Asher's room is just about complete, finally! I'm still working on a shadow box of all our NICU keepsakes like blood pressure cuffs, c-pap head gear, leads, tiny diapers, mom and dad name tags...lots of little things that were our "norm" for 5 months! I think I'm going to need a bigger shadow box after I gathered up all we had. The desk and chest of drawers were my bedroom furniture growing up, and before that they were my mom's furniture! We will add the glider we got to his room once he is staying in his crib. It was fun to work on his room in the midst of our long nicu stay. Some days it was a fun escape, and others I avoided it because it made me sad because I wondered when he'd really be here and be using all these things we had for him. It's so fun to have him here! Exhausting some days...but fun and a huge blessing. I still can't believe I walk around my house with a baby and walk into my room and he's there sleeping. Just incredible there's this little person with us God created in me. Since I wasn't pregnant very long, I have to remind myself sometimes I actually carried him and he didn't just come from the NICU!

We are so thankful for this beautiful crib from Bryan's parents!
