Sweet Baby Elise in Urbandale

My family welcomed this doll in September, just a few days after unexpectedly losing my aunt. In the midst of sadness, we were able to see some light when the blue eyed beauty joined our tribe. Like many experiences in life, there are constant ups and downs, sometimes very close together which can often lead to a roller coaster of emotions. We find ourselves holding on to each other for support and taking in as much of the good as we can, when we can. 

Elise is the daughter of my cousin, Lindsey, and her husband Adam. I was first able meet her the day after she arrived home from the hospital and was then reunited with her while we were in Iowa over Christmas. Seeing her at 3 days old and then again at 3 months old was another reminder of how quickly these little ones change in such a short period of time and how important each milestone is.
