"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle."-quote from the Haven

Shout out to precious Rachel Pugh, who is 23 today!!! We decorated(-ish) the house and her mosquito net for the occasion with pink streamers. Mr. Leonard even baked her a special cake!

Today at Haven 1 we did a couple of evaluations on Alfred and Kelly. Caroline walked us through the process of checking the infant’s fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and their language skills. We had a little fun during feeding/swallowing therapy and thought we would try out wearing babies in our chitenges.
"SUPER"-visor Caroline giving us instructions while having a baby chintenged to her. TALENT.

All of the other women here do it, why not try it!?!?!! I was a little hesitant at first; afraid that the baby would just slip out! However, once the babies were all situated I realized how functional the concept of keeping a baby tied to you is. It allows you to have both hands free so we can multi-task. GENIUS!

The little cutie on my back, Darcie, was the culprit who pooped on me today. Not cool.

It was a hard day at Haven 3, lots of crying (babies do NOT like "tummy time") but especially from Sidney. She was crying constantly and you could tell she was struggling to breathe. She was taken to the clinic nearby and we discovered she was suffering from asthma and pneumonia. Not a good combination. She is being well taken care of with medications and lots of love and rest! But please keep baby Sidney in your prayers!
