Family Update

Well, we wanted to keep you all apprised of our family while we're off in Cameroon as well. So rather than talk about work, here's a little update on the family.

Cathen is doing great. She is now 6.5 months old, is taking solids (she loves rice cereal and avocados, and should start sweet potatoes in the next couple days), sitting on her own, and coming dangerously close to crawling. It'll only be a matter of weeks before she is completely mobile... we need to start baby-proofing! Lindsay and I are adjusting to being parents in a new home. Lindsay has had the daunting job of being the primary caretaker for Cathen and working part-time on the pediatrics ward, but she has graciously entered into her new schedule, and has been tremendously resilient to the challenges of motherhood and work in an unfamiliar environment. I have been enjoying life at Mbingo: hiking, playing guitar, eating new foods, experiencing new customs, and yes, also working.

Here are some photos from taken in our front yard today:
