ex machina

one seriously empty nest.

kris and odin have been visiting family in grand rapids for the last eight days! eight! days! rumor has it that they're coming back tomorrow, but if i were a betting man, i think odds are good that they may stay through this weekend. jeez, louise that's a long time. and they even took mauja!

so, it's a proverbial ghost town around here which might sound relaxing, but in reality there's a whole lot of missing going on. it's quiet. too quiet :-)

being here all by my lonesome also reminds me once again it's amazing, all things considered, that we only have one photograph of odin and us around the house! and that one was only recently given to us by a grandparent. the picture of he and kris instantly became his favorite and it's not uncommon to discover that he's grabbed in off his nightstand and slept with it clutched close to his chest.

"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.
