ex machina

the season of giving.

someone, somewhere must have studied the varied kinds of gift givers. there are those that give because that's what's "expected". and then there are those people like myself who think about all the great gifts that would be perfect for this person or that person but never get around to getting it all together and end up feeling a bit guilty about their lack of holiday gift giving execution skills. and then there are people like peep's mama ( and here ) who manage to put together a perfectly perfect box of gifts.

not only did she and her family send odin a SCHOOOOOLBUS! and a "superfantastic odin mix" cd filled with her son jack's ( a fellow micropreemie ) favorite songs, but they also included a big ol' treat for mauja and truck and...and...US!

we've never even met "in real life" so i'd like to know how she knew that skor candy is one of my favoritest kinds of candy. even though she claims to not be a good explainer in her directions, even a dolt like myself can follow along and i'm totally going to steal the idea.

thank you amy, andy and jack. it's perfect.

"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.
