Those first two pictures are the cutest ever! It's so great to see both Tricia and Gwyneth doing so well. :)

Ellen said...

Love the pictures! Thanks for sharing.

Gwyneth looks so robust and healthy. I hope she's over 4 lbs now.

Gorgeous!! That looks like a gumdrop pacifier. Our daughter was a 35 weeker and spent 1 week in the NICU. They gave her a pacifier similar to that and up until she was 8 months, it was the only kind she would take. We could only order them online or make trips to the NICU to get more :) So glad to hear how well you are all doing!! Your family continues to be in my prayers.

Thanks for sharing them with us.
I really like the one of Gwyneth sleeping on her stomach.

Erin said...

Nothing interesting to report is a great thing! Love the pictures. Thanks for sharing your story!

Wonderfully sweet pictures! Does Gwyneth have red hair? Praying that everything will keep going well for all of you! Prayers from South Dakota.

Tricia Moran said...

Wow Tricia and Nate :) She is growing so big and she is totally beautiful. I think she will be a future pianist with those long fingers that are always poised so delicately in the air... We are praying every day for the continued healing of both the girls. With love, prayer and hope,
Tricia and Clan (N.VA) :)

Lil' Chris' Mom said...

Sooooooooooo adorable!!! My Lil' Chris loved his green hospital binky and wouldn't take anything else for the first 6 months or so. We ended up paying $10 for a ducky one so we could have at least 2 of them. One of the CF nurses told us about it, and we could only find it in the CF clinic hospital store. It has beads or something in it so it doesn't fall on the floor when they spit it out. He loved to grab onto the ducky too. I think that's what helped him learn how to grab things.
I put new pics of our Lil' Chris on the header of our blog if you want to check it out. I'll dig up a pic of the ducky pacifier too and post it later.

not much to report is a good thing. to me is sounds like life is slowing down a bit for you guys on a daily basis and that things are not changing at warp speed....breath in and enjoy!

Brad & Karen said...

Sweet moments, thank you for sharing.
I want to tell you what my two girls are up to this morning, they are playing hospital, and one of them is getting a new heart and one new lung! They have the scene down pat. I am so glad that they have been made aware through your blog of what donor and transplants are all about! They are even celebrating when the one that had the surgery is up and walking for the first time post surgery! So full of detailed imagination!
Take care and thank you for taking us along on your journey!

Blessings From Above said...

Love the pictures. Gwyneth looks so alert, and just about ready to go home!

Considering all you have been through, it must be a refreshing feeling to not have anything new to report. Enjoy it! :)

Cara said...

You are such a great photographer, Nate! You have taken so many awesome pics, how are you ever going to decide on which one's to frame!? I love the pics of Gwyneth looking up at her mommy...

Em said...

Beautiful Girls

Busy Momma said...

she is just the sweetest! they say the last couple weeks of pregnancy is when baby gains the most weight, you can really see that in her being out in the world! gorgeous

Bre said...

She's so insanely cute. She looks so big!! Thank you for sharing these, they're adorable.

Milk Mama said...

She is so beautiful! I love her beautiful red hair! She is looking so healthy and chubby! Praise God!

twin power mommy said...

i LOVE them. what great pics of your precious baby girl.
Hopefully not too much longer until you get to have her home with you all the time!
Get lotsa rest.

candidchatter said...

Never in my life, honestly, have I enjoyed looking at someone else's baby's pictures this much.

Until now.

She is beautiful and my heart is filled with joy for all of you!

The Walsh's said...

The fifth picture down...her smile looks JUST like Tricia's! She's such a great mix of the two of you. When Lincoln was first born (1 lb. 11 oz.), everyone tried to say who he looked like...I think it was just something people did to try to make things feel "normal" for us, but it was so neat when Lincoln started to gain weight and we were really able to see our features in him.

Gwenyth is beautiful...

Steph said...

Awesome pictures.. Thanks for sharing your special moments!

Tracy P. said...

Ditto the piano player comment (someone beat me to it)--she has the most expressive little hands!

luckidevil2004 said...

I love the pictures... that pacifier looks so huge on her, and yet it's probably not that big at all. I've been following your blog for a while now, and have yet to comment, but I just wanted to say how amazing your faith is, and I'm so glad to see that both Tricia and Gwyneth are doing so well!

r.a.w. said...

Is it me or does she have her mother's smile? Beautiful.

Rick Lawrenson said...

It's true. The picture with the smile looks like Tricia's smile (without teeth, of course).

Debs said...

Beautiful, beautiful baby! She sure is 'blooming'! What a little star, and her Mummy and Daddy too, I read your blog all the way from East Anglia, United Kingdom, you are a national celebrity! all love to you.

Rene said...

I can see why those are favorites! Thank you for sharing. Isn't it nice to NOT have something to post about? Ahhh....the thrills of a normal, boring day!

sandra said...

She is sooo beautiful. Is her hair really red or is it just my computer?

kaylee114 said...

ok i in Gwyneth, I see Tricia's mouth, but the rest is you Nate! So cute! She is getting sooo big!

Julie said...

Oh, wow! Those pics are just priceless.
You've caught little Gwyneth 's personality so well, that I can just about imagine I'm right there with her too!
Fantastic...
Hugs and God Bless

Patty said...

