White Rose Blooming (14 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 now 15 inches long, and you weigh 3lbs 3oz!!!

Your fourteenth week was another great one! Your mommy finally got her new lungs! After several days away, she finally was able to come down and hold you again! You continue to grow every day, and your mommy got to feed you for the first time. And, your latest eye exam shows that your eyes are healing and getting stronger!

You finally got to move out of your incubator and into a crib! And, you were moved to the stepdown unit, which means you are doing so well and are getting closer and closer to going home with us! All you need to do is gain a little more weight and eat everything from your bottle!

In the next week, we're praying that you enjoy your time in the stepdown unit and continue to grow closer to 2000 grams and continue eating more and more from your bottle.

We love you!

Wow, so many new and exciting things happening. I think this has been the best week for Gwyneth yet! The pug is looking smaller and smaller. Are you sure it's not the little pug again???

Continuing to pray for you in Ohio.

Love seeing the growth and changes in Gwyneth! She is a mighty strong little micro-premie! I am so glad that God answered Tricia's prayer! What a reward for keeping faithful and for believing!
My two girls love seeing the updates! They are 6 and 8!

So incredible!! I love the little snuggly "womb" she is wrapped up in. I can think of a few children that might have enjoyed having something like that!!
I loved the pictures in the previous post. She is certainly looking cuter and cuter. I love those big dark eyes!! She is going to turn some heads one day. Hope you have your stick ready!

Absolutly beautiful! It's so precious to see how much she is growing. Thanks for sharing, and as always you continue to be in our prayers.

Jenni said...

She is adorable!!! And just an amazing baby!

Is she in the room at the end of the hall when you go past the PICU on the right?

My son was in that room the weekend after he was born because he was stabilized and awaiting heart surgery that Monday morning (08/07/06). The room had four PICU beds for heart babies, and the rest were grower/feeders - babies they were just waiting for them to get bigger!
