Finding Out

Taken mere seconds after finding out...

...what, you think I didn't have a camera handy?

Posted by Chris at January 19, 2005 04:44 PM

That's a great picture! Definitely a "Kodak moment".

Posted by: ann marie at January 19, 2005 04:52 PM

So why do you bother with this "job" you talk about? Why not just be a photographer for, like, real?

Beautiful photo. Again, the kid is lucky.

I'm first! Woo! And . . . aww! You guys look a little nervous. =P

Posted by: Jennie at January 19, 2005 04:53 PM

Pfft. In the time it took to write "I'm first", two other people were before me. *agonizes*

Sometimes a situation or a picture just makes you smile and feel real joy. This was such a picture/situation.

Posted by: jen at January 19, 2005 04:57 PM

That picture says so much! Wow - how cool!

Posted by: Sue at January 19, 2005 04:58 PM

LUV the picture!! :) Thanks for sharing!

Posted by: Sweety at January 19, 2005 05:04 PM

I wish we'd had taken a pic at that moment, it would mirror yours for sure...you both are too damn cute.

Posted by: JuJuBee at January 19, 2005 05:13 PM

Terrific picture!

So, uhm, when are you gonna post the "mere seconds after conceiving" pictures?

[hanging head down in shame] i know. i know. i'm sorry.

Posted by: patricia at January 19, 2005 05:14 PM

That IS a great shot, but was it taken before or after the requisite screaming peepee dance of joy?

Posted by: Broad at January 19, 2005 05:16 PM

I can feel the butterflies! How sweet is this picture?! Make sure you put that in the baby book as well!

Posted by: zanie at January 19, 2005 05:19 PM

Wow! Such a cute picture :) Love Beth's sheepish look! Okay! Your butterflies-in-my-stomach look is cute too :)

Thanks for sharing it!

Posted by: Luna at January 19, 2005 05:38 PM

AIIIEEE!!! That's fantastic, you guys! Awww...I'm so happy for you. *beam*

Beth looks stunningly beautiful in that shot. What a Madonna. And by that, I mean mother of Jesus. Not pointy chrome bra.

Posted by: tj at January 19, 2005 08:50 PM

I love that the grins just couldn't be suppressed. And then what? A large exhale 2 days later? Or haven't you done that part yet?

Posted by: bmh at January 19, 2005 09:25 PM

Posted by: Keri at January 20, 2005 09:19 AM

Definitely qualifies as a kodak moment.....

Posted by: Jade at January 20, 2005 10:11 AM

Ok...NICE way to start my day! I am SO happy I am doing the *happy dance and standing on my head* first thing in the morning before my hair is done!

Oh...all I can tell you is your life just changed! keep open, keep loving and keep your sense of humor!

Baby Fish Cactus!

Off to find baby stuff to make for you! : )
CONGRATS!!!! Ah....life is good!

Posted by: Gypsy at January 20, 2005 10:28 AM

Beautiful photo, beautiful people.

Posted by: Coleen at January 20, 2005 10:56 AM

You look very excited and eager, whereas Beth looks a bit....relieved? Maybe she was. Anyway, great shot to capture the true emotions of the moment.

Posted by: smartjuice at January 20, 2005 11:12 AM

Wow, what a great shot. Again, I say with the genes this baby has going for it, it is bound to be devastatingly attractive. Now don't let that go to your head, because Beth is clearly carrying you in this category. ;-P

Posted by: Bond Girl at January 20, 2005 12:22 PM

Chris (and Beth) I am so happy for you guys!! I've been absent, but I'm on Beth's notify list and saw a post about this!! :) And into your second trimester too!! Congratulations!!

Posted by: Kimmer at January 20, 2005 12:37 PM

Posted by: bd at January 20, 2005 02:59 PM


Posted by: chris at January 20, 2005 04:45 PM

Congratulations you two! The looks on your faces is priceless. Now go and rub Beth's feet!

Posted by: Marie at January 20, 2005 06:47 PM

Hey congratulations.. now you can relax and do it whenever! ;d (as opposed to a schedule). Enjoy the next few months they are very exciting.

Posted by: Charlene at January 20, 2005 08:12 PM

the question is really where that photo was taken... :)

Posted by: stinkerbell at January 21, 2005 12:50 PM

Great pic, I love it! Definitely a perfect shot for the babybook ;)

Posted by: Chrissie at January 22, 2005 03:55 AM
