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.

FALL Into Love

I guess we are still in a little eating slump.. she won't take more than 5, and that is a surprise.  She mostly eats 4 oz.  She does however eat her whole jar of stage two foods.  Near the end she gets a little fussy- and mostly on JUST the last bite she purses her lips at me... but um, Kayla, I can't stop with ONE bite left... :) haha So she gets that bite whether she wants it or not!  She eats breakfast and a dinner, so two 4 oz jars and I'm ok with this :)

She is getting the RSV shots- 6 of them, at $30 bucks a shot- Not bad considering the shot without insurance.  We hope to start that very soon- just waiting for a call from our ped's to say come and get it.

K loves her Let's Move Baby Einstein DVD- there is a cute video of her watching it- yes I like to catch K at every moment I can on camera or video. :) I think it will be neat when she is older and can see all of this too.  And in the background you can hear the tv say Stand up Tall- and a few seconds later, K does.. lol yes she is in her walker- and there is a pillow underneath so she can touch the ground.. but she does :)

We did a fall photo shoot on Columbus day- we went to Nina and Papa's as they have nice big trees that shed a lot of leaves.  K LOVED it.. there was so much for her to look at. :)
Fall into love.. <3
