Am I starting to show?

Here is a quick picture of me. I am now 4 1/2 months. Everyone has asked if I am starting to now you can see for yourself. I had to prop the camera on top of a box, on top of a bar stool with cd's under the lens to get the shot, so it's not the best picture, but it will do. Also, there are some pictures of the baby blanket I have knitted and a newborn hat and mitts.

First Trimester Ultrasound

4D Ultrasound (He didn't want to show his face...
his little boy parts are hanging down.)
13 weeks!
Showing us he's a boy
Being Camera Shy (see his hand in front of his face...)
We had our 1st trimester ultrasound yesterday. The baby is very healthy. He has all 10 fingers and toes and everything looked great. We were able to tell (and are about 95% sure) that it is a boy. We plan to name him Benjamin Howell. We are very excited that Gabe is going to have a new brother!!

Gabe's 2 year pictures

Byron and I finally got my studio equipment set up and so I did Gabe's 2 year photo shoot. Right now he is completely obsessed with classical music. He pretends his guitar is a cello and calls himself Yo-Yo Ma. Rachel bought him a toy guitar for his birthday and he pretends it is his violin. He even uses a dowel rod as a bow! He asks for composers by name. His favorites are Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky, Beethovan, and Mozart. So of course, when doing his shoot, I HAD to get his "cello" and "violin" in with him. These are some of my favorite picturs of him yet!! Enjoy!
