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.

Home just in time

I got home this afternoon... While I was on the phone with the family this morning, Jordan took six steps across the room without any encouragement.

When I got home this afternoon, she started walking non-stop... Holding hands or not holding hands. Then something amazing happened while Cam, Jordan and I were playing with chalk: Jordan started standing up and walking all by herself. ALL by herself! The scooting world is days away from leaving us. And my simple non-mobile baby world is going to change.

The picture? Well it was taken awhile ago, but I had forgotten my brother-in-law text messaged it to me. It's fantastic and one of the best I have of both kids at the same time. I makes me happy, so I thought I'd share.

I'm so excited to be home. I'm extra excited that Jordan waited to really kick the walking into full gear until I got home.

That's terrific!
My mom came for a visit when my older son was one. She decided it was time for him to walk. So that's what she did with him every day for two weeks. She would hold his hand and say, "Let's walk, walk, walk." And he in his baby voice would repeat, "Walk, walk, walk."
He ended up walking on his own the week after she left.
Stubborn!
I'm glad Jordan waited for you to be home to take those first steps.
