tricia's in our prayers. hope she gets some good rest and gets to come dress her poor daughter soon. :)

Michelle said...

From one mother... to another (daddy) breathe in life's moments and know God is good.. even when we can't hold ourselves up anymore, HE holds us as sweetly and gently as you hold that precious baby of yours.. Hoping and praying for restful sleep, healing, and a most perfect day.. everyday.. Thanks so much for sharing

JW said...

So precious! Nothing like a fresh, clean baby to put a smile on your face!

Tricia is in our thoughts and prayers--

ajjordan said...

The three of you are such a testament to the love of the Lord for I know it is by His Grace that you are able to face each day with a smile because of your faith in His plan. We are teaching our kindergarten Sunday school class about determination and following God's plan even when it is hard. When I reflect on the word determination you three always come to mind. Know that your lives are a testimony of His love and that He is reaching many through you. We are praying for you!

Paige said...

Okay, so you made me cry and smile at the same time. You are so good at that.

Just darling.

Carol said...

Very, very, cute, and sweet. I almost could smell that wonderful smell of freshly washed baby!

Marie said...

Oh my godness, She looks just like you, I am praying for Tricia, hope you and the baby have a good night.

maggie said...

Tricia is so blessed to have you. I hope she is having a good night and gets to come home very soon.

marcia said...

Are you going to tell us how much that cute baby weighed this afternoon? And what wonderful things her doctors had to say about her? Actually, I hope you are both sound asleep right now, and you will tell us in the morning! Praying for a good night of rest for all three of you!

Kristi said...

Ok. That was quite possibly the sweetest, most adorable thing I've ever seen in my life.

Nope, I'm positive it was.

Nold Family said...

That video was so precious and sweet! Your family has so much love, it's beautiful. I hope Tricia is well and home with you all very soon.

Becky said...

Seriously. I have read every post since way back when...

And THAT was the most sweet, precious post EVER!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you here in Lynchburg.

Joyful Mom said...

I think it's cute how Gwyneth is busy checking out her hands! So adorable!

Hugs to all of you as you wait for Tricia to get better. We'll add an extra prayer at bedtime tonight.

Hugs from El Paso,
Karla and Family

Tracy said...

Ok, I think that was one of the sweetest things I've ever seen.

Nathan, your love for your girls is so transparent. Tricia, I hope you get back in your loving husband's arms soon. Baby girl Gywneth, you are so big, strong and beautiful. Happy 9mths!

May tomorrow be a wonderful day for all of you.

Marsmile said...

Awwww, soooo sweet and precious! Gwyn is such an adorable lil babe! :-)

I'm sure that made Tricia's night! Hoping she sleeps well and is comfortable tonight.

Nate, do get a good night's rest as well.

Take care and thinking of you all,
Marissa

Jen said...

Thanks Nate!!! That was just wonderful! I hope you both sleep well.

Tricia - I know that ICU is taking great care of you and I hope that you sleep well and wake up on the mend.

Prayers and love going out to all 3 of you.

Thank you for continuing to share your lives with us.

Loves and Hugs

Ginger said...

Dude she looks just like her daddy! That was the best video, I about cried!

Jan Scholl said...

I have always been fascinated by hands-and to watch Gwyneth stare at her own hands was so engrossing. I go to the park and watch the squirrels use their hands too. Or the zoo---odd to some but hands made us human. And mine need lotion so go nite nite kiddies.

Lisa said...

Thats was so sweet , you are an amzing Husband and Father Nate ! Hope you all have a god night

justdawn said...

That was absolutely precious!

I am praying for Tricia to get well so she can get back to her sweet baby and goofy husband:)

What a sweet husband you are! Gwyneth is really starting to look like her mommy. Sorry, Nate!

Hope you all rest well tonight.

You are such a good daddy and husband. I am truly amazed at your strength and positive attitude. The love the 3 of you have is so beautiful. Though we are from different religions, i will be praying for all of you on this eve on Yom Kippor. Prayer is Prayer.

Sneaky Momma said...

Sniff, sniff! What a beautiful little girl and her awesome daddy!

Rebekah said...

Oh my goodness, she is just too precious. This was so much fun to watch and ooh and ahh over. :) I love how she is studying her hands.

Also, I can totally see the resemblance between you two, and not just in the hair (or lack thereof). :)

fuzzandfuzzlet said...

Too cute. Hope the 3 of you are getting some quality sleep right now.

Lorri said...

You are loved. We are praying. Keep that beautiful 9 month old close ... She's gorgeous.

She is sweet as pie!

Praying for Tricia tonight.

Sonja said...

Nate, Precious Husband and Daddy. Thank you for sharing such a sweet moment. My prayers are with you and your girls.

Lord, Bless this family today and always. Heal Tricia so that she may come home and raise the sweet Gwynth the way you would have her too. Be with Nate as he cares for their daughter in her absence.
Be with all of them as they praise you and look to you for strength and guidance and healing. In your precious, sweet name. Amen.

