ex machina


the eric update - day 684: laying in the grass is fun, except when it touches your head, hands and toes.

sigh. i guess it comes with the territory of living with a toddler who was born too soon that when you see this sort of behavior your first thought is that it's symptomatic of a sensory integration disorder and not simply a result of prickly grass feeling funny on one's bare skin.

Oy, the worrying! My kids weren't preemies but I find myself in a hypervigilant state of tension sometimes, scanning them for some horrible disorder.

Then I tune in to what I'm thinking and deliberately lower my shoulders down and away from my ears where they've been uncomfortably hunched for the last ten minutes.

That's a great photo! I hate the feel of grass on my feet. I identify, Odin!

I was reading Blogging Baby today and was suprised to recognize Odin's picture accompaning an entry. Thought you might like to be made aware it's there.

Are you working with Blogging Baby? Or was this done without your permission? Just curious!

That is a great picture :)

My daughter freaks out when her hands touch the grass.. I never knew there was such a disorder for that. Now I am wondering if she might have that.. eek.

oh, i know that feeling quite well :-)

nope. not working with blogging baby and they didn't ask me to use the image ( and i didn't know about that particular post ), but i guess i'll let them slide since they did link back to the flickr site and they've been following along with odin's adventures since the beginning. thanks for the pointer!

oops. sorry! f it helps, i think if she had an "tactile aversion" you'd probably have seen it in other ways.

"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.
