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.

Olmstead BBQ

I was experimenting with taking color out of pictures.. and I thought well the usual pics you see that are black and white with a touch of one color are the pics where the kid is sooo darn cute and adorable. So I chose the pics of Kayla that truly portrayed her grumpiness on the 18th. Yes she is wearing two outfits with two different bows bc I was not sure how I wanted to dress her for our annual Olmstead BBQ- so I tested them both. :) So now I bet you're wondering why she is so grumpy. No it's not bc I changed her 20 times.. haha it's bc she is teeting!! OMG does that ever SUCK!! The baby orajel does work tho!! Phew!!

The D'Angelo's did make it out to your Olmstead party! Yay! :) So we finally got a pic of all six of us. Just imagine what is going on inside each of their minds... hmm
Vince: OMG is that baby really crying again??
Patty: Thank god Charlie is a good boy!!
Charlie: She's crying Mom.. make her stop!
Kayla: Owwwwwwwwww
Kate: hahaha omg, she's crying again!! yay!
Jerry: Is this almost done cause I want another sandwich!!
Overall our BBQ went pretty well... I always hate having big parties bc I never know how to get around to chat with everyone!! But it is nice to see everyone.. :) Kayla had a very rough day from the very beginning. She apparently has started teething.. and she didn't get orajel until right before the party which started at 3. I wasn't sure if it was teething, a tummy ache or something else. So I talked to the pharmacist and he told me tylenol bc motrine might make her tummy hurt worse, and told me talk to my ped. before using baby orajel.. but said it worked real well with his daugther. So I decided I wasn't waiting till Monday to find out if she could have some baby orajel. Then I found out that my ped is off all of next week.. and Kayla is not eating so well. I have read that teething can cause loss of appetite.. but they say contact the ped. if persists more than one day... my ped is off.. what do I do now?!
Anyway- we were glad the D'Angelos, Basfords, Grays, Websters, Loceys, Olmsteads, Martins, Warrens, Hurleys, Mr. Thompson, Hetus, Youngs, Geddes (Jacob :)) and the Mousaws all came out for a while. :) It was nice to see everyone !! :)
