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.


Happy little girl

Jordan enjoyed another day at home with her grandparents. In between the massive naps and eating, she got to swing in her swing. She is so happy in there. When she isn't swinging back and forth, she starts kicking her feet into the air and tries to get things moving. It's cute.

On a developmental note, our occupational therapist was sick this week, so we didn't get a chance to work with her. But I've been trying to show Jordan how to feel her balance when she sits. For some reason, she really doesn't like the feeling of sitting. But tonight, I held her on her changing table, and for a few seconds, she held herself up at a 45 degree angloe without falling over. It was the first sign to me that she's figuring it out. I'm not surprised. She's figured everything else out. She still hasn't even tried to roll from her stomach to her back. It's apparently something babies usually do first before they can roll onto their stomach. One of my co-worker's babies did that the first week he was born. I'm not dwelling. But I do think it's interesting what she can and can't do. I realize in her own time, she'll figure it out. She's a smart kid. And cute too.
