He'll Be A Great Daddy Someday.....

I have discovered that Jalen loves babies. The other day, he saw his baby cousin Weston and gave him lots of kisses. Then he found one of Malia's baby dolls, and kept carrying it around the house.

He very gently carried it upstairs, and told me that he was putting the baby in its "alga" (bed). These boys have never had a younger sibling, so they must have learned their baby skills at Hannah's Hope!

Then, Jordan decided to get in on the action, too, and together they fed their baby a bottle.

When the baby had finished the bottle, they took it to the bathroom, held it over the toilet, and informed me that the baby was going "shinte" (pee). I guess they don't remember the diaper stage too well! (Or, quite possibly, they never had a diaper stage, as diapers tend to be quite rare in rural Ethiopia.) Then Jalen put the baby back in bed and covered its face - just like they do in Ethiopia!


Think he'll be a good Daddy someday?


  1. PRECIOUS!!! I love the blanket over the baby's face - SO significant from HH! So sweet.
