the snow.

sigh. and no, it hasn't escaped my attention that you can still see his recent bathtime bruise which also happened on my watch.

"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.
