9/29/2015 - This morning there was much anticipation at the nursery as a new baby boy arrived from Turkana in Northern Kenya. All the orphans came out of their pens full of excitement; as if they knew it wasn’t just a normal morning. Oltaiyoni came out of her pen to greet Lasayen, Kamok and Mbegu who were waiting for her outside. They touched and exchanged trunks as a sign of greeting and together they met Dupotto who was waiting for her friend Embu to come out. When Embu came out they all went wild, even those that were still inside their pens. They broke out trumpeting and rumbling like a musical band, but a brass one in a very low tone. Some of the older girls, Arruba, Suswa, Rorogoi and Mashariki were pushing and breaking down the short bushes attached to the stockades. The young ones were chasing the warthogs around and the boys paired up in pushing games, Sokotei with Sirimon and Enkikwe with Olsekki. No one was left out and they were all active doing something in pairs or groups. The games came to an end with the arrival of milk hour and by then almost everyone was exhausted – there was no hurrying and fighting for who got to the milk first!
