Fraggle Rock-a-Bye Baby

It's very important that you watch this video before reading the rest of this post...



I always wanted a Fraggle...



We've received lots of fun baby stuff, but this one hat has got to be my favorite so far.

What a cutie pie! One day when she's older and looks at this picture she's going to crack up!

littlemis said...

That's awesome. My granddaughter used to watch FraggleRock all the time. What a great hat on an even greater baby. I'm sooo happy you are having fun with her.

Alyce said...

That's hilarious! Fraggle Rock used to be one of my favorites. Thanks for the smiles!

Bobbi said...

This just really had me laughing...now you have your very own fraggle...& shes really much cuter than any of the fraggle family could ever be lol...Gwyneth is really cute with that hat on!!!

Terry Gray Sr. said...

Nate I am so pleased that your girls are improving. Great pics, I can see that the litle one is changing in her facial features. How cool is that? She looks as if she is so content. That is a good thing.

Continued prayers for improvement and good health.

dynamitt said...

oh fraggles are my favorite. I still watch clips on you tube when I'm bored... nice picture of your girl.

Thoughts and Things said...

Lol, ah, having fun at your kid's expense! Yay! She is adorable, I defy anyone to find a hat that doesn't just add to her adorableness!

Sara said...

I hope one day I'll be as lucky as you & Tricia to have a fraggle rock baby!!! Wonderful photos, thanks for sharing :)

Sara said...

Hahahaha! Love the hat! Gwyneth makes a good Fraggle!

~Sara in MD

marcia said...

I'm laughing so hard I can hardly type! That poor, dear, sweet child simply has NO idea of the kind of life she is about to experience!!! :):):):) I can see her, in about 13 years, looking at that picture and rolling her eyes and saying something like, "Dad, I can't believe you did that to me!!!"

Alycia said...

I love it!!! She is absolutely adorable and my children and I loved watching the Fraggle Rock video! We pray for your family every night before bed. What a blessing to be having so much fun with her!!!

Sami said...

that made my morning..gave me a good laugh..she is absolutely adorable!!

CJolly said...

HA!! That's too good!

Amy said...

Sweet!

Melony said...

That is FUNNY!! She is cute no matter what she is wearing..

Scott said...

Someday when you are showing this picture to Gwyneth's boyfriend she is not going to like you very much!!! Thanks for all the pics, articles, etc. We are thrilled things are progressing well. We will continue to pray for each of you daily.

Kelley said...

Fabulous hat!!! One day Gwyneth will laugh a lot at that picture (or roll her eyes and say, "Oh Daddy!") I love your sense of humor! (And the day when you WILL be buying her a mac is probably going to come sooner that you ever dreamed...)

Kristina said...

Gwyneth is adorable, fraggle-like in the best way possible. I actually think she looks rather stylish. She must be the most stylish baby in the NICU.

Karen said...

I hear a lot of DaaaAA- aaAAd with accompanying ^^eyeroll^^in your future. YAY!

Catherine said...

LOL! Just about the cuttest Fraggle EVER!!!

Catherine said...

Oops...typo...cutest!!

Missy said...

beachbug said...

She has got to be the coolest baby on the planet today. How many have Fraggle heads? Fantastic!

beth robertson said...

You need to send this to a tv station. Maybe they will start a reality Fraggle rock...hahaeheheh! Just kidding:)
She looks beyond cute!! Just like mom pretty in pink.
love, beth

Auntie Ronnie said...

The pictures are to cute. Fraggle Rock was one of my children favorite shows. Love the hat!

Heather Nicole said...

Destini said...

I love the fraggles! How cute is that hat!

Tammy C said...

That is way too cool!!

charismasmom said...

LOL!!!! You can pull that one out when her Fiance comes a calling! =)

Julie said...

I always loved Fraggle Rock...

What a cool hat! Whoever made that for you should seriously go into business. Gwyneth would make the perfect model, too!!

Lizze said...

I love it! I never wanted a Fraggle but I have to agree, that hat is AWESOME! Although it could be that Gwyneth makes the hat look that good. ;)

Brian & Amy England said...

That made me laugh out loud!! How precious!! Just too much fun!
I loved Fraggle Rock as a kid!!
Hope you all have a very special Friday!
Continued prayers!

candidchatter said...

