ex machina

the eric update - day 1358: a boy of letters.

odin has been able to identify letters for eons, but he's recently gone into overdrive questioning us about how to spell words and wanting to practice drawing letters.

today he was practicing his name and the letter "a".

after drawing a giant capital 'A', a few 'O's', an upside down 'd' ( unsure which side of the circle to put the vertical line so he put it on both sides ) and a 'i', he looked up mischievously as if we wouldn't catch that he didn't finish with an "n" and said, "look! a Q!"

Very nice. Shoshanna is OBSESSED with writing - tends to write her name as follows:
SSOOHHAA (it should be noted that the S's are universally backwards). If the N's show up, they are also backwards.

"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.
