Saturday Photo Hunt - Sad

My 72nd

This Week's Theme: Sad
This photo was taken right after I had Emily. Shelby was sad for two reasons. The first reason was because she walked in and saw me laying in a bed with an IV, and lots of other strange cords and needles protruding from my body. She would not come near me for a while. When she did she loved her baby sister and she was sad all over again when she was told that she could not bring her baby sister home with her that day. She was even more sad when she realized that she had to spend the night with Grandma and Grandpa. It's rare to capture Shelby in a photo without her beautiful smile. I am glad that I don't have too many photos like this one!

When we see our first born this way, we know they've grown in a way or two.
Have a good weekend!

Oh she was very sad and for good reason. I'm sure that sadness didn't hang around for too long. Thanks for visiting - happy weekend.

So bittersweet! But Shelby was just worried about her Mom and new baby sister.

I could imagine how sad and scared Shelby was when she saw you in that state. I'm sure she now understands what you went through.

Bless her heart! When you are young it's so hard to understand what is happening. I am sure she has had many happy times since then!

What a great backstory to explain the sadness. Great photo as she still is gorgeous in the throes of tears.

I'm sure it was scary for her to see you like that. My kids are always sad when I have to go in the hospital.

She seems like a sweet little girl. I hope she is feeling much happier!

congratulations for the new baby!

Poor sweetie! She had good reason to be sad.

I'm sorry I'm so late visiting - haven't had a spare moment this week!
