“I have a little post traumatic stress syndrome,” Kody told  His wife Janelle admitted that the family had “an adjustment period,” but that they are all “getting their sea legs in Nevada.”

Robyn, the new fourth wife in the family, is expecting a baby and said she’s doing well with the move.  “I’m sick, I’m tired, but I’m happy to be pregnant.” 

“Everyone’s helping out,” Janelle said about the family, who are separated into four houses, one for each wife, and dad Kody says he just drives to each one.

“He’s an awesome, awesome father,” Robyn said about Kody, who has father 17 children with the four wives. 

One thing the family really misses though is their church in Utah.  “We’re members of a specific faith,” Kody said, declining to name the faith.  “We meet as a family because there aren’t any members of our religion here in Las Vegas or all of Nevada.”  

But they’re adjusting to their new homes.  “I think the kids are starting to hit their stride,” Janelle said.
