This little warrior was born at 28 weeks and 5 days, but mom, Crystal, was put on bed rest at 20 weeks. Crystal was relocated to Edmonton on October 11th and has been here ever since. Now, for those of you who have had babies, bed rest may sound like a vacation, but Elise’s family lives in Grand Prairie and she has three siblings who live at home. Not really an ideal situation.
Fortunately, when I got to spend time with Elise, her sibling, Elijah, Ethan, and Aana, as well as her parents were all able to be there. I had first met Elise’s family at the Light the House event at Ronald McDonald House, where Aana’s interest in my camera and her Elijah’s amazing shirt caught my attention!
According to Crystal, Elise is still working on breathing and growing. Hopefully, time with family over Christmas and New Year’s helped this fiesty little girl grow.
Elise, keep growing and we wish you and your family all the best in 2019!
