Baba is the Amharic word for father.
Marin never called me Baba. She has always called me Daddy. Last week she started calling me Baba and has called me that exclusively since then.
It was really emotional for me. I may be reading way t0o much into this because our kids are total pranksters and they are always searching for new ways to mess with our heads, but it feels like she is finally truly accepting me as her forever father.
