Family Photos

About two and a half months ago, we traveled to Springfield, Missouri for family photos.  You can imagine how excited Andrew was for this trip.  Franklin, on the other hand, was psyched.  

But, not as much as me.

I'm embarrassed to say how long it had been since Andrew and I had our photos professionally done.  Really embarrassed.  Needless to say, I no longer feel like a hypocrite and am so, so happy with our photos from Katie Day.

The best part was that we got to include both our babies.  Baby Franklin and baby-on-the-way.

I wanted to share some of my favorites since our Christmas cards have been sent.

And, doesn't Franklin just look like the happiest dog in the world?  He doesn't know what's coming.

Okay, so those are most of my favorites, not some.
And, I love, love, love them.

But, not as much as the photo shoot we had this morning.

We had the gender reveal sonogram today without the reveal.  They can show you so much!  The normal black and white picture you're used to at all different angles - feet, hands, spine, profile, etc.

But, they also do 3D versions at the doctor's office now.  And live video.  For free.  Andrew was a happy man.

It was so amazing seeing that little peanut flail around.  He or she would not move her hands away from his/her face.  And, it was so incredible seeing Andrew's reaction too.  I forget how different this experience is for him right now since he isn't able to feel anything yet.  

In his words, "things just got real."

Goodnight little baby, sleep tight.
