Black and White Wednesday - "Patiently Waiting"

May 26, 2010

Steps angle Final Color wm

Here is my girl chillin' out at the bottom of our staircase.....patiently waiting for me to finish up my work so we could head out to do some shopping for a baby shower that we were attending the next day.

Sarah was so excited to go to her first shower, but I don't think she fully understood what it was all about!!!

As we were walking the aisles of this baby superstore, we were both intrigued by all the cool gadgets and equipment.

Just as I grabbed a few things to put into our shopping cart, Sarah asked me if we were going to get to bring the baby home right after the "shower".....

Ummmm.....I think I she was a little confused.

We have been talking to her about becoming a big sister.......

She thought if we attended a "Baby Shower", that we were going to "get the baby"

I definitely had some explaining to do......

and it seems as though Sarah is going to have to conitnue to "Patiently Wait"

the long road

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday:)

A quick little update: Someone asked about Sarah's cute little rose bud clip!! You can purchase them, along with a WHOLE BUNCH of cute hair accessories and tutus, by visiting Kimberley's, SOPHIA JANE BOUTIQUE. Click HERE to check out all of her beautiful things:)

a Tonggu Momma said...

Oh, poor little gal. I hope she transitioned easily to the new idea. This wait is often the most difficult on the children already in our homes.

Maddy said...

She is quite the little model! I wish I had a little girl to photograph! My newphews never, ever sit still for a picture! It's torture!

carolinagirl said...

redmaryjanes said...

That was a confusing time for Eli as well. He did not understand exactly where his sister was or when she was going to be able to finally come home.
I just know that you all will do so well with your new little one. I cannot wait to see photos!
These photos are wonderful. The SJB blog is getting hits right and left from your site, so I had to come over and see what was happening.
Thank you so much for your continuous support of my little business. I truly appreciate it.

Amie said...

Cute story and cute photos!
I don't think I would be so "Patient." ;)

Sharie said...

That is the cutest sweetest thing ever! Little Sarah is going to make a good big sister - although it will take some adjusting for her too:)

I immediately thought, "Where is that clip from?" so thanks for sharing that tidbit!

Donna said...

You always find the best backdrops for your photos! Sometimes, that's my biggest photography challenge.

how sweet!

Kristine said...

That is so funny that she thought you were going to bring the baby home from the shower! lol...

My kids thought that babies came from the airport for a while and I hope that thought lasts for a couple more years ;)

Your pictures are beautiful and so is your Sarah!

Faith Hope Love Photography said...

As are we all patiently waiting for your family!! What a fun story to tell her when she gets older...and of course love the pictures to go along with it!

Amy said...

That clip is just too cute. I wish I had a baby girl to get one for.

I think, for these pictures, I like the color versions better. I really like the color of the stairs behind her. Combined with her pink shirt, it makes the photos much warmer.

Valerie and Jeff said...

Beautiful photos of your sweetie! I love the way you handle the backgrounds to accent your subject. SO cool--sweet story too :-)

Blessings!
Valerie

Jboo said...

So sweet! She's going to be the best big sister ever!

Kam said...

hey girly, these are beautiful as usual! and your little lady is getting way too grown up looking!

i was thinking of you today when i was loading dishes into the dishwasher...don't ask why, i don't have a clue. but i was thinking that i can't wait till you go get that sweet China baby! i'm praying for you and just can't wait. i'm afraid that when Kay Bratt speaks at our church in a couple of weeks...i'm gonna be dying to hop on a plane to China myself! :)

i'm so darn excited about this friday! can't wait. hope i can meet Grace while i'm there! wish you were coming...but look at you! you're already a pro!

love and hugs~

Colleen said...

I know this wait has been so tough for you all. It is so hard when you are little to comprehend it all. I remember how tough it was back when our boys were little waiting for Faith and the wait was much shorter back then. I can not WAIT to hear the exciting news when that day finally comes for you!
As always your photos are absolutely stunning. I can't get over how grown up Sarah looks in these!

Terri said...

I'm really really really excited for you and your family! I'm so glad I found your blog and so glad to call you a blogging friend and of course..photo editing teacher! =)

I show off your pictures all the time! Their fabulous!

Dita said...

The colors in these images are absolutely magical. The wood on the staircase, the pink in her shirt and the blue of her eyes. What a great expression you captured in every single one.

I do love the B&Ws too but something about the color here just takes my breath away.

Sarah is too cute...I can imagine if I were her I'd be thinking the baby was coming home after the shower too.

Won't be long now, my friend and I can't WAIT!

xoxoxo

Virginia said...

She is so, so pretty! Great photos. Sounds like someone is getting as anxious as her Mama must be. See that little light up ahead? That's the end of the tunnel.

Our Complete Family said...

Sweetness. Pure sweetness!
Love ya, L

Love Letters To China said...

Such a little cutie pie you have on your hands! She is going to be such a great big sister. Her eyes just pop on those b&w's.

I'm so sad I didn't get to participate this week. As you know, I was a tad bit busy. Getting ready to go on the last leg of my journey. I'm kinda wishing I wasn't going because I really miss my family. I know once I'm there I'll feel the opposite way.

We'll have to touch base next week. So much to share!

Hugs....

Rachelle said...

when we had the shower for my youngest, my daughter (6 yrs then) said "I don't know how we're all going to fit in there with you... and won't you feel weird being naked?" Somehow I think the term baby shower needs an update.

Mrs. Claus said...

I gave you an award on my blog.

Patiently waiting, and waiting, and waiting. And THEN - before you know it, your sweet girl will be gazing for the first time, at her sister's sweet referral photo. It IS going to happen!

Jonni said...

Gorgeous photos Lisa and Sarah is such a beauty. She looks like she was waiting patiently for you (lol). That's too cute about what Sarah said about the baby shower. Hopefully not too much longer. Have a wonderful weekend and holiday. :)

Hugs,
Jonni
