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.


Such a busy weekend

Jordan is exhausted. I'm exhausted. We're all exhausted. But MAN did we have fun this weekend.

First Cameron, Jordan and I went to see High School Musical 3 in the movies Friday night. It was a heck of a production and we all had fun. Even Jordan was singing along and actually seemed to follow the story line a bit. She didn't get too antsy and no one seemed to mind that she would talk to me from time to time. (thank goodness)

Even though we stayed up late for our big movie night, we all got up early to ride in Jordan's school float for our homecoming parade. It was a massive parade. HUGE event. We rode in a float close enough in the front for us to be able to watch some of the parade from the sidelines as well. Jordan loved the bands almost as much as grabbing the candy people threw at us. I captured a moment when she started dancing to a band:

She kills me.

After the parade, we regrouped and got to spend time with good friends for lunch only to return to campus to walk around the journalism school and go tailgating. Jordan got to attend her first tailgate. She was all about cheering with the grown ups. Very sweet stuff.

The game went pretty well except we were all a bit cold (hooray for big blankets to keep us warm). Jordan had her moments, but on the whole she and her brother were awesome.

After sleeping in this morning, I took the kids on a big hike. It was a PERFECT fall day and we spent an hour and a half hiking, picnicing and taking pictures. I took some awesome shots of Jordan and Cam. It was a ton of fun and we were kind of tired. But was the weekend over? Nope. We had a costume party in our neighborhood that I couldn't pass up. So we got to dress the kids up and hang out with the neighbors. It was breezy outside, but a great time to let the kids run around and be silly in character. Jordan is a butterfly princess this year and she just OOOZES princess. She was so dang proud to be a pretty princess. I just loved how proud she was walking around in her pretty outfit. The pretty outfit pictures will arrive tomorrow. This week is going to be crazy... So I'll do my best to keep everyone up to day. I actually had a really great opportunity to learn a bit about prosthetics as I prepare for our big trip to Chicago next week. I can't believe it's next week. Anyway, I hope to take a few moments to document my thoughts leading to our big trip. I just have to catch up on a little sleep and work!
