This is so sweet! Back in October 2017, 16 and Pregnant alum Lindsey Harrison gave birth to Jackson and Paisley, a set of twins born prematurely at just 29 weeks old. While Jackson has been completely healthy since leaving the NICU, Paisley has faced her fair share of terrible health battles. But now that it appears as though the miracle baby is almost completely on the mend, the mom-of-three has turned her focus to a new project: a special boutique in honor of Paisley!
"From being 16 and pregnant, to everyone around me thinking I failed in life and that my life was over, after all we went through with the twins, especially Paisley, I realized anything is possible in life," Lindsey said exclusively to In Touch. "When nobody was sure if Paisley would make it when she had a staph infection in her blood stream, she did, even when the odds were literally 1 percent chance [of survival], she did it. I realized life is way too short to not go after all your goals in life. I was determined to make this women's clothing boutique happen."
Having always been a dream of hers, Lindsey was so inspired by her young daughter that she decided now was the time to pursue it. "Paisley Ann Boutique had to be the name!" she exclaimed. "I didn't want this to be any typical shopping experience. I truly want every woman to feel beautiful, confident, and thought about while shopping at Paisley Ann Boutique." With an average price of $40, the shop is filled with the prettiest — and affordable — clothing and accessories. But will baby clothing be next? Little Paisley will have to wait a little while to fit into the pieces!
The now-eight-month-old most recently had eye surgery "to correct her left eye as the vessels stopped growing in one spot where her peripheral vision is," Lindsey previously explained to In Touch. If she hadn't undergone the surgery, they'd risk scar tissue growing over the center of her eye, resulting in blindness.
Luckily, in her latest update to In Touch, Lindsey only had good news about her littlest girl. "Paisley only has one more eye appointment with her retina specialist and she should be cleared after that, he said the surgery he did on her eye helped tremendously," she explained. "She still isn't interested in eating solids yet, only formula, which is OK. We're just praying she starts to eat them soon. Her therapy we do twice a week has helped a lot. She's been gaining a lot of strength." Before we know it, Paisley Ann will be able to shop at Paisley Ann Boutique!
