Olina Omwana Mulungi

Olina Omwana Mulungi means "you have a beautiful baby" in Luganda.  There are lots of beautiful babies around, so it's a good thing to know how to say to moms.  It wasn't until this week though that we got to hold some of the babies.  We were back at the dressmaker (where else do we hang out?!) and some neighborhood mothers let us hold Caretan, below left with Leigh, and Shannon, below right with me.  Note that Shannon is wearing a headband fashioned from the left over fabric of the new skirt I am wearing.  Matching!

And here is a video of some other new friends demonstrating their counting skills for me.  Great job!
