White Rose Blooming (15 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 16 inches long, and you weigh a whopping 4lbs!!!

Your fifteenth week was another great week! You grew nearly a full pound this past week, and not even your nurses know how to explain it! You are already outgrowing a lot of your clothes. You are looking and feeling healthy, and nearly everyday you seem to be more and more aware of your surroundings.

Your mommy finally was able to hold you without wearing a mask or gloves, which made both of you very happy. She walked into the nursery without a wheelchair for the first time as well, and has been able to spend more and more time with you. And, she finally was discharged from the hospital, which means that we get to spend some time getting things ready for you at home!

In the next week, we're praying that you continue eating more and more from your bottle and continue to grow and stay healthy so that we can take you home soon.

We love you!

look at how "fat" she is! That is just precious! I can't wait to see how big that double chin can get, Miss Gwyneth!

Woohoo, praise God!

Sonja said...

Precious pictures, so beautiful! And she is getting so big! Praying for the day that you all get to go home together.

mom2izzyandallen said...

I feel like I'm "e-stalking" you today. This is such an amazing week for your family. We are thanking the Lord with you.

megasam said...

I knew she looked bigger but I can't believe she gained a pound in a week. She has the cutest cheeks, I wish I could squeeze them. She is going home with you in no time. Gwyneth you rock just like your mommy.

littlemis said...

Oh my gosh, she's getting the darling chubby baby cheeks and double chin. My daughter had that and it's so adorable. My grandson has the big fat cheeks and it's just great. I'm soooo tickled that miracles are happening for you and Tricia, and thank you AGAIN for sharing this all with us so we can partake in this miracle of LIFE.

You are truly an inspiration.

The Rosetto's said...

Goodness! Dare I say she looks chunky! But of course ever so lovely. I continue to be amazed at her progress.

Nadine said...

No ways!...She has changed so much!
My daughter think your trying to trick us with a smaller pug...
She is beautiful!
Great catching up for the little one.
God Bless you guys!

LoveLladro said...

I know how to explain the weight gain... she is realizing that mom is out of the hospital already and she wants out too! 4 lbs... so happy! Keep gaining little one, your are almost outta there!

Alaina said...

April said...

Hooray for pug domination. Keep up the good work and bloom well White Rose. It's spring time and it would be really awesome for you to go home for Mother's Day!

Kerry J. said...

Those cheeks look positively chubby to me!!!! So happy for your family and all the "firsts" you all are experiencing. We continue to pray for you.

Yea!!!!! I'm so excited for you and Tricia (re: the post below) and so happy the baby is doing so well! The photos are so sweet of mom and baby. Again, my heart just leaps for joy for the 3 of you and I continually pray for you each day.

Sincerely,

Amy

Jenn said...

WOW! Look how big she is getting! Are you sure that is the same pug stuffed dog? :)

Keep on keeping on!

In the Mix said...

I love the chubby double chin. Praises to the LORD for unexplained growth spurts!

Holly said...

Look at that double chin! How beautiful - she is so precious.

joyfulmom said...

She's looking like a full-term newborn now. What a cutie pie deluxe!!! And she's the spitting image of her Daddy. :0) Okay, spitting sounds kinda gross, but you know what I mean.

Hugs from El Paso,
Karla

Paul and Christy said...

The very most complimentary thing that I can think of is that Gwyneth almost looks chubby compared to 14 weeks ago. This is amazing. I know how big our God is and it still amazes me to see Mom and daughter doing so wonderful. I am in awe. Isn't this the week that she should be being born??? I may be mistaken. WOW. in case you missed it, I will type it backwards too WOW!!!
Christy

Barron Triplets said...

Look at those chubby cheeks! Too cute. We're praying for a speedy trip home for Miss Gwyneth!

Carol said...

Wow - love to see a little bit of baby fat on her!!!! How perfect. Maybe she and Mommy just needed that additional time they have been able to have with each other of late to start making lots of headway. Lots of nourishing going on at many levels. Its just all wonderful.

Jennifer Burgett said...

She is getting "chubby"!!! I love it!

Susan said...

So great - she is starting to look like a "Chubby" little girl and not so much as a premie - even though she is still tiny!!

Mary said...

Wow, she looks HUGE! And she's getting even prettier too. She must get that from her mom. Ha! So glad you both got some much needed rest last night and that Tricia can finally hold her daughter without gloves. What a blessing. And it reminds me how much we take the little things (like taking a shower) for granted. Hope you're all having a good day.

The Beaver Bunch said...

