Family Pictures

We had family pictures taken a couple of weeks ago.  I love having pictures of my family together as the boys (and soon to be girl) grow.  It's so fun to look back at pictures of us with Adam at 1, 2, 3 and so on, and then adding Jackson into the mix. 
Here's the fam (we did not strategically place Adam in front of me to hide the baby bump - it just turned out this way)
 And here's my Adam.  He is such a poser.  The photographer didn't even have to tell him what to do...
 And J-Man.  We wanted to get a pic with his hands in his pockets.  He is obsessed with pockets lately, and always walks around this way.  This picture totally captures his personality for me!
 These other pictures I printed from the photographers website (don't tell anyone).  Here's another poser Adam shot.  He has this goofy grin lately!
 And a J-Man poser - look at those muscles!
 The photographer wanted to do maternity pictures as well.  She took a few shots, but I wasn't too happy with any of them.  I printed this one, so I'd at least have one picture to show what I looked like pregnant with this little girl.  I'm not sure what my deal is with maternity pictures.  I'm always bugged with the hands under the belly thing, and then everyone is always telling me how small I look and that I can't possibly be 32 (or whatever) weeks pregnant.  It was the same thing with the boys.  I have a long torso people!  I measure right on when I go to the doctor!!  Anyway - I guess I don't think the pictures look very impressive for all the work I've been putting in to growing this baby over the past 7 and a half months.  Pretty petty of me - huh?  Anyway - here I am at 32 weeks with baby girl (we have picked out a name, I'm just not adding it to the blog yet)
We'll do family pictures again when baby girl is about 6 months old.

Great shots! For the record, I think you look pretty pregnant. (pretty as in beautiful not pretty as in very) However, its totally not petty to dislike pregnancy photos. I feel huge and hate them when they're of me. But of you-they're cute!
