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.

The End of Summer - :(

Summer has come and gone- :( I can't believe that summer is OVER!! I have to go back to work soon- and no offense to the ladies I work with (cause you know I love ya) but I hate my job! I miss being the teacher of the classroom- the TA is just not the same thing. If I didn't have such good insurance- I would quit- but we need it for little miss Kayla.
Speaking of Kayla- she is great... moody, frustrating, happy, talkative and learning new things everyday! Soon she will be 6months.. yikes! I am scared of the upcoming cold/flu season tho- especially working in a school!! I'm thinking about going back on pre-natal vitamins just for a good health boost!
Anyway- here she is- learning! :) She appears to be sitting quite nicely- but it's only for a few short seconds and then she tips! haha - she is getting the hang of it tho!!
Her first time in the pool- yes she is wearing a sweater- I didn't have a bathing suit or a t-shirt to cover her scar so this is what I had in the diaper bag- a sweater- it's been a real crappy summer.. haha we had one week of nice weather so we jumped in the pool! :) She loved it!!
I finally got to go out- Danielle, Jenn and Mary- we took D out after a pretty sucky summer for her and it was a good time had by all! The two ladies on the outside are two of the teacher's I TA for- they aren't offended that I hate my job! haha

Kayla is so cute! I can't believe she will be 6 months. Nayeli will be 10 months this Saturday. I know what you mean about going back to work. I go back in three weeks. I have been crying alot. I wish I could quit my job too. We have been told this cold/flu is going to be bad. I am hoping and praying a healthy winter. The prenatals shoud help, I also take a vitamin C drink and wash my hands before I touch Nayeli or any of her things.
