What a Doll!!

I feel so blessed to have come across your blog a few weeks ago.

Over the last week I have truly felt so much peace and love that has been portrayed threw the many posts I've read. I"ve went backk quite aways.

This evening, while I was reading your previous post w/the slide show of your sweet Gwenth my children were eating dinner. Both were so stunned and a rare thing happened...they were speechless!!

My 8 yr replied with "WOW...God is Good Mommy!!!"

God is Good!! He is VERY VERY GOOD and he is shinning threw in your lives so abundantly!!

:) Love in Him

Mandy said...

Yeah for Gwyneth!! She's so precious and beautiful with just her feeding tube. I remember when my little girl Reese was taken off nasal canula! We were so proud.
I'm so happy for her..what a big girl she is. Thank the Lord for your "ordinary miracle".

Joy said...

Wow, God is good! That is truly amazing! I was in the hospital with twin preemies for 85 days and I know what an accomplishment it is to see your baby with no breathing apparatus covering their beautiful faces! Praise God! She's beautiful!

marcia said...

What a gorgeous pic! You keep out-doing yourself with those photos! Look at those eyes! And no nasal cannula...no nothing! Nate as I looked at that picture and read your words, my mind kept flipping back and forth between Chris Tomlin's "How Great is Our God"....and Dr. Suess "Oh, the Places You Will Go!" I think I need some sleep!:):) Hope you all get some tonight, too! Continuing in prayer!

Stevens Clan said...

Beautiful!!

Rejoicing with you all tonight!

On a funny note...she now weighs only 9 pounds less then my first born weighed at birth!

MCK Mama said...

Ahhhh, that's SO amazing and wonderful! Christ is King!!

Julie said...

What a beautiful picture. One of my favorites... I think that it might be a tie with the picture of her looking at tricia from the corner of her eye, smiling. God's goodness is seen in every little piece of her. ..."His works are wonderful, I know that full well"!!

Dee Dee said...

Isn't she beautiful!
I think she's gonna look like Tricia.
Congratulations, all! Good breathing. Yep, He is amazing.

Dana said...

as a NICU nurse i can tell you that gwyneth is AMAZING!!!!! i don't know if they have told you the significane of her being off the vent and off of CPAP by now, and how wonderful that is for her development and progress forward. for her to be on room air at this point is the most wonderful thing that could happen for all of you :)

you all look gorgeous!

i would love to knit some hats for gwyneth, or pants for when she is bigger and wearing clothes in a crib. danapledgie@yahoo.com

God Bless you all,
Dana

Mandy said...

WOW~sitting here in quiet praise! And this song we sing in toddler church and around our home keeps echoing through my heart and mind:

My God is so big
So strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do!

The mountains are His
The valleys are His
The stars are His handiwork too!

My God is so big
So strong and so mighty
There's nothing my God cannot do!

Sitting in awe of our Creator (yet again thanks to your family),

This picture is beautiful! You can really tell how strong she is getting.

Thank you for sharing your story and bringing the CF and organ donation causes so much attention. I lost my uncle to CF and I am a carrier of the CF gene and would like nothing more than to see a cure for CF.

I will always keep you, Tricia, and Gwyneth in my prayers.

Ashley

Kait said...

You know, when I first started to read your blog, I wasn't sure I agreed with your decision to have the baby at the risk of both lives. Since it wasn't my choice, my body, or my life, I kept my mouth shut.

I was so wrong to doubt the validity of your babys right to live. She is a gorgeous miracle of a child and you two are the luckiest parents alive.

The Hallenbeck's said...

Praise the Lord. She is beautiful. That is an awesome pic.

Will's Mommy said...

Simply amazing... His work on earth is simply amazing.

Nicole said...

I have grown addicted to your ongoing story and the past two nights i have just cried out of awe! you are such a blessed man to have such an amazing wife and mother and the most strong and beautiful child i have ever known of. I cannot get over God's faithfulness and how beautiful Gwyneth is and how she is now independently breathing! Your child has encouraged me more than you could know in her few months of life. God is already using such a small little lady in my life and many lives. She is such a blessing.
You and your wife are truly blessed by her!

