Party!

Actually, just cake, but it was still fun! I snuck out this morning and bought a chocolate cake and decorated it with pink icing (my mom will be proud). Once Tricia was settled into her new room, Grandma and Gwyneth arrived and we ate some cake (and it was good)!



Gwyneth was very interested...



Happy 9 month birthday baby GRL!

Jennifer said...

What a monumental celebration. Mircale, miracle, miracle. I'm so glad Tricia is doing better too. I'm praying for good news from all her tests. The Michigan Jennifer:)

Busy Momma said...

great job with the cake. she looks ready to dig in!

I think it's so sweet that you would go to all the trouble to celebrate your daughter's 9 months with you. Not many men would do that, especially for a 9 month milestone. It just goes to show just how much you appreciate life with your girls. The question is...did Gwyneth get even a lick of the icing?

little kit said...

Awesome job! I love the look on Gwyneth's face. She looks excited about her cake :)

M said...

What a doll!!! Happy 9month birthday miracle girl!

-stephanie- said...

yay! Happy 9 months Gwyneth. Her outfit matches her cake. What a stylin' girl.
Praying for all of you.

The Tranas said...

Cute pictures. Good job on the cake! Was that your first decorating job?

Megan and Company said...

YO!!! How'd I miss out on that?

Ps: Gwyneth didn't eat any because she was all filled up with the Chick~Fil~A I was sneaking her earlier in the day! ;)

Cute cake for a cute girl. I hope the day was happy.

Christy said...

Her outfit matches the cake. hehe!!

Happy bday Gwyneth!! You deserve a big handful of that icing. I hope daddy let you have some.

Lorri said...

Absorb each and every moment!! Breathe it all in and know that we are all still praying ...

*Lissa* said...

Good job! And I love that her outfit matches the frosting. ;o)

My2Girls said...

Nate, MAD PROPS on the cake, DUDE! Seriously, good job!

And, I especially LOVE the way that Gwyneth's dressed in PINK & BROWN to match her cake!

Did Daddy plan that, too?

Looks like you guys had FUN!

Carol said...

Awww, she dressed to match her cake! And stuck her tongue out wanting to taste the chocolate, I'm sure. Still as adorable as ever.

Blessings From Above said...

Great job on the cake. And Gwyneth's outfit even matches her cake? Too cute!

Happy 9th Month Birthday Gwyneth!!!

Nate,

I have been following your blog since January. I have checked in *almost* every day, following the amazing journey that you, Tricia, and Gwyneth have forged. You all are so inspirational. I have two first cousins with CF, who have gone through many struggles, but I did not fully understand the severity of CF until I started following your blog. I know it is sort of late in coming, but thank you so much for sharing so much of your lives with all of us. You, as a family, are so inspirational, and I think about, and pray for the three of you constantly. Prayers for Tricia's quick recovery, and Gwyneth's continued amazing growth :)

Happy 9 month birthday to an awesome little miracle. It is a blessing to be able to see you grow. May God be with you, keep you from all illness and protect you.

I am amazed Nate. With all that has gone on this year, you can do such a good job of cake decorating. I think I have figured out Gods calling on your life, 360 degrees of PURE LOVE.
And you are doing it so good!! Praying for all 3 of you to be headed back home ASAP. Praying His healing touch on Tricia from head to toe.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

BrunetteKoala said...

You can just tell by that last photo that Gwyneth is going to be a chocoholic as she gets older.

And who can blame her...that chocolate cake looks tasty!!!
