ex machina

day 803: halfway to the floor.

because we see him everyday, it's sometimes difficult to tell just how quickly odin is growing. sure, everybody knows that most everybody grows and it's all trite and everything, but to me it was just yesterday that his feet were barely bigger than a nickel, so i still reserve the right to be surprised at how, in what seems to be just a few days, he has grown enough so that his feet rest very firmly on the rung of the a chair that's halfway to the floor!

i sat in shock and awe, trying to imagine what the day would be like when we sat for breakfast and his feet touched the ground for the very first time. suddenly that day seems not so far away.

"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.