Wow! What a cute kid. Bet her parents are proud. Yipee! Praying for you all...

Carol said...

Look at that tummy and those cheeks! And plump arms and legs--so neat to see her growing. And, beautiful to see she and Tricia together.

jamie said...

4 pounds! I know she isn't really, but she is looking huge!! Can you imagine???? Man o man, she looks GREAT!!!!!
She's gonna be ready to be sprung before you know it!!!
God Bless you all

Chantal said...

Way to grow, Gwyneth!! :)

I love the weekly updates on your Blessed White Rose. She is changing so quickly now. I bet she knows that her family will soon be whole and home.

Sending another whisper on the wind to baby Gwyn... eat, eat, eat....

Praying for her homecoming to be soon.

Erin said...

GORGEOUS! I love that sleeping smile on her face, the positivity Tricia is putting into this world is being felt all over, especially by her husband and sleeping babe :)

Lady Eli said...

I think she is looking more and more like her daddy every day. It is so amazing what a difference a week of growth will make to a child. Have fun watching her grow. Word of advice and I know you hate it... but don't blink. She'll be running soon.

lae said...

chubby never looked so beautiful! wishing you all the best

Heather N said...

That is amazing... simply amazing...

Mrs. Wilson said...

LOOK AT THOSE CHEEKS! Pack it on girl! Great job!

As usual, she's getting more and more beautiful every week!

And congrats Tricia for getting discharged!!

Brie said...

Oh my GOODNESS!!! Look at her CHINS!!! Gwyneth is so cute and is just thriving in a way that blows my mind every single Tuesday I check in! And Mazel Tov to Tricia- I KNOW you enjoyed that shower, girl!! Consider it the fresh, clean start to a new existance for you!

Heather N said...

P.S. I believe that's the same pug so I have to ask- are you switching babies on us?

Hillary said...

I love her chubbiness!! Gwyneth is looking so healthy!

Michelle said...

I see fat rolls!

Heather Leech said...

Oh my goodness! At first I thought you were pulling another prank and using the baby pug! Gwyneth is looking so beautiful (as always), but so healthy as well! What an absolute blessing! I can't wait to see pictures on her first birthday, her first day of school...she's and absolute doll! Prayers for an easy (or as easy as possible) transition for Trish to life outside the hospital. And may Gwyneth continue to grow and blossom so that you all may be back home really soon!! The pictures of 'your 2 girls' together recently have brought tears.
With love,

melissam2 said...

Look at that beautiful double chin :>) WOW! Must be knowing that Mommy is doing so well, too, and that home is just around the corner for you all!

Kate said...

Wow! Look how far she's come! What an amazing family you have. Looks like she'll be big enough to join her mom and dad at home before we know it!

Dirkey said...

She looks positively chubby now!
How wonderful, she's like wait you left without me let me gain all the weight I need to get outa here!!

Renee said...

Oh my goodness...look at those cheeks!! She's growing like a pretty little weed!

Patty said...

Oh wow she is getting so big!!!

The Worgess Family said...

1 lb this past week? Well, you know they say a baby can gain up to a pound a week during the last month of pregnancy, and isn't she about the end of when she should have been born? She's just making up for it OUTSIDE the womb! Congrats on your two lovely ladies and all the wonderful things God has provided this week for you!!

Staci said...

Wowza! I see baby fat!! Isn't it funny how fat is rather cute on a little one. With us, not so much. She looks amazing! I'll bet she will be on her way out of hospital very, very soon. Life is about to get even busier, but SO much fun!

Stinky John Jones said...

Wow! I have been keeping up but in these pictures she is getting so big!

Can't wait to hear the three of you are home together!

Congrats Tricia on the success and discharge....glad that you are "home" and feeling great!

Enjoy your showers!

Rachel's Roost said...

That girl's getting downright chubby!!!

Jennifer said...

I agree with everyone else...Gwyneth is looking chubby! So now her biggest goal to get released is gaining a few more ounces and eating on her own!!! Go girl, you can do it!!!

Danielle in MO said...

she is starting to make that pug look small!! yeah!! won't be long now!! Looking forward to that post!

Life In Progress said...

She's just gettin' downright chubby!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Thanks so much for sharing. She sure is a sweetie!

val said...

She is getting so big!! I just looked back at 2ks & was amazed at how much she has grown

Prayers for your family

Vicki said...

4 lbs - that's AWESOME!!! I'll bet I can guess why she gained so much weight this week - she's loving those extra special times with her Mommy and Daddy and can't wait to get home! Praying for that she'll be out of the hospital soon.

