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.

Feeling a bit stressed

I have a lot going on right now... And I don't feel like I'm ready for any of it. I'm leading a huge project for election night. Jordan and I go to Chicago the next day to build a new proshtetic and a few days after we get home I'm headed to Shanghai to conduct training on new media... Although I don't know specifically what the media group wants me to train. Thanksgiving is right after that. Chirstmas comes roaring after that.

I barely have time to do my laundry.

I'm stressed about expenses.

Jordan is so happy. Cameron is happy. I just want to go outside, hike around with the kids and take naps when I want to.

I need a breather. There's no time for a breather.

So what did I do today? I bought the final gift (I'm pretty sure final) I'm going to get Jordan: A new dance outfit. I'm thrilled with her love of dance and her current dance outfit was giving her a wedgie as she danced in class today!! I figured that out when another parent said: Oh! Is Jordan potty trained? I said yes and she told me she could tell because Jordan was showing off her rear in all its glory! HA!

***Another tiny thing I just realized - I'll be in China when Santa first comes to our local mall. I have ALWAYS taken the kids to the breakfast with Santa event. I'm going to miss it this year! WAH!***

He's a ton of help and I'm sure my in-laws will come over (they live 5 hours away) if he needs extra help.
