ex machina

the eric update - day 1091: the boy genius makes his poppi a card.

odin set out with the simple instructions from his mamma to make me an extra special card for father's day, which led to a wonderful abstract purply design.

and when he was complete he ran to his mamma and asked her excitedly to come look at his creation while pointing out to the three letters he drew without aid and said slowly, "happy father's daaaaaay, d-a-y."

while he's known his letters for quite some time and we've been having him practice writing his name with us slowly showing him how to write each letter, i do believe this is the very first time he's ever written a word with any help whatsoever.

"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.