Kelly said...

Her growth this last week is simply astounding--4 pounds??!! Wow, that is awesome!!!!!!! She's gettin' some chub on her---LOVE it!!!!!!!!!

Amy E. said...

Answered prayers. Amen and PTL!!!

Kristen said...

This is my first time commenting but I just could not resist saying, PRAISE THE LORD!!! This truly is the most amazing miracle story I think I've ever had the chance to see proof of in my life. To see both your girls defy the odds and to be thriving so beautifully is truly a blessing. Thanks for sharing this story with us.

Linda said...

When our preemie got to 4lbs. we called our precious daughter our "little fatty". Not something you call her when she reaches 16, but I couldn't help but remember the awesome feeling of how it felt. Gwyneth is BEAUTIFUL! Just like her mommy!!! "God is an Awesome God"

Sweetteach said...

Wow! Look at those chubby cheeks! I have never thought of chubbiness as a 'gift from God' but in this case it certainly is! Bloom little Gwyenth, bloom! You are so beautiful!

Mom To Jacob & Allison said...

Wow! Look at those chins! And those cheeks - too cute for words!

Amy said...

Grow Gwyneth Grow!! What an amazing week.

Shan said...

i love her beautiful little (not so little anymore) face...i just want to hug her. so happy that you 2 are "home" and i know that you THREE will be together soon. so happy for you guys. praise God.

AlaneM said...

That pug looks smaller & smaller each week...Woo-Hoo!!!
She's getting all pudgy, how cute is that? I wanna give her some smooches on those cheeks she's getting :)

And how appropriate is it that I miss another milestone. I was out of town when Tricia got the transplant & I've been too busy this week to check blogs until now. But at least this time I'm only 1 day late.
Congrats, it must be heaven to be together again!

speckledpup said...

who'd a thunk we'd one day be using the word chubby about Gwyneth.
Soooooooo coool.

Haley said...

great news! she is looking so beautiful and healthy!

Sarah said...

Miss Gwyneth is so BIG!!! Look at that double chin! She is getting so big and strong... I am praying constantly for her to join you and Tricia at home!!

Praise the Lord!!

She is so adorable...and chubby!!!

She really has grown so much in the past week. PRAISE GOD!

raising2sons said...

Gwyneth is just beautiful! What wonderful news that she's doing so well!!! I just watched the news video...what a heartfelt clip of your story. Many prayers and best wishes for a bright and wonderful future for the 3 of you. Blessings,

My Goodness said...

Oh my!! Your precious girl is filling out very nicely!! :) Double chins are only cute on babies!! hee!

She wants to go home...it won't be long! :)

Martha said...

Wow, she is really filling out. I am amazed at the changes in the last few weeks. She is beautiful and those chubby cheeks and legs are wonderful.

The Lenda's said...

I think that the big weight gain had to do with spending more time with her mommy. Daddy has been taking good care of her but every newborn baby loves to be snuggled, fed and comforted by their mama. Tricia so glad that you are getting to hold your little miracle and feel her skin and smell ehr precious smell.

Annie LuMaye said...

WOW...she's starting to look like a chubby little HEALTHY baby!!!! She looks FABULOUS! Thanks for sharing!! Congratulations on Tricia's release from the hospital. I cannot even begin to imagine what that must feel like for her. An AMAZING week for both of you!!

Emily said...

I love those chubby cheeks!! You just want to squeeze them and kiss them, I'm sure. :) She is growing so much! What a praise!

grey like snuffie said...

Isn't God's timing of it all so amazing. And I LOVE CHUBBY CHEEKS!

Kate said...

most beautiful double chin i've ever seen. :)

mrsredboots said...

How wonderful that she is growing so fast and catching up with herself so well. You'll soon have her home, and your life as a family together will be able to start.

Goodness, isn't God nice!!!!

Julie Nickerson said...

OH MY GOODNESS!!! look at that smile in the first photo!

She looks SO BIG and SO CUTE!!!!

Praying she will be home soon and Praise God Tricia got to finally touch her precious baby girl without gloves.

Melody said...

That is the cutest little baby belly I have ever seen. :)

Way to go, Gwyneth! Keep on chuggin' and you'll be out with your mom and dad in no time.

Alice said...

What fabulous CHEEKS!!

MrsKennyD said...

