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.


Hooray Jordan

We had our first meeting with our physical therapist in almost two months. We haven't seen her since she filmed Jordan for a "stride study" that she's working on. Jordan wasn't walking properly and was really knock-kneed. Since then we got new shoe inserts and today was the proof: They really work. Jordan's therapist was REALLY happy with the development of our girl in the last couple of months. The biggest reason: Jordan got the inserts right before a big growth spurt, so those inserts made sure Jordan was standing properly and it really helped the bone growth go in the right direction. I'm thrilled. Randy and I both have noticed how Jordan has gotten a lot steadier. It's great to hear an expert confirm. So when I thought Jordan might need inserts for a couple of years, her therapist thinks we might work her out of the inserts by summer.

Does that mean we might be able to have all kinds of cute sandals this summer??? We can only hope!

SO I also have a confession. It's a pure bad mommy confession. Last week I let Jordan eat a little banana during an occupational therapy meeting. I placed the half-eaten banana on top of our black piano. Apparently I forgot it. We left town, we came back. When I walked into the living room, I smelled something gross... SO I kept looking around for what was dying. Apparently it was an old black banana on an old black piano. Wow. That was gross. I'm a bad mommy.
