I heart this little girl. She makes my heart swell with pride. Jordan loves big, she loves with her whole heart and I am thankful. She makes my whole world a better place to be. When my glass is half empty…she fills it back up. When I need a hug, she’s the first one their to offer it up. Over the last several months when things have been tough, I have found a child who is unselfish, resilient and loves unconditionally.
Jordan amazes me on a regular basis. She has been the strongest and most loving big sister. This is all in spite of the attention that has been taken from her. She went from being the only child for four years, to one who’s mother was taken from her for five weeks (see inpatient hospital stay posts), MIA for eleven weeks (see NICU journey with the twins) and yet she still holds onto her optimism and her love of life and family. She loves her sisters fiercely, and without question.
I could not be more proud of my oldest child. I’ve written on this topic before (See “Luv Bug a.k.a Big Sister post) and I continue to be more amazed everyday with her unending grace, maturity and love for all of us.
Jordan will be five next month and I can hardly believe it. She recently finished her Pre-K year. Her graduation from preschool came complete with a beautiful song, “The World is a Rainbow” which she had the best time singing to everyone in attendance.She got to wear a graduation cap, and she received a diploma.She is officially on her way to Kindergarten and we are so proud of her.
Jordan loves to dance. She’s got more rhythm than her Dad and I put together. I often find her banging on our Wii Rock Band drums to the beat of whatever song is playing on one of her kid TV shows. Recently, she was in her end of year dance recital and she did wonderfully. She shaked her tush with the rest of them like a champ. And we were so tickled to watch her have fun and enjoy music.
Jordan is a creative soul. She loves to draw and color. She loves to make creations out of random things like tissue paper and cardboard boxes. I love this about her. We can’t throw anything out in the house because she wants to use it to create something.
The tissue paper skirt she created……
One of her usual spots…out in her lanai playroom drawing and coloring…..
Jordan is silly, sassy and oh SO sweet…I am eternally grateful to have her as my daughter….
Toes are tasty?!?
My heart is overflowing……
