July 2012!

For days Josefine had been asking about her sunglasses and we could not find them. During our ride home on monday, Josefine finally found it underneath some toys in the car. It was already dark outside but she put them on. Kaio imediately said there was no sun, so no need for them... she looked outside (glasses on) and said "ali to vendo um monte de luzinhas que nem o sol, precisa SIM!" (I am seeing lots of little light that are just like the sun, so I need them) The little lights were the other cars lights, street lights, etc 
Kaio has been growing a lot lately. I can notice it by him outgrowing his cloths but yesterday we confirmed it with the scale. Our local grocery store has a scale close to checkout, the kids are already 'trained' to weigh themselves when we checkout. A couple of months ago there was only a 2 kg difference between the kids, since then we treated Kaio for Giardia and he also has been eating a lot! So, yesterday, there was a difference of 4 kg between them. Kaio weighed in at 18,3kg and Josefine at 14,3kgs!
Josefine is in a phase that she wants to do everything herself. She also sees her brother do lots of things and she wants to do them too! She insists in climbing up to her car seat every time we head out. It is an SUV, so a higher car. The other day she was climbing up to her seat and fell. She clearly hurt herself and I held her tight to comfort her. When she was done crying I started putting her into her seat and she said "Não, eu sozinha!!" (no, by myself) and sure enough, she climbed nicely into her chair without falling!! She is very persistent!
Kaio started golf classes last week. He now has tennis and golf at our condominium. He is very enthusiastic about the class! He wants to play with his cousin Lucas when he comes with Christmas and with his Oma and Opa. He also really enjoys tennis and has gotten really good with the tennis racket. A couple of weeks ago we also started with "computer" class at home and Jason and Kaio spend at least 1 hr per weekend together in front of the computer. There are several games and activities for him to get familiar with the computer, practice his number and letters and spend some quality time with daddy! They both love it!
Josefine has been waking up early. Between 6 - 6:30. However she then goes, quietly, play in the playroom without bothering anyone. However with the moving around of toys, she often wakes us up. We then get her in bed with us and cuddle. She is very loving and sweet giving hugs and kisses, smiling saying how great and marvelous we are. I don´t mind waking up early to such a great morning routine!
