The holidays came and went in a blur as usual, and although nobody likes to step on a scale this time of year, we have begun measuring the weights of the juveniles in our transit area more often. This will allow us to better assess their nutrition and ensure they are growing properly. Melky, Bunga, Ongky and the rest are doing well, and it is easier to catch them on their way in for the night as they are often too anxious to go out to the playground earlier in the day to bother being weighed. Ucil has graduated and is now hanging out with the older babies, which has him spending more time playing and less time trying to escape.

Construction continues at the new center, so we are using the time to prepare equipment and supplies that will need to be moved. Also, plans are being made and new protocols designed to ensure that daily activities will run smoothly once we are able to settle in.
