Loki video from August

We are currently vacationing in California, and we'll have lots of photos and video from here. But for now, here are video clips from late July to early September. Yes, the aspect ratio is off (it is stretched vertically) but I don't have the energy to fix it now.

  • Loki dances and plays some music
  • He walks a dog
  • He gets crazy after being up too late
  • He sits on his first real bike
  • He dances on a chair, and then with Omi ("like this, mouth open")
  • A funny moment: He had just been dancing before this clip, but then starts to exaggerate and groan. I comment that he will be either a dancer or an actor. He replies "An actor. I am the actor. Yeah, really!" 
  • He jumps into the ocean (a bit loud)
  • He builds a sand castle
  • He talks to himself on the beach
  • He plays with water, screams, and bobs his head
  • Pretend play

About Loki Sky

Loki Sky is a special little man. He was a very early micropreemie, weighing only 610 grams (1 lb, 5 oz) after 24 weeks, 3 days gestation, born to an American Father and a Dutch Mother in Berkeley, California on October 18, 2008.

On January 11, 2009, while still in the hospital NICU, his one kidney stopped working. It was repaired after three surgeries. After spending time in three hospitals in three cities, Loki came home on February 17. He struggled with eating, and then stopped in July, leading to 8 days in the hospital, a failure-to-thrive diagnosis, and a NG feeding tube. On October 10, a minor surgery installed a G feeding tube. Another procedure replaced it with a new one, and then again with a Mic-Key button in Jan. 2010.

In August 2010, he and his parents moved to the Netherlands.
