The Newest Member of Team Pattysue

I nearly cried this morning when I was dressing Gwyneth. The shirt she's wearing today is one of our Team Pattysue shirts that we make every year for our family and friends that walk with us in the Great Strides Walk for Cystic Fibrosis...except that this shirt was made for our 2006 team, long before Gwyneth was around. Thanks to hand-me-downs among cousins, the shirt has found it's way to us, and to see it on Gwyneth today is very overwhelming...just one of those things I never thought I'd see...

Tricia and I in May, 2006.
Gwyneth today.







BTW, some of you have noticed that Tricia's website is down...it will be back soon!

Oh my! When did she become a LITTLE GIRL? Seems like just the past couple of weeks she's not a BABY anymore :O

Gorgeous :)

Amy Lynn said...

She gets prettier and prettier, and yes, a little girl moreso than the baby she was.

Wow. This is really cool! Gwyneth looks so grown up with her pink glasses and Team Pattysue tshirt!

And noticed yesterday that Tricia's site was down, glad it'll be back soon!!

On a separate note, is there a day or week for raising awareness on organ donation? And do you know of anyone who would be willing to do a guest post on organ donation or donating blood?

Carla said...

That's awesome. A small reminder of God's goodness.

Hmm.. well.. that could be Josh's or Jessie's or Maddie's....

I love my '06 shirt and sleep in it just about every night!

The first photo of Gwyneth with the dimple/clef in her chin is so so cute. I think this is my favorite so far and that is a lot to chose from.

Janet said...

I was going to say I think it's Jessica's but forgot it could have been Josh's maybe. Either way...LOVE seeing it again.

Carol Anne said...

I love the last photo. Gwyneth looks so content.

Fantastic! And Gwyneth---I could just eat her up. Positively delicious. That smile in the first picture is priceless.

Happy New Year.

Gwyneth is SUCH a doll! But of course, you already knew that. :-P

Sharon said...

What a cutie!

Agnes said...

Thanks to everyone who has and continues to "come out " to our Great Strides. If I recall correctly I believe Grandpop and Grandmommy Lawrenson made those 06' shirts possible for all of us to wear. Thanks to you faithful folks as well.

Becky said...

It's been a while since I've commented, though I still check your blog regularly. Had to say how gorgeous G is though, and yes, how "big girl" she's getting. Also have to admit that the post made me cry a little too but then you've always been a pro at that! I love it!
