Odin- a little man with a big name

Odin became a little man with a big name on July 26, 2006 at 11:01 PM. He currently resides with his Mommy, Daddy, dog, Honey, cat, Grasshopper, and fish tank of un-named fish in Santa Cruz, California where he enjoys long walks along the ocean, daily visits with Daddy to the greenhouse in the backyard, and being social with Mommy and his friends. Odin will be getting a sibling at the beginning of October and he's really excited!

Current Age: 2 years (25 mo.)

Hi all.
Life is pretty tough right now. You probably won't hear from us for a while. We'll just call this an intermission.

"Intermission: A break between two performances or sessions."

That's what we're having. A break between sessions. One session ending. Now we're taking a break to recoup. Then, once we regain our footing, another session will begin.

Thank you all for your love and support. Odin, Zephyr, and I are doing as best as we can under the circumstances. We are overwhelmed with the circle of love that surrounds us and find solace in the good that exists in people.

We'll be back after intermission.

Love, Star

Chunky Monkey

Zephyr is gaining weight at twice the rate of the average baby :) He eats, and eats, and eats! It's really fun having a chubby baby this time. He has great squishy cheeks that I just want to kiss over and over again. Odin is being a WONDERFUL big brother. He asks to hold Z, cuddles him, brings him toys and gives him a pacifier, checks on him for me, brings me diapers, and is just great. I'm starting to get the hang of juggling the two of them. Uncle Adam comes to visit this weekend and then my parents leave Wednesday so I hope I have everything under control by then! Today Grandpa took Odin for a hike in the woods and had him for the entire day while Grammie and I took the baby to San Jose and got a much needed double stroller. I can't wait to take the two of them to the park and try it out! Here's a photo of Z just to bring a smile to your face...
