ex machina

the eric update - day 883: 'tis the season for felling poor, defenseless christmas trees.

if thor can have an oak, certainly odin is entitled to help pick out a christmas tree every year.

almost exactly two years ago he was swaddled in a sling on the tree farm barely aware of his surroundings and now he absolutely, positively insists on helping me haul the tree all the way out despite the fact that the temperature is a brisk 18 F (-7 C ). maybe next year or two he'll be able to throw it on his back and whistle the lumberjack song :-)

"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.
