Ugandan Garbbed Mama

Posted on: July 20, 2010

We’ve been pleasantly busy this week with our long distance visitors. First it was Auntie Susie and then a couple of nights ago Aunt Carolyn and Uncle E drove in to Ottawa (en route to Halifax) for a visit. Seeing as they live abroad (Uganda and East Timor) this is the first time they’ve met their little nephew. And they came bearing so many gifts! Aunt C generously spoiled us with all her wares from abroad. So for today, Niko has a Mama decked out in something out of the norm: a long and flowy colourful sundress, three pink bangles made from animal horn, a pair of pink hooped earrings made from bone, and a thick beaded necklace.

Niko seems to like the new look; I just have to remember to be aware of what’s dangling from my ears. Otherwise, I could end up in a painful situation as his curious (check out his curiosity in the bottom pic) little hands grab hold of the hoops. And already he’s reached for them, and thankfully I was aware. So hopefully I can keep that up. Niko was also spoiled with a really cool silhouetted elephant painting, as well as two little jungle finger puppets, and an elephant that pops out of a cone (which actually reminds of a toy that fascinated me as a child).
