White Rose Blooming (9 Weeks)

Every Tuesday while you're in the hospital, we'll take a picture with your pug so that everyone can see how much you are growing!

You are still a little bit bigger than 12 inches long, and you gained some more weight this week and you are now just a little bit under 2lbs!

Your ninth week was your best week yet! You went nearly the entire week without any kind of breathing machine and without any extra oxygen! By the end of the week though, you got a little tired, so they put you back on the vent. But, you're doing great!

You also had your fourth negative MRSA swab, and they finally moved you out of contact isolation, which means that your daddy and grandparents get to touch you without any gloves on again! Your mommy came down nearly every day, and she was able to hold you several times. And, for the very first time, both of your grandmothers were able to hold you!

In the next week, we're praying that you'll be breathing so well that you'll work your ways towards breathing again without any help. We're also praying that you'll make it to 2 lbs. and even more! And, we're praying that you stay infection free and don't have to go back into contact isolation.

We love you!

Uh oh, Meeka had better watch out Gweynth is gaining on her. What a little beauty she is. I have watched your BLOG for some time and you and your family are such an inspiration to me. I thank God for yours and Tricia's courage and your strong devotion. I pray for you daily. Hang in there and always remember that God never said it would be an easy journey only that it would be worth it.

it won't be long and she will far surpass the pug!! she is just too cute!

Jenn said...

Wow... she is longer than her pug.. great stuff Gwyneth. Here's to praying she will be back off the vent again soon. It is wonderful she was able to be held by her grandparents and her mom.

I see the likeness in the generations before her, but Gwyneth is very beautiful and feminine. You and the grandpas are not beautiful and feminine. God has blessed us all with this precious angel!

Candi said...

She is getting so big and prettier by the day!

Continued prayers..

Lisa said...

Can't believe she's 9 weeks already! She really does look like she's getting bigger, and her skin is looking less preemie-ish. So cute. :)

Carissa said...

She is so beautiful and precious and she is getting so strong! My sis had quadruplets which were about 12 weeks premature, so I am familiar with all the ups and downs of these precious preemies. Praying for strength for you, Tricia, and Gwyneth!

Caroline said...

She is getting so LONG!!! Either that or she is just enjoting stretching more! She just looks so alert and birght - wonderful!

May God continue to bless and keep you all!

She is really cute! We love little Gwyneth.

Jarboetwingles said...

That Pug is getting smaller! I was just wondering if the pug has a name? Another possible cf husband contest!?!
Praying that everyone keeps oing well and getting big (Tricia and Gwenyth) :)

Kristi said...

WOW! She's getting so big - She's actually looking a little "PUGGY"(pudgey)!! You can see her start to fill out! That's so awesome!! We are still praying!! Much love - Bamagirl!!!

Alvin said...

She's adorable :D Bet she's gonna be a pretty lady in the future ;)

Brody's Mom said...

More beautiful than ever! Great job on another wonderful week, Gwyneth!!

Hugs and love!

Carol said...

I'm amazed at how completely adorable Gwyneth looks even with all that machinery hanging around her. It looks like they are doing a great job of making her comfie with her legs propped up on the soft blanket. I'm thinking that you have a marketing opportunity to produce Gwyneth dolls that look just like her--everyone would want to buy one!

Shari said...

Our God is an awesome God
He reigns from heaven above
With wisdom pow'r and love
our God is an awesome God

one of my favorite songs!! Glad Gwyneth is filling out so nicely and infection free!! She is gonna out grow that pug pretty quickly!!

Love and prayers,
Shari NC

Paul and Christy said...

Praise God. I need good news and something good to lift and encourage me today. I can't believe what a difference that 9 weeks has made. She is so lively and getting prettier daily. This has been an awesome experience for me. Paul and I have prayed for more children. God hasn't allowed us to have more. It does my heart good to see that someone else that really wanted a child gets to have a real miracle baby. God is so good. I love that the grandma's got to hold her too. This life is so amazing, no matter what.
Hugs to some great parents!
Christy

Tammy C said...

Paige said...

Look at those Legs!! :)Praying she is off the vent soon.

Praying for Tricia today too. She must get restless/frustrated sometimes, so I'll pray for an extra special blessing for her today.

It's funny that if a full term baby were born at 2 pounds it'd be considered to be extremely tiny, but Gwyneth at 2 pounds is starting to look big!

Larissa said...

She's growing so much! I'm so glad she's out of contact isolation, and will continue to pray.

ElioraImmanuel said...

Wow! She's just getting more gorgeous every week! Praise the Lord for His goodness!

She is looking so good! The growth is amazing. Gwyneth Rose is wonderfully made. But we did already know that. =)

Emmie said...

Wow! She's got so big! There is such a dramatic difference in just a few weeks :o) She is starting to look like a real "baby" now (if that makes sense) and gets more and more gorgeous by the day. She looks so well too. Congratulations Tricia and Nate, you have a truly adorable little one there and must be very proud! xxx

jmgarnet76 said...

She's soooooooooo big. Funny saying that about an almost 2 pound baby. She looks so long. I am so glad that the grandmother's got to hold Gwyneth. What a joyous moment that must have been. Have a blessed day.