Thank you for making my morning. That is the most precious video. I laughed when you had the "diaper" issue. My husband would always call me for that one.
I hope that Tricia is better and out of the hospital soon.

(((((( HUGS ))))))

Kristin said...

What priceless treasure for Tricia! I am sure it was some of the best medicine that she received yesterday!

Carrie said...

Tears and prayers coming your way...

Kate, Randy, Alek, Hank, and Cash said...

Uhh Nate I could only wish I was as talented as you with the videos you make. Randy has been in the hospital 4 times in the last couple months back at home in upstate NY. We sure wish we were closer to Duke as the docs and nurses are so amazing and no Randy best. He is recovering from bacterial Pneumonia and also developed a virus, we hope to get him home soon. Your daughter continues to put a smile on our face and we are praying for Tricia to get out of ICU and back out of the hospital.
SMILE

Erica said...

I have no sound on this computer, and it still brought tears to my eyes. You are a wonderful Daddy and husband. Love the pants part! Lots of prayers from Tricia's good health!!!

Julie said...

I can only imagine how tough it is for you all to be apart again. Praying it's only for a very short time!

I noticed Gwyneth didn't have her oxygen - is she totally off of it now? That would be great news!

The Smith's said...

That was way too precious :) Even made my bad morning better seeing sweet baby Gwyneth. (My babies are not babies anymore)

Amyb99 said...

So very sweet! Continuing to hold you all in my thoughts and prayers. Get well soon, Tricia!

Princess Avanaar said...

Hey Nate ...I've been keeping up with your blog for months now, but never posted a comment. After seeing this wonderful video you made, I just had to say that that is one of the most loving and caring things you could have done for your wife! She is lucky to have such a great man in her life and you are both blessed with such a cute little girl!! =D

Much love for you all,
Jessa

Erika said...

There is so much love in your family and you see it here. One of the cutest things I have ever seen. Hope you all had sweet dreams.

Julie said...

How sweet! You are an amazing dad and Tricia is an amazing mom. Prayers for you all!

Judy said...

My three year old was just watching that with me. He asked me who that baby was and I told him it's a baby named Gwyneth and she used to be sick and Jesus made her better. And my three year old said, "Jesus is a nice friend! He loves to make people better when they're sick."
So we're praying that our "nice friend" Jesus will make Gwyneth's mommy better too!

Elly said...

This is the cutest sweetest thing I've ever seen. It made me cry. I'm praying for the Lord to watch over your family, and it's so good to know that He is.

Stacie said...

That is the cutest, sweetest thing I have ever seen!

LoveLladro said...

GACK that was so freaking cute!

Is she sleeping in the papasan??? My son slept there until he was 5 months old, and he wasn't even a preemie... he just loved it!

Bird On A Wire said...

without a doubt my favorite of your recent videos. Precious little Gwyneth Rose looks more and more like Daddy every day! You marked that child! Hope Tricia is feeling better today and home again soon!

Julie said...

That was precious!

Rachael and Travis said...

That's cute!

Stacy said...

So Sweet!! Gweneth is a splitting image of you, Nate.

Happy Birthday Tricia (I'm assuming it's your birthday that Nate mentioned.)

Praying and sending get well wishes, too.

Stacy

Stacy said...

Sorry I spelled Gwyneth's name wrong the first time around!

Lindsey said...

That's the sweetest video!! Don't worry my hubby can't ever dress my kids either. The clothes are either too big, to small or they don't really go together. Ha!

Grammie said...

Such sweet, gentle love. Amazing.

Prayers for your wife...and hugs to you.

Blessings From Above said...

So sweet!!!

Jennifer said...

That was beautiful! You did make me a little nervous with that big 'ol burp that she might just spew all over your keyboard though.
Smiles!

Laurie said...

I am just amazed whenever I see this little miracle named Gwyneth in action. What a testimony of Gods Grace and Goodness. Praying for Tricia to completely be healed and for all of you to be headed back home soon. Love you all.

beanieb said...

Nate, you are the best Daddy in the world! I'm glad Tricia can focus on getting better knowing you are taking such good care of Gwyneth. I think she may be the next Subway spokesperson by the looks of those pants! Praying Tricia is on the mend and will soon be back with the two of you so you can finish all your shopping for the new house. Thanks for keeping us posted.

melissa said...

Oh that was just beautiful. Tricia I'm praying that you get to feeling better soon so you can get back to your beautiful family. God has blessed all three of you. Take care.

Emma and Mommy said...

That was sweet. My 4 year old youngest twin watched it and said "Mommy can we get one of them" and I said "a Gwyenth?" and she said "oh please Mommy I would feed her every day!" Like she is a puppy or something. :-)

My little girl loves her. She wants to look at her pics all the time. I don't blame her, she is a cutie pie!

heidi said...

