Babies everywhere!

The hens aren't the only new moms these days.

Congratulations to Martanda for his second "flower"--a beautiful baby girl!

And that's not all. Today, as every day, I walked to the Old Man's room near which I park my bike. Today, as every day, I said my hello. But today, instead of the every day polite nod I usually receive in response, he eagerly jumped from his bed and ran to my side. Never have I seen such a smile! He was radiating joy and pride and I couldn't figure out why.

Until he started touching my hair, pointing towards Two Dams, and making funny movements with his hands to show a big belly and something pushing down. His baby girl had a baby of her own!

So the Old Man and the Steward are cherishing the treasure of new life in (relatively) far off places. Congrats to you both!