Im praying for your beautiful amazing loving family. Hang in there with not being able to be their main care taker...!

Amy said...

There was a double rainbow in the sky in Baltimore today after a thundershower, and I thought of your family and prayed for you. And then to come home and read your blog update for today . . . . God is so AMAZING!!!!!

Amy said...

She is truly a miracle! It looks like she has her Mommy's big brown eyes.

To see her face without tubes or anything like that, is just so amazing. She's so tiny, yet she is just... such a miracle!! God be praised!!

wow!!! She is truly a miracle baby. I can't believe the progression. To see here when she was born, till now is breathtaking. Her skin didn't even look thick enough when she first got here. She is also so much more alert in the last couple of days even. I am so glad you are all getting to spend more time together and getting to know each other. These are moments you will treasure forever.

Jen said...

Congrats!!!
I've been reading your blog for more than a month now. My husband and I have 2 boys...Zachary born at 23w 4d in June '02 that unfortunately was only with us a week and a half...and our living, breathing miracle Ryan was born at 23w 5d in Aug. '03. He spent 6 months in the NICU and had quite a struggle. It was the most amazing feeling to finally (at 4 months old) see him off all breathing apparatus! I'm sooo happy for you guys and I hope and pray Gwyneth continues to grow and thrive : ).
P.S. She's beautiful!

Momof3inHelena said...

WOW! GO GOD!! That is an amazing picture. I love being able to see her face. My son was on the nasal cannula for almost as long as Gwyn was and the day they took the cannula off was one of the best. It just goes to show what a fighter she is! God is SO GOOD! Keep growing strong Baby Gwyn.


ps. my 2 yr old saw a picture of himself in the NICU and when I asked him who the baby was, he told me with enthusiasm "Baby Gwyn!" Well - not really kid!!

Twinkletoes said...

I just found your site yesterday (I don't even recall from where) and I can say I was hooked! What an amazing story! I wish the most heathy wishes for all three of you!
Congratulations on the HUGE milestone of Gwyneth breathing on her own!
*and I have to say - I have two favorite pictures - one is Tricia holding Gwyneth for the first time...and the other is you holding Gwyneth with both hands, up close to your face. It's the first picture where I could get a good perspective of just how tiny and precious she is.
Thanks for sharing your journey!

Tracy said...

I am a "lurker" but had to comment about this!! I had my own little preemie. Born ten weeks early he came home on oxygen and was tied to a tank for the first ten months of his life. For her to reach this milestone.........WOW.....that is all I can say!God is trustworthy!

By the way, my one and only sibling lost his first born to complications from CF at seven months of age. He and his wife now have three living children and another on the way. Two of the three have CF and since my brother is in the Army and stationed at Fort Bragg they are treated and have all of of their hospital stays at Duke.

Your God is great. When my kids were babies (they will turn 2 on tax day), I used to look at their skin, eyes, hair and think "Those are all brand new!" What a wonderful gift from the Lord.

Becky in VA said...

Your Girl is Beautiful - all two pounds of her!! I'm very sincere when I say "Thank You" for letting us share all these special days of your life. January 8 is a very good day to be born on - I've been waiting to tell you that. In our family it is so special because my grandmother was born on January 8, and my younger sister was also born on January 8. My grandson's due date was also January 8, but we wanted his OWN birthday, and was lifted into the world (C-section) on January 9. Even though my dear grandmother has passed away, January 8 is a very special day and even more so because your precious Gwyneth is also a January 8 baby.
Oh, and do I need to remind you that ELVIS was born on January 8!
January 8th Rocks!

Life is Good - enjoy this beautiful day.

We do indeed serve an AWESOME God!! What a little sweetheart. My premie, now 2 years old, and I were looking at your latest Gwyneth Rose video and she kept on pointing and saying, "Baby," so I got her to say, "Baby Gwen." She loves babies and so does her mommy!
Still keeping you in my prayers.
