Putting together Cal's nursery was one of the things I was most excited about and eager to get started on when I found out I was pregnant with him. I wanted his room to be boy-ish but not too baby-ish to make it easier to transition as he grows and gets older. I love how it came together. It's my favorite room in the house!
I got almost everything from Target! One of my favorite things is this dresser/changing table that looks to me like it could be from Restoration Hardware. Such a great price and really good quality!
Scroll to the end of this post for all the linked details from Cal's nursery as well as the latest update on him.

I'm so excited to get Cal home and show him his room!
The number one question I get is, "When do they think you'll be able to bring him home?" I SO wish I had the answer to that question, but it's so hard to say. One thing we've learned from Cal being in the NICU is that it's just a huge waiting game and requires a lot of patience and faith.
We've gone through ups and downs during the last four weeks in the NICU, and we've learned that we just need to trust Cal's doctors and give him the time he needs to get better. We learned the hard way that we just need to take things slow with him and not push him too hard.
Right now Cal is still getting respiratory support. They have slowly started to wean him off a machine called NIPPV. Once he's on a low enough flow of oxygen we are hoping we'll be able to start feeding him again. Right now he's getting my breastmilk through his feeding tube (so sad thinking about him having a constant tube down his throat and not being able to taste or eat anything orally!).
So at this point we will just continue to pray and have have faith that he will continue to get stronger and better. Thank you again for all of the kind words, thoughts and prayers for our family, and especially for Cal. Each time we pray for him we also thank God for all the wonderful people we have supporting and praying for us. I will update again soon!
