Baby Africanisms

Daddy's favorite time: Burp time!

So of all the "South Africanisms" I think "baby items" have the most differences.
I asked so many times for a diaper in the hospital...and nurses gave me blank stares!

So here is "Baby Africanisms 101"
Diaper=Nappy
Burp=Wind (You wind your baby not burp him!)
Stroller=Pram
Diaper Rash Ointment=Bum Cream
Play Pen=Pack n Play
Pacifier=Dummy

I am recovering well from my c-section, thank you for your prayers! I never even payed attention when people talked about having a c-section cause I thought it would never happen to me! I never realized I can't drive or pick up much of anything for 6 weeks, pretty crazy. But the Lord has been so good. I'm just glad that Noah is here safe and sound! I also never realized how quick it was. After going through so many hours of labor, and then them telling me I needed a c-section, within a half an hour I heard his little cry! He turned a week old today, and we took him on his "first excursion" to Mugg & Bean (a coffee shop) to take Clint's mom out for Mother's Day.....here's the photo of his first car ride out on the town. I don't think he even knew he left home he was so sound asleep!

My favorite baby Africanism is do-do. Ask Brian Beidebach to tell you his do-do story sometime. Its pretty funny. He thought the man living in the flat at their house was the most regular person he had ever met.
