Settling in

So we are starting to get settled in here in Utah. Everything has kind of been a whirlwind. We got here last Wed. Then Lorenzo and I flew to Arizona Friday morning so that I could get some dental work done. I am so grateful my brother was kind enough to work on my teeth on his day off:) Of course we had everything planned to go on Friday and Lorenzo got so sick. I ended up still going and I feel so bad because I got my brother's family sick. We flew back to Utah on Monday and I start my job this coming Monday. Good thing kids are resiliant. They have been thrown around with no real home, but I guess change is good. Everyone has been so supportive and that makes all of the change that much easier. Anyways, I think we are finally getting a grip on everything.

I took my kids to get pictures for Lorenzo's one year birthday. It seems like one is the magic number for my kids. I remember that is when Esperanza started hating picture time, and the same thing happened with Lorenzo. Although I did get some pretty good pictures of Essy. I am going to try again with Lorenzo. I hope we have better luck!

He did not want to smile. He is still pretty cute though.

We are moving back to Utah. I can't believe it. The kids and I leave in two weeks. That is fast to wrap everything up here. The weird thing is that I actually feel really nervous about it. I thought I would be all for it, but Spencer had to convince me. We are going to live with Spencer's parents for awhile and try to save some money. We are thankful to them because that is a lot to ask! Hopefully they will survive us :) I also start working again in a couple of weeks. I am really nervous about that too. I hope I remember everything. I am sure going to miss my kids. Anyways, we are excited to see all of our family and friends. We are also excited to see all the new cousins that have been born since we left. Rebecca and Brandon just had their baby for pictures go to

Worst Mom Award!

I think that I get a worst mom award for the day. We were at the library and I had a bunch of books in one hand and was trying to help Lorenzo stand up with the other hand. So I pulled on his hand, and all of the sudden he just started screaming. He wouldn't use his arm and every time I touched it he would cry. I was freaking out thinking I hurt my son and he is screaming in the library. I thought I had dislocated his shoulder or something. Anyways, I called my doctor and they got him right in. I think I might have over reacted a little bit. It ended up that I dislocated his elbow. I felt so bad!
