Mexico 2012

We are safely back at home.  We had a long (due to flying stand-by) few days trying to get home, and Leo had a bumpy transition back into life back at home.  He was a total trooper about being away from jb for so long and the airport waits, long plane rides, and bus rides - but once we got home it was clear that he wanted to make sure he and jb were never separated again.  Even a simple trip to the bathroom would lead to crying.  He's mostly back to normal - but is still keeping a close eye on jb.

Despite that little bump, the trip to Mexico was a total success.  We got plenty of vitamin D, ate lots of delicious food, saw some people we love, and Leo's Spanish catapulted from shy nouns to full sentences.

Here are some highlights:

  1. What a fabulous trip! I love the pictures with Abuela - precious!
    I cannot imagine flying so far with a toddler! We barely make the 2 1/2 hr car ride to the mountains. But, I suppose if we had started much younger with the boys as you have with Leo it would be (nearly) second nature.
