Flesh of My Flesh (Part 2)

Tricia no longer has to wear mask and gloves with Gwyneth. These are from the past few days...

This was on Monday night, when Tricia walked
from her room to Gwyneth's and back again.

This was during our visit last night.

Beautiful Pics! I have to say that as I was just feeding my 21 month old Terror, Cora, her lunch I was thinking how much she drives me crazy! She thinks that it is terribly funny to spit her juice down the front of her smock! Of course laughing the entire time! Now, I realize that you guys can't wait to have moments like that! Congrats on having one of your girls home, Nate! One down, one to go!! <3

Almost as precious as watching my own daughter hold and kiss her daughter for the first time Friday.

Hold on to her tight Tricia, she'll grow up before you realize it.

Best pictures ever...

amy said...

Dont know you, but how do you not cry when looking at these?

Paul and Christy said...

I am crying like a baby. I have 2 boys and I know that feeling. There is nothing else like it. I just have to thank God for that. I told my hubby yesterday that Gwyneth will probably double her weight really quickly now with her mom being able to touch her. Praise the LORD!!!!!

Congratulations on everything--the discharge, Gwyneth's weight gain, the skin to skin kangaroo care, the house cleaning, the Target runs, the media coverage, and the heightened awareness of the importance of being an organ donor.

We are very very hopeful that in a few short weeks your lovely daughter will be joining you all at home.
