Wow---Gwyneth is just getting so much cuter every day (if that's possible because she's one of the cutest babies I've ever seen)...I hope that this is going to be the news of Tricia holding her beautiful daughter...you are all still in my prayers.

What a beautiful site!!!

Florida_Mom said...

She's a doll. Could that masked person be her Mommy holding her in that adorable picture?? I sure hope so.

Can't wait to hear all your wonderful day and see the weekly White Rose blooming Gwyneth/Pug pictues.

Praying that your week just gets better and better.

Happy 8 Week Birthday Gwyneth!

In Christ

Christy said...

Absolutely beautiful. Her features are changing and she is just as beautiful as ever. Great picture! Looking forward to the good news. Always praying.

Julie Stanton said...

Tears are coming to my eyes right now because I realize how much I take for granted being able to pick up and hold my baby any time I want. How precious it must be for Tricia to hold her child for the first time. Thank you Lord!

That's it, isn't it?—Tricia holding a beautiful White Rose. I hope so. Gwyneth has the most precious expressions on her tiny face. I love it.

Andie said...

Absolutely adorable...who is that masked person? IS it Mommy? Can't wait to know!

Deb said...

Is that Tricia holding her? I know you said that she wasnt going to be able to hold her until after the new lungs- but I've been praying for it anyways. Because I know what it's like to not be able to hold my baby (not for nearly that long though). Cant wait til tomorrow!!!

Gina Witcher / Runnermom4 said...

Okay, that looks like Tricia holding Gwyneth. I'm already crying and I don't even know for sure yet. This is a little like seeing a glimpse of God. He is so awesome!

Kristi said...

Again with the goosebumps!!! Absolutely amazing!! Can't wait to see more. ^_^

Marcia said...

Lorri said...

YAY TRICIA!!! Priceless!! What a wonderful moment. She's beautiful and looks very comfy in your arms.

I'm 99.9% sure that the non-stubbly face behind the mask is Tricia!! :) Sorry Nate..your skin isn't quite that smooth.

So our church is having a revival this week. The entire worship service I couldn't stop thinking about you guys. Especially during the song amazing grace. Now I don't know why I couldn't stop thinking about you. Or what made me start thinking. I won't tell you some of the thoughts I had, as I am sure you have had them or heard them. So the entire song service I was praying and thinking for you guys. deep thought. Praying that Tricia would soon hold her baby. Soon have a successful transplant. So many thoughts. I don't normally send a comment, or tell people when I'm praying. I like to keep things like that to myself. But I felt like I should tell you tonight for some reason. I hope you guys have a wonderful week.

Nothing better than holding your new baby for the first time!! And--to have to wait do it makes it even sweeter!!

Kim said...

Fern said...

Is your sweet little dickens finally rid of her feeding tube and able to drink from a bottle? I hope an old lady is right about that.

Erin said...

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Okay, I want to believe that it is Tricia holding Gwyneth but it looks like you blurred the face. Would you do that to us? :-) I woke up early and just had to check in to see if you had posted an update. Will keep checking throughout the day.

Debra said...

ladergurl said...

Oh how I hope that is Tricia. Holding your babies for the first is amazing!!

Hutch & Meg said...

Oh how I take for granted being able to hold my son every day. Thanks for giving us perspective daily. I'm sure Gwyenth will have some of the best days this week, after being held by her own Mommy.

theragan3 said...

Jenny said...

What a beautiful baby girl. Just wanted to let you know I have come across your blog by way of another. Thanks so much for sharing the beautiful, challenging life that you and your family are facing. I can only hope that my prayers along with many, many others bring you all comfort and strength. You three are amazing and truly an example of God's love for us all. Your message is not lost along the way, Thank you.

kidsworld said...

You are so...sweet to share such an amazing story...with a 'blogosphere' full of strangers (except for me, of course, because we know each other well. Well, at least I know you guys well. But maybe someday you will know ME!!!) It's been almost two months and I still can't get enough of your blog. I'm still in awe of your captivating writings and the story of faith, love, courage, patience, endurance,etc behind it. Normally, I don't have time to brush my teeth without making my bed or something else at the same time. (can you say 4 kids? just ask your SIL, janet!) Someway, somehow, God has created a quiet time in the morning to check in on my favorite cyberfamily and walk away to spend the rest of my day with new thoughts that you have provoked. Can't thank you enough for all that you do to brighten my day!

Can't wait for the next update (although, I will!) Blessings to your wonderful family!

YAY! YAY! YAY! Tricia I know (as a fellow mom) that htis is a moment you have prayed for and longed for even before she was born. I am so thankful that God has blessed you with this opportunity to hold a real life miracle. Congrats! I am also thanking God that he has kept you safe and healthy so that Gwyneth can be in her precious mama's arms. God bless your whole family today!

God is GREAT!
