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.

  • I realize it’s weird to complain about social media ON SOCIAL MEDIA, but welcome to 2019 where this is what we do. I deleted this app from my phone for a 3-day weekend, and it was THE BEST. I think it might become a regular thing, we’ll see. In the meantime, know that I have the cutest one-year-old on my blog right now, AND I’M OBSESSED. ❤️

  • I felt you. You were a pea. Then a lemon. Then an eggplant. I followed advice. I read 12 books. I quit coffee.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Could you tell I was scared?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I talked to you, sang to you … I wasn't ready.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But then you were here. Ten toes. Eight pounds. Love. Big fat love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I held you. I fed you. I realized that I would spend my life doing things to make you happy—and that that would make me happy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And then there are the times I want to give up. You've made me rethink my sanity. You've made me want to fall on my mother's feet and tell her that I get it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But then you smile, and you say my name—and you grab my hand with those little fingers.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're growing. Together. We are seeing the world like it's new. I will open my heart, and love will rain down all over you. You'll giggle, and I'll do it all over again. And we will walk hand in hand. Until you let go.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I made you, but you made me a mother.🖤
