Kayla Mae Olmstead

Kayla was born with Left-sided Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (LCDH). When she was born she was in the NICU for a total of 55 days. She reherniated two years later, had her repair surgery in May 2011 and spent 11 days in hospital recovering. She is a tough little girl and we are truly blessed to have her here.

I'm Growing, I'm Growing!

Cutie Patootie!

Oh the many faces of you- I love this little girl!! :) I just wanted to share my favorite pics of her - these are even the pics that the hospital took the day we were discharged.. of course Jerry and I had to order the pics!! I always said- no way would I order the pics that the hospital takes- cause I can get the same pic- but I didn't go home with a newborn and she makes so many faces.... so we ordered the CD- expensive but so worth it! :)
She is doing great- we are kinda at a stand still with 4oz.. once, today actually, she took 5oz...I just can't get her over this bump... but she eats great- knows the diffence between the pacifier and her bottle- even tho we have the soothie pacifiers and bottle nipples... that is how we really test to see if she is hungry... we will give her her binky first and if she takes it and gets mad 5 seconds later, and spits it out- and she does this two times in a row- then we know she is hungry! :) She does spit quite often- not a lot most times, and not even every feed- just makes me nervous-
I start work on Thursday! YIKES!! I want to go back bc I miss the ppl I work with, but I don't want to go back bc I work with Kindergartners and 1st graders- and they are germy- so I'm very nervous- I will shower as soon as I get home and change my clothes then go pick up my little girl from Nina and Papa's house... hopefully that is enough.
My prayers go out to everyone!

I can not get over how much she looks like Jerry! Bridgette was only drinking 4 oz every feeding til she hit 4 months. I have been told that they should drink about an oz for every month the are. Hope everything else is going well!
