Yes, OK? She is.

Becky is 8 weeks pregnant. By our rough estimates, we ought to be adding to our brood sometime around the end of January.
Becky is not feeling well. With Samanatha, she threw up for about 7 straight months and ended up having to rehydrate with IV fluids. Four happy years later, Zofran has gone generic and that blessed pharmacutical is helping to keep things where they should be.
She didn't want me to post any photos of her dry-heaving or silently sipping Gatorade, so here's some pics from about a month ago when we went to Utah. Becky attended BYU Women's Conference with my Mom and sisters, we visited with my grandmother who hadn't met either of our girls, and we went up and stayed in SOLITUDE, a luxurious ski lodge with a condo owned by Becky's brother's company. Amber Hardman had the pleasure of seeing us for a spirited day of collaborative camaraderie. Unfortunately, many of the pictures taken reside in my mother's camera. She'll have to decide she cares enough to either send them to us or post them on my dad's blog.

Becky and Amber have been roomates on two continents. They used to stab young men together late at night. With knives.

Amber is capable of holding that smile firm, even when two small children are simultaneously urinating on her lap.

Jon and Emily have the same neck.

Grandma Deanna and Sam have the same rosey cheeks.

This is not in Utah. If you click on the picture, you'll be able to that the generic fruit loops have been scattered to the far reaches of the kitchen floor, just like in BattleStar Galactica.

I keep forgetting to ask you about how your trip to Utah was...a month ago. Sorry about that. :) I'm glad you had fun, and that's so great that you got to see Amber!
The picture of Lucy with the cereal is hilarious. She has such an innocent smile like, "What? Me? No...I didn't make this mess..." I can't wait to see them both! (Well, all three, technically)
And the video of Sam is so cute. Her face is looking older to me, she looks about 20. ha.

Yay! It is the year of the boy (seems to be everyone I know who is prego is having a boy). We'll see! I am excited for you guys. Except for the nausea part. I've been experiencing that for quite a while now too. If I have the same meds as you all I have to say is... HOLY TIRED. That stuff makes me sleeeeeepy. But it works!

I knew it. And, how is Chrissy pregnant? Is she old enough to know where babies come from? So weird...

Um, this is Hale-bop here! I love that Jon gave me that nickname. You can tell him that I loved his 8 random facts! As for the baby factor. HOLY COW! I am so excited for you and I wish so badly that I was closer so I could hold your hair back while you barf, or at least take your girls from you so you can sleep.

P.S. Those pics of you and Amber are fabulous!

Becky,

Your blog is SO MUCH MORE fun than Johanna and Josh's, which is, as you may have noticed, rarely updated. They must have no life ...

I love watching your family grow. Thanks for the window.
