We have a baby!

Obviously, I'm not just realizing we have a baby. Jordan has been in this world with us for 228 days, aka 7 months, 2 weeks. I can hardly believe it has only been that long, yet I can hardly believe it's already been that long! 

Here's a post I began a couple weeks after Jordan was born:

Life sure has changed. Baby "junk" clutters our house, cloth diapers need washed and hung to dry, a majority of the house doesn't sleep through the night, burp cloths grace the arms of the couch and everyone's happier when pacifiers evade their hiding spaces. Baby cries, grunts & coos fill the house and a tiny little boy steals my heart again with each sound (and each outfit change! ;)).
Our son Jordan made his entrance into this world two and a half weeks ago. In that very short amount of time, a lot of different emotions have been felt and each day brings new adventures that we never could have imagined! The first thing I have to say is that people were right, babies cause lack of good, sound sleep. They also cry, poop, and pee a lot. I have spent some time in tears over lack of sleep and over struggles breastfeeding. Those things, though, are not what actually comes to mind first as I think back through the days since June 18... What comes to mind first is the absolutely astounding amounts of love and joy that Josh and I are experiencing in an entirely new way. Josh and I love each other a lot, but we have both decided that somehow we love each other even more now! Life is a lot different, but it's definitely better!
I certainly still agree that life is better with Jordan. We can hardly remember what we did with our time without him. Or who/what was on our mind.
We've had quite a few difficulties that we, of course, did not anticipate, which have tested us in many ways. Through it all, though, we have learned a lot more about faith and trust in Jesus. I, myself, have had multiple encounters of feeling much closer to my Savior than ever before. How amazing is our God, and how amazing that he could give His Son. I cannot fathom. More on this later, I think!
I've wanted to include some updates for awhile now, but just haven't gotten to it. But now, finally, I am taking some time to do so, especially because I enjoy it! So, get ready to read some posts! :o)
