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!

Lilypie Fourth Birthday tickers

Look at Me- I'm 3mo. old! :)

Another fantastic visit with our friends the D'Angelos... Charlie and
Kayla sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g :) OMG the worst- Jerry was holding her- he almost cried.. first time she ever cries with her eyes open and it was when Jerry was forced to torture her. He felt awful! The second they took her out of this awful contraption they handed her to me, and as soon as they got that led jacket off Jerry he came over and demanded he hold Kayla- so she wouldn't think he was a monster.
After a bath- She spit out her binky right as I took the picture.
Being a big girl in her Bumbo chair- She can stand it for a couple minutes as long as someone is sitting right in front of her...
She loves her jumper but only for like 10 min... if that. She needed a step stool because she is not tall enough yet- but everytime she kicks her legs the jumper plays music. She loves it.
Her appt in Syracuse went well. The Dr. said she sounded good, and her x-ray looked good. He even let us come back to the office to look at the x-ray. She now weighs 11lb 14oz.. a day before she was 3mo. old, which is today! :) She was super this morning tho- I think her trip messed her schedule up and she was very tired. She slept all night long, which she normally does, and then took a 2.5 hr nap at grandma's after she ate.
She is doing very well with eating... she now takes 5oz more often than not.. but of course that can change at any moment. She had a great visit with Charlie and his parents... She loves the car- not the car seat- but the MOVING car. :) She'll go hysterical until the car starts moving. She is doing much better at tummy time- lifts her head pretty high and for a longer period of time and more often.
Love and prayers to all- Don't forget July 15!!! :)
