I decided to start blogging about Jordan from the moment I found out I was pregnant. Jordan was born with a little arm that didn't grow like most babies. Her left arm stopped just above the elbow. Now I'm committed to making sure Jordan gets everything out of life. We feel blessed to be the parents of a very special little girl.


That would have been so nice...

Jordan slept from midnight until 5am. That's five hours. How great is that? It would have been so much better if Cameron hadn't waken up at 3am with an ear ache from his recent swim lesson. So we got him calmed down a little before 4 and Jordan woke up at 5am.... Down by 6am. I was up again by 7:30 to get Cam ready for school.

We were so close to a big chunk of sleep.

The boy has new ear drops so I'm hoping tonight will go better.

So I think I've figured out why we're getting closer to longer sleep for Jordan. I just pumped since the girl fell asleep before I felt she drained me... And I pumped almost 6 ounces. That's awesome. Why? Because that means she's eating more and may need as many constant feedings! Hooray! I'm also thrilled to see such big pumping output so I feel like pumping is worth my time when it comes to stockpiling food for the girl when she goes to daycare. I'm kind of nervous about that part... I never left Cam longer than 4 hours with a day care professional when he was Jordan's age. Randy brought Cam to me once a day for a feeding. I'm hoping to break from work once a day for a feeding... But that isn't the same as her coming to me. Anyway. I fear that day when Jordan's caretakers tell me she didn't have enough milk. I'm determined to not let that happen... And I really don't want to live a Just In Time factory setting. There is so much pressure when you don't have any food stored up. JIT is great fo car manufacturers... JIT isn't so great for breast milk.
