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

  • I’m going to take a break from shooting/sharing. I want to give space and have time to honor this family and this story. Please keep praying for them. ❤️

(archiving her holiday photos here is the easiest, so I’m making up for not doing it last year 🤷🏻‍♀️😬)

July 4th, 2018 - we spent the morning at an aviation museum, followed by an afternoon with a sick toddler. 🤢Thankfully, my sister took an Uber to get a new car seat (yep, the toddler was *that* sick 😬 - we couldn’t put her back in her current seat and we were 1.5 hrs from home 🙈), and we ended the day with a fireworks show on our street. 💥👏🏻🇺🇸

  • In 100 years, people will remember the tenacity of his love for the people around him, but especially for his girls. 🖤 I’m thankful everyday to be his.

Happy birthday to my hubs who won’t actually see this but still. 😆🎈

  • I very much wish that I had more photos of Shane with Winnie in those first days. But since I had just done the whole delivering a baby thing, I didn’t take as many of them as I thought or hoped that I would. He’s not usually an emotional guy, and I would love to have captured his excitement and happiness through fresh 48 photos. So the lesson here is this: don’t be like me, and make sure you preserve those early days together. 🖤
