momentos con mi famila  


Time has gone by fast this year. Too much to tell has happened and with Dakota in our lives every moment has been memorable. It's hard to put into words just how special every little happening is... the magic that a child brings or the way that every moment becomes richer... almost more full of life if you can imagine. One has to experience this for himself in order to understand what I am gibbering about. But here are some photos to share with you the happiness that my little family has brought to me and that Dakota has brought to us. Carpe Diem!

Te amamos mucho!

me encanta su risa  


There is something about a child's laughter, it's just so real. This was taken the other night long after I was asleep. Dakota seems to be a bit of a night child and lucky he has mum to keep him company... I do feel like I am missing out though. Maybe I should start having afternoon coffee? Ya veremos. I just had to share with you this bit of the little one who keeps me smiling all day long.

Adair fam reunion pt. 1  


We made it to Sydney and I am very much enjoying spending some time with the Adair family relies. The weather here is relatively cool compared to Adelaide and I have finally met Jessica! She is lovely person. It's been good to see April as well, and she brought tamarindo and Tequila... so much love! Wishing Justin were here but we'll be sure to have a few drinks in his honor. We arrived day before yesterday and are heading out to Bulli ( a small beach town) for a few days looking forward to the rest of the week and I will try to take as many pics as I can.

Spent the afternoon at the pool yesterday and snapped a few shots... seeing family together is making me think a lot about mine in Mex... there will definitely be a major reunion when we return. The little guy likes being in the water and his grandma got him the cutest beach hat... he looks like a little french legionnaire or something, must get one myself. Everyone wants to hold the little man and thankfully he has been a very happy boy. I wish I were as photogenic as Amber and Dakota they are so good looking.

Will keep you posted.

viva la vida  


Still alive... haven't entirely forgotten about this little corner of memoirs. We are settling into our new abode in SA and are doing very well.

This journey however has reached important junctures as of the last time I sat down to write. Wonderful news ... Amber and I have received the most incredible gift ever. His name is Quinn Dakota Luna and he is nearly 6 weeks old now. He is beautiful. His silent breathing and wordless smiles have made me feel more joy than all the combined partying there has been in my life.

I pray that I will learn to give more of myself, be less selfish with my time, and help awaken in you the desire to reach out to others. Te amo chiquito.

Amber, thank you for bringing our little boy into the world... thank you for being my wife. We will enjoy seeing this little man grow every step of the way mi amor, it's the beginning of something new and challenging; I know it will be the most rewarding experience yet and having you to share it with makes me doubly blessed... Te amo.
