Special Moments in May!

May was a busy month for us! 
We are preparing for our soon coming trip to the USA, Felipe has been working lots trying to get photography projects finished before we travel, and we had several personal things going on.

Today on the blog I am registering some special moments from our month of May! 

In honor of Mother´s Day, Jessie had a ballet presentation at her little preschool.  She takes ballet there every week as part of the preschool program.  This was a very special day for Jessie! 
We always walk to Jessie´s preschool as it is just around the block from our house.

 Jessie was nervous and a little shy, so she had a serious face the whole time!

A Mother´s day mother-daughter dance!
Our son, Josiah, also had some special moments this month! 
Our big guy is growing up fast. During the month of May he quickened his crawling pace, began standing up (while holding onto something to keep him steady), and I think will be an early walker. Watch out world!

Josiah got his Brazilian passport this month and turned 8 months on May 20th. He also recently cut 2 more teeth - totaling 4 teeth in all, and weighs over 20 pounds (9 kilos)!!!

Here are a few photos of this chunky guy. He brings such a joy to our family!

Josiah's EXTRA special moment of the month was when we had his baby dedication on May 21st at our awesome church here in São Paulo.  This truly was a holy moment to commit to raising our son in the ways of the Lord and for the glory of God! 

Felipe's mom and sister recently moved to live closer to us. They are living at a beach town, which is a short hour and half drive from our home. We are extremely happy they live close to us now! They came to church with us for Josiah´s dedication, and then we celebrated Felipe´s mother´s birthday at our home.  This was a special day celebrating God´s goodness as a family!

 At the beginning of the month of May I also helped give a baby shower for my dear friend Silvana!  Actually her daughter, Helena, was born today (May 31st).  We are rejoicing in new life!

 Giving this shower was a special moment for me during the month of May. Silvana and her husband (Robert) are fellow ACTION/ABBA missionaries and are the leaders and founders of the ministry where we serve, Casa Semear.  It was a blessing to be able to celebrate the life of their baby girl together with so many dear friends! 

May was full of many special moments!  
We are thankful we are ending this season well as we are going to be away from our life here in Brazil for a long while.
God is good!
