Oh, My Winnie… two year photos

2 Years

Last year, I recapped this girl’s month-to-month, and I loved doing it. I contemplated keeping that trend going, but this year went by so quickly, she’s turning two before I even got my feet on the ground. It’s hard to believe she’ll be two on Monday. This last year was so full for us, and I am tenderhearted at the fact that it’s already over. Our girl grew leaps and bounds this year, surprising all of us with her words and skills. Her favorite things became her Little People and her puzzles – she can play with either of those for hours. She wasn’t a fan of the great outdoors last summer. It could be because she couldn’t walk, or it could be that she was taking a cue from her momma. Either way, we worked hard at changing her heart and here we are, two years old and she LOVES being “ow-side”. She loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Micky and the Roadster Racers.  She also loves watching movies like Sing, The Secret Life of Pets, Monsters, Inc., and Zootopia. Our girl is an animal lover, but only in the cartoon or pretend form. We took her to the zoo, and she wasn’t impressed (maybe because none of them were talking?). Another trait she might get from momma.Getting her to smile at my camera is a full-time job. She’s a busy little thing, never sitting still for very long. One of her favorite things to do is “go, go, go,” which means running laps in our house or across the backyard.  I never want to forget her vocabulary at this time. I think it’s my favorite thing about her being two. Some of my favorite words of hers are:
Mickey – “Cow”
Minnie – “Bee”
Momma – “Baba”
Elbow – “Bel-bow”
Cereal – “Cereoleole” Everything about this kid is my favorite (including those curls). We had no idea how generous God could be, but this past year has shown us again and again that we still have no idea, and He will surpass any expectation or measure we create. She is a picture of His love for us, and we are so, so, SO thankful for the gift that is Winnie.

  • Here’s a quick update, for those asking... unfortunately, we don’t really have one. 😔 We’re still sitting in the unknown with baby. We have questions that won’t be answered until the big day, and we’re still praying that we get to the big day safely. And now we’re navigating the covid-19 chaos that has been added. No matter how “ready” I try to be, I am not ready to deliver during a global health crisis. 🦠😣 But even though we don’t know how this will all turn out, we do know Who .... we know Who holds us and this entire situation. So please keep praying. ♥️

  • I’ll be honest, I don’t have much to say about coronavirus. Right now, it’s just not a priority for us. At the risk of being one of those vague posts that everyone is annoyed by, I’m going to share this without getting too into the details. So here I am, asking you to pray. 🖤 When I was pregnant with Winnie, I was at the hospital a lot during those last few weeks of pregnancy for IV iron infusions. I was dangerously anemic, and I foolishly thought that was as crazy as pregnancy would ever get for me. 😓😬 This time around, I’m at the hospital a lot again, but this time we’ve got a lot of questions and not as many answers, and we’re just praying to get to the finish line healthy and safe. I would be forever thankful if you’d pray for us in this season. (no, it’s not Covid-19 🦠) And pray for this momma’s heart - our hospital has enacted a no visitors policy, which includes big sisters 😫😭 I totally understand the policy, but I’m definitely a little heartbroken over it.
  • What a season for holding tight to the things that are important. 🖤🌟

  • I’m slowly working on the last of my sessions before baby is here (emphasis on slowly 🦥🤪). Thankfully I have incredible and patient clients who are understanding and encouraging through this season. ❤️One of my more recent sessions has finally made it to my blog! 👏🏻 Jenny and the entire @theelderberryco team were a joy to photograph. 📸😊️

  • We were kids, ages 16 and 14. Never in a million years could I have guessed that 20 (!!!) years later, we would be here. 🖤 If I’d had the chance to write this story, I would have missed out on so much - it’s better than I could ever have imagined.

Happy 14th anniversary to my #1. Loving him is one of my greatest privileges.

  • These last few weeks have been the busiest and also the hardest weeks of pregnancy, and I don’t think that’s a coincidence. 😣 I’m learning a lot about what it means to slow down and listen to my body (and this sweet wild child I’m carrying), which also means letting a lot of things go. It’s hard, but of course it’s worth it. 🖤 But also, being pregnant in your (almost) mid-30’s is NO. JOKE. 😅🙈
