Those are awesome photos. So precious!

Lisa said...

What wonderful pictures! What an amazing, wonderful, blessed family. Reading your blog makes me smile (and sometimes brings me to tears) and always helps me to remember that God does hear and answer prayers in His own time and in His own way. I continue to be touched and uplifted as I read your story. Thank you for sharing.

Melody said...

These pictures are absolutely beautiful! I love the smiles for Mommy and Daddy! So sweet.

Sara said...

that first photo reminds me of when I was little & use to sing madonna songs & strike poses whilst dancing around the house.

congrats on the interview, amazing how you had all lost touch & through this blog found each other again!

It occurred to me, in that first photo. Sweet little Gwyneth may have had the thought cross her mind:

Oh no......Nathan is really my Dad?

just kidding, how truely blessed you all three are.

Continued prayers for improvements and health.

Julie said...

Just when you think there can't be a more precious picture....

I was noticing that Gwyneth appears to be looking at each person in her line of vision - what a wonderful thing! My favorite has got to be her smiling at Tricia - she's looking at her with a look that says "Thanks Mommy, for letting God do His will!"

Christy H said...

Precious pics. Gwyneth is already a ham!! Family time is the BEST!!!

TruePraise said...

wonderful!

Irene said...

Nate, These are the best pictures! I love every one of them, but my #1 favorite is the second one with Tricia and Gwyneth. Tricia looks beautiful and looks like she is taking in every detail of Gwyneth's little face so she can remember it during those long hours they can't be together. It is absolutely beautiful! And of course I love the first one, with the little hands up at her face. It would be fun to put captions of what she may be thinking :-D
Bless you all, and thanks for sharing with us,
Irene

Rachael said...

Raving Mom said...

How incredibly beautiful! Gwyneth is getting SO big! She is just gorgeous!
I'm so glad Tricia is getting to spend time with the baby...and so happy for all of you.
Continuing to pray and hope for all the best for your family.

Stephanie M. said...

What a beautiful family!

OBX Rox said...

Oh, she is so smart! Look at her!!! She loves being with both of you! Can't wait to get a hold of her myself. I know I'll be standing in a loooong line but I'm up for it! Happy second birthday, sweet Gwyneth.

Come home soon, y'all! We love you!

marcia said...

I love the "family portrait" too! And the "looking at Mommy and Daddy" shots are absolutely adorable. She is just so alert, and appears to be looking right at you. Such very special times for the three of you. So happy that Tricia can finally participate in the visits!!!!!

americaneagle517 said...

AlaneM said...

I forgot to tell you yesterday that the video of Tricia & Gwenneth made me cry yesterday. What a beautiful moment, thank you for sharing it with us.
Always praying,
Alane

Heather said...

What a sweet little peanut! We are praising God for His marvelous works!

K. Lang said...

Hopefully it's a happy encouragement for you to read again: These pictures are wonderful.
Even if it might not be a really willingly triggered smile, I'm reminded of these charts you often see at the pediatrician of smilies from very happy to painfully crying to determine if or how much a child is in pain. These smiles look to me that Gwyneth is expressing that she's feeling comfortable and quite good.

My Goodness said...

It is such an honor to 'witness' such special family moments.

It is so awesome to see you all together...and those smiles!!

God Bless!

Christy said...

Awesome pictures. She looks a little like Tricia in some of those. She has a beautiful little smile!!! >:0)

Thodgson said...

Beautiful! Roxanne, I will happily keep you company in that line!!

Carmen said...

Love the pictures, Gwyneth is so sweet posing and smiling. I'm so glad that Tricia is finally getting to spend some time with her baby, love the family picture.

Hilary said...

Amy said...

amangoprincess said...

just beautiful!! Gwyn looks sooo much more alert and awake these days! Love when her eyes are open! They look brown like mommy's, no? When will they try her with a bottle? She looks like she wants to suck or eat her fingers in those pics! Btw, she has beautiful slender fingers ..maybe she will play piano one day! hehe.. She certainly has come a long way, and I hope she continues on her speedy growth process so that she can go home with you SOON!!

Jen said...

amanda said...

It's actually awesome to me to see such Big smiles from such a tiny little baby, who has grown so much!

In one of the pics taken of the 3 of you it looks to me that she was responding to the picture taker wanting her to look at the camera-That's the best pic on this blog to me! and her smiling at you-mommy/daddy are 2nd, and 3rd respectively!

Her personality is literally bigger than she is-she's just precious!

Beautiful family the 3 of you are.

Continued prayers for you all.

Sonia said...

Beautiful pictures!! You all make a wonderful family. So nice seeing a family picture of the 3 of you. Still praying.
