the hospital. She came into this world a fighter having emergency bowel obstruction surgery at only a few days old and a LONG NICU stay. She battled an early Staph (lung) infection in the hospital in her lungs at 2 months followed by the Roto Virus.
She fought through the first few month of her life, and gained so much strength. She started in the 3rd percentile at only 6lbs, 10 ounces and in the last few years has slowly created a steady climb up the growth chart.
Today we celebrate all the obstacles she has overcome, all the strength and courage she has shown, and all
the love we feel for our little girl. She is and always will be our little fighter. We are so proud of her!
