Dec 10, 2011 -Since we have to be in here for the holidays, we decided to make Jacob's room a little festive. And although we would rather believe we will be going home sooner than later, especially before Christmas, Jacob loves to look at sparkly lights so we have an extra excuse to make his room look more "Christmasy". We strung battery powered lights around his crib and when he has to go for a test, we feel like we are part of a float in a parade. The nurses love to come into his room and take in the warm holiday cheer. They all say they've never seen a crib decorated with lights before and we are so surprised. If I could afford it, I would buy these battery powered lights for all of the children's cribs/beds. It makes me sad to think they rooms don't look like Christmas. We have also strung candy cane lights across the top of his white board and put gel window clings in his huge picture window. We did not get a tree because we could not find one small enough. Secretly in my heart I have been really holding out on the tree idea because I am determined to be at home with our real tree on Christmas!
