Ethan’s Newborn Shadow Box..Consider Keeping NICU mementos!

If your baby starts out in nicu, you may not think you want anything to remind you of that time. my suggestion is keep mementos anyways then decide later! I'm proud of all Ethan has come through, so I chose to put his ear buds from the medical helicopter flight to commemorate this.

Did Ethan’s newborn shadow box today! I may or may not add a picture of him in his homecoming outfit..or a tiny one from NICU. Feel like its pretyy full already, we will see!

I bought the shadow box from Hobby Lobby regular price, around $40. It has burlap backing and has a magnetic door that just opens if you need to add something. Also, I used floral (or “corsage” pins from Michael’s) to pin the items to the burlap.
