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.


Sudden Realization

I picked up Jordan at school today... And she made MASSIVE strides towards walking. She can go long distances by herself using the play walker when she's outside. Today, she made her next big step towards walking: She will hold your hand and walk distances. I did it with her a bunch of times. WE HELD HANDS AND WALKED!!! How sweet is that?

You can see a little bit of her walking skills right here:

I'm working at a conference these next couple of days and got to bring Jordan with me while Daddy and Cam went to their first T-ball practice. She showed me all of her growing walking skills.

That's when I realized the fact, the real fact of life. My girl is going to walk for the first time without me around. I happened to catch Cam's first steps just because I was lucky. I had just come home from work and his babysitter and I were floored by what we had just seen. I know she's going to do it without me. She's too busy at school to wait for me.

I am going to start working on this new reality. I'll be okay. Really. (I'll convince myself eventually)
