Beatiful girl! What is she holding on to in the pictures...the squishy-looking-yellow thing? Praying!

Rebecca said...

I'd been hoping for some new pictures of your younger girl. :)

That last picture, it looks like she's "saying," "Hi, Dad!"

AWESOME is the best word! I'm amazed at all the hair and that it's blonde! All my kids had pretty much no hair at birth and if there was any it was dark. Thanks for sharing!

Bo from Florida said...

A million years could pass and I'd still want to see pictures of her. I am so attached to her life through your stories. She is just beautiful. I can't get over the blonde hair!

I aborted my baby, seeing these pictures breaks my heart. Oh my GOD the pain of that horrible decision... please forgive me, my child.

Anonymous said...

How lovely. What is really cool is that I don't think its my imagination how I can see some Mom and some Dad in her already.

Julie Nickerson said...

She is so gorgeous! Wow! And I can really tell she is starting to put on the ounces. :)
I think she looks like you!

Becky said...

So So Sweet!

Destini said...

She looks like she is changing already...Everytime I see a picture of her I sit here amazed at our God and His miracles. Your daughter is beautiful.

Adrienne said...

Nathan and Tricia, I've been following along with your blog for the past few weeks, but always felt awkward about leaving a message. However, today, having seen your beautiful daughter I had to say this - she's the image of her Dad, it's like looking at you Nathan (but more wrinkly!!)!! I've never seen a baby more like their Dad than your little daughter!
Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful story with us, and allowing us into your lives like this.

she is amazing! what a gorgeous little girl you both have!

Look at her grow! She has changed so much in these past 4 weeks. And getting to see her pretty little face...I just can't imagine that moment for you. Awesome I am sure. Keep it up girls!

mom2izzyandallen said...

Thanks for letting us "see" her. She kinda does look like you; but I think it is hard to tell at this age. Mine both started out looking like daddy but now my littlest looks just like I did at 5. We are still praying for both Tricia and this little miracle every day.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

She's precious. I love how in the one picture where you said you finally got to see her face with nothing on it she looks like she's saying "stop looking at me!" :)

She's beautiful. What a blessing.

She has chubby little cheeks!!!! What an absolute living doll. When I look at her picture all that comes to is the Steven Curtis Chapman song, "Fingerprints of God".

Jane-Jane said...

look at those cheeks!!! absolutely beautiful!

and I thought my c-pap mask was small. to see the hand at her head, the mask must be about the size of two thumbs, at most!

What beautiful pictures!!! Thanks for sharing.

I LOVE the picture where you can clearly see her face! My daughter was a preemie and she used to scrunch her eyes like that all the time. I used to tell her it would be so much easier to just OPEN them than to do all that work to keep them closed!!
She is absolutely gorgeous. Such a precious gift. What a sweet blessing!

Beautiful!

Zac and Jenny said...

She looks so sweet! I love all her hair. WOW! -Jenny

Christy said...

So perfectly beautiful! I nearly started with a, "I'm speechless.", but I know how humorous that would have been for you! >:0P Seriously, though, the pictures have gotten me all out of sorts with emotions and I've gotta go fetch a hanky. So, so beautiful. Wow. I know that you guys are just gleaming with pride, as the parents of such a precious angel.

Christy said...

Oh, I just wanted to add one more thing. That breast milk is working well, as she looks like she is filled out a little bit, especially in her face. She has the cutest lil cheeks. She is perfectly beautiful!

Absolutely beautiful! Still praying for you in CA!

Patti said...

I love the full view of her face!! She definately is the perfect combination of mommy and daddy! :)

I think she look a lot like Grandpa Lawrenson (Rick's dad).

Jessica G said...

What a beautiful little girl you and Tricia have there!!

Bre said...

Gwyneth is absolutely adorable. I love all the blonde hair!! Thank you for sharing pics of her. It's wonderful to see her cute little face without all of the tubes, etc. on it.

I'm glad Tricia got to go outside. When I had my C-section I was in the hospital for 6 days due to complications, etc. and I was so ready to get out!! I can't imagine being in there for 5 weeks without getting to go outside. I'll pray for her fever, and that she gets to hold her precious girl very very soon!!

Love and Hugs,

Oh man,
I'm losing it over here. What an absolutely precious child of God. Look at that strawberry blonde hair. Could she look MORE like the both of you????? I think not. You two are lucky parents.
Kisses to you sweet Gwyneth. And lots of prayers for both girls and you too Nate.

jaj said...

She is so beautiful! Congratulations on the CPAP! My son was on the vent for 7 weeks, so I'm so excited whenever I hear of anybody being weaned off of it earlier than that.

Anonymous said...

It JUST makes you want to be sooooo super CAREFUL to even look at her! I type gently, breath gently. Ooooh precious Gwyneth. You're doing great small one.

I'm thankful for the great medical staff, for the loving father, and for the mommy who hung in there long enough to give her a fighting chance, and for our wonderful Heavenly Father who blessed us all with this experience!

She looks a bit like you with the hair! Such sweet pictures of her little face... we don't have very many pics of my Moses without the CPAP and I wish we did... you just don't get the full effect.
She looks like she is really filling out in her face. Thanks so much for the pictures!

How precious!

Just wanted to let you know that Daniel got out of the hospital last night. He made an amazing turn around after I sent the last email to you. His mom called me with tears of joy. He has a long ways to go, but he's heading in the right direction. Thanks again for asking everyone to pray for him. I posted more pictures this evening on several of the posts.

Daniel's parents also thank you!

She is SO cute. I could go on and on. Her hair looks like it is strawberry blond. God is going to do AMAZING things with your little blessing!

Julie said...

she has such a 'mature' looking face! she is beautiful.

Candace said...

Oh, I hope she turns into a big chubby baby soon! My two daughters were both preemies, and I remember them having those waif-like arms, and longing for they day when they would be out of the hospital with thick michelin like arms. I hope little Gwyneth gets those one day.

Candace said...

Oh, I just saw some comment about her 'mature looking face'. That is common with preemies because they just don't have enough body fat to fill them out - but it will come and she will look totally different in just a few months.
