Re: Anyone raising their kids bilingual?

We are. I am American and DH is originally from Cape Verde (they speak Portuguese there). I speak Portuguese well so I can understand when my son is speaking Portuguese although I mainly speak English and DH mainly speaks Portuguese (so that he is hearing native speakers of the language). My dd is only 8 mos but my son (2.5) speaks both. He definitely leans more toward English but that is what he hears more. He mixes them sometimes but knows who to speak what to if it is someone that only speaks one of the languages. Does that make sense? Not the best description but I think I got my idea across.
