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.


First Zoo Trip

Jordan got to go to the zoo for the first time... Sure she didn't realize it, but it was cool. My cousin Mike and his two oldest kids joined us at the zoo for some fun for a few hours. The challenge of the day: I left the stroller in the van when Randy went home yesterday.

I'm an idiot.

So I carried Jordan around the zoo for three hours. It was fun and Jordan was such a trooper. She slept in my arms quite a few times and smiled at strangers. She did need to eat a little -- so she can now add the zoo train on her list of places she ate with mommy.

After the big zoo trip, Jordan took a huge nap... and then went to a restaurant with her uncle and I. By the time she got home, she was fast asleep. She's going to have a big day tomorrow at Shriners. I'm nervous for some reason. Probably because it's going to be such a long day. I do look forward to meeting with more experts and get more thoughts on how to help Jordan.
