ex machina

the eric update - day 1559: on twinkle, twinkle and honking horns.

even though odin says he wants to take piano lessons, we thought it would be a good idea for us to see if he had the necessary patience, temperament, eye/hand coordination and digit dexterity with some homeschooling on his new piano.

i know kids pick stuff up quickly, but i was still surprised that it took about 5 minutes of teaching him how to play twinkle, twinkle little star before he was playing it straight through and chastising me for trying to coach him. and certainly no issues with finger dexterity/eye hand coordination.

we can bounce around on the black keys playing the "honking horn" song endlessly :-)

"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.
