Jonah has adopted a new baby from Ethiopia. Her name is undecided as yet because both baby and daddy got tired and needed to go to bed. It was so sweet. At first he was not sure he could touch her. I handed him the bottle and asked him to feed the baby and voila! instant daddy! In the bottom picture he is rocking baby to sleep.
I know some might think it's weird that I bought my son a baby but I ask you this- Is it fair that we encourage girls to be good mommy's but not boys to be good daddy's? Is it no wonder that boys aren't as maternal? I'm not saying that giving Jonah a baby doll now is going to make him a good daddy but I think it will teach him more gentleness. I'm not into the whole non-genderizing phenomena that's going on. I think there is a possibility that in our efforts to "un-gender" we will just confuse the natural process of things, but I think the overall idea of balance has some good points.
Take a look at what a good daddy Jonah is. Ok so he did bite the babies hand a little bit but he was gentle for the most part. My boy is a sweetie and I loves him so much!
Um, yes that is Jonah's baby bouncer and yes, the thing almost touches the floor because Jonah is too big for it.
