Everything You Never Knew You Wanted To Know About Me

Welcome to Kayla Aimee Writes!

I’m the girl behind the blog and I know you’re probably super surprised to find out that my name is Kayla Aimee. I am very clever at naming things, obviously.

I write here (and also here and here) about faith, family and my favorite things (like DIY projects and our never ending home renovation and marathon sessions of FRIENDS.)

Also, I share really awkward photos of my childhood. You’re welcome for that.

The heart of my story centers on my journey to motherhood, the one in which I found myself joyfully pregnant after years of infertility only to then give birth unexpectedly at just 25 weeks. We named her Scarlette and she weighed one pound, eight ounces. She was thirty days old before I was allowed to hold her and it was most decidedly not what I expected when I was expecting. I didn’t expect the 156 day NICU stay or the long term quarantine at home or that my motherhood would involved learning to force down a feeding tube and copious amounts of therapy but it has been every bit worth it. After all, “of all these, the greatest is love.”

Today Scarlette is a happy, healthy, and um, precocious toddler who never fails to make us laugh with her shenanigans (check out my #stuffscarlettesays series if you need a serious laugh today!)

After our experience I am incredibly passionate about providing support for other parents of micro-preemies or babies with long term NICU stays.

My first book releases with B&H Publishing in the summer of 2015, a memoir of finding hope (and humor) in the most unexpected.

So this site of mine is a bit random as it documents whatever stage of life I happen to be in. I am so grateful for the space to share.

Thanks for stopping by, it means so much to me that you took the time to invest in our lives by reading my words. I reply in the comments section of each post so if you leave me a question there, that’s where you’ll find my answer! You can also subscribe to receive new posts by email here or subscribe to my newsletter for the (very occasional) update on book releases as well as exclusive free printables!

Here are some of my most popular (and personal favorite) posts to get you started!

    Silent tears roll down my face as I read your amazing story. I am the mama of a ray of god’s sunshine named Cullen Mathew. He came a bit early and we spent weeks in the NICU.
    You have so many great memories in an amazing format. I only wish my “pasting photos in a generic book” compared. I don’t know any moms with premature babies. Thank you for sharing your story.
