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.


Fantastic OT day

I'm posting kind of late -- It's actually Thursday now. But I wanted to mention how Jordan rocked at OT today. We were encouraging her to try to roll onto her belly. For the first time, she really lifted up her head and helped her shoulders move. She actually moved onto her little arm and held her body up for a short time on her own. She really lifted her head up more than I've ever seen when she was on her belly.

It was exhausting for her, but she did a GREAT job. I was very proud.

Jordan's big problem is getting sleep when she's at school. There's a little girl who has a ton of energy and thinks that any noise she makes must be VERY loud. Anytime Jordan is trying to get to sleep, this little girl starts making noise and Jordan just gets upset and can't get back to sleep. No fun. She'll have to learn I guess. But in the meantime, I've had some pretty unhappy nights getting her down to bed. I'm so glad I can see her in the afternoon for a feeding or to take her to an appointment or I'd barely see her in good spririts these days.
