Can it get better?

I don't like to brag but... I have a wonderful husband, two handsome boys and the sweetest little girl and I ask can life get any better? My answer: Yes!

Before sceptics start to question...is she just putting on weight or is she pregnant? I would like to say: YES! This is me 8 weeks along. We are indeed adding another sweet spirit to our family with a due date of May 18th. And the answer to probably your second question: Yes, it was planned! It has just been so fun (most of the time) to have the boys so close that I wanted another so that Bentley might have the same relationship. They will be 17 months apart where the boys are 15. If I can do 15 I can do 17! We are so excited and can't wait for this bundle to arrive!

Congrats! That is wonderful news and I hope it is a smooth pregnancy for you. My husband's family has 4 boys all within 5 years of each other and they are best friends because they're so close in age. Another girl would be fun so you can use all of those cute clothes again, huh? :) I'm really happy for you!

Congratulations! We are so excited for you! I can't believe you are already two months along, hope the rest of the pregnancy goes well. We are trying to catch up, but as fast as you are going, it might take triplets :)

YEAH!!!!!! Now I won't be all alone and we can call each other and talk about our crazy days with all of our crazy kids!!!! I am happy for you. How are you feeling?? It is hard having morning sickness and a baby on the floor. Mine was only 4 months when I was the sickest and I felt so bad putting him down so I could throw up, but you do what you gotta do. Good Luck!!!!

Wow Salena!!! Congrats! That is so exciting. It made me think about having one a little sooner that I originally wanted to, but I just don't think I can do it! And Jason said he couldn't handle another kid right now, haha.

And I had to add that I never ever would have guessed you were pregnant from that picture, and I'm pretty good at seeing that kind of thing. Although I've never guessed as early as 8 weeks.

Thats WONDERFUL news!!!!!!! See it is true, in the "end of days" there will be more LDS women having children, and you know what? I love it!!! Congradulatoins Salena, I think thats awesome! I remember when I first met Bentley and kept wanting to call her Bertley because theres a man in my ward named Bertley, oh how aweful I felt. and NOW youll have another little baby around soon. and look at Bentley, I just love how she loves popcorn popping.
Goodluck with the 1st trimester, but heck girl, youre almost through it!!!

You look awesome and I think Jarron's a lucky guy! Congrats again and we miss you guys! Next time you're in Austin or we're in Boise, hopefully we'll get our families together.
