Little Boy

Being at Tenwek, we have limited ultrasound capability. The first two ultrasounds looked like a girl. The third thought maybe a boy. The fourth confirmed a girl. The fifth called it into question. The sixth seemed to clinch a boy, but how sure can you be after needing six scans. So we stopped looking. Nevertheless, we will always have this lovely gift to remind us of the saga. I guess Maggie can wear hers and maybe some other later girl will enjoy the other.


Nevertheless, here's our little boy, decked in blue, which has no gender connotation whatsoever in Kenyan culture. He's looking a little tired, but he's doing fine.

Yes we can save the little sister outfit I thought would be appropriate (haha) for another one in the family. So glad you are here Benjamin. We love you....

You could post a new picture every day and we'd never get tired of looking at them. Thanks for sharing - he already looks like he's changing a bit. Love to all of you! The NYC Rimbos
