Today our amazing little man Simoni turns four – I can hardly believe it! When I met him, he was two and a half and couldn’t walk at all, just scoot across the floor, because his rickets were so bad. This was him a few months in, when he still needed a hand just to get across uneven ground.
And take a look at him dancing and playing this past December! This change is DIRECTLY attributable to the kids getting vitamins with iron every day, a healthier diet, and more attention because more mamas have been hired – ALL things that you have helped us to do. Look at the change in Simoni’s demeanor – he used to be such a sad, scared little thing. He has blossomed into the funniest, cheekiest little boy you could hope to know. Thank you so much for being part of it!
He’s such a smart and funny little guy – here is him singing the Nakupenda song (I love you), although he gets a little distracted along the way – he likes the camera! – then moving on to his very special rendition of “Head, shoulders, knees, and toes.”
Happy fourth birthday little guy, I am so insanely proud of you!
PS: If you can’t get enough Simoni (and who could?), his adorable (and hysterical) singing talents are also showcased here with the Em-bily song and his actually really impressive duet with Mama Pendo.
