Oh, My Winnie… one month with you

I was not given the gift of eloquent speech or the ability to write beautifully. That being said, I’m not going to pretend that I can describe this last month to you… there aren’t words to adequately share how greatly our lives have changed. This baby of ours has brought a light we didn’t know was missing. She’s shown us love we didn’t know existed. Together, the boss and I have gone through the emotions of pregnancy and birth, to find ourselves deep in this emotion of parenthood.

While I had put her in her crib before this, September 20th was her first time “hanging out.” It was also the first day I got any kind of housework done. :)meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-543 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-540 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-544 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-539

On September 30th, she met Jimmy Fallon. :)louisville-photographer-meagan-white-photo-001 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-503

And now, October 3rd, she is one month old.
It is going by way too quickly… it breaks my heart to look through these photos and see the change from 5 days old to 4 weeks old (if you want to see days 1-4, as well as every day in between these photos, see my instagram). But, at the same time, I get so excited to see her personality develop. I can’t wait to watch her change the world one day, but for now, I’m willing time to slow so that I can enjoy my newborn for just a little while longer. meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-513 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-510 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-507 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-506meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-517 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-516

thankfully, I have this opportunity to photograph her days with my “big camera”… however, that doesn’t mean I don’t take a million photos a day with my phone. if you can’t get enough Winnie (and who can?!), follow my instagram or my Facebook page… it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll see this sweet face daily.

  • I’m sharing more photos of her than I usually intend to, but I love who she is right now, and I love documenting that via Instagram (I’ve tried other apps but haven’t found one where I can keep photos/captions easily accessible like this - any suggestions?).
.
She’s 2.5, and she says SO much. She tells stories, sings songs (baby “ayuga,” worship music, and her “abcd’s” are her favorites), and gives us her opinion regularly. 🥴😂 Her favorite foods are pizza and “treats,” her favorite dress is the one with the pockets, and her favorite color is black (definitely my child 🖤😂). She loves wearing “neskits”
(necklaces) and eating chicken “nusgits,” she knows where to go for “Winnie’s donuts” with sugars (sprinkles) and where to get “momma’s coffees” (ok so maybe we go to @dunkin a little too often 🍩🤷🏻‍♀️), and she knows exactly where @bassproshops is. Her favorite thing to do is to go see “the fishies” - she has even named a few, and she knows exactly which is which. 🐟
Just like any toddler, she’s a sponge and soaks up and remembers every little thing she hears. She recounts things to us from weeks earlier, and can recall details that even Shane and I have long forgotten. She knows her letters, colors, and shapes, and has even started to understand phonics and simple math a little. She blows our minds every day.
.
We are thankful every second of every day. These last few months have been a little trying for her daddy and me, but this tiny one truly is our sunshine. Our favorite time every day is right before bed when we sit down with her bible, and she tells us about Noah, Jonah, John (“he had a big, bushy beard!”), and most importantly, Jesus. No matter our circumstances, this girl is a light and a reminder of what is good every single day. ♥️

  • I took a few quick photos of our girl in her Easter dress before church tonight. It was cold and rainy out, so we took advantage of this small pocket of light inside the house. This was one I shot while I was adjusting my settings, and I feel like it tells a story fitting of this weekend - we were lost in darkness, but the light is coming. 🌤
