20 Months Old!

Jordan got to celebrate her 20 month old birthday by meeting a brand new baby. Her name is Charley and Jordan was skeptical of the experience. She patted her very gently, but was more interested in babbling and talking to Charley’s family. Either way, it was so awesome to hold a little baby in my…

Fat Bat Cat Sat

I’m still out of town but for consecutive days… When I talk to Jordan she starts babbling in a very Dr. Seuss-like way. “Hi Jordan. I miss you.” “Fat Bat Cat Sat Bat Fah.” “Wow. That’s great. Then what happened?” “Fat Cat Sat Mat Bat Fah.” “That’s amazing. I can’t wait to see you.” It’s…
