    It is just awesome how miraculous the Lord is. He just keeps on blessing us over and over again. God id good with all His glory.

    How fitting that a young prince like Valor shall come home to dwell in so formidable and spectacular a palace. Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain! Labor on in His strength, dear ones. Well done.

    The room is really coming along! (And so is baby Valor) I guess since you’ve been working so hard I can forgive you for keeping us waiting so long for a new post. 😉

    The name Valor and his nursery theme are so inspired.

    The bumper pad is beautiful but I just wanted to share with you the some recommendations from The American Academy of Pediatrics ( and the American SIDS Institute (

    Remove pillows, pillow-like bumper pads, quilts, comforters, sheepskins, stuffed toys, and other soft products from the crib. – AAOP

    Place infants to sleep in a baby bed with a firm mattress. There should be nothing in the bed but the baby – no covers, no pillows, no bumper pads, no positioning devices and no toys. Soft mattresses and heavy covering are associated with the risk for SIDS. – ASI

    Many prayers for a safe, happy and healthy labor and delivery!!!

    Looking great- and terrific job on the cribskirt- talk about bravery! One question- where are you going to put the castle? You must be having a blast putting this all together- it’s a lot of fun to see!

    I was randomly sent here to see your nursery set, then got caught up in reading your family story. I just want to know that reading your story has blessed me so immensely. I love seeing how God works through all things to bring glory to Himself. I will subscribe to your newsfeed, because even though I don’t know you, it blesses my heart to see God bless others!

    I lost my first child when I was 40 weeks pregnant to a cord accident. In a following pregnancy I eventually had to turn HIS room into her room…it was one of the toughest, yet most healing, things in my grief process. I had to work hard to make it very very different (gender helped) but even rearranging furniture happened to ensure she had a space of her own. I still remember the room I so lovingly prepared for him and am happy to know he had a space in our home, even if never lived in that room. Your new room is going to be amazing.

    I can’t seem to find an email address for you but I saw this in a random catalog I got in the mail…I knew exactly who I should tell about it.

    Soooooo Cute. I know Valor is still too young to enjoy but you can always start his castle collection now.

    Enjoy! 😉

    Hello again, don’t know if you are reading the comments on this post anymore, but I was just wondering where you found the solid green crib bumper, I’m having a bit of trouble finding plain bumpers in solid colors!
    Thanks Rena
