ex machina

the eric update - day 991: from toddler to young boy, feet first.

with spring rapidly approaching and odin outgrowing all his winter clothes we thought it was the perfect time to take his measurements in preparation for getting some new attire.

his shoes and boots in particular are feeling a bit snug so we first decided to measure he feet. i was thoroughly unprepared for the answer gleened from the sizing chart in the l.l. bean kids catalogue.

"size 10!?" kris exclaimed incredulously.

"huh?" i uttered with my usual level of perceptiveness.

the incredulity arose not from the number itself, but from the fact that l.l. bean considers size 10 to be the demarcation between toddler and young boy. sigh.

keep in mind that we both remember when his feet were barely bigger than a nickel, so you'll excuse us for being overly amazed.

and no, i'm not sure he's yet taken off the hat.

and yes, as is almost always the case these days truck is right in the center of the action :-)

"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.