She is growing in leaps and bounds now!

Katie said...

Its amazing watching her grow! She doesn't have that newborn look anymore shes looking more and more like her own beautiful little person everytime I see a new pic! She is SOOOO cute! In my prayers as always.

Jennifer said...

Gwyneth looks really good in pink! Cute pictures.

The Browns said...

She is getting so big!!!!

Marsmile said...

Beautiful photos of the sweet little babe and her mommy! Both Tricia and Gwyn look wonderful.

Gwyn is soooo pretty and cute! Is her hair really that red now? Not as strawberry blonde? Just beautiful. And her eyes--they appear bluish/hazel? I guess they might still be changing, if they will be a different color, a year later.

Her tiny hands seem to always be outstretched--is she giving lots of hi-fives to all of us? ;-) Oh, I also just love her little feet--just makes me want to tickle them, heh... she might not like that too much!

I'd have to say my favorite photo is the one of Gwyn sleeping and smiling with her lil cute hat. But I love all other photos as well!

Thanks for sharing!! How is Tricia doing with PT so far? Glad all is well.

Take care,
Marissa :-)

Lynsey said...

Wow, she looks just like you Nate!! You heart must skip a beat every time you look at her! Keep sharing!

Shari said...

She is on cuttie patootie! The pics of her looking up are priceless! Was she looking at Tricia? She knows who her Mommy and Daddy are!

Amy said...

Beautiful pictures!! Is Tricia having to wear a mask again or were these taken before she was able to hold her without one? You guys remain in my prayers. God id SOOOOO good!!!

Beverly said...

love those big eyes. Nate, she looks so like you...

Jenny said...

Words are not even necessary for those wonderful pictures! Thanks for sharing! It's so wonderful to see Tricia and Gwyneth together finally.

marcia said...

She is just so, so precious! You must just absolutely melt when she looks at you with those wide little eyes!

Sarah said...

Somebody is getting so SO big! I am praying that all is going well with Tricia's recovery and Gwyneth's growth!

God BLESS!!

Rose said...

Beautiful pictures of both Ladies. Where did Gwyneth get that lovely red hair? It looks like it will be absolutely gorgeous as she gets older.

mama j said...

Thanks, for continually, making me smile, with these precious pictures of your gals! The ones that make me smile the biggest--are all those that you're able to capture, of G. smiling....especially in her sleep--PRICELESS! Your family continues to be a blessing in my life, as I am reminded of God's GOODNESS, of His incredible GRACE and MERCY....thanks for being so open, honest and "raw" with your journey! Blessings!

Carol said...

thanks!!!! These are just great. Gwyneth looks more and more like both of you to me - she has Tricia's smile. What a little sweetie - and how very very healthy she is looking.

tripleblessings said...

Every one of those photos is so beautiful - I can't pick a favourite. They remind me of our own NICU preemies, and my heart goes out to Gwyneth and to you parents, becoming a family together. Praise God for all his amazing miracles!

Cheryl said...

I just can't get over how much Gwyneth has grown! I am still in awe of how quickly Tricia's life and health has changed in just a few short weeks. I wonder, has your head stopped spinning yet?

And, we just love "nothing new to report". I think you waited long enough for those words to actually be encouraging!

Christy said...

Those chubby little cheeks are just wonderfully adorable!!

Froggymama said...

I love checking in with your beautiful family. I especially enjoy the expressions on your faces when you look at your daughter. It is the look of 'true love.' And I know how you feel. We continue to pray for your girls. Love, Froggymama (mom of a 2yr old with CF)

Amy Lynn said...

What beautiful pictures!!! :)
Blessings!

Emma R. said...

She is so cute with that passy in her mouth! I forgot how little preemies look compared to those things.Gwyneth is as big now as my twins were when they were born, and I can't imagine anything smaller but seeing this page has made me think of it. She has grown so much and I know you are so proud! Good luck to you, your wife and you beautiful baby girl.

Emma R. said...

In response to Megan722 in case someone else here reads and wonders where to find the "soothie" pacifier they do sell them at walmart. They are hard to find because people snatch them up but keep looking people. My youngest twin took once until about 5 months or so but would ONLY take that kind. I finally found them and it was a blessing

Scott said...

Very Nice!

Charisse said...

Gorgeous photos...really sweet. I love the baby's hair..so sweet.
Love Charisse

Q's NEWS said...

The pictures of Gwyneth looking at either you or Tricia (I didn't pay attention - I was too enthralled with the baby) bring tears to my eyes and could honestly bring me to weep. I have shared your site with many of my friends, telling them that if they want to see a modern day miracle unfold before their eyes, then log on to your site.

Thank you for sharing!

Love from WV,
Susan

The Mileski Bunch said...

We like to call those "Drama Hands"! So precious!

JonesChronicles said...

Most of the time I think Gwyneth looks totally like Nate. But the fifth picture you took today shows that she is Tricia's daughter: the smile (or something) is completely Tricia!

The Smith Family said...

Its great to see the new photos of Gwyneth & Tricia. Im so glad that they are both doing better and pray they will be ready at the same time to go home.
