That little munchkin actually has ROLLS! Unreal! Nate, you said she is kinda on the small side even for micropreemie babies, but mercy mable she has really chunked up! Looking back at the pictures of her first few dayus of life to now..WOW! GOD IS SO GOOD! And isn't His timing so awesome! To think they might be ready pretty close to the same time for release from the hospital! Congratulations and blessings on such wonderful strides over this past week!
Gwyneth's face is really filling out... you've got a little chubster on your hands! Just beautiful :-)
Oh what precious photos! You have two very beautiful girls! Our 11th little one was born Friday and spent some time in the NICU and as I spent hours praying, I thought of you and praised the Lord for the testimony you've been for Him. I prayed for you all and now that we are home, I'm sooo happy to be able to see these sweet pictures of your girls and know that the work on the outside as great as the changes have been is nothing in comparison to the work God has done on the hearts of your family I'm sure as well as then thousands of lives He's used you to touch. love and prayers,The Lockwoods 13 :)

Hi Nate. I've been a reader of your blog for many months now and wept when Tricia got her new lungs. Your daughter's birth date also marks a very special day for me as it was my 3rd anniversary to my amazing husband. My sister had a kidney transplant from our mom in August 2004. She was told she may never carry a child. By God's good graces, she is 28weeks pregnant with my Nephew, "Spiff", his inutero name. She was admitted to Labor and Delivery for numbness in her face and hands. Being the high risk pregnancy that she is already has the doctors worried. I worry too. Then I think of you and your family. Your faith (also my daughter's name!) in God is inspiring and has shed a bit of perspective on the situation our family is facing. I know you have a long list of prayers each day, but I would be eternally grateful to know there is another set of voices being heard by God's ears for my sister's well-being and my nephews health. I pray for you, Tricia, Gwyneth, and the hospital team at Duke every day for you guys. God Bless,Katie
Gwyneth is looking absolutely chubby : )I'm so glad both she and Tricia are doing so well.
Little baby is real clothes, how cute is she?Happy to hear that she is being moved to the step down nursery - things are progressing!Also, was sorry to hear of Tricia set back but glad the bronch scoop helped. Such a hero, Tricia! And of course, it always help to get some deep sleep.Thank you Nathan for keeping your cyber supporters up-to-date!Still remembering you in prayer.Karen et alVancouver, BCCananda
WOW..... God's Work in Progress.... My Prayers are with your family....... Always Remember God is in control..... Love In Christ....
I can't get over how much Gwyneth is filling out...it is so wonderful to see how well she is doing. I am so happy they were able to help Tricia and she is breathing and resting better...I am sure that was scary for her...Want you to know I am thinking of you and praying for all 3 of you from Dallas!!!
What beautiful pictures! And, what a big girl Gwyneth is! I'm so glad to hear that both girls are doing awesome, and I'll continue praying... =o)Karen in FL

Both of your girls are looking so good! It is obvious Gwyneth has put on some weight, and that is spectacular. :)
Both so struggling, both so beautiful, both so yours! :)S
Gwyneth FINALLY has TWO chins!!!toooo cute
She's getting chubby! That's awesome! I LOVE the second one and the little heart outfit is adorable! She is BEAUTIFUL.I dont know how your new nursery is there- but I know when we moved to ours- it was so much easier than the real NICU. It definitely was something to get used to, but it was much quieter and more open and more comfortable than the NICU. It's very exciting that you are there- but I hope you dont have to stay too long :)We are praying for more good days and good news and we are thrilled to see how beautiful your girls are looking these days!
I can't get enough of that precious little miracle! I know you hate country music, but as George Strait would sing, "I saw God Today" (talking about the birth of his new baby girl....
Oh my, what sweet beauties you have!!
I love to see how both of your girls are doing in pictures. We are praying for a picture soon of Gwyneth wire-free and in her carseat ready to go home!
What wonderful pictures! I just visited Tricia's blog and read her story. What a small world - greetings from a town over from where she grew up - Haddon Township, NJ! I hope Tricia and Gwyneth continue to do well and can go home soon! You are all in my thoughts and prayers!
she is gorgeous.. i love those cheeks...
Both your girls look great!! So beautiful to see!God Bless!-Angela
Love your pictures and your models are lovely!

