Black and White Wednesday - The New "Do" Part Two

May 18, 2011

Sarah pulling Reagan down the path BLOG
Sorry to leave everyone hanging on Monday!
I ran out of time and I had too many pics for one post..... Is there such a thing as too many photos?

After we left the hair salon on Friday afternoon, we stopped at my parents house in hopes of showing them the girls' new dos. We were all disappointed when we got to their house and they were not home, so we went to the local park to kill some time in hopes that they would soon arrive.

Looking out over the field of buttercups BLOG
The big field that was blue bells just a few weeks ago has now turned into buttercups and wishies.

The Wishie Collage
The girls had a field day{pun intended}picking and blowing!

Making her sister giggle with the wishies BLOG
Sarah showed Reagan just what to do for fear she would eat them like she did with the blue bells:)

Sarah Front and Side View Against the Brick COLLAGE
After we left the field, Sarah agreed to a few shots to show off her new short hair! I am loving it and so is she!

Sarah Standing Up Straight Brick Wall2 BLOG
I cannot get over how much more mature Sarah looks with her hair this short. I seriously cannot stop staring at her..... and I have to say that the cut totally suits her personality!

Snack Time COLLAGE
It was a good thing I came prepared that afternoon with sippy cups and snacks because before long Reagan was ready to take a break and Sarah happily joined her in sharing a bag of goldfish....... one of their favorite snacks! I love their feet in this black and white shot:)

The burgundy doors gigglefest part one COLLAGE
To see the two of them together is something....they make quite the pair!
The burgundy doors gigglefest part two COLLAGE
More bare feet, lots of giggles, and one compassionate and caring big sister!!
It's impossible to watch these two and not smile from ear to ear:)

UH OH No One is Home WM
After their bellies were full, we tried to call my Mom and Dad one last time, but there was still nobody home, so we called it a night and went back to our house.

Of course 20 minutes after we walked through the front door, my phone rang..... It was my Mom! They were out with my nephews at a park which happened to be about a mile from the hair salon......go figure!!

My parents came over to visit this weekend and they made a big deal about the girls and their new looks, as did everyone that saw them:)

I am VERY HAPPY we took the plunge and went short....... Reagan's bangs were a little wonky the first few days becuase her hair still wanted to be parted on the side, but now they are laying very nicely.

Sarah's hair is now parted on the opposite side and it has taken a few days for us to get the part at just the right place so that piece of hair is not hanging in her face all the time. I actually have been using a tiny clip to pull it to the side and it looks ADORABLE!! So now I am in search of very cute, but tiny little clippies for her hair. If you have seen anything fun, let me know.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and a great week!!

Total adorableness. Love both their dos - amazing how perfect those cuts are for both of them and how it changes their look.

What a great pair they make. I'm sure you can't even imagine life before them...and Nick too!

Have a great week!

What I would give for a field like that near my house! Full to the brim with wishes a'waitin'! But alas, all I have are fields of cacti. And they're not good for wishes at all.
They both look so darling!

I love their new hair-dos! Reagan looks so much older for sure. And Sarah, what an amazing big sister she is. Those pictures melted my heart.

Here is one of my favourite etsy sellers for the cute tiny clips...

She's on vacation at the moment, but take a look through her 'sales', and you'll see why I adore her stuff!

Absolutely LOVE the cuts on both girls! I loved Jenny's hair when it was bobbed and while I'd like to go back to that, her daddy is wanting to grow it as long as she'll let it go. :)

Love this shots Lisa...Perfect story telling of your two beautiful girls.

Virginia said...

Just when I thought they couldn't possibly be any cuter! I love the new do's on both of the girls, and your right, it does make them both took just a little older. It's so obvious that these two adore each other..it really shows through in these photos, so sweet.

Dita said...

When I see these two together I can't help but remember all the conversations we had about how Sarah was going to be in for a shock when she realized she wasn't the baby anymore.

Well, I guess she fooled us, huh? I have never seen a more attentive big sister than Sarah is to Reagan. They look as different as night and day in their own gorgeousness...but there is not doubt in the world that these two are sisters through and through.

I love every single shot but the ones of Reagan giggling at her sister and those adorable piggies wrapped and curled and free in the Spring air...those made my heart sing!

3 more sleeps and you'll all be here....can.not.wait!! Even the boys are psyched over here for your boys to arrive!

xooxxoxo

They both look so adorable. I love the short do on Sarah...definitely gives her a sassy look. Reagan looks great with bangs and a bob. You can certainly see and feel through your photos the love they share. It's a wonderful sight to see.

Hope you have a fabulous Wednesday Lisa!

TanyaLea said...

I just realized that since I follow so many of my bloggy friends on FB now, that I rarely comment on their actual blogs! Sorry 'bout that!!

LOVE Sarah's new due ~ and she DOES look so mature! It s a very flattering look on her... SO cute! And as usual, AMAZING photos... especially love the 'field day' ones. Sarah is clearly such a great helper and Jie Jie to Reagan. They are so blessed to have one another!!

As for clippies, my friend Kelly makes GREAT hair accessories of all sizes, and she is a huge supporter of the orphans and is currently saving money for their own adoption journey, so I know she'd appreciate the business! Not to mention, she does quality work! I know, as we have SEVERAL of her creative accessories for Khloe!
