CDH Awareness Day

March 31st is Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) Awareness Day. In honor of Jacob's story, and all the families affected by CDH every day, we hosted a Bar-B-Que at our house. We asked our guests to bring blankets or preemie/newborn outfits for the NICU at Vanderbilt. It was a great success, and we had a wonderful time showing off our little miracle! :)

Thank you to all the people that came and donated. It was a special night for us!

Here's some pictures from the day. I don't have ANY during the party because I was too busy talking to people and getting food ready. Sorry! :)

The front yard...all set up!

The Centerpieces and just underneath you can see the labels I made with facts about CDH. I had them stuck to the tables around the centerpieces. Hope they read them! :)

The Boston Butt pork getting ready for the oven...

The cupcakes made by my friend Brooke/IceThis cakes.
And last, but not least, here's Jacob enjoying laughing at something that Jackson was doing. :) What a silly boy!
P.S. Our sleep study was moved to THIS FRIDAY night. So, pray it goes well!
