January 2010

Welcome 2010!!! Hopefully this finds you and your family healthy and happy. So far this year it has been a rough go of it in the Gibson household. The holiday season was fun and fast though!

Thanksgiving we were able to travel to Indy to spend it with the family. Jordan had a great time flying for the first time.

Overall, it was a great trip and she had a great time.

Next came her first birthday!!! We had lots of friends and family over for her birthday and everyone had a great time!!! A friend of ours made Snoopy cakes for her and her Nena made a teddy bear cake. She was not all that interested in her cakes and didn't want any icing. I guess she is not going to be a sweets girl.

Then came Christmas! Nana and Grandad were here!! We were very excited that they were able to be here and for so long this time! We had really missed them this past year and they had not seen Jordan since last Christmas when she was just born. Jordan had a great time with her Grandaddy and Nana. They played and played and played. She also took her first steps on Christmas!! She has not quite just started taking off yet, but she does enjoy walking!

She got so much stuff she just didn't know what to do with it all!!!

Next came New Years! We had a lot of fun during this time and still had family in town. Towards the middle of the month though, things got a little hairy. We all have been sick at one point or another during the month of January. Unfortunately, Jordan ended up with a hospital visit for part of it. But as normal, she did it in Jordan style and was GREAT during her stay. Even though she was not feeling the greatest and was stuck to an IV pole, she did a great job while at the hospital.

Thankfully, it was nothing serious (and we know for sure because they ran every test possible and poked and proded her for a while). She is a very healthy little girl and just had a VERY NASTY viral infection. Currently, mommy is a bit of a germ-a-phobe. She is doing much better now and will start back to daycare tomorrow. Thankfully, Grandma, Grandpa, and Nena were here to help out when needed so Jonathan and I could get some sleep here and there. But we made it through and things are getting back to normal (knock, knock).

We hope that the New Year finds you health and happy and that you have a great 2010!! GO COLTS!!!
