In the second photograph, the 1.5-year-old sat atop what seemed to be a seat that was covered by a tan blanket with black and red stripes. He smiled in the photo, that used many of the same props as the first image.
Another photo showed their complete family, including the clan's tiny dog Cali.
In the final photograph, an image of two pumpkins that announced the impending arrival of Deena and Chris' child had the addition of a black-and-white sonogram photo taped to a small one placed between them.
