Oh, My Winnie… three months with you

Oh my word, three months… it’s literally unbelievable.

November was a month full of milestones from sitting up (for only a few seconds, BUT STILL) to rolling over, which means she is done with tummy-time – every time we put her on her belly, she just rolls right over onto her back. She’s actively working on getting from her back to her tummy, but I’m praying we have a while before that happens… we’ll see. November was also the month that the newborn clothes finally started to fit a little tighter… she’s still wearing a few of the onesies, but our time is limited with those.

She saw her first election this month, took her first bubble bath, and went through her first Gilmore Girls binge marathon. She loves to play, including jumping in her doorway jumper. She loves her toys and is quite content to stare at or chew on whatever is within arms reach (although, she’s still mastering her hands – they still have a mind of their own, which confuses and frustrates her). Speaking of chewing on everything… the DROOL. We haven’t had to use bibs before now (thankfully, we have avoided spit-up so far), but with this drool, we don’t have much of a choice. But she has the gummiest grin to go with it, and it’s the sweetest thing you’ve seen. She also giggles now, and it truly is the best thing we’ve ever heard.

It’s been a big month, full of change and growth, holidays and family… everything you could want for a little one. We are so very thankful for this sweet tiny one of ours, and while it seems like our newborn grew overnight, I am absolutely in love with who she is right now… she really is magical.

Jimmy and Winnie, Month 3.meagan-white-photo-louisville-newborn-photographer-083meagan-white-photo-louisville-newborn-photographer-080Since it is finally too cold outside, we shot these indoors this month… Elliott couldn’t stay away. :)  Also, that bottom lip about the sweetest and saddest thing I’ve ever seen. For the record, she wasn’t feeling our little photoshoot but quickly changed her mind. meagan-white-photo-louisville-newborn-photographer-081 meagan-white-photo-louisville-newborn-photographer-084 meagan-white-photo-louisville-newborn-photographer-085 And now, December 3rd, my baby is 3 months old.
She really has grown so much – from rolling to sitting to standing with very little help from us (she isn’t close to being able to balance yet, but she has crazy strong legs), it’s very clear that the “fourth trimester” has come to an end. And it has been the best 3 months of our lives.
“Extraordinarily ordinary. I’d say this is all I’ve ever wanted, but that’s not true. But if it’s all I ever got, it’d still be more than enough.”

  • Father’s Day, 2019 | 06•16•2019 🖤 generous, devoted to his girls, very opinionated about food, not opinionated about pretty much anything else, fiercely loyal, extremely selfless, dedicated to kingdom work, smart and prophetic but even more humble... and also the greatest daddy to the greatest girl. 🖤 happy father’s day to my guy, the best I know.
  • I held her and rocked her until the very end. I kissed her again and again, and told her how much we have loved her and how we will always love her forever. It was peaceful and sweet and exactly what we needed, even if it’s not what we ever wanted. I wish more than anything that she was healthy and could have been with us for 100 more years, but I know she’s not in pain anymore, and I know that’s good. It’s just really hard. She was my best friend, she went through so much with us, and now we have to figure out how to get through this without her.

I’ve got to take a break from here for a while - we’ll be moving soon, and I never thought I’d have to do this without her. I’ll be ok, it’s just that right now I miss her more with every breath. ♥️ Thank you to everyone for your kind words, it means so much.
  • I woke up this morning with a tear-soaked pillow and a new understanding of heartache. They say that a dog will bless you with the best days of your life... and also with one of the worst. 💔 Yesterday was the hardest day I’ve ever had. She gave us so much... she gave us everything. I love her so much.
  • I was certain that no matter how many years went by, she would be with us forever. I didn’t think I’d ever have to share this news: our sweet, incredible, beautiful Elliott has passed. 🖤

I’ll share more later. Right now, our hearts are so very broken.
  • Amen for the weekend. 🙌🏻🎉 Our main squeeze has been living away from us during the week, so we count down to Thursday nights when he comes home for a couple of days. And then we all get to be a part of our new community at @lakesidechristianchurch together on Sunday, which has quickly become our favorite day each week. ♥️👏🏻 So, happy weekending, my friends - see you on Monday. ✌🏻😎
  • We are SO excited to be coming home... this summer is going to be a good one. ☀️ I am now booking for August and have some special Fresh 48 and Motherhood Session pricing, just for you, Northern KY! ♥️