I haven't commented before, I don't think... but I have been following your blog for a long time.

I just wanted to say, as a mother, that was just about the best gift ever! What a sweet tribute to your love for your daughter, and for your wife.

We are praying for Tricia's healing, and homecoming again.

Jennifer said...

Too precious for words! Goodjob swinging it on your own. We're praying that Tricia is feeling better soon and gets home to you both!

Walker said...

That is Quiet possibly the sweetest little video i've ever seen. Gosh* that was cute. My 5yr. was watching it with me & she wanted to know (when she saw the big pants on Cute-T baby) if those were "Your" pants Dad! LOL! Yeah, I laughed too, I told her they couldn't be yours... they had pink polkas on them! ;)
Hope your beautiful wife is better soon! I'm praying for you both!
Blessings,
Keisha

What a sweet video! I hope Tricia was able to watch it and it made her smile.

Faith said...

Sink baths rule! And the burp was so hilarious...the music is so sweet and innocent..you two looking all sweet..thanks for sharing.

rita from georgia said...

I have kept up with your blog for a long time. Don't remember how I originally found it. Praise God I did. This is an unbiased comment, but seriously I have never saw I child look more like her Dad than Gwyneth does you. It is hilarious.
Mimi from Georgia

Joy H said...

That is the sweetest thing ever -- more prayers for Tricia!

Lil' Chris' Mom said...

Too adorable! I loved it! I'm sure Tricia did too=)
I hope you keep them coming:)

Sarah said...

That was great! I think you should do a video with you compying Gwyneth like you did for a few minutes. That was so hilarious, so funny when her eys are looking everywhere and you were doing th e same thing. Priceless.

Diana said...

That was the SWEETEST thing I have ever seen!!
You get the GOOD HUSBAND award for the year!!

Cathy said...

The sweetest most loving gift you can give her mommy! Thanks for sharing with all of us.

Aunt Donna said...

Marge Sexton said...

Another beauty! Nate, you are an awesome Daddy and Husband. This alone should make Tricia feel better. Thanks for making my day too!
Prayers, Marge

Busy Momma said...

well that is just so cute! she is adorable

Momof2bz said...

Aww! That was so adorable. She is just so darn cute!

KaraP said...

Nate, that was so adorable. I am sure Tricia will feel much better after that adorable little vid. I know I do.

Carey said...

You are such a good Daddy! This gave me a good laugh...she's your twin!

Karie said...

That was just to sweet!!

T J said...

So very sweet.

But hey, those baby sleep sacks? They're supposed to be long. And some of them have "mittens" that fold over the hands, to keep baby from scratching him/herself at night. So you did just fine, I'm sure.

Jon and Deana said...

I am cracking up right now! I love the part about "not knowing what size" she is. When my husband dresses our daughter, things are always too big or too small. So, I think its just a daddy thing. We appreciate your efforts though. :o)

I'm glad Tricia is our of ICU. We are continuing to pray for her improved health and AWESOME test results!

Marty said...

Nate you are such a sweet and thoughtful man.

K said...

Long time lurker here...I just had to comment on that video...SUCH a great idea! SO cute! You're a great dad.

Julie Ramos said...

Those polka dotted pants made my day! Thanks for sharing the sweetness! Many hugs to all of you.

Froggymama said...

Okay, this made me cry, and I'm not even "the mommy." Sooo sweet.

AEM said...

BrunetteKoala said...

Cute, sweet and hilarious all in one!! Hee hee.

Good burp Miss Lawrenson!!

Emmie said...

Awww thanks so much for posting that Nate. I was feeling pretty down before I watched it and now am feeling so much happier! I bet Tricia loved it, its so warming to watch you guys, you three such a special bond. Oh and I LOVE the huge spotty pants haha! xxx

Lindsay said...

that's just too stinkin' sweet and adorable for words.

BreezieGirl said...

I had this saved in my Google Reader so I could watch it with sound... too too cute.

And is that sweet baby girl off the O2? Did I miss a memo??

Many continued prayers from San Diego...

Roxanne said...

Don't feel too bad about the clothes, Nate. You're a newbie.
I did home daycare years ago, and one morning a daddy brought his 3 yr old to my house around 6:30. His wife worked in the lab @ Norfolk General. When I took Ginny to the bathroom later, I realized she had on a pair of her mom's white nurse's hose. All I could think of all day was... what did the mommy have on??

amanda said...

I like this video, and I know Tricia does and she was so cute looking and playing with her little hands!

Brianna said...

That is the cutest thing ever. I love it. And the music adds so much to the video!! You guys are adorable.

Rambling Girl said...

Praying for all of you! What a beautiful little girl!

Dottie said...

I'm one of those quiet readers. I've been following your blog for some time and very rarely I comment. But, this video was absolutely precious! I can tell you are a fantastic husband and father. You are all beautiful and I continue to pray for all of you. I love to read your blog too as an inspirational reminder. God Bless you all.
