1 year-old

David turned 1 year old this week. What an amazing year he had!

We thought a lot about what to do for his birthday. We even consider inviting some of our closest friends to come and celebrate with us. But because the house was too small, we thought they wouldn’t be very well accommodated.  Than we considered having an online party, so our family in Brazil could participated as well. Then with the running to find a new house, we didn’t had time to plan for that.

Even though we are Brazilians, we never wanted throwing a traditional First-year-old birthday party for our son. Not that we have anything against that, but it is definitely not our style. So for his first birthday we did an American traditional birthday party.

We had a small and wonderful celebration. His grandparents sang him happy birthday through the msn with the webcam. His “American grandmother” came to celebrate with us. We were so thrilled that she could come, and he was so happy with everything.

I don’t know if every child is crazy about balloons. Our little boy LOVES balloons! Every time we go to the grocery store  he keeps pointing at the balloons saying: “oh, oh”.  We had balloons and of course a cake. He was so thrilled to walk around the house with his own balloons.

He didn’t care much about the cake. I think it is because he is not into sweets. And of course that is because we don’t give him sweets. But he did dig in the cake and had fun.

We missed have our family from Brazil here with us to celebrate his first year. But we know for sure that we will have an opportunity to have others birthdays. In the future, we even consider having his others birthdays in Brazil as well.

These pictures are for all of you enjoy David’s first birthday.

We sang in English and Portuguese/ Nós cantamos em Inglês e Portugues

The other day we went to a Brazilian “churrascaria” (kind of a Brazilian barbecue house). We were really into a “picanha” (the house special of any Brazilian churrascaria).

It’s so interesting how the desire of eat something or wanting something is much better than when we eat or conquer what we want.

It was really nice to be there with the love of my life and my little sunshine to celebrate a special occasion. Although the thing about eat a variety of meets that keep coming over and over again non-stopping until you say no. It was too much!

Nevertheless, don’t be discourage and please go to a Brazilian churrascaria if you can. It is a great experience. Just a tip – “eat the picanha”. They will come and offer you a variety of other meets before the picanha. Don’t overeat the first meets otherwise you will be full for the house special.

If you live in Atlanta I suggest you to go to “Fogo de Chão” it is very expensive but it is the best!

We didn’t go there that day. $$$$$

We went to “Fire of Brazil” which it was … well … in a scale of 0 to 10 I would say 4.



Uns dias pra trás nós fomos numa churrascaria. Nós estávamos doidos pela picanha.

É interessante como que o desenho de comer algo ou querer algo é muito melhor do que quando nós comemos ou conquistamos o que queremos.

Foi muito gostoso estar lá com o amor da minha vida e o meu docinho pra celebrar uma ocasião especial. Apesar de que esse negócio de comer uma variedade de carnes que vem  sem parar até que você diga não foi um exagero.


quem sabe no Brasil teremos uma sensação mais saborosa da churrascaria do que a que tive da churrascaria daqui.

Nós fomos no “Fogo do Brasil” que foi … bem … numa escala de 0 a 10 eu poderia dizer 4.

Com muito amor,


I will give a 9 for the atmosphere of the place

Family Celebration

My love was enjoying a lot! / Meu amor estáva desfrutando bastante!

keep coming

… after a while and lots of meets/ … depois de um tempo e um tantão de carne

No thank you

He wasn’t so happy… no meet for you my friend! / Ele não estáva tão feliz … nenhuma carninha pra você meu amigo!

No meet for you!

At the end we have fun! No final das contas nos divertímos!
