Tote, Debby, Sammy and Caleb Jimenez said...

wow! that was amazing! i couldn't stop thinking about when she was born and how far she's come! God is just awesome!!!! it was reminding me of a post you did at one time asking what types of things people would like you and tricia to experience one day as parents (or something like it. i've got mommy brain!) how cool that you're experiencing so many new, fun, adorable things with sweet gwyneth now?! love love love it!
Praise the Lord!!! =)

Danine said...

How wonderful!

Jennifer said...

thank you for sharing. I said today anyone who doesn't believe in miracles, should be following the many blessings each day brings especially for you three.

Rick Lawrenson said...

Being in a Redskins family she will not likely be doing the "touchdown" signal very often this year.

Teach her the "choke" sign for Sunday afternoons.

Kimberly said...

Nathan, I rarely get to check other blogs anymore and am so glad I took the moment this evening. What AN amazing blessing this little peanut is to you!! Her growth is astounding since the last time I checked in! God bless you all, thrilled that things are going so well for you..

Penny said...

She's going to make a lot of "guy friends" with the football concepts! Too cute! =)

jdphelan said...

Hey Nate! I haven't commented since both the girls were in the hospital, but I still keep up.

This video is amazing! We have a little girl who is 21 months old. Its so much fun to watch them grow and learn. :o) Thanks for sharing!

You just made my morning! I have tears running down my face because it's so touching to see how far she has come since I first started reading your story. God is amazing in so many ways. She's beautiful. And I'm so glad that you're able to have the experience of getting kisses from your little princess. It's the best thing EVER, isn't it?!

Thanks for sharing -- she is such a cutie! Her dad's not bad either! :-)

Dracomama said...

Kisses are so wonderful! The BEST feeling is when they start showing empathy - when Mom or Dad is sad or hurt and they run up and pat your back or kiss your owie. It's awesome to see a caring soul growing right within your arms :)

Sammy's Mommy said...

Thinking of you while Bill is making his way!! Stay safe!!

Ginny said...

Karlie said...

She is soooo adorable. How amazing to see how far she's come! Thank you for sharing her accomplishments with us. She's as captivating as ever!

Domestic Goddess said...

That has to be the cutest thing I've ever seen. But it seems she was more interested in looking at herself!

Go Gwyneth! You are doing great!

JUST A MOM said...

PERFECT!!!

Wherever HE Leads We'll Go said...

I am very pleased to see that your daughter has been educated on the football of it all. It is my sincere hope that she will grow up to be a Penn State fan. :)

raekayo said...

so precious!!

bridget said...

Love the new video! Thanks for sharing it with us. Gwyneth is so smart and has learned the "touchdown" sign just in time for the upcoming season. Have fun with that. By the way, what is that song that is playing in this video? I really like it.

The Curtis Crew said...

Oh my goodness! That made me grin from ear to ear! She is precious! Aren't slobbery baby kisses the best?

Jennifer said...

Absolutely precious!!

Aww, sweet...

Thank for sharing!

My husband and I taught our oldest how to do the touch down and Gator Chomp (Univ. of Florida) when he was about 8 months old!
Thanks you for sharing!

God is so good! It is such a blessing to see how He is growing Gwyneth. Thanks for letting us peek at these miracle moments!!

Rachel Dominguez said...

I have been missing in action for a couple months now not being able to access my friends/blogs from a computer. I just got my first laptop for home and finally had internet, router, and more hooked up.

I have to say, I havent see Gweneth's adorable little face for over 2 months and this video just made me sob and sob. I cannot believe how much she has grown since I have been gone.

What a wonderful video to catch me up on her progress.

Hope you all are doing well, and I plan on being back more ofter, once again.

Diana said...

That was just so sweet. You are a great dad:)

Gin said...

"Hey Dad, can we do the tricks later? There's a funny little girl I'm trying to watch right now."

Misha said...

I loved that. She is so fun to watch!

Adesta said...

How very precious little Gwyneth is!! I love watching children learn new things and being able to do them when asked. I have to agree that baby kisses are the best in the world there is.

And...I love that she can do touchdown!!! So cute!

momnananelson said...

That is a pricless video.
Such happiness, sure did make me smile,
I thank you for sharing.

Lesley said...

So sweet!

sandra said...

wow. So prescious.

Bradley said...

What a beautiful video, she is amazing!!! Can you let me know what the music was please? It's really nice :o) x

Karen said...

"Touchdown" can also be "Praise the Lord" if you use the same tone and cadence in your voice. Since she is a music minister's kid it could come in quite handy. Having three PK's myself, let me tell you the church members eat it up. It is a delight to watch her grow up.

Jane-Jane said...

i just have to say that its really awesome that you are teaching her about touch downs in a black and gold room! go STEELERS! cause ya know, as Washington fans, there won't be that many touch downs. just sayin. :) love football competition!!!

CulyQFun said...

so cute. Thanks for sharing.

Wanda said...

How gorgeous are you little one! Great video:)

Jacquelyn, Trevor's Mama said...

This video just made my day! I have been following for some time now and I can't believe the progress Gwyneth has made! My son was born and went to be with the angels shortly after; and he was also 1lb. 6oz. just like Gwen! This is great to see and she's so darn cute!

RoseGirl said...

Too Cute!!! How fun and what a blessing to see her developing and growing. Our God is surely awesome and His timing is perfect in all things - even down to Gwyneth's developmental milestones.

Continued blessings & strength to you all!

I came back to your blog today after being off for about a year. I am soooooo happy to see that the family is doing well and that Gweneth is strong and healthy. I started reading your blog just a few weeks before she was born. At the time, I was morning the loss of my twins but seeing her progress gave me hope for other babies that have a hard time coming into this world. Thank you and may God continue to bless your family.
