251 – 258/365 – First Two Weeks in Brazil

Hello everyone.  It’s been a good two first weeks settling in here – not without its challenges, but overall we are very blessed and happy.  I have been somewhat horrible at pulling out my camera – I think it’s because back in Canada, I felt safe bringing it everywhere with me.  Now I have to be more careful where I take it, so I have been using my iPod a little bit more – of course the quality isn’t as good, but it is pretty handy.  We’ve been to the playground a lot – Shasta always says to us, “Want to go to the pa-layground.”  He is so funny, he is talking up a storm and making me laugh all day.  Another cute thing he does is say “O-kaaay?” at the end of his statements, for example: “I gonna go downstairs, oookaaaay?” or “I wanna watch Thomas, ooookaaaay?”  We all think it is hilarious.  I’ll have to get it on video one of these days.  He’s still speaking English… he loves to shout “Helloo!” to people as they walk past our house, and tell them about his trucks and cars.  He’s learning some Portuguese though I think.  This morning he crawled into our bed and after telling me he wanted a bunny(it was random to me too), he went to Nuni and said, “Bom dia Daddy!”  He is in such an adorable phase of life right now.  Here are a few snapshots…
