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.”

  • Today, while we shot birthday photos for this girl (I can’t believe she’ll be two in a few weeks 😱😭), we talked about aunt Sallie and how today is her birthday. The irony that we’re planning a birthday while mourning a birthday is not lost on me. But I know that Sallie would love that we’re celebrating her through celebrating our girl. 🎈 #ohmywinnie

  • wow! a huge thanks to @todayswomannow for sharing this story!! 🎉❤️ (local friends, it’s in their most recent issue 👏🏻)
.
we made an unpopular decision a few months ago by getting rid of almost all of our social media and keeping Winnie as far away from it as we can. and it’s been so rewarding. 🙌🏻 Winnie still gets shown off from time to time, but keeping our real lives with her off of this app (and Facebook, Twitter, etc) is one of the best decisions we’ve made as parents.
.
“When it comes to our kids, we are in the midst of a ‘large uncontrolled experiment’.” Technology (ie, smartphones and social media) is the only thing that we throw blindly at our kids without knowing how it will impact their futures. I’m not saying our choice is the right choice for everyone, but I am saying to do your research. #ohmywinnie

  • I am SO READY for fall weather. 🍁 Summer is great, I don't mind it, whatever. But I've been talking about fall more and more recently, and OHMYGOSH CAN IT GET HERE ALREADY. 😫
.
Fall mini sessions will take place on 10/6 and 10/27. Both will be here in Southern Indiana. One weekend might have the option for Christmas themed props, I haven't decided on that part yet (if this is something you would want, comment and let me know which weekend would be better for you). 🎄 If these two dates don't work, don't fret... I almost always open up a third weekend for them once I get the first two booked. 🙌🏻

  • I have a lot of bad days. I don’t always share them here - maybe I should. or maybe it’s good that I don’t because who wants to hear me whine, am I right? 🤨 it’s just that some days (Sundays) are especially difficult when Winnie doesn’t see Shane even once all day. and you know she asks about him aaaall day. 😩  but thanks to my sweet friends who checked in on me after my post yesterday. you guys are the best and really I’m fine. 🖤 now, if Monday could just get on with it because, ugh, mooonnndddaaayyy. 😒😖 #ohmywinnie

  • no clever caption or insightful thoughts about this photo. 🤷🏼‍♀️ it’s just a photo that makes me happy, and I need a little of that right now because sometimes Sundays are hard. 😞
