Our MiMi

I shared on our blog not too long ago that Jax, our 3 year old, started calling our Mia, Mimi. He said he didn't want to call her Mia anymore, that he wanted to call her Mimi. Well, the other day I was looking at this blog and found out that Mimi means little girl or baby girl in Amharic, the language spoken in Ethiopia. I had no idea, but I love the name we chose even more now.

When we chose the name, we didn't know our Mimi was in Ethiopia, but God knew. Again, I love how God cares about the details! I think Mimi will be a great nickname for our Mia, our baby girl.

Jax wanted me to read him "Mia's book" before nap the other day. My BFF, Ashley got this little book for our girl when we were shopping in Target one day. I read it to Jax and then he wanted to sleep with it. I had to take this picture of him clutching his Mimi's book.


  1. So precious! My favorite part about watching the journey that our friends have been on with adoption has been the response of their children. How faithful and loving they are!

  2. Love the name Mimi!! One of my best friends is named Mimi! So sweet! :)
