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.


Grandparent time

Jordan gets to hang out at home for the rest of the week... Her Grandma and Poppy are here because of a big tree house project underway in our backyard. I'm really glad that she had that chance, because today was a really big sleep day. She woke up early and less than an hour later, she was back asleep. She slept for more than 3 hours, and took a nap two and a half hours later in the day... along with another 45 minute one. She wouldn't have come close to that kind of sleep if she'd been at school. So I'm so glad she got to rest at home today. The down side, when I came home to feed her, she had gone back to sleep. So I didn't get a chance for my midday feeding... and that means I missed out on my midday cuddles.

But Jordan got Grandma love... And I'm always happy for her to get that from any of her grandparents.

Jordan has a big day coming up. Both sets of her grandparents will be there this weekend. She's getting baptized in an outdoor church service this Sunday. I hope the weather cooperates. Cam had his baptism outside in Grand Rapids... And it just felt more special outside. Instead of next to the Grand River, we'll have the ceremony at a local garden.

Today when I came home from work, she was in her Grandma's arms and she just saw me and gave me the happiest smile. The moment I picked her up, she giggled and buried her head into my shoulder. It was wonderful. She squealed and smiled for a good 15 minutes or so with me before it was obvious she needed to go to bed. But man, those were special 15 minutes for a Mommy like me.

By the way. I finally updated a few weeks of pictures.
