2 Sundays ago we had family photos done. I had hoped to get them done in the summer. Since I really, wanted to get photos of the 3 of us, while Bennett was closer to 1 than 1 in a half. Such as life if though we were busy and then I was dealing with 1st trimester woes. However, I was determined to get family photos done, and I wanted to get them done before I began showing. Then of course we decided since we already knew the Gender of Baby #2 we would also take some Gender Reveal Photos.
We woke up Sunday Morning and a lazy Sunday. Bennett woke up in an odd mood though, he wanted to lay on the couch and cuddle with us. He is not a cuddler. In fact, the longest he cuddles is about 10 seconds, before he pushes you away, kicks you or just plan gets up and leaves. He went down for a nap and woke up the same way. However, he was still happy. I thought, well maybe this is a good omen. He will be nice and calm for photos. Boy, oh boy was I wrong.
Having an independent toddler, I have learned to give up on the perfect posed photo. (I don’t know how other Instagram/pinterest mommas get it done) However, that doesn’t mean I don’t dream of it. However, once we arrived at the Carmelite Monastery and met up with our photographer. Bennett was ready to explore and explore he did. He did not want to cuddle us, he did not want to pose, he did not want to stand still or be held. He wanted to run around, he even fell into a rose bush at the end.
BUT I am beyond happy for the photos we did get. And that is that matters =)
Now onto the Gender Reveal. If you follow me on Instagram (@whatupKT) than you already know that what we are having, but for those who don’t…
We are having another BOY!
“Fun” fact, pretty much right after this photo, I got super nauseous and ended up throwing up! Luckily, there was a tiny bathroom just off to the side.
