Today was the first time that Leah has really made a lot of noise, almost our whole visit she was jabbering and talking away to herself and us. It was lovely to hear. I told her if she managed to say “dada” before “mama” I would buy her a car for her 17th birthday!
We also got some bad news about our visits for the next few days, as I’ve already mentioned there is a virus going round the whole orphanage at the moment. Leah has been on antibiotics for a few days and has almost recovered but a lot of the other babies are just starting to get sick. The high doctor has decided that there will be no visits allowed for the next 3-4 days to give the babies time to recover. It’s a sensible and understandable decision but for the next few days the hotel will be full of people not getting their ‘baby fix’, it could all get a little ‘Lord of the Flies’.!!
Don’t worry about the supply of pictures running out in the mean time, we’ve taken an insane amount of pictures and video clips already, slightly over 6 gigabytes at the last count!!!
Philip, Amanda & Leah
