That is adorable and a MUST do to EVERY baby! haha! My mom gave my son his first "bath" while I was recovering from a c-section and 4 infections so I missed it but when I woke up, she had his hair spiked and had taken tons of pictures! I must say, they were the cutest baby pics of him I have to the day!

We're continuously praying for you guys!

the add youth pastor said...

Any hairdo where the hair sticks up is great.

Nathan this is from my heart:
Once upon a time:not so long ago

Tommy used to work on the docks,
Union's been on strike
He's down on his luck - it's tough, so tough
Gina works the diner all day
Workin' for her man she brings home her pay- for love, mmm for love

She says we've gotta hold on,
to what we've got
It doesn't make a difference if we make it or not,
We got eachother and thats a lot
For Love-we'll give it a shot

Whooooaaa-Were halfway there
Whooooaaa-Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it I swear
Whooooaaa-Livin on a prayer

Tommy's got his six string in hock,
now he's holdin' in, what he used to make it talk
so tough-it's tough
Gina dreams are running away
She cries in the night
Tommy whispers baby its okay, someday

we've gotta hold on
to what we've got
it doesn't make a difference
if we make it or not
we got eachother and thats a lot for love, we'll give it a shot

Whoooaaa-Were halfway there
Whoooaaa-Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand, we'll make it i swear
Whoooaaa-Livin' on a prayer
Livin' on a prayer

(Melt your face off guitar solo goes here)

We've gotta hold on ready or not
You live for the fight
when that's all that you've got

Whoooaaa-Were halfway there
Whoooaaa-Livin' on a prayer
Take my hand,and we'll make it i swear
Whoooaaa-Livin' on a prayer
Livin' on a prayer

With much love,
Gwyneth's Great Uncle Andy

So adorable! Love the way her hair is combed! It definitely is a mother's touch! What a little doll!

Nana2three said...

You do understand that someday she will pay you back for this - Right? :)
So glad you are enjoying her and each other!! Be blessed and sleep well tonight.

Apple said...

Ha! Are the docs still concerned about her weight gain or are they relaxing since she's put on several more ounces recently?

Cori said...

So cute and look at those cheeks!!!

Adrienne said...

Noah's nurses ALWAYS used to give him a 'faux hawk' after bath time. It looks good on little Gwyneth, too!

Lisa said...

I am starting to see the resemblance to you and your wife now. I check this blog multiple times a day in between prayers hoping to see great news! Still praying!

the rye family said...

oh, my goodness! :) my mother-in-law gives ALL the babies in our families - girls and boys - spit curls on the tops of their heads! :) we have pictures of all our kids with just that look - only they were never as tiny as your gwyn - and they never had that much hair! :) still keeping you in our prayers! :)

Andria said...

This is merely the beginning of a lifetime of mother daughter bonding that you will not understand because you are a boy. Sorry Nate. Wait til they go shoe shopping together...

Tracy said...

She is so precious-I love it! I have to admit I have some FUN pics of my kiddos as babies-now as teenagers and a pre-teen they don't appreciate them so much when they are shared but that is so much fun too!! They do pay you back though..my son is right now listening to some music really loud-I know that shows my age. Your time will come!
Gwyneth does look like she is growing-keep growing baby girl!

Kim said...

SWEET!

~j~ said...

She looks like she might be wondering where her fraggle hat is :)

Katy said...

Love it....that is so precious!

Fern said...

Three words. Purple hair dye. Food coloring might be safer. Does it come in purple?

(If I wasn't a total stranger to you, you'd know that my sense of humor is a little "off".)

Laura said...

i had to laugh a lot over this pic. back when daniel first got a g-tube (he was 8 months old or so at the time), his then angry 14 year old sister who was very angry bitter because she couldn't get a navel piercing beheld the feeding tube sticking out of his belly and pronounced it gross to which i suggested that he got a body piercing before she did.
thank goodness i can remember those times with a sense of humor....perhaps a little sick but what else can we do...complain? i am sure you and tricia can relate.
take care guys! we are praying here under the big top!

Deb said...

Very cool, Gwyneth. Very cool. Do you think your parents would mind if you dyed it blue?

The Vick's said...

Nate, Tricia and baby Gwyneth,
This is adorable! What a cutie! I have been reading your blog religiously for the past few months and am addicted to you all. We are praying for you all in Austin, TX and know all of your prayers will be answered in time.

Anna Marie said...

Go Tricia! That is too darn cute :)

Kerry said...

Hey! No nasal cannula?! That's exciting even if just for a little while. Oh and the hair is cute too of course!!

Kerry

By the grace of God ... said...

