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.


5 Months Old!

Wow. How fast the time goes by as Jordan grows. It's pretty amazing. Today was a holiday, so we had to work with the kids. And I don't fear that, I actually consider that a fun day in my world. Cam and I got to hang out while Jordan took her morning nap. After we got her ready, we took a bunch of Jordan's 5 month old pictures. She's so sweet. And Cam gets her to laugh SOOOO big. When she's around Cam, her big smiles turn into open mouth smiles.

After the many pictures with Jordan and Cam, we headed to work. It was great. Cam played with the reporters and Jordan helped me work on the web. She ate and napped a couple of times. Acutally, her second nap was so long, I can say today was a productive day at work. Randy and Cam left early to go shopping an dstart up the grill for a local slab of yummy beef (brisket to be exact).

Jordan got to hang out and smile with many reporters and producers... But I have ot just say how amazing she was: The only time she complained was when she was hungry or needed a nap. She's so peaceful and pleasant... Very second child. She's much more willing to put up with what she's dealt.

Now that Jordan's been with us 5 months, I think back on how much we've learned about her and how she's becoming a little person with a personality. She is happy playing... with a person or on her own. She loves music and she really loves Cam singing to her. Heck, she loves Cam doing anything with her. She's having a hard time focusing on things like eating with Mommy when there are things to see or listen to... Even when a dog shows up in her room, she has to stop eating and see the dog. She'll show off her smile and return to eating for a little while... Until the next noise. She sleeps 12 to 14 hours a night and rarely has a hard time going to sleep. She's a joy. I'm so lucky to be her Mommy. And to think she's only been with us for 5 months. It feels like she's always fit in with our family.
