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.


Putting up with a lot

Jordan had a really successful PT session today. We're trying to teach her to use her legs like legs that can leverage and help her move around. So far, she's kind of treated her legs like extra hands and arms. So I learned some ways to recognize moments where she can use her legs better. It's tricky, but I'm starting to learn how to read her signs about how she wants to move. Most of her challenge right now is she knows where she wants to go, but she doesn't know how.

I took her to a party last night and tonight. She was pretty done with an unusual bedtime schedule today. Last night she was a trooper... Even fell asleep on the floor in a quiet room. Tonight, she wouldn't leave my arms and REALLY wanted to go to bed. So she did. Hopefully she's sleep a long time and try to catch up on the lost sleep.
