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.


4 Months Old!

4 Months Old!!Jordan turned four months old today! I spent so much time snapping pictures today that I almost forgot to post on here. Jordan enjoyed her 4th month birthday by finally taking 3 naps. Three good, long naps. And that should give her the chance to sleep 12 hours through the night. It won't make up for the sleep she lost this week, but it will help her get back on track in the sleep department.

It's fun to watch how Jordan continues to grow by the day. She likes to sit in her high chair and play with toys. She coos and squeals when she's having fun. There's this little green frog toy that my Aunt Trish gave Jordan that just makes her smile every time the frog ribbits. Cam keeps walking up to her and says: "Who's that happy baby?" Very cute.

Playing ballAn amazing thing happened when we were playing on her play mat... She tried to grab the dangly toy ball with her arm and hand. They didn't quite connect, but she got that toy into her mouth. She's obviously moving into that teething mode when everything can help her make teeth. Cam's first tooth popped out in his 5th month and Jordan is moving in that same direction. Anyway, she's bringing it all together. Playing footsie on the couchHer teachers thinks she's been compensating by grabbing toys with her feet. I've noticed she does a lot of playing with her feet as well... But I also remember Cam playing with his feet. So it's all developmental. Jordan's probably just playing with her feet more because it's much easier to bring her feet together than bringing her hand and arm together.

Tummy timeI'm a member of BabyCenter.com. It's a place I've gone to since I was pregnant with Cameron. The website sends weekly developmental emails. I've promised myself to not pay much attention to those things when it comes to Jordan's development. But yesterday I got the first developmental email that said something I know Jordan can't do yet. I'm okay with that, but I realize the inner competitor in me wants to help Jordan beat down the delay speculations. She is improving her abilities during tummy time. To me, that is a great success.