Dad -- don't you know ALL moms do this to their baby's hair when they are that age. (sigh) Moms know best!!! You can definitely tell she is growing -- she has changed a bunch. Still cute, of course!

amangoprincess said...

Yay! I see no more oxygen for Miss Gwyneth!! She looks so much bigger in this pic ,too! Love the spiky hair! Also, just curious, why are her eyelids so red and puffy? Is that still from her eye surgery?

swahilimama said...

That's not punk rocker hair, that's just a lil' baby curl. My Suzanne had one too. It's cute.

Kat said...

Wow - RED hair! And NO nasal canula!...and, and, and...they changed her NG tube so that we can finally see her beautiful little lips!!

Cortney said...

Haha! I love it!

lcourtneymom said...

So cute! One of the joys of being a parent: you can do crazy things to your kid and take their picture!

Reminiscent of those adorable cupie dolls.

ahollyb7 said...

Melissa said...

Teehee, Tricia, you ROCK!

pudding pie said...

omg. she looks so cute!!!!!!!!!

Terry said...

ADORABLE!! As if she weren't cute enough, she's getting cuter by the day!

Aggiema (Michelle) said...

I like it! I think every Mom does that once their baby has enough hair. A little bow would be cute too!

Kristen said...

LOL!!! Ok, props goes to Mom then! Why else would babies have hair if not for their parents to groof with? And for girls, its doubly hard cause when she brings by that boyfriend...out comes the embrassing baby book...etc.

Carol said...

Gotta love that hairdo! And those cheeks are definitely looking plumper!

Amy said...

I love the red hair... my little man has fiery red hair. She is just beautiful!

Praying for you guys tonight.

Punchbugpug said...

How cute! Funny, I think all of us mom's have done this hairdo to our little ones at one time or another! Gwyneth is adorable such a miniature baby!

We continue to hold you all in our daily thoughts and prayers.

Martha said...

She is getting more beautiful every day.

Shari said...

all little girls need curls on their heads....good for Tricia!!
Too cute!

Mandy said...

I think she looks cute, Nate! I missed most of the excitement! We went out of town over the weekend, and I checked in early and went to bed early! My prayers never cease for Tricia though! They remain steadfast and strong. God has the perfect match for her. Gwyneth is awesome! The hairdo definitely rocks!

Sheri said...

She looks amazing. I had the baby and haven't seen her in a week.
I am praying for Tricia's lungs to come soon.
I have been meaning to tell you guys. Dameron's mother moved back in with my sis and is now helping to take care of him. Not financially but with his care. Her and Dameron's father are no longer involved and there are some issues getting custody(he hasn't or won't sign over his rights).
I have also talked my sis and 2 nieces into doing the great strides walk this year. My sister had said a month ago that she wasn't ready for that.

Love the hair!

sandra said...

That is the cutest punk rocker i've ever seen!

jheatherdefoor said...

Precious! Sweet! Your blessed with a cutie pie!

Catherine said...

Check out that adorable red mohawk! You're lookin' fine Gwyneth!!

Sumer said...

Your daughter and wife are both beautiful! I love keeping up on your journey and will continue to keep you all in our prayers!

MadMaude53 said...

How cute!! I've thought that she looked more like Nate before seeing this picture, but I can really see her Mama in this one--judging from the pictures you've posted. She will like these pictures when she's 5 to 10 years old--hate them when she's 10 to 19--and then love them again after that!!!!

Renee said...

beautiful!!

tripleblessings said...

Oh, so sweet! She reminds me of our daughter Maggie when she was in the NICU, and my heart melts. I can really see that G is now over 2pounds, and looks like she's past 30 weeks too. Way to go, Gwyneth! You've grown and developed so much.
Nate and Tricia, I'm so glad you got to spend time caring for your baby again today - a great joy and comfort, I am sure.

Strawberry_Lamb said...

She is beutiful. She is looking more and more like Trisha (sorry Nate). What a cutie!

K said...

LOL! Perfect! ALL moms do this, it's a not-so-secret tradition.

Amy Lynn said...

That is just too adorable! :)
She is getting so big, too.
It looks like she is growing!!! :)
Blessings!

She is a sweetie pie!

Scott said...

too cute!

Julie Stanton said...

Look at those little chubber cheeks! Even though she's tiny, she's really starting to look like an "older"/full term baby now. What an answer to prayer! I'm really sorry the transplant didn't work out the other day. I've been praying for you guys and for the donor family. I know another offer will come up soon for you!

Shannon said...

Too cute for words!

I love your new hairdo Gwyneth... your mom can add a bow to your hair by placing a dot of baby oil on the ribbon and place it on your hair...Have a wonderful day. Hugs..

NC Krol Family said...

Nancy said...

She is going to be so mad at you for that picture someday. But oh so cute! Thanks
