If you are certain you meet the substantial presence test, you can file a 1040.  No need to file the 1040NR.

thanks, It's the first year we pay taxes here and we had income in a foreign country before coming to the US early 2017, do we have to declare that income on the 1040 ?

this answer would only apply if you were resident aliens for the entire year, which you might not be.
