1st Hair cut......kind of!

Well, we finally decided to get Jordan's hair cut. Well, just the bangs. The poor kid most of the time couldn't see anything because his bangs were in his eyes. I couldn't get myself to cut the back yet. His curls are way too precious and I don't know what I would do without them!

Of course I had to do a photo shoot showcasing his beautiful hair before it was cut. At the time, I wasn't sure on how short it was going to be cut!

Jordan had a great time as I was taking pictures......he is such a ham. He had fun washing his feet in the sink!

We went to Glen's sisters hair stylist. She did a great job with both mine and Jordan's hair. He wouldn't sit in the chair by himself, so Glen also got to sit in the hot seat!
The first snip of hair! Unfortuntly I didn't save any hair. I talked to her about saving some, but there really wasn't enough cut to keep anything.

So I decided on only triming the bangs and just cleaning up the back......just a little:)

At first he was dang mad, then he went into a transe!

Finally he was all done, and didn't know what to think! At least he could see again!

After we got home I called my family to tell them about his hair cut. Of course I had to tell them we chopped it all off! My poor mom and all the times I've tried to trick her! She couldn't believe that I had "cut it all off" and yelled to the kids and my dad in the background about what I had done. I heard nothing but complaints through the phone. Then my sister got on and chewed me out, then my brother Wyatt got on the phone and said the cutest thing. He told me that he couldn't believe I had cut his curls, and that "his curls was his Jordan"! I didn't have the heart to continue with the story so I told him the truth. They were all very relieved!

November in a nut shell.......

November was a fun and busy month! Here are a few of the highlights......

Jordan and his buddy Renn being pushed around by Bridger and Sawyer in their box cars! I had to keep Jordan's box around for weeks! I was finally able to sneak it out!

Here is Jordan and his cousins again, sitting in the back of the Jeep! It is so much fun and crazy to see Jordan turning into a little boy......he just loves being like the big kids!

For Jordan, thanks to Grandma & Pa, Christmas came early! My parents babysat for us one evening, when I went to pick him up, he had a new toy. The original plan was to show him the toy, my parents were way excited, and then to put it away and forget about it until Christmas. Well, as we left, he tried picking it up to bring home with us. My parents couldn't say no! He has loved it ever since. That night he woke up out of a sound sleep and played with it from midnight until 2 am. Thanks Glen for playing with him while I slept:)

Jordan has always loved music and dancing. Uncle Aaron gave Jordan his old headphones! He loves to walk around with them dancing. Glen also likes to give him his ipod to listen to. He is so dang cute! I keep telling Glen that hopefully he doesn't break it....or is that the plan to get a new one...Hmmm?

Now, I think this is fine, but others might not. People will have to give me their input on this. While at my parents Jordan decided he wanted to take care of Missie's baby. He was so dang cute and sweet with them. He loved that they both had a binky! He would share his with the baby and visa versa.

He also gave the baby kisses......

...and loves. When we left he brought home one of Missie's baby's to take care of. He takes good care of him. He will rock him, give him loves and kisses. I think that it is really sweet!
Last, but not least, we have conquered the stairs......well, kindof! As of now, we no longer put up our gate! Yay, I hated putting up, down and climbing over that dang thing! Life is so much easier without the gate! He does really good with them, besides when he tries to drag things up and down, then he has a problem. If I could do it all over again, I would teach him stairs sooner. I was always afraid of him with the stairs, so I would keep the gate up. He learned how to walk before we started to practice the stairs. So he decided he could walk down them like we did....and that didn't go over very well! So a few tumbles, and hours of practice later, he is on his way to becoming a pro.
He has decided that it is neat to play on the landing between the set of stairs! He also has learned a new word "light". He loves looking at the stair light. He will sit there and say "light, light" over and over. He does take after his dad!

Jordan's Test Results

Last Friday we went to Primary Children's to have some tests done for Jordan. His pediatrician is concerned with his weight. The tests went better than I thought they would. He was more terrified and scrame the loudest as they hooked him up for the sweat chloride test, then the actual blood taking! Overall he did such a great job and was so brave.

As for the results, everything is fine!!!!!!!!!!!! Deep down we knew that everything would work out ok. I just needed peace of mind:)

My heart just goes out to everyone up at Primary's. I think the worst part for us was seeing all of the sick kids up there. I'm glad that we were blessed with a healthy little boy......we couldn't ask for anything more!

15 Month Appointment

Today was Jordan's 15 month appointment. Poor little guy was so excited to "go, go, go" when we left the house. This appointment was probably the worst when it came down to the shots. Usually he cries and doesn't like it (who could blame him), but this time it seemed worse. Poor little guy. It is so hard to watch them get their shots.

Other than that the appointment went ok. He is 18.2 pounds (looks like it will still be a while before he gets to face forward in the car!) and 30.1 inches tall. As far as the weight goes he is still underneath the growth chart and in height he is in the 25th percentile. So he is just a little guy.

