Entering 'Bloggerdom'

Jordan & Katelyn Schroeder with Jaycee Jordan. Welcome, we hope this attempt at 'blogging' testifies to our awesome God's provision, blessing and leading in our lives. Jesus Christ is who we owe our lives, our eternity, our forgiveness and continued grace to. It is our desire that everything in our lives, even our new blog, glorifies our Savior.

We've had this blog -although it might not have fully qualified- since it basically consisted of a layout and username, since December of last year, but, here we go- beginning our blogger journey as we let our friends and family and the greater internet public know about our lives. The convenient sharing and, -let me use the correct 'bloggese' here- the convenient posting and viewing are attractive and the ability to publish thoughts and prayer requests and other things that those who love us may want to know and can view on their own time and according to their interests, has led us to descend into bloggerdom and see what happens.

Well, to start off, I will just tell you that a lot of these posts will consist of telling you exactly what, how and when Jaycee has done anything of even the slightest interest and maybe come with corresponding pictures. What can I say? We're new parents, and she just lights up our days! I could go on about how unbiased this opinion is and how naturally everybody shares it, therefore we're doing the world a favor by minuscule updates on our little angel, but somehow, I remember others telling us that these are there own exact feelings of their little ones. So, while the temptation to slip into 'personal fable' is much greater after having been blessed with a beautiful baby, I'll refrain and simply condition all future posts with the understanding that we really believe Jaycee is the best.

Here's some pics that were taken yesterday. The big story here is that my adorable & talented little brother Timothy Quinn Thames was born a mere 19 hours after Jaycee. Yes, my mother and I were pregnant and expecting and due at the same time! Pretty much the only similarity between the two babies though, is their age- he is so big, she is so little, he is all boy, she is all girl. We take their pics every month so we can monitor their growth and the ever widening gap in their physical differences. When born she weighed, 7lb. 4oz. He was 9lb. 8oz., currently; 16lb 8oz, and approx. 24lb, respectively. oh yeah, & their good looks-thats another similarity :)

Ooo! Ooo! Since you so kindly commented on my blog let me be the first to comment on yours. You were right, I hardly ever get comments from anyone besides those three. Guess I'll take what I can get.
