Brynn is getting really good at opening her eyes--and she doesn't have to rely solely on raising her eyebrows anymore to accomplish the task.

Not only that, but her expressions are getting cuter and cuter. Matt's thinks the caption for this picture should be "Wow! I have an ARM!"
Matt and I think she has my eyes. What do you think?We also heard back about her height and weight. She gained another 20 grams today, with a total weight gain of 120 grams overall. That took her from 1 lb. 4 oz to her current 1 lb. 7 oz. She also gained a whole inch in height so she's now 12 1/4 inches long. Wow. It's amazing how fast these little ones grow. My brother Kerry predicts that if she keeps going at this rate, she'll outgrow me in 4 months :)

Cameron and I cannot get over how absolutely adorable she is - both in these pictures and in person! We talk about her cuteness often - thanks for letting us visit. I love those big wide eyes; I agree with Matt, I think they are yours. Wow they are just so beautiful - I love her facial expressions too. I'm sad to hear that her PDA is a little bigger. We'll be praying that the ibuprofen works and that she won't have to have surgery on her tiny body. At least we know she is growing, that's a good sign. We love you!

Hi Natalie - I'm not sure how I ran across your blog but I did. I read your entire blog and your story is truly amazing! What a fighter that little Brynn is. I love your posts - you and your husband’s positive outlook is inspiring! My prayers are with you and your family! Leslie (Weisenburger) Moss

Hi Miss Natalie! I have been reading your blog since you started it because when you announced you were pregnant, i had just found out that I was pregnant with my first and that I was just 1 week behind you... so i have been following your pregnancy and then the birth of sweet bryn. I actually miscarried at 14 weeks and it broke my heart but you have such amazing strength and the way you are able to share your faith and testimony through this experience has given me so much peace!
Crazy that i have not seen you for 10 years and here you are making my day a little better!
Thanks lady! you and your sweet little family are in my thoughts and prayers.