The doctor does want us to go up to Primary Children's and have some tests done to make sure everything is going ok with him since he is so small. Glen and I feel good that nothing is wrong. We are still going to check into the tests just to have peace of mind. My mom keeps reminding me how small I was as a child and that her side of the family is also small. So hopefully all will go well when we get his tests done!

This year Halloween was so much fun! I know that Glen and I looked forward to it this year probably more than we have for any other year. We were so dang excited that Jordan would be able to walk around in his cute little ninja costume and trick or treat!
First of all, I am so happy I had a picture taken of him in his costume before Halloween. I had such a hard time getting a good picture of him in his costume!

Jordan and I started the day off by visiting Grandma and Grandpa at work! Up above is a picture of Jordan's first trick or treat candy from Grandma. It is mini M&M's...his favorite!

Then we headed to my old work for some more trick or treat'n! I had a great time seeing everyone and showing off my little ninja! Jordan had a great time eating the Frankenstein marshmallow! I had to practically pry it out of his hands when it was time to go!

Then we went and visited Aunt Aubry & Catrina. After that, we went and saw his uncles and auntie M. And this was all before 1:00pm.....and the day still was far from being over!

Once we got home, we of course loaded up on more sugar! We found out that Jordan loves mom's sugar cookies!

Jordan had a great time trick or treating. He even held on to his pumpkin and sword the entire time!

At first he was nervous to run up to the doors with all the other kids...but as the night progressed, he became braver and braver. Towards the end of the night he would run right up to the door, not be shy about getting candy and would also yell something that sounded like "trick or treat" with all of the other kids!

We had such a great time and so did Jordan! I was sad when it was time to go in for the night. Jordan still had a great time though handing out candy to everyone who came to our door.

The next morning, I woke up ready to go trick or treating again! I can't wait for next year!

Carving Pumpkins

We got together with my family a few days before Halloween to carve the pumpkins we had found in the pumpkin patch! We had pizza and treats...it was a lot of fun!

Mom was great. She spent the entire time carving the tops of the pumpkins and once the gook from the inside was out, she'd clean them out in the sink.

I talked Glen into doing my dirty work......sweet hubby of mine cleaned out all of the innerds for me!

This time carving Jordan was more interested in exploring and eating tootsie rolls! He did manage to find some interest in Zack's pumpkin though......it only lasted a few minutes.

Here is Jordan snooping and trying to steal my bag of flame'n hot cheetos!

I did manage to sneak in some loves during Jordan's busy adventures!

Everyone was so creative and did a great job with their pumpkins!

Randy and Megan's pumpkin!

Tyler carved out "Halloween"

Zack did a variety of different shapes.....all freehanded of course!

Wyatt made a swiss cheese pumpkin!

Madison's pumpkin had fun shapes!

All of us and our masterpieces!

What we've been up to.....

Here is a re-cap of what we have been up to the past few weeks.......

Trish and Terry's new home!!!

Once again, Jordan has made me proud, with his love for cleaning! While spending time at Trish and Terry's new home, Jordan always seems to make his way over to the cleaning supplies!

He also had a great time playing under the ladder....

and playing with his cousins in their box huts! I can't believe what a little boy he is becoming...he isn't my little baby anymore.

Here is a pic of Renner, Grandma & Jordan watching movies.

Boys will be boys! Jordan and Dad playing on Glen's works mini excavator.

Jordan Loves music and to Dance!
Jordan thinks Uncle Zack's headphones are so much fun to listen to!

Monkey See, Monkey Do....

Glen and I laughed so hard when we saw Jordan pick up Glen's inhailer, put it up to his mouth, and take a big breath in. It is amazing the little stuff that he picks up on!

Being Goofy with Cousin Renn and of course, cleaning!

While Trish and Terry have been packing, we've been watching Renn, which is great for Jordan. It has been wonderful having some for Jordan to play with. He is having a hard time sharing though. Finally Renn stood up to him, and tried to shut Jordan in the cupboard. Like any good mom, I grabbed the camera and took pictures!

Once in the cupboard, Jordan realized it was kind of fun sitting in there!

After the fun of the cupboard, Jodan decided to do some Fall cleaning. No wonder I can never find tissues when I need one:)

Jordan's first face painting

Jordan and I went with Aunti M to a work party for one of her friends moms. At the party was face painting. To be honest, I was nervous about Jordan sitting still while getting his face painted. But he was absolutely wonderful. He even sat still while I had my face painted! We got matching pumpkins!

Jordan's pumpkin!

We had a great time!

Too Cute!

Ok, so I can't remember if I've posted this picture or not, and I'm too lazy to check. It is so cute, I decided it wouldn't hurt to post it again. Here is a pic of Jordan and Glen. He is wearing his mittens for the first time. He thought it was the greatest thing in the world to get all bundled up and go outside with dad!

Jordan....my pride & joy
