ex machina

the eric update - day 564: splish, splash - odin takes a bath!

even since his first bath from mamma, odin has loved his baths. and thanks to the fact that it's one of The Four Bees he has had a bath almost every single night since coming home from the nicu. for better or worse, he so strongly associates bathing with sleeping that if we ask him if he's tired, and he is, he exitedly runs for the bathtub.

but these days, you'd never know that he's close to bedtime considering how much fun he's having taking his splashing game to the next level. it has, apparently, become big fun to see how much water he can get on him mamma and pops.

but i guess it's his way of winding down because almost without fail, 30 minutes later he's fast asleep. for 14 hours. without waking.

in some ways, it seems like just yesterday that we were draping odin in a cloth diaper while giving him nicu baths to help him feel, if only slightly, like he was bundled in the womb.

sure, i'm not exactly unbiased, but it's still amazing to take a slow stroll down memory lane via odin's bathtime slide show.

"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.
