White Rose Blooming (6 Months)

Happy Birthday Gwyneth Rose! 6 months worth of pictures to show how much you've grown!

("Brighter Than Sunshine" by Aqualung)

If you'd like to say "Happy Birthday" to Gwyneth Rose with more than words (and she totally appreciates the words!), please consider donating to my Personal CF Great Strides Fundraising Goal (click "click to donate" at the bottom of the linked page) to help insure that the three of us also get to spend many more birthdays, healthy and together.

As always, you can watch all 20 of the CFHusband videos on our Youtube Page.

Thanks!

Nate

Jordan said...

now I know that the monthly pug pictures were only for when she was in the hospital, but I would loveeee to see how big she is next to the pug now. I mean, 6 months is a big milestone, and I'm sure others want to see it too :)

Kelly said...

Happy birthday to your little princess!! It is so neat to see just how far she has come and how much she has grown!! I would also love to see her next to the pug!

Twinkletoes said...

Love it! Love the ending too!

Kelly said...

You forget just how little she was until you see pictures charting her growth from those early days.

Just one thing - where is the pug these days? I bet she would dwarf it now! ;-)

Cutest Baby EVER!!!!!! Congratulations to you and your stunning wife!! As a long time lurker, I am ashamed I haven't logged in until now, but please know that my five year old (and myself)have the three of you in our prayers every night. Ellie always asks to check in on Baby Gwyneth and her pretty Mommy and her "fuzzy" Daddy!

You guys ROCK!

Happy six month birthday, Gwyneth!

You have been through a lot in your first six months, and along the way you have won the hearts of so many as we have watched your daily struggles and progress. You are very blessed with the love of God, family, and friends. Many people – like me - who do not know you or your parents personally, have become invested in praying for you and keeping up with your daily progress. What a wonderful thing it is to be part of the family of Christ! We pray that you will serve Him all of your life.

She has quite a Daddy and Mommy. What an awesome scrapbook you have created for her. She is really going to be WOW'D when she gets older and looks at all the work both of you have done in creating this blog with all the pics and videos! God has truly blessed your family. Psalm 37:4

God Bless You All.

Julie said...

Wow, I'd almost forgotten how much hair Gwyneth had when she was born! Thanks for sharing the pics, I always love to see/hear how things are progressing.

Can't wait to hear news about Tricia's treatment, praising God for His hand in this!

Bridget said...

Too cute! Happy 1/2 birthday!

Breathe Hope said...

Happy 6 months Gwyneth!

She is gorgeous. I love reading the story of your amazing family. Also, a belated happy anniversary to you and Tricia. I just celebrated my first anniversary with my husband. We had our share of struggles but we have also been really blessed this year. Reading about your story as a CF Husband has been so inspirational to me, as a CF Wife.. just wanted to let you know. Your family is in my prayers!

Lesli said...

Huge congratulations to the whole family!! We truly serve such an awesome God!!!!

I would also LOVE a pug pick!

Jen said...

You have such a beautiful baby girl! Having been where you're at (having 2 micropreemies, 1 angel and 1 surviving, plus a not quite 28 weeker), I can so relate to what you've been through the past 6months! I'm so glad that Gwyneth is doing SO well!

P.S. I wish I had your photography skills (and camera)! LOL.

She looks absolutely amazing!!! Wow I can't believe she is already 6 months old :o). I was sort of thinking as well that at the end you would have a picture of her and her pug, so we could see her growth.

What a miracle!!

Ellen said...

Watching this video, having followed your story since December, has made me realize how much I have fallen in love with your family. Your honesty and humor and perspective through the incredible medical odds of both of your girls has been inspirational to me. I was already a sinner saved by grace, already an organ donor and already a lover of cutie pie babies before I stumbled upon your blog but my understanding of just how big God is and just how mysteriously He works has been stretched again and again as I sign on to see the latest update and to smile at the latest pictures. Still praying in Delaware and looking forward to what the next 6 months and 6 years and 60 years hold for your family! May God bless you richly as you continue to seek Him!

Ronda said...

I'm not computer savvy, but I just had to share what a miracle Gwyneth Rose is (and your wife). I've followed your blogg since before Gwyneth was born. I know God has something awesome planned for her life and all those she will touch, not matter what.
