Spring Pictures

Courtney and I on the steps of the Los Angeles temple after her wedding. Doesn't she look gorgeous?

I really don't have much to say, this post is mainly a pictorial update for out of towners. 

Helena has developed the ability to stick her tounge out.

This is Jorge's mom, aka Abuela Clara, giving Helena her bath. Clara spends every Thursday babysitting on the one day Jorge and I are both gone. She is a great help.

It takes a village

It's my first official Mother's day. I've been a mother for all of about three months and I have figured out one thing, this day is not mine, it belongs to my mother. I have done nothing to deserve a day in my honor, my mom on the other hand, is the village it takes to raise a child. If I am a fraction of the mother that my mom has been not only to her biological children but the countless others graced with a touch of her motherhood, Helena is in good hands.
I love you mom.
