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.


Sleep, sleep and sleep in a newsroom

Jordan slept 12 and a half hours last night. That's pretty incredible. Especially when she slept in a newsroom during her naps yesterday. Anyway. She slept even more today -- small naps all day long. The down side: She kept falling asleep in my arms or in student arms instead of falling asleep in her bed. As long as we don't make that a habit, I think she'll be okay.

Since she was so rested this morning, we did some big exercises... She moved her arm extension around a bit. But she was full of smiles:

At the station, she got all kinds of love and affection. She continued to show off her very silly smile with her toungue sticking out. It was so cute, our friend and co-worker Gary wanted to smile just like her:

I helped edit a piece of video at work today -- and I still have it. I'm not quite as fast on the keyboard, but I can still use all of my editing tricks with 3 months away from that skill.

This afternoon, one of the producers and blog fans, Sarah, presented us with an amazing gift from her mom (another blog fan). She kindly made a very cool quilt for Jordan and she didn't leave Cam out -- he got a WAY cool dinosaur quilted pillow case. I'm hoping to take a couple of pictures of them in good light. Hopefully I can do that tomorrow. Thanks Patti!!!!!