I am in awe of the Lord's NEVER ENDING miracles........... Grace and Peace !!!!
PRAISE GOD! Gwyneth is looking so plump now! i love how beautiful those pics are. Tricia looks great. Our God is an awesome God.
I hope this doesn't come out wrong, but Gwyneth is starting to look less like a preemie and more like a baby. She doesn't look so much like a "fetus", if that makes sense. Regardless, she's a gorgeous, miraculous little girl.
wow!!! who is that in those pictures??? it can't be Gwyneth:) she is growing growing growing. praise the Lord. she is so adorable. our Megan was born 5 weeks early and this Sunday will be turning ONE:) keep taking the pictures. every moment is worth capturing and treasuring forever. in fact today... we took pictures of Meg eating spagetti. those pictures are priceless. have a blessed Wednesday:) --kari
Little Gwyneth just gets more beautiful every day! She has changed sooo much! She has stunning eyes, so dark with her light head, what a looker you have been blessed with.Hoping that Tricia continues on a steady forward healthy path!
As you approach 3,000,000 hits in the next few hours, we wish you just as many precious moments with your little one, your courageous wife and loving family.

Looks like Gwyneth has some chub going on with that double chin!!!!! Tricia's face seems fuller and less tired to me as well.
Hello Nate,I have been following your blog since finding a link on my friends blog to yours. I feel connected to your journey with Gwyneth because my friend also had her first child, a little girl named Kaitlyn, at 24 weeks. She was born Dec. 31, 2007 weighing 1lb, 15oz. 13" long. The stories of Gwyneth and Kaitlyn are so similar. I hope for similar outcomes as Kaityn is also in the step down unit of the NICU and we are planning her homecoming sometime this month. I also feel for both you and Tricia as I am the mother of two boys; 6 months old and 3 years old. I can't wait to read on your blog that BOTH your girls are coming home.Always in my prayers!Shannon (Philadelphia)
WOW hasn't she filled out heaps!Amazing how she now looks so health and full where before her skin was so transparent!Fantastic news on both doing so well!! Here's hoping they will be home with you before you know it!
Gwyneth is absolutely adorable and makes me want to snuggle BIG time with her, but that would be weird because you don't know me...so thanks for sharing such great pictures, we are continuing to pray, going to go snuggle with my two 'babies'....
Gwyneth is SO beautiful. I love her chubby little cheeks. Still praying for you all.Angela in Ohio
Look at those cheeks!! I just want to pinch 'em!! Both of your girls are gorgeous and growing healthier by the minute!! Looking so forward to the days ahead as you move toward thoughts of having them both home! Let us know if there are specific things we can be praying for - otherwise we are praying for healing, health and the trip home!!Much Love,The Vande Castles
Beautiful pictures! I especially love the one of Gwyneth wearing the pink hat - she looks darling. And Tricia....YOU LOOK GREAT!!!

Gweneth is absalutly beautiful)
Wow! Such progress. Glad to see that your girls are doing so well! Thanks be to God!
I have been reading your blog for months now, but haven't commented until now. I work at Lancaster Bible College, and have a student with CF who apparently knew Tricia's brother when he attended there (which I just found out about!) It's definitely a small world! My faith and my resolve to praise the Lord in all circumstances have been strengthened through your story, and I thank you for being willing to share so openly and vulnerably for the furthering of His Kingdom. You will never know how many lives you have touched, but it will be awesome to find out in Glory! Praying and praising here in PA...and supporting my student's Great Strides endeavors...she and several of her friends are walking!
Love those sweet little chubby cheeks, and that pic of Gwyneth folding her little hands.
