We all know how quickly kids grow up, but does it ever really cease to shock just how fast they do it?! You may remember our post about Kaija, Kwera’s newborn boy, back in October.

Now at 6 months, Kaija is already incredibly mobile. He’s progressed from clinging to Kwera’s belly to riding on her back, and he is constantly exploring his environment while toddling about unsteadily on two legs, or crawling on all fours. He’s also become more vocally active, graduating from baby coos to joining in on pant-hoots and pant grunting to approaching males.

Despite his impressive development, there are still times where we’re reminded of just how small he still is: when exploring tree climbing on his own, Kaija recently looked shocked to find himself at the height of 3 meters. His whimpers brought a hasty Kwera running to his aide, and she, along with sisters Karibu and Karo, immediately began to groom away his distress.
