We spent a good half hour holding babies and toddlers, swinging them around and playing and laughing. They were so eager to smile at us. As far as I could tell, there were three new babies for a total of eight. I think we would have been content to stay in there all day if there weren't other kids to see.
After killing some time post lunch, we returned to the orph once nap time was over. The chaos of the morning was definitely absent in the afternoon, which was so so great. It enabled us to spend a lot more quality time actually playing with kids. Some of the boys became totally entranced when Donna started coloring tie dye fireworks, and they wanted to pose for the camera with each one when it was finished. I got to spend some bonding time with Ezra (he needs a family!) playing clapping games. Jackson (he also needs a family!) and I played Rock Paper Scissors, and it turns out he is a fantastic artist! I also spent some time with Miles, who has some sort of developmental delay (seems to be some autistic tendencies in my opinion), getting to know him. I discovered he has a great laugh! I had never heard him make a sound before today, in any of my visits previously. To be fair, today was also the first time I tried tickling him.
