the eric update - day 561: dodgeball!

when working on odin's perceived "issues" with walking on uneven or cracked terrain , we thought it might make things more challenging by throwing balls at him while he walked around trying to avoid mauja's dogbombs.

just kidding. it's a trick of the camera and the ball is actually several feet behind him. honest.

but, it's only taken a day and he's already a super champ at walking on unfamiliar territory which makes us think that his earlier problems were just due to inexperience and not vision loss.

or maybe he's just really, really adept at compensating quickly :-)

"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.
