Oh, My Winnie… two months with you

I keep checking and re-checking the calendar because I just cannot believe that we’ve already had two months with her.

October was a busy month, with lots of developmental changes for her (including the real smiles that we can coerce out of her, lots of chatter and cooing, and scooting her little self across her playmat). It was also the month I went back to work, spending my first days away from her, and she spent her first evening with a “babysitter” (her Nana, who does so much more than babysit). I’ve also been spending a lot of time in my office, and together, we are slowly figuring out this working-mom-from-home thing.

It’s been a busy month, and I know it is just the beginning of the busyness that is life with a baby. And while I wish time would slow, the schedules would clear, and the to-do list would shorten, it’s not because I am overwhelmed… it’s because she’s so much more than we ever imagined, and I am desperate to hold on to every second.meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-002 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-9949 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-001 img_9915 img_9914 img_9912

This second month has been big for some Winnie-Elliott bonding… which is more like “Elliott is obsessed with Winnie and where ever Winnie is, Elliott isn’t far.”meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0019meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0152meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0174 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0176 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0154

And now, November 3rd, my girl is 2 months old.
She’s changed so much in the last month (and even more over the last two) – gone already are the days when I could snuggle her on my chest and she’d fall fast asleep. Now she fights it a little more, and we have to put in a little more work to get her to settle in. But when I’m walking the hallway with her in my arms and she puts her little arm around my shoulder like she’s doing it on purpose, I stop because I am so in love and I pray I never forget how that moment feels.  meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0068 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0072 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0078 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0064 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0065 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0089 meagan-white-photo-louisville-photographer-0084

  • it’s the only photo we have of Winnie with her aunt Sallie because addiction is an evil that doesn’t give up, it’s a villain that won’t quit.
some people would say that Sallie lost her fight, but we know she won the ultimate battle and is celebrating 2 years in Heaven today.
we grieve everyday. it’s been 2 years without her and it’s been 2 years of missing her bottomless joy. but we are certain that joy is all over her face as she’s dancing with Jesus this morning. 🖤 #celebratingsallie
  • Who is ready for fall? 🍁 (aaaand everyone raises their hands 🙋🏼‍♀️😆) I took down Winnie's birthday decorations yesterday and immediately replaced them with all things pumpkin in my house. 🎃🙌🏻
.
I'm back to work this fall, and I've got some fun things to look forward to. 🍂 I spent the summer building a downloadable PDF of my photography course, and I'm excited to have that available soon - sign up for my newsletter for early access and special pricing (link in my profile). 📷👏🏻

We can’t believe that we’ve been living the best days of our lives for 2 years. Happy birthday to our girl, the most beautiful  and wonderful person I know. 🎈

  • today, we are celebrating our girl - she doesn’t turn 2 for a couple more days, and we are savoring this last weekend with our 1-year-old. 🎈
(there are a few more birthday photos on my blog today: www.meaganwhitephoto.com)

  • I took the summer off from shooting - we have had so many fun things keeping us busy, and I wanted to keep my sanity (I don’t manage chaos well 🤪).
That being said, I’m officially getting back to work after Labor Day. My girl turns two in a week, so I’m ending my summer break with her birthday. 🎈
My fall mini sessions are happening in a little over a month, so if that’s something you’re interested in, let’s make it happen. (link is in my profile) 🍂
I haven’t been on Instagram for a few days (which shouldn’t really be noteworthy 😆), but there’s nothing new in my feed (thanks algorithm), so tell me what I’ve missed - what’s new with you?
  • photographs are how I will keep her little forever. 🖤 don’t settle for taking photos that are just “ok” - let’s chat about how you can bottle up time with your camera with images that you love. 📷 (link in my profile) #ohmywinnie
