Where Facebook fails me

Writing. Facebook just isn't oriented towards me waxing thoughtful in prose, so I'm definitely going to continue to do it here.

I got to hug a baby today. Normally I'm "meh" on kids, but here in Afghanistan the kids are absolutely adorable--they're a good-looking people in general. I was having my twice-weekly meeting with women and kids, and after wrapping their five-month-old in swaddling clothes, a woman and her mother in law asked if I wanted to hold the baby.

So I did. That little man had a smile that is going to knock 'em dead in 15 years. There is a photo, but I don't have it yet.

Then one of the E-4s wanted to hold him, so she did and he pooped. :) No mess on her, fortunately.

Awwww...babies are pretty darn cool. They're fun to give back, too. ;-)

His mommy jokingly asked if we wanted to keep him, dress him, educate him, and give him back THEN!

I dont' mind older kids that you can interact with. But I have to admit most babies are pretty cute.
