the eric update - day 1408: odin's new bike!

the easter bunny gave odin a bicycle bell which was a little curious since it didn't come with a new bicycle. but we rectified that situation in short order and odin is now very happy to wake up at 6 a.m. and ask to go for a bike ride. every. single. day. i have no doubt that one big reason for wanting to go for a ride so early might have something to do with all the construction equipment nearby.

our local bicycle shop, bluedog cycles carries a model made with easily removable pedals so the child can learn to properly balance themselves without teetering on training wheels.

but alas, odin would have not ride the bike without training wheels, stating emphatically that that is how you learn to ride a bike ( and perhaps implying that we were really silly for thinking that he could learn withouth them! ).

"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.
