Kirschner Family Vacation (Day 7)

I had to work all day/evening on Thursday and Friday, so I missed all of the fun, but here are a few pics from Saturday, the last full day at the beach house with everyone.

There are a few pictures that your baby looks like mine. (Mine is just a bit bigger, even though she is younger)

Heather said...

Oh my goodness! That dress! And that tongue! Little Miss G is getting so big! What a beautiful, big girl!!

And on another front - those photos, the last two, father w/son on shoulders (I assume) and sweet little peanut looking into the distance, are BEAUTIFUL!!!

Thanks for sharing your beach vacation, can't tell you how wonderful it was to live vicariously through your family, I'm don't get vacation until the end of August and the beach is my favorite vacation spot. Maybe one day I can even live on the beach.

Kim said...

Oh my! Look at that little tongue and those aware eyes! She is getting quite the little personality going there!

Mary said...

More fun family photos. And look at Ms. Gwyneth in the cutest little sundress. Thanks for sharing your family with us Nate.

What great memories for all of you!
Most of my favorite childhood memories were of our summer vacations to the Outer Banks...there is nothing like staying on the beach!

I love the pictures of Gwyneth in her sun dress!

Thank you for sharing with all of us!

Teresa Dunkin said...

Thanks for sharing the beach pictures...brings back memories from our week at Nags Head 6/7-6/14. Gwyneth looks so precious, especially in that darling sundress. It is wonderful seeing a large family spending such wonderful time together. I thank God that you, Tricia and Gwyneth were able to be there, and not stuck in a hospital. I continue to pray for you all.

Kristen said...

Oh, I love Gwyneth in her little dress...so cute!

John & Michelle said...

Wow, look at Gwyneth! Who could guess the shaky start she had in life? She looks like a regular baby - in the nicest possible way of course!!!
I see the tube has gone - is she oxygen free now

What a BEAUTIFUL family you have!!!!

tripleblessings said...

Gwyneth is so cute in her sundress, awake or asleep. She has sure grown lately. Please could we have more details on her health and her weight and how she is doing? Also an update on Trish?
Glad you've all had such a nice family holiday. It must be so good to do normal family stuff again.
Prayers continue for all of you...

Kari said...

Great pictures! I noticed Gwyneth's nose hose is gone. (That's what we called it when it was a daily thing in our life.) Glad to see her growing every day!

Angela R. said...

Love the pictures!! What a beautiful family. So great to see everyone happy and having a great time! Gwyneth got so big and looks adorable in that little dress!! Sorry that the week had to come to an end, but I hope Tricia and you all enjoyed your time together as a family. You guys sure needed it!!

Hugs

Kelly said...

What has that adorable little Miss Gwyneth done with her o2? Did she decide those nasal specs are sooo last season and didn't match her pretty dress or just giving them a break from working their magic on her lil lungs?

Rebecca said...

Such great photos... :)

I almost didn't recognize Gwyneth. She is getting so BIG!

Blessings From Above said...

Love the pictures! Gwyneth is going to have such a wonderful childhood with all her cousins. What a blessing!

BTW, I noticed that Gwyneth does not have the nasal cannula on in the pictures. Way to go Gwyneth! :)

The Pelhams said...

What a great week! My favorite pic is of all the families on the beach together!! Those were awesome! Is Gwenyth off of her oxygen? I noticed she didn't have it on in a few of the pics!!

KimberlyL said...

Lack of cannula? a permanent thing I hope? she's so big! the other kids in Tricia's family are cute as bugs as well. I hope the smoke hasn't bothered everyone during their fun week too much!

Ree said...

OMG...she is getting SOOO big!! She is a beauty!!

marcia said...

Just have to love all of those chubby little arms and legs on Gwyneth!! What a picture of wonderful health!!!!

Brenda said...

what great memories you will have through pictures to share with G. when she gets older! I love the children pictures. They are so precious. And your little white rose is getting so big! God Bless

Carol said...

Gwyneth is growing and growing! Glad all the family get to get together.

Kristen Hamilton said...

I'm glad to see that your nephew is being outfitted in the appropriate Philadelphia Sports attire :)

The picture of Gwenyth asleep in her sundress is amazing! If someone didn't know your story they would never guess that she was a micropremie. Awesome :)

Princess Bishop said...

I just found your blog and what an amazing story. I will be adding your BLOG to my frequent reading list. As a former NICU nurse and someone who is truly inspired by stories like yours, I will keep you guys close to my heart and in my prayers. You are an amazing family! Hugs.......

marshiemallows said...

That last picture is just so sweet! I went over to your photo blog and looked at everything and the Lord has certainly given you a talent in photography...the poses, angles and everything you catch on film...it's great!
We are traveling to the USA for a couple of weeks! :) I think we'll have internet access where we are staying so we'll keep checking in!
Gwyneth is just so cute and bigger each picture you take...we pray for her and you and Tric each day.
love,
The Lockwoods

Emilie said...

So nice to see Gwyneth in a cute dress in the summer warmth.

Your pics remind me of our summer weeks on Oak Island, NC where we rented beach houses every year my whole childhood. Lovely.

Still thinking of you in Maine.

Molly said...

she sure is getting big!!

Scott said...

I'm so glad you guys could have the big vacation with your families. Gwyneth is getting so big! We are still praying for you all everyday!

Tricia Moran said...

Hi Tricia and Nate :) Just wanted to say that our hearts are glad that you got some quality time together with family - nothing quite like it. My family lives in five different countries and our get togethers are rare but always memorable. Last time was in Ireland three years ago. Treasure these times, as I'm sure you already do. There is nothing like having a loving, supportive family when you are going through something like you guys have gone through. Nothing in life can replace it. We continue to pray for all of you and Gwyneth is so beautiful - she looks so content. Take care on the next part of your journey.
With love, prayer and hope,
Tricia and Family xoxoxox

Looks like the family vacation was a complete success! Love the great pictures!

RoseGirl said...

Okay...I think Gwyneth has got to be one of the cutest babies in the world - and I am not even related to you - LOL. Anyway - great pictures, Nate. I think you could truly have another career on your hands - if you ever wanted to!

Blessings,

Gorgeous kids... love the photos...

EMG said...

Hey Nate, where in Nags Head were you guys on the beach? My husband and I were just down there until Sunday for vacation and rented a beach house in nags head across from applebees on Mall Rd (or st, or something like that HAHA)...When we were leaving yesterday we drive by the Nags head church by jockies ridge and I thought instantly of you guys!! I wonder how close I was to you all when we were there!

Jen said...

Wow, your baby looks so big and healthy! And no more oxygen? She is adorable!!!

elizabeth engelhardt creations said...

Ok, that dress that Gwyneth is wearing is absolutely TOO CUTE! Glad to see everyone's having fun!

e_susan94 said...

Absolutely beautiful family! Thanks for sharing something so personal with us. I bumped into your BIL J (NJ) at the food store with my 2 boys and he looks great. It has been at least 7 yrs since I sat with his wife J watching our husbands play basketball. Little did I know that she had a wonderful sister Tricia that I didn't meet or know about but now I know so much about. we might steal that photo on the beach idea if I can only get my 2 brothers together. If you can do it with more siblings we should be able to with 2. :)

Gwyneth is growing so fast!!! :) I just love that dress!
