Our baby girl has made her debut! Emerson Renee was born on May 17th at 7:53 pm. She was 6 weeks early and weighed 5 lbs and 7 oz and was 18.5 inches long. She is doing well and is breathing all on her own. Our was baby girl was born with an incredibly rare skin disorder though. She basically looks like she has a really bad sunburn which will cause her skin to peel and then reveal her "real" skin underneath. There is a 10% chance that she has perfect skin underneath or it could range from just dry skin to a pretty severe skin issue. We are praying our little miracle is a part of that 10%. She will probably be in the NICU for at least a few weeks while we get her skin situation figured out. Our girl is putting up quite the fight and proving everyone wrong on a daily basis by healing so quickly! Please pray for our sweet baby and specifically for her to have healthy skin and strength to get through the next few weeks.
My name is Kendall; I'm a wife, stay at home mommy, Advocare enthusiast, and I'm slowly learning to love exercise. I’m married to the man of dreams and best friend, Jeremy. I don't know what I would do without him, he's the best daddy and husband I could have ever imagined. We welcomed our first baby, Emerson, to the world in May 2012. She was born prematurely with a genetic skin disorder called Ichthyosis. That word is a big part of our lives, but it doesn't define her or us! She is doing wonderful and amazes us daily. We also have a sweet boxer named Beckett who keeps things interesting! I love spending my days with my girl, learning to live a healthy life, and being with family and friends!
