Emerson Renee

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.




Loves!
