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.

Thankful November 21

21.  I am thankful for K's dance teacher.  She teaches several classes..several different ages but a dance class for 2 year olds- ha she's nuts!! haha :) She is really good with them though.. and today for the first time, I saw K do something w/o me right next to her to guide her through. Yes she is two years old and isn't really all that independent.. :-/ but I'm working on it. Anyway- today K's dance teacher wanted to conduct the class w/o the mom's helping.. and K did AMAZING! I had to hold back tears- it was my first glimpse at K of being truly independent.  She looked back at me every now and then, I'd give her the thumbs up with my goofy looking proud smile.. and she'd go back to paying attention.  She was so cute! Ugh I was so proud of her tonight.. crazy I know- but I had that moment bc of her dance teacher..! :)

my shining star <3 who absolutely LOVES her dance class :)
