Happy Baby

Still waiting for Gwyneth to go into surgery. My parents are hanging with her now in the pre-op room, and Tricia and I are getting ready to head over there now.

This was Gwyneth this morning, sans feeding tube!

and now, i can say, without a doubt, a nose people will want. seriously. when they go in for their nose job, they will say, "I want my nose to look like Gwyneth's please." (and everyone will of course know who they are talking about, since she is practically famous and all. praying for surgery....

Prayers for Gwyneth--and her whole family too--it's probably harder on them than on her!!

Eliza said...

Awwww...I'll be thinking about you guys--please do let us know when Gwyneth is out of surgery so that all of her Internet aunties and uncles can breathe a sigh of relief! Also, what is she having done today? You've been kind of vague and if you don't want to say then that's cool, but I was just wondering...

Kathryn said...

Look at that big girl! Oh my goodness. God's blessings and peace!

seekingfaithfulness said...

I have been trying to decide who I think she looks like (based solely on pictures, of course.) With this picture, I think her eyes look like Tricia's, but her face looks like Nate's.

Praying for you all today! You're doing a GREAT job at parenting.

Love, Holly

God is amazing and has done wonderful things for your family... I wish you continued good luck - I will say a prayer for Gwyneths Surgery...And that you can get prepared for that gorgeous girls homecoming... on another note- I love all your photos...

No better way to describe the word "angel." Also, she is definitely daddy's little girl.

God has blessed your family!