Hello Lawrenson family! I just wanted to express my joy in all that the Lord has been doing in your lives! When I read that you would be baby-registering I cried tears of joy...being a first-time mom myself I know how special and exciting that time is for a couple. I pray that you are all abundantly blessed and that every single need (and hearts desire) would be met! I also had to send you this link for a cute onesie for Gwyneth (although it will be way too big for her at least for awhile). I thought of you guys as soon as I saw it (I thought I remember reading that Meka is a girl...just click on the link and you'll see why I say that)!

Rene said...

Look at those cheeks! She's beautiful, as always. It won't be long now that she's home where she belongs.

BTW, her current weight and length are the same as when my preemie son was born at 33 weeks. It's funny how they look so big and so small at the same time!

Rene

Roehrman said...

My first thought was She is Fat! Praise the Lord! I am so glad we can think this never thought we would beings she was so small!

sarah. said...

Momofgirls said...

PLEASE sign up for an on line registry too...we Gwyneth fans want to help get her all set up!

Erin said...

She is so precious! I love her smiles and that belly! :) I looked, because I think you have posted it before, but could you remind us if there is a weight she needs to obtain in order to go home? Sorry to make you repeat yourself if you have already mentioned it! Thanks!

Rob & Amy said...

Nate and Tricia-
I cannot believe how much she is grown. I compared this weeks picture to her 2 week picture, and it is astounding!!! Gwyneth put on weight, because she can't wait to go home with the rest of her family ;)

So happy for you guys this week!!!

jamie said...

I just went back and watched "Hands on a Miracle". 1 lb,6oz. Wow, how far everyone has come. Rereading through that time, who would have guessed things would turn out so darned well. Once again, I have to say, thanks for allowing us to share in y'all's journey, Nate. Just such a marvel.
God Bless you all

Hugs from El Paso,

We are so happy for you all, just think Nate it won't be long and you'll have 2 girls running around in the house, forget trying to get into the bathroom buddy!
God has blessed you real good and we rejoice with you.

It's funny to me that she only weighs 4lbs, but looks SO big!!! She sure has made a HUGE difference since she first arrived!

I haven't made many comments, although I have followed this since before Gwyneth was born and all I can say is "Thank you Jesus!!" I'm crying for the wonderful blessings you are receiving. Thank you Jesus!!

candidchatter said...

She's sooo cute!! Aw, I am so happy for you all so so so happy. I love the pix of her and Tricia. I'll bet Tricia let that kiss on her sweet baby's face linger for hours. Wow!! Good for all of you. Your story is bringing such joy to my heart.

(((Hugs to All of You)))

As a mom of a NICU graduate, I am IMPRESSED. Gwyneth looks incredible! Great size, wonderful weight gain, fantastic color--she just looks very very healthy. Thank you for sharing your journey...seeing both your girls turnaround is awe-inspiring. May you and Tricia have your baby home soon!

Thinking of you in Virginia

God bless!!

I stand in awe of the work of our Father in Gwyneth and Tricia's lives. He is truly the Great Physican and HE has taken such grea, loving care of his girls - no surprise of course!
Gwyn looks chubby and happy!
I am eagerly awaiting the day you say she is coming home --- and you thought the day Tricia came home was emotional... you just wait!! I cried the whole 45 minute drive from the hospital to our house! But they were tears of joy!

Look at that double chin! LOVE IT!
Praise the Lord that she's growing so well.
Continuing to pray that you'll all be home together soon.
What a walking miracle your sweet family is! Thanks for continuing to be such an awesome testimony for the Lord!

It totally looks like the mini pug is in her crib with her. I am just so happy for all three of you. I want to tell everyone all the blessings that you have experienced and then I remember that just about everyone I know doesn't even know who you are. Of course if they check out my blog they can see that I have blogged about you. Stay strong and fight hard.

Deb said...

Look at that double chin! That is fabulous! She is looking great. We'll be praying that she'll be "home" with her Mama and Daddy so soon!

Scarlet & Gray said...

Way to go Gwyneth! She's jealous that her mom gets to go home and is working her way there! When was her original due date? If I calculate right, I'm thinking it is around this time! Still praying...

Carol said...

Do I detect some rolls? Love the double chin! Exciting stage! Thrilled that she's growing! Thrilled that Mom is doing so well!
Hallelujah!

Laura said...

Asher did the same thing after he hit the big 3lb mark! That is when he got the nickname "chunky monkey" because he exploded from 3-5lbs in just weeks! I am so thrilled to hear about all of Gwyneth and Tricia's progress. God truly is working in miraculous ways through your family! Continuing to pray for all of you and I look forward to pictures of the three of you at home very soon! :)
