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.”

  • “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.
