So mzee takes baby Barack for a diaper change and a cool half an hour later he re-emerges singing and dancing with the baby singing “If you liked it you should have put a bib on it” to the tune of Beyonce’s “if you liked it you should have put a ring on it”.
Now mzee is not the singing type at all so I fall over laughing. Why is he singing this? Turns out that a diaper change that normally takes 5 minutes took so long because the baby kept spitting up on every outfit he was put in and there was a total of three outfits involved. So Mzee concluded to himself that if he liked the outfit, he should have put a bib on the baby to prevent the clotted milk that soon coated every new outfit.
In honor of 30 minute diaper changes I leave you with Beyonce:
At today’s ultrasound we found that we’re having a healthy, big and tall boy. (I can’t believe its been 20 weeks already!) I must say that it came as quite a suprise because in my mind I had decided that we’re having a girl. Don’t know why but that had been my intuition. oh well. so much for women’s intuition. Perhaps it was just me wishing…. Good thing I hadn’t painted the nursery pink!
Now comes the fun part of picking names. Mzee and I are picking a Swahili first name then each of the grandfathers get to pick out one middle name and then he’ll keep mzee’s last name for his last name. Yep, this unfortunate cross cultural kid will get loaded down with four names total.
Mzee and I had so much settled into thinking that its a girl that we had picked out the girl name: Naima. Boy names are harder. We’ve got a short list of swahili boy names none of which we’re thrilled about. we’ve already considered Fadhili, Tumaini, Taraji, Jabari and Johari and none of those are really working well for us.
So Swahili speakers out there: What are your suggestions for swahili boy’s names. Help!!
