I took a little break for the holiday and now I am ready to start blogging again. I think. But anyway let’s start things off with some photos of the last ?couple? of weeks
Things are busy busy at Neema with 45 babies and toddlers under 5. Our small baby room (non-crawlers) is full with 10, plus 1 in isolation! Then we have 9 crawlers/beginning walkers and 21 toddlers! That’s a huge handful for sure. We also have a set of triplets with their Mama and another baby with her young mama staying with us. But I wouldn’t have it any other way. Baby Saruni is our newest arrival. Thankfully his grandmother (Bibi) is staying with him while we have him in isolation. He’s only 1.65kg (just over 3lbs!). He was premature and born out in the Masai village and, unfortunately, his mother passed away. Bahati turned 3 this month! (2 Jan)Malikia and Julius (twins) also turned 3 this month! (12 Jan)Patricia turned 1! (7th Jan)Sweet baby Nuriath is back with us at Neema after about two weeks in the hospital! We’re keeping a close eye on her, and appreciate your prayers.This is a photo of Tumaini just for fun. Gosh, I love this boy and I cannot believe how grown up he’s gotten! Baby Nengai at 5 weeks! She’s smiling a ton these days and just melting my heart. She especially likes to smile after leaving me a big stinky poo in her nappy.Hanging out with baby Nengai. It’s so hard to wrap my head around Tumaini was this size!
Lastly, on the 31st of December we said goodbye to Lekishoni. This sweet little boy lived such a short life and I know we loved him well in the time that he had. His twin, Loitapuaki, is still in ICU but has been improving. It’s always hard to say goodbye to a little life cut short too soon.
