ex machina

the eric update - day 525: learnin' lefty loosey, righty tighty.

when he's not doing simple shape sorting and trying to put one thing into another, odin has been spending a great deal of time mastering the complexities of putting on and taking of lids; i think he may only be days away from stumbling upon the "lefty loosey, righty tighty" rule, which is quite a complex concept to grok.

but sure enough, he can now spot caps and lids of all shapes and sizes - from pop bottles to jugs of laundry detergent - and if he can't quite untwist the top, he'll bring it to us and plead for us to give him a hand untwisting it so he can gingerly attempt to screw if back on as he attempts to figure out why it doesn't stay on after one applies an equal number of twists in either direction.

"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.
