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.

Easter Weekend

Our Easter Weekend was fun filled- it was so nice out we got to go on a picnic on Friday and Saturday and BBQ on Easter Sunday.  Kayla got a lot of outside time which she absolutely LOVED!

Me, Jer and Kayla at the empty park on Friday.  It was fun! And yes- I'm super preggers for only being 20 weeks!
Grampa got to come down to the park to hang out with us so I asked him to take some family photos- these two were my favorites. Even tho I'm huge.. no getting around that! haha

Kayla LOVES bananas.. and in this pic Grampa was trying to feed K her banana but she shoves her mouth so far on that banana- it freaks everyone out.. so he was playing a game of put it in and just as quickly take it out- she had a good time.

Then that afternoon it was still beautiful out so we took Kayla's Mud Maker outside and splash around in the water in the sink.  She had a blast!! She got soaked.. totally didn't think to take her clothes off before she played in water... oops. :)

Then on Saturday we went on another picnic in a different park with our best friends and their kids.  Kayla enjoyed a PB sandwich and the swings. :) Her legs did get a little pink- my fault tho- I didn't put the SPF 50 on until we got outside... :( but it didn't seem to bother her thankfully.

After a picnic in the park, we came back to our house with our friends for some relaxation and later on a BBQ.  Kayla was hot- so I thought we could share a push-pop- as you can see this one was Cherry- and in this pic, she was yelling at me, bc I took a bite- when she wanted one!

And finally on Easter Sunday - a little chillier but still nice in the sun to go outside.. This pic was taken before Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Tim came over.. She was still pretty with no food particles on her dress.. She, however, hated the dress bc it made it hard for her to crawl.. most of the day the front part of her dress was tucked in her stockings!

Gramma and Grampa came over and brought over an Easter bucket- :) Kayla is going to Myrtle Beach in a week so the bucket was fantastic.  She got a pail, shovel, and the works for the sand.  She also got a bunch of summer outfits for MB and some sun glasses. :) Of course their was candy in the bucket as well, which was bad for mommy! In this pic, Gramma and Grampa brought over Easter donuts for Kayla... she LOVES donuts..

Easter weekend was so fun- tiring, but so fun.  We hung out with family and friends... couldn't have been better. :) Kayla enjoys being out doors and I loved that we got to spend the entire weekend outside! 

Next week- Myrtle Beach!! Can't wait! :)
