WOW! They have nice chairs AND they allow you to use your cell phone! Hope that doesn't meet their wait is longer than our hospitals'. :p

Gwyneth is soooo cute. I'm amazed at how interactive she is! She's just like my girl, no cell phones or computers allowed for Daddy when he's holding her!

Thanks for sharing!

Debra said...

Gwyneth is so cute. She looks like quite a Daddy's Girl already. Were you boring her in the end? lol

Nathan - I hope you take this in the way it's meant - you are one big goofball! I'll bet it is so much fun to hang out with you. Gwyneth is so cute and she has the most adorable smile. You and your family are always in my prayers.

Julie Nickerson said...

I can tell she is a daddy's girl by they way she looks at you.

Thanks for sharing.

Paul and Christy said...

That was fun. I just love to see how active she is. It is so amazing to see her now. Most people would look at this as an inconvenience in life. I like it that you are looking at it from a spending time with your girls. You are still all 3 awesome in my book. I haven't said that for a while, so I wanted to remind you!!!

Too cute!!! :)

Andrea said...

She is so sweet!!! I can tell she loves her daddy!!!

carieelena said...

Super adorable! funny how she was trying to mimic your faces at the end!

Jester 5 said...

cute video, your video made me laugh and remember the good times with our kids to which I say. . .Nate this is an early "I told you so" My husband was always sticking his tongue out at our kids. As a "loving" wife I would tell him to stop. He would laugh and shrug it off. It wasn't until about 2-3 years later, when our son started doing it that I was able to say "See, I told you to stop that".

Catherine said...

What a fun video! not sure if I enjoyed gwyneth immitating daddy or daddy immitating gwyneth better? Precious!

Lisa said...

AWWWWWW, she looks great.

christi28 said...

what a cutie pie! i love how she just watches you! adorable!

Becky Bowen said...

Tricia and Nate - thank you for sharing the many blessings in your lives. I will continue to earnestly pray for those who offer unsolicited advice. Your blog is a place for me to pray, give thanks, and praise to the Lord. I have been a Christian since I was seven years old, but I have grown more spiritually since I started following your unbelievable story.

Sonja said...

Oh how wonderful a memory this will be. :) Daddy's little girl just smiling at him sticking his tongue out. :) She is so precious. Everytime I look at the blog each day I can only smile at the sweet little "rose" God has blessed you with. Let Trisha know I am praying for her and for you also Nate. God Bless you all.

Carrie said...

How sweet! Aren't you glad you have good company while waiting?

Cody Turner said...

Well no we know where she gets her funny faces from. Monkey see, monkey do. :)

Sue said...

She was definitely keeping an eye on you daddy!

amy said...

i think my heart just melted onto the floor. she blows me away. my dear friend gave birth at 25 weeks gestation 2 months ago. i can only pray that her little man will make it and be as happy as little gwyneth.

Ann said...

Gwyneth makes the cutest faces! I love how she just freezes and stares at you when you start making faces back! What love!

And hey, we have the same cell phone haha!

The Bear and The Bug said...

How sweet! What a good daddy you are. She looks like she's having fun in the midst of waiting -- what could be better.

MyAwesomeOliveShoots said...

You are a very good daddy! Lord bless you and keep you wherever you are. God is using you!

Kathy said...

That put a BIG smile on my face..oh how I miss those days.
Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Froggymama said...

You have a wiggleworm baby too! Froggy (thus the name) couldn't sit still for a second. I think it's a sign of great strength! It's so nice to see her in action. Just wait until she's 2, you'll never sit down again! Much love, Elise

Jess said...

She sure is getting big already!! Waiting rooms aren't so much fun... you guys really have made your own fun. Must be more fun that sitting there by yourself. :)

Twice Blessed said...

How much does your sweet girl weigh now?

Kim said...

Such a Daddy's Little Girl!!!!

Mom to Tate said...

She is so sweet. Thank you for sharing so much of your life with us.

MrsKruse said...

Me thinks Miss Gwyneth is trying to get you to avoid your cell phone and spend all your time paying attention to her! :-D

What a cutie!

Karen said...

please pray for the tillman family as their baby girl undergoes a heart transplant at this very minute. http://www.carepages.com/ServeCarePage?cpn=TTMaMa&uniq=650182&ipc=customupdate

Thoughts and Things said...

What a treat!!! I never had so much fun in a waiting room before now!

RoseGirl said...

As always - too cute!

I have a question, in the vein of what came first the chicken or the egg...

Are you imitating Gwyneth or is she imitating you?? You both make great faces, particularly at each other.

Blessings,

LaTricia said...

What a wonderful way for you to continue bonding and loving your precious girl while in the waiting room! One of the best times you've had waiting I'm sure :)

JUST A MOM said...

THAT IS THE SWEETEST THING I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME THANKS FOR SHARING... oh caps agian darn it sorry.....

Gina said...

If that doesn't leave a smile on your face nothing will! :)

Amyb99 said...

That is just so very sweet!! Gwyneth is just...adorable!

kimm said...

It is so cool to see Gwenyth moving around! She seems to be right on track for her adjusted age. Tricia and I were due the same week and I ended up going a week over, after almost delivering at 29w then fighting to keep him in. She and my little man make the same faces and appear to have the same motor skills at this point... amazing!

Sara said...

It was so much fun watching the 2 of you interact! I especially enjoyed the H-U-G-E yawn where she almost caught a few flies. No, the best part was when she smiled & laughed at you! Aw, my heart is going pitter patter. What a sweetie she is! Thanks for sharing.

elizabeth engelhardt creations said...

She is getting SO BIG!! I have been keeping track, but haven't been commenting too much...You guys are looking good and Tricia is still in our prayers.

Marsmile said...

Gosh, I love seeing Gwyn move and interact with you! She is beautiful and such a sweetie pie! I think I see more of Tricia in Gwyn now as she grows. :-)

Thanks for sharing! Glad you all are well.
