Karis is 9 months old!

Karis is now 9 months old! I can't even believe it. She is the life of the party and curious about everything. She has recently began to point. Her high pitched screams are getting louder. One of her favorite things is pulling all of her books off the shelf. I believe she is cutting more teeth b/c she is drooling everywhere.
She can pull up on furniture and walks when we hold her hands. She did enjoy her second go at the swimming pool. Probably b/c it was heated.
One night she slept for 12 hours straight. This is a new record.

Week 16-18 (I think)

I can't remember what all has happened since I blogged last. But here are some highlights. We went on vacation! Sao Paulo and Curitiba. We drove and were able to see some beautiful mountains, lots of banana trees, a couple of tractor-trailers turned over because they were going too fast on every winding road around the mountains, and we had one flat tire we fixed in very little time. We spent time with some amazing people serving the Lord in various ways. They also served us a lot!
We have the whole month of July out of school, but we are both seeking ways to continue our learning. I am meeting with a girl from church and Steven is always finding someone to talk with him.
Karis is pulling up on things- everything now. She did great on our trip and loved meeting new people. She is the most charming little girl in the world. She loves to wave and smile all the time.
Sadly Brazil didn't win the world cup, but I have to admit that I did enjoy watching them play. I understand a lot more about soccer than I did a month ago.
Oh, I finally saw the monkeys that live in the park close to where we lived when we first moved here. They are so tiny and make a lout high-pitched noise. We always heard that noise, but now we know where it comes from.
We are glad to have a new family here (they aren't new to us), but it had been so long since we had seen them! They had never even met Karis yet.

Steven put all our pictures from our trip on FB. So check them out there for more.
