Toddler amputee, Kayden Kinckle shows the true meaning of confidence. The 2-year-old had his right foot and left leg amputated due to the medical condition, Omphalocele.

Omphalocele is a kind of abdominal wall defect that causes the intestines, liver, bladder and sometimes other organs to develop on the outside of the body. Doctors told Nikki, Kayden’s mom, that he wouldn’t survive the pregnancy. But Kayden defied the odds and continues to show his strength and spirit.

Whatch Kayden defy the odds again in this video. The cuteness really flows around 1:03.
