We meet with the artisans every other Monday morning. It's a chance for us to catch up and talk about the products. We have English class and learn some things in their languages. My favorite part, though, is seeing the babies.

This is Ku Lo's newest daughter, born just a few weeks ago. Couldn't you just eat her up?

Meh Mo is never without a baby in her arms. We spend most of our time passing the babies around, but she always gets first dibs.

Dr. Salai is a baby whisperer and a translator. These were the oldest and youngest people at our HCHT meeting that day:

Huang Nan and her daughter. She won't give me the time of day; I love the sassy ones. 

This is me with Huang Nan's baby boy. He is such a lovebug. Look at those chubby cheeks!

We try to make it a policy to invite new volunteers with cute babies to cuddle: 

My own baby (almost two now!) reading books with two of the of the sweet girls from the Village Center. She's growing up thinking these girls are about the coolest people ever; she's convinced she's one of the "big girls." They got a chance to practice their reading for school and she soaked up the story.

I love raising our children together. At the Village Center, we're firm believers that it really does take a village!
