Good news all around

I took Jordan to meet with her pediatric orthopedic specialist this week to make sure she doesn’t have any anomalies in her hips or spine.

A special meeting

Thanks to the Sammy’s Friends group that I help co-moderate, two other families met up with us at the St. Louis Zoo today. We got to meet two sweet little girls who Jordan proudly noticed: “She has an arm like me!” It was so cool. We all walked around the zoo, talked about things any…

Incredible bravery… And more

Jordan is brave. We’ve known that for a while… but HOLY COW did she prove it over the weekend. Her brother had a huge birthday party celebration at a local indoor playground. It’s a super large version of what my gym has… and the gym playground has clearly given her the bravery to do ANYTHING.…

A natural

Miss Jordan is a natural with horses. It’s so cool to watch. She had equestrian therapy this afternoon and I got to watch everyone oooh and ahh about her ability to sit very upright even when she’s trotting with the horse. By the way, Jordan’s horse’s name is Thunder. She did so well today that…
