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.

Wedding Fun and Cold Downer

Ok- so I've got a full blown cold- no voice and a horrible awful cough!  Luckily I went to a wedding this weekend so I was away from Kayla ... this is good because my awful cold was not around her, but she was already exposed to my germs before I left... however, now that we are home, she is not! :( Grandma and Grandpa took her until I am not so sick. Jerry and I may be going overboard here, but really- she has a lot of lung growing to do and she is only 6 months.. I don't think she is ready for a cold yet. When we did get home, I did hug her- :( I had to!! She was sooo excited to see me and Jer.. I couldn't not hug her.. selfish yes.. :( Thanks to you who left a comment about how to prepare for it though.. I'm thinking since she was already exposed she will get something- let's just hope it's not what I got, bc it's hard for me to breathe- I couldn't imagine what it will be like for her! :(  So I am missing my girl like CRAZY!! I hope she doesn't forget who I am :(

The wedding however was a BLAST!! Congrats to my cousin Brian and his new beautiful bride- Kellie.  I am a fan of weddings! They are my favorite thing to go to!! I love the wedding ceremony, and the fun and fabulous reception afterwards! :) And for those of you who like a drink or three like me, it was an open bar all night! Nice choice Brian and Kellie!! :) They also had a photo booth at the reception for their guestbook.. it was soo fun.  You get your pics taken in the photo booth and choose a picture or three to put in their album and leave a note with it.  I went in the booth a trillion times!! haha And I know a lot of you, my family, know that I had a lot of fun!  That was probably - yes, it was the last time I will see everyone for a very long time... as winter lockdown will start this coming tuesday- well once I get better anyway. We didn't start this winter off very well with me getting sick right off!! Jeez Louise!! So here are some fabulous pics I put into scrapblog!! :)
