Babies all growed up...part one

Every once in a while I get the beautiful privilege to see one of the babies I've previously caught. The next few post will be of the babies I've caught, followed by a picture or two of them all "growed" up!! Some will be when they are a month or so old, while others I've got to see when they are almost a year or more. :)
Catch # 6
This is Noralyne, so excited to be a mama!!
She named her baby after her!! Sara was born on January 27, 2011 
was 51 cm long and weighed 3.09 kilos. Such a sweet baby!!
Here is Sara and her mama at 9 months old. Isn't she a beautiful little lady?
 Little Sara and her midwife Sara. We make quite the pair, huh? :)

 Just look into those eyes and try and tell her no.

It is so much fun seeing these babies grow up. 
Keep an eye out for more updates like this one!!

Tastes like....

So, while Tianne and I were in the market today we saw some, shall we say. I was calmly and happily selecting my fruit when I heard Tianne exclaim, "What are those? Are those bats?!?!" I looked over and sure enough, half a dozen bats are hanging on strings.

For just 200 pesos I could buy myself a bat!!
 And what might you do with a bat you ask?
Eat it of course!! They taste like wild boar... or so this guy says.
Doesn't he look tasty?
They remind me of the black bats in the Black Forest....gotta love Ted Dekker!!

Fun Poem!!

I wish I was a fetus
I never would be bored
Sitting in my uterus
Swinging on my cord.

To worry granny midwives
I'd be a proper beast
I'd change position on the hour
Transverse, oblique then breech.

To student midwives I'd present
A mystifying case
I'd hide myself inside the os
And leave an empty space.

I'd tie my cord into a knot
And wave it through the cervix
I'd give the midwives such a shock
And laugh off all my vernix.

And when my membranes rupture
I'd be a right old pest
Presenting large diameters
I'd transversely arrest.

I'd tell my pal placenta
To get himself detached
To theatre then the lot of us
Would pronto be dispatched.

And when they start to caesar
I'd laugh and think "Tee hee!'
When no one else is looking
I'll come vaginally.
