After 7 months and much anticipation...

...We're all here together in Mexico!

Here's the photo everyone's been waiting to see:

This is actually a screen capture from my parents' computer while they were talking to us on Skype as soon as we got home. Hopefully we'll get a nicer one taken while we're here...

Some photos of Carlos getting to know his son:

Carlos' dad meeting his first grandchild:

Wake up, Daddy!!!

I decided the last straw was when, after postponing our trip due to the "swine flu outbreak" in Mexico, I fell ill with a nasty strain of the flu. Ironically, it's very likely that what hit me was the same swine flu, due to the fact that there were a number of confirmed cases in the schools where I was substituting right before getting sick.

Just when I thought I was recovering, Lucas started showing signs of it. Fortunately, after a check-up at the doctor and lots of Tylenol, he recovered, but we were nervous for awhile. It's always scary to see your child sick, but especially when you know how he's feeling.

After we completed our 7-to-10-day contagious period, I jumped on the very first flight we could get to Mexico.

And here we are. Hopefully soon I'll be able to get a few spare moments to post about some of the things we've been up to. Till then, suffice it to say we are one very happy family!
