Olivia likes to tell us that she is now Portuguese. She has become quite an affectionate child with her school friends, much like they are with each other, and in a way unlike most American kids (hugging, holding hands, kissing on cheeks and often, lips). I'm sure this will wear off in time as we settle back in the States next month.
My sister, Andrea, reminded me to get some "evidence" of Olivia speaking Portuguese. So, here is a video of Olivia conversing with her babysitter, Maria (Don't ask me what she's wearing. It's clearly one of her apparel creations). They are discussing grandma, grandpa and Aunt Andy. In the end, she asks for more food and tells Maria she is going to get a chair for her baby. She's really cute in the beginning because she thought I was taking pictures and not video. Enjoy.
