Eliza said...

Is it just me or does Gwyneth look more and more like Tricia the bigger she gets? Both of them look like they've put on some much-needed weight, and Tricia is RADIANT--she looks so happy to be holding her chubby little baby! You look so proud of them both--and you should be!

Justine said...

What a beautiful big girl! Congrats to you and your wonderful family. I know you hear this a lot, but my daughter was a micro preemie too. She weighed 1 Pound 3 ounces, and is 4 months old. We brought her home a few weeks ago, so our little girls grew in the NICU together:) Your blog kept my spirits high, when I hit my lows. Thank you, you are an amazing person!

Jennifer said...

The last couple pictures of her you can really tell her face is filling out and she is gaining weight. How exciting to see her thriving!
Smiles!
