(Bump) Pink & Brown Day!


Guess who will be two tomorrow!?!

You might remember that we invited everyone to celebrate Gwyneth's birthday Last Year by wearing either pink, brown or a combination of those two colors on January 8. Before she was born, we chose the combination of pink and brown to use for Gwyneth's room and other things. As it would turn out, the vast majority of her clothes are also pinks and browns, which is totally cool with us.

Well, we had so much fun with Pink & Brown Day last year, and so many people participated with us, that we're going to do it again this year. And, just to bump it up a notch, we're also asking, if you celebrate with us, that you email us a photo of yourself!

Although it will be a little while yet before Gwyneth is able to understand what her birthday means, we look forward to sharing with her the things we have recorded on this blog as well as every encouraging comment and prayer when she is old enough.

And, be sure to check back in tomorrow for some fun birthday posts!

Thanks!

Nate

Happy (early) Birthday Gwyneth!

I thought about your family a lot yesterday as I sat with my Grandmother at Duke, waiting for an appointment. Especially since we were right next to the transplant clinic!

Next week, we return to Duke for a Pulmonary Function Test and, naturally, it made me think of y'all again and I wondered if Tricia has had such tests done there as well.

I pray that you guys have a blessed 2nd birthday with your little princess! Hope to see some Pug photos!

Tomorrow is my nephew's fifth birthday. He was a preemie, too, but a 32 weeker. That was scary enough (five weeks in NICU).

I blogged about his fourth birthday and Gwyneth's first last Janaury 8, if you're interested. :) http://www.ramblingsbyreba.com/2009/01/08/happy-birthday-to-francis-and-to-gwyneth/

Happy (almost) birthday, Gwyneth!

Wow, what a "coincidence" before even seeing this post I laid out a pink & brown outfit for my 2 year old to wear tomorrow!

Happy Birthday Gwyneth! Is that the same hat you are wearing in this picture as the one in the picture of you dressed like a fraggle?

Mayyou know God's best this year of being 2.

Happy Birthday to my birthday buddy! I have on brown. :)

I can't beleive that it's been two years since I went to an empty church after work to pray for Gweneth and Trica, and you, Nate. I remember posting that it was something I'd never done before. Well, it wasn't the last! Following your journey helped me to re-find my faith...which has been invaluable to me time and time again over the past two years as a CF mom. Your blog never fails to bring a smile to my face and peace to my heart.

Happy, Happy birthday Gwennie! And to you to, mom and dad...it's your miracle day, too!

Happy birthday Gwen!! :) I had an interview today, but I wore my pink shirt with my suit in honor of your birthday, sweet girl! :) Hope your day was amazing!

Has it been 2 years already? So hard to believe! Happy Birthday to our precious little Miracle. I always thought that should have been her middle name, as that is truly what she is...a little Miracle from God. What a wonderful gift she is. So happy for all of you, and look forward to many more years of watching you all grow as a family in Christ.
