My African "Toto"

The word for baby in Swahili is "mtoto", aka "toto".  Micah sure makes a cute African one dressed in full gear :) Whenever I go to the Markets around here, it never fails that I come home with something I didn't intend on buying. This lovely African outfit is a perfect example. A lady kept on begging me to buy it from her, so I eventually gave in-mostly just so she would leave me alone. It only cost me 50 shillings (which is less than a dollar), so I was not too upset with the purchase. I bought it several months ago and had forgotten about it until I recently ran across it in Micah's closet. I could tell it was getting way too small for him, so I thought I had better get some pictures while I could. I especially love his little diaper hanging out.
