Good Moment

Hugh and I just got to sit with Tripp for a quick couple of minutes before neurologist arrived to do an EEG.

He is on the ventilator and Hugh and I were relieved to see how much more comfortable he looks.

The nurse turned off the overhead light and Tripp opened his eyes to say hello to us.


  1. Dear J,
    Hold on to those moments. They will help you stay strong for your little man when he needs you most. A moment does not go by that you aren't thought about and loved. Be strong, love. He couldn't have a better Mommy.

  2. Grab and hold those moments in you heart and head. They will help get you both through this ordeal. Still praying for Tripp with all my heart!

  3. I'm glad you had a wonderful moment with Tripp today. I hope you have another one tomorrow and every day after that. We're thinking about you, Hugh, Calder and Tripp.

  4. For you...

  5. Thanks Jordan for sharing your life with us. My heart rejoices and aches for you and Hugh all at the same time. You will be in my thoughts and prayers for sure. Be strong; I know you have it in you.

  6. Hugh,Jordan,Calder and Tripp - you are all in my prayers that Angels are watching over you too.I am here if ever you need anything.Know that you are all loved by so many. Janet S.

  7. Jordan, Kelly and I praying for Tripp. I know just how hard it can be sitting in the NICU and the hard unknown. I am here for you if you need to talk...This is Tripp's journey and we are all along for his ride...tell him that I can't wait to meet him. Love you.


  8. Tiny Angels
    Tiny Angels rest your wings
    sit with me for awhile.
    How I long to hold your hand,
    And see your tender smile.
    Tiny Angel, look at me,
    I want this image clear....
    That I will forget your precious face
    Is my biggest fear.
    Tiny Angel can you tell me,
    Why you have gone away?
    You weren't here for very long....
    Why is it, you couldn't stay?
    Tiny Angel shook his head,
    "These things I do not know....
    But I do know that you love me,
    And that I love you so".

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
