Prosthetic talk

We went to meet with the local prosthetic guy. He says his company can help us work with pediatric upper extremity experts to get Jordan the best prosthetics that she needs. It will probably take a lot of letters of pleading with the insurance companies, but I think we’ll get her what she deserves and…

One month old!

Jordan is officially a month old today. Pretty cool, eh? I’m also noticing a turn in her behavior. She is so into the world, she is starting to have a hard time letting go of her alert time. So today, I started making sure she lays down if she’s been awake for 2 hours. That’s…

Farewell family and hello experimentation

The Reeves and Wilkins left this morning… They are patient folks to deal with our constant feeding schedule yesterday. Today, I’m starting Jordan on my exhaustive sleep training. She’s starting to show signs of regulating sleep. So I pulled out my favorite baby book: Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Marc Weissbluth. I’m going to…

I'm a milk machine

The girl ate almost every hour and a half all day. Consider that… If it takes 10 to 30 minutes a feeding, I’ve had maybe an hour here and an hour there to myself. But that doesn’t include burping time and time helping her get gas out of her belly. So I really haven’t done…

Family time again

All kinds of visitors for Jordan today… Her Poppy and Grandma returned for the weekend with Moma Dot and Daddy Junior. I think Cameron is more excited by the visit… But I think all of the grandparents are thrilled to see the girl. I swear I think Jordan smiled a bunch today. If not, we’re…

Four Weeks Old!

It was another busy day… And I tried a new sleeping plan of attack. Since Jordan got home, I’ve been sleeping in her room… And I’m a little tired of that. So last night, I decided Jordan’s sleep is regulated enough that I can return to my room. So what did I do? I fell…

Say a prayer

If you know who “Taco” is, please say a prayer for him and for a safe birth. If you don’t know who “Taco” is… Still, say a prayer for this little boy who isn’t born yet. He needs strength for his parents, family and his doctors who will be able to help repair his heart.…

That would have been so nice…

Jordan slept from midnight until 5am. That’s five hours. How great is that? It would have been so much better if Cameron hadn’t waken up at 3am with an ear ache from his recent swim lesson. So we got him calmed down a little before 4 and Jordan woke up at 5am…. Down by 6am.…

Diaper change

Jordan wore a lot of clothes today — 3 different outfits! Why you ask? Because she grew out of the newborn diapers today. They couldn’t keep her from messing up her outfits. I timed t out pretty well… I had 6 newborn diapers left. I’m starting to see a sleep pattern for Jordan… Midnight to…

Rats… We're not there yet.

So I didn’t post about it yesterday because I didn’t want to jinx myself… But two nights ago, Jordan slept for five and a half straight hours at night. I felt rested yesterday… Very rested. It was great. So I didn’t write about it because I wanted to see if she could do it two…
