Farrah and Jed said...

Awe Tricia got her hair cut...Looks great...

And coming home WOW...That is Awesome!!!!!!!

Eliza said...

Oh that second one is my new FAVORITE PICTURE EVER, look what a little chubbster Gwyneth looks like, finishing off her milk, and her mother such a pro already--I always did figure Tricia would be one of those "intuitive" moms--I know I was and I can't imagine being any other way but apparently some are not and I feel bad for them because to me it really was just natural :)

Missy said...

love the last two pictures. the last one tho is as tho gwyn is saying "enough all ready" have a great evening!

lareyes said...

They both look so beautiful and HEALTHY!! So exciting that Gwyneth might be able to come home tomorrow! Amazing!

Tricia looks fabulous too! Praying for a smooth transition into "full time" parenthood! You will both do fabulously!

Katie said...

These pictures are just so cute. I love the one where Tricia is looking at Gwyneth while holding her. Very sweet :)

Sheila said...

Hi! My name is Stacie and I found your blog through Jessica Claire's Website. I just wanted to tell you your wife and daughter are absolutely beautiful and amazing. Congratulations on such a miracle. My husband's sister had CF, so I am all too familiar with how horrible it can be. She too received a double lung transplant, that however was 13 years ago. She passed on soon after; she was 17. I am so glad that you and Trish got your beautiful miracle and blessing. I watched your YouTube videos and laughed and cried through almost all of them. Thank you for sharing your story and I am going to be a faithful reader/follower!

Beverly said...

I hope all goes well and Gwyneth gets to go home tomorrow. I have so enjoyed seeing her grow to such a cute little girl. She looks like you Nate, you know. So happy for the three of you. Loved the photos taken by the photographer...so wonderful.

Rebecca said...

Awesome! Who knew that feeding a baby could be so captivating! :)

Deb said...

Beautiful! I love the red nails... and wont it be fun to paint Gwyneth's nails too (you know- when she grows out of the fingers in her mouth *always* phase? I love how she looks straight at the camera and then is just done with having her picture taken by the end.
Praying for everything to go smoothly for tomorrow! I know how exciting this is!!!

everg said...

oh my, she is just the cutest!!!!

Elena Manwaring said...

Man, you've gotten some great pictures recently. I can't wait for you to get little Gwenyth home. It will be so wonderful for you all to just be you, at home, as a family. Happy late birthday and Mother's day to Tricia. Best of luck as always!

Tamara said...

AWESOME! INCREDIBLY AWESOME! I am sure you guys have already been but the cathedral on Duke's Campus is STUNNING! If you haven't been...walk in, don't look anywhere but ahead and then halfway down the aisle (middle) turn around and look up...WOW at the sight!!! Love the pictures by the way!

Andy Lawrenson said...

Fantastic!

Larissa said...

These are great-I bet it was a very happy birthday!

lbstr-quadrille said...

I love that first picture! The time when a baby is eating but between asleep and awake, it is just so precious! She looks so peaceful. Tricia has earned every bit of that awesomeness with what she has been through and it is so nice to see!

cuteinnocence said...

Great pictures! Gwenyth is beautiful! She's almost the same size that my son was at birth (4lbs 15oz - although he dropped after a bit to 4lbs 9oz). Such a tiny baby, but she's grown so much. Thank God for her progress and for parents who believe in the sanctity and value of life! I love the Claire pictures too! You and Tricia look great together! :) I'm excited for you all - taking Gwenyth home tomorrow (or today as it's now midnight)!
BTW - Good luck with the event going on this Saturday! That's my son's 2nd birthday!

Heather said...

That last picture of Gwneyth melts my heart. Brings back so many memories of when my 5-year-old was that tiny. Now he is a little man. Time flies, enjoy ever little moment.

Take care,
Heather

Scott said...

Wow, what a gift for the Birthday Girl! New baby, new lungs and a new lease on life. Lord bless you guys!

Erika and Matt said...

What incredible pictures of your beautiful girls!! Thanks for sharing. Best wishes and prayers for a continued amazing week! How awesome to have a birthday and mother's day and be taking home your miricle baby all in the same week!!!!!!!!!!! Love from IL!

allison said...

It's been incredible to see your baby girl growing up. I positively LOVE all the pictures...you have such a beautiful family. :) God is doing something great in your lives..."He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ."
I really cannot get over Gwenyth's cuteness! It took a while for me to even be able to imagine how tiny she is, but then a lady at our church recently had a 4 pound baby (full term) and I think that was when Gwenyth was hitting 2 or 3 pounds. I was just amazed at how God could work in such at tiny, tiny person. Your story has really encouraged me. You guys are incredible! I know you have your days and you don't share everything, but I'm so thankful for your honesty on here because I think it helps everyone to realize that this is all real. Not just another story, but it's real, and it's happening right now. I get so excited when I read about a new milestone Tricia or Gwenyth has reached. I feel like I kinda know you guys!
To God be the glory in all things!