I totally watched the video before scrolling down and then I cracked the heck up. That is completely adorable and I think I want one too. Uh, well, not for my daughter actually though. I want one for ME!!

Have a wonderful Friday Nate, Tricia, and Gwyneth! We are so happy to read of all the good news and even though we celebrate each victory with you, we do not forget our prayers (and praises) for you too.

Much Love,
Heidi and family

Debra said...

That Fraggle Rock video brought back memories. She looks like one of the club! Aspiemom

♥PugPosse♥ said...

Ha! That is hilarious! I remember my Fragle Rock days. Thanks for the smile!

Sheryl said...

Gwyneth is so adorable.. I know it sure feels to hold that precious lamb of God.. May Gods Blessings continue in your life and your girls life

Anna Marie said...

That is the funniest thing I have ever seen. You two are maintaining such a good sense of humor throughout a very stressful time. And Nate, the lengths you go to to entertain your vast public are admirable and appreciated. Thanks for the laughs!

theragan3 said...

that poor girl has no idea what is in store for her if this is what you do to her just 2 months in to her life!! We found bunny ears around Easter the year after my son was born and I have a pic of him with the ears and a look on his face that said "what the heck mom??!!" He'll hate me later for it but oh well.. that is what parents are for. I remember a certain bathroom pic of me when I was about 4...
Gee thanks mom!

Amy said...

That's hysterical. She's going to hate that pic one day. I think it's too cute.
Amy

Sharon S. said...

Melissa Dovel said...

One thing about the silly pics- cause I now have a daughter who can give input on all the fun I had with the camera with her as a baby and I DID! Even the most embarrasing ones speaks your love for them. They may not want to show them all off to the boyfrieds- but she thinks its funny and cute to see pics of her nakey rear running through the house! Keep on shootin' U all will love it *promise* and yes she is so adorable its not even funny! Much to be proud of perfect package!

Candy said...

What a doll! Absolutely adorable and totally Fraggle Rock.

kristin said...

Too cute. Make sure you keep all the small hat and clothes. You will be amazed a year from now how much Gwyneth has grown. Don't worry about her weight. Grace is 15 months and just hit 14 lbs! You are always in our prayers.

I call this hat her " Philly -Mummur " look. Little # 9 is soooo cute! I can hardly stand it.

JOHNNY G and MAISY C said...

I'm so completely honored. I started crying when I read this post and saw my hat. She looks even more beautiful than I thought she would. And I'm so glad you like it. Now I can begin working on the next size! Thank you so much for sharing her with us!

KimberlyL said...

What a cute bug in a rug! By the way, Nate, have you and Tricia figured out yet that you will have an absolute "force of nature" on your hands when she's 2/3 and 13-16??? Nobody has this much fight in them to live, and then doesn't show their strength of character in the toddlers and teens. Heaven help you :o)~

Kim said...

Too cute! Ah, the fraggles! She'll love that picture someday, too!

debbale said...

I Love the Fraggles! But I must confess she is the cutest Fraggle I have ever seen

If possible she is getting more precious each day. And I love the hat!

Mandi said...

What a precious family. I have been reading your blog for about a month now (after being linked here from another blog) and I have gone back and read all the prior posts. Thanks for always being honest and forthright in your blogs. Love the little fraggle!

twokiss77 said...

haha! She makes a perfect little Fraggle! :-) She may look back on this with resentment one day when she is older... haha!

inchristalone said...

are you renewing your vows

Harris Boys said...

Awesome! I LOVED fraggle rock growing up. great show!

Cheryl said...

Dear Nate,
You are the most patient person ever. You always answer my questions even though they are the dumbest ones. Have you ever considered becoming a middle school teacher? You would be great and a wonderful role model too!!!!
I am so happy that Gwyneth is gaining weight. Personally, I don't like that hat on her. I think a cute little bunny hat or a tiara would suit her better and not tickle her eyes. Oh wait! Tricia deserves the tiara. I am happy that she is walking so far and feeling better. Thank you again for always being so kind and patient. I adored the Jockey's Ridge post. That's one of my favorite places. You will have to buy Gwyneth a kite to fly there when she is 3.

Kelly said...

Now that is funny! She's a cutie! Still praying for you from Atlata! :)
