Oh, My Winnie… four months with you

No. No, no, no, no. There is no way we have already had another month with this sweet baby. It was seemingly overnight that she grew and is no longer all arms and legs. She has some serious weight to her and is starting to outgrow some of the 0-3 month clothes that she JUST started wearing. The scrawny little thing I brought home back in September is growing into quite a little meatball. Time really is just flying, so this momma is really focused on celebrating all of our “every days” – I live in fear of time passing me without realizing it’s happening.

She practiced her sitting up this month, as well as her standing. Yes, as much as I want to keep her my immobile little baby forever, I fear the end is near for that. She pulls up on our hands into a standing position almost any chance she gets. That’s not to say that she has any kind of balance yet, but the strength and desire are both there, so it may not be long. She has also begun to scoot some when on her tummy. So, walking or crawling… either way, here we go.

She’s attached to her momma and daddy in a big way. We are her people, and she knows it. She will let others hold her, but it’s not uncommon for that to only last a few minutes. She’s become opinionated on the matter, and she doesn’t shy away from letting people know it, usually breaking out the sobbing without warning. She also doesn’t shy away from letting her daddy and me know when she’s not feeling something we’re doing, like when it’s time for bed and she just doesn’t think she’s ready. This little stinker of ours will often make any kind of noise to keep herself awake in protest.

She had her first Christmas, and her momma and daddy celebrated in a whole new way. We’ve never had as much fun as we had this year… even if Winnie slept through most of it. Lol, I know that each year will be even more fun than the one before, and we can’t wait. Except that we can because we want to hold on to this time with her forever.

No one can prepare your heart for what happens when you bring a new little babe into your world. Four months later and we still don’t have the words. Jimmy and Winnie, month 4 And now, January 3rd, this tiny one is 4 months old.
She’s extraordinary, and it’s beautiful. It’s strange how our hearts will often hurt from how much we love her. We’re overwhelmed by the gift that is every day with her – she’s magical, and we’ve never been happier. more Winnie…

  • “Waiting is active obedience.” We are in a season of waiting, and if you have ever waited for God to show you something, you know that it’s never a passive waiting. We are waiting and resting in God’s sovereignty. “Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.” (Matthew 6:8) ♥️
  • Such a fun family session posted today 🍂  there are no words in the post, just pictures... word press updated and it was late when I was working and I was easily confused 🙈😆 what I would have written about is how it rained in a BIG way right before we began shooting, it broke as soon as we began, aaaaand then it picked up with thunder and all the very minute we quit. ⛈ Quite an afternoon, but this group ROCKED and it was so much fun - see more at meaganwhitephoto.com. 👏🏻

  • I know a lot of people are wondering what in the world is happening over here these days. And honestly... I’m not really sure that I know. 😳😂
Here’s what I can tell you: Shane and I have felt a little “off” about a lot of things for a while, including what he’s been doing in his job - there’s nothing “wrong,” he’s just not doing what he is called to do.
We know, without a doubt, that he is an incredible worship leader. But he’s also crazy talented at teaching and sharing the Gospel. So to only be doing maybe half of what he’s capable of has been a little discouraging and draining for him. It’s contrary to what the world says, but when you’re living in your gifting, you’re not “working.” Yeah, it’s for sure hard work, but when it’s what God has clearly called you to, you do it and you’re energized. To be doing something else, even if it’s less work on paper, it’s exhausting, and that’s what’s been happening.
I don’t know if this will make sense to most. Or to anyone, really. To see us stepping out like we are without a clear, step-by-step plan... well, it’s unnerving. But we know it’s right.
There are a lot of little details that are a part of this story, and they all add up to one big answer - the time to pursue something new is now. Do not wait. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Get.👊🏻 It.👊🏻 Done.👊🏻 So that’s what we’re doing.
All of this unknown has created a lot of questions about our decision-making abilities and maybe even our sanity 🤷🏼‍♀️😆 our prayer has been and better always be that everything we do brings praise and glory to the One who holds us tightly. And we know that this story will. So, for everyone wondering and praying, please know that we are fully confident and fully trusting, even though there are days when it’s hard. There have been a lot of tears and confusion, but there has also been immense celebration and excitement. And, as a lot of our closest friends have said, if anyone can do this, it’s us. ✨

  • 2018 is the first year since I started Meagan White Photo that I didn’t accept any weddings. Sessions like this are one of many reasons why I haven’t regretted it once. ♥️ Thankful every day.
