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.


So she must really like that blanket

This morning I had an important meeting, so Randy took Jordan to school. After my meeting I figured I'd go back to school and feed the baby and spend some time with her. When I got there, Jordan was cranky and obviously exhausted. What was the problem?

There were a couple of reasons. First, she usually takes her morning nap at home. She didn't nap at all that morning. Second... And probably the major reason: Her blanket was left at home. Her teachers knew she was tired. They did everything they could to help her fall asleep. They even started grabbing other baby blankets (you know the ones that the babies never use, but the blankets sit in their beds... discarded and ignored). Jordan would give the blankets a try... Then cry and throw them away. Yup. She loves her pink lambie blanket.

So I went home to get it. I needed to go back home anyway. So when I got back with the blanket, I fed her a little more, let her cuddle up with her blanket on my shoulder. Then she fell asleep. She even took a really long nap for the first time in a long time later in the afternoon. Very cool.

It was a long day. I don't feel like Mommy or Daddy got to spend enough time with the kids. I can't wait for the weekend. By the way. Jordan turned 34 weeks old today!
