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.

Sick of Winter

I'm sick of the cold weather.. sick of the snow and sick of wearing a winter coat that barely fits me bc of my big ol belly!! I think K is sick of being cooped up inside too-
let me out ma!

Kayla is 11 months and a half now.. so close to a year!  It seems like just yesterday I brought her home from the NICU and said I can't wait till she is a year old! haha it's finally here! She will not have a party- maybe we will make our annual family bbq in the summer be partial bday party too.  And of course there will be no SNOW in the summer- so it will be warm temps and fun to be had by all! But for K's bday I have already ordered her gifts and a bday outfit- problem is I don't know if it'll match.. haha hoping it does!! I have some what decided on making heart shaped cupcakes for her bday but not sure.. any ideas? I love to make desserts... and be creative- but I am not Patty - her turtle cake was amazing! 

Anyway- here are some cute pics.. this post was just to complain about the winter.. it's wearing on me! and K too! 

Happy Valentine's Day!
Playing with DaKota .. she loves her! 



knows where her toy box is.. squatting down to see which she would like to play with! haha
just got done drinking a bottle all by herself!
eating toast with butter!
Kayla, for the first time, got to play with other kids.  Jer and I have been real, over-protective with this winter, and decided since our best friends and their kids were all healthy, that having them come over Friday night was ok.  K LOVED it! :)

and finally- mommy and kayla! :)

Video of K playing peek-a-boo... she just learned how to do it and she does it so fast sometimes it's so cute! :) haha When she first learned how to do it last night, she got so excited she could hardly keep her hands up at her eyes to play- she would throw them down and do a little excited dance! It was so funny!!
