I have been away from the blogging world for quite a while now. Sorry to all my fans out there (I think there may be about 5 of you...hehe). Things in the Castro household are ticking along. Lucas is growing like a weed and we are busy preparing for the big move back to Texas.
If anyone has any advice on long haul flights with a baby, please send them my way. I've already packed his little carry on suitcase, which is actually a big carry on suitcase. I am probably way over packing on the formula and diapers, but my worst fear is running out of either at any point between Heathrow and IAH.

Edgar has had a 4 day weekend! Friday and tomorrow are Bank Holidays, so Lucas and I have really enjoyed having him around so much! I don't know what I'll do when Tuesday rolls around and I'm back to single duty again. Edgar is the greatest, most supportive and understanding man in the world! I have slept until at least 9:30am for 2 days in a row, haven't changed one dirty diaper, and my back is finally feeling a bit recovered. My doctor gave strict orders at my 6 week check-up that I was to do nothing that would stress me out (had a bit of a traumatic birth experience), and Edgar took him very seriously. I can say without a doubt that my smooth recovery, both physically and emotionally, has been due to the overwhelmingly amazing support I have at home. He always knows just exactly when I need a break.

So, these next two weeks are going to be spent winding things down here...returning the cable box, switching the utilities out of our names, cancelling the cell phone, etc. The hardest part will be saying goodbye to our friends. I won't talk about that right now, because I am in a very happy mood and that topic will just be a downer.

Hope everyone has had a great Easter. Next year, Lucas will be searching for the golden egg!
