the eric update - day 657: it's all about the shoes.

there was a day, not so long ago, when getting shoes on odin was - at least according to him - a traumatic and tortuous event.

but now it's all about the shoes.

and when he's not greeting us in the morning at his bedroom door with his shoes in hand ( after he wakes up and grabs his shoes, he stands at his door, knocking, while saying "knock. knock" ), he's spending great amounts of time and energy trying to put on our shoes and run around the house.

someday he might be needlessly embarrassed to know he enjoyed wearing his mother's shoes, but for now he's just pleased as punch to show me just how quickly he can get up and down the stairs (!) with them on.

Hey--are those Simple Julia shoes?! Because, I want some. I don't blame Odin for taking them for a test drive.

It is so great to read Eric's story , and see the hope there is for babies born so tiny. Some close friends of mine just has a 1lb 4oz preemie 2-1/2 weeks ago, and your story certainly offers a lot of hope. Their story is here, I think about how great it will be to be able to look back on 657 days of progress!

"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.
