2019 babies ( Ragtag )

Dave ♂

DOB: 04 May 2019
Mother: Dana
Father: unknown

Daria survives and now Dana has another baby this time and it’s a boy – I called Dave and I think so far he has lived up to his name as one brave and healthy baby, probably a bit too spunky for his mum to handle and to make her job more demanding is that her daughter Daria seems to be away hanging around with her uncle Taggy in Bossy’s troop all the time she hardly does what most other yearling girls at her age do – that is, to help babysitting their younger baby siblings !

The first time I met Dave – he’s already a looker then !

Not as cute as Dopey he is still remarkable though !


Meet baby Dave 🙂

Regardless, Dave so far has done very well – he is one cute-looking boy with a protruding umbilicus – or more precisely a paraumbilical hernia which in humans should regress over time and I suspect the same should happen with Dave too !

My belly button sticks out a bit but it’s okay !

2019 babies ( Löwina )

Pete ♂

DOB: 17 April 2019
Mother: Pepper
Father : Likely to be Leo

Pete is the first baby born to Löwina’s troop this year. He is also the first baby born to new mum Pepper too. Pepper has quite a fiery personality and she is obsessed with safely for her son. So far she has remained suspicious of everyone around her, even her own members from the same troop if they dare approach her baby son. She would lash out at anyone trying to get too close to him !

Mum pepper ( left holding Pete ) – she is someone you don’t want to mess with !

But Pete is naturally one curious boy – he is just waiting for the opportunity !

Pete is a lively little boy on the rare occasions when mum cut him some slack. I am pretty sure he is more capable than what his mum makes him appear to be…

But Pepper just makes him nurse all the time !


Meet baby Pete !

2019 babies ( Nora )

Celessa

DOB: 03 may 2019
Mother: Nora
Father: Bruce

Celessa is named in memory of her late sister Cessa who lived for only 2 months back in 2017. Cessa probably was one of the cutest girls that year and she stole a lot of our viewers’ hearts as her mum Nora wasn’t exactly very motherly towards her in the beginning 🙁 but she just disappeared when things began to look up for her, how sad 🙁

The late Cessa with mum Nora, taken when the latter had finally warmed up to her…

I was really overjoyed to see Nora has given birth to a girl this year and what’s even more ecstatic is that this little baby girl is almost a spitting image of Cessa – it’s like she has come back from heaven !

Celessa at about 2 weeks old…

Her face is a bit longer than Cessa’s but they have the same eyes and nose I think 🙂

Celessa so far seems to be doing well with mum Nora. Perhaps after 3 kids, Nora, the young matriarch has settled down to her combined role as a leader and a mother well. She could be still a bit rough at times but that is nowhere near what she had done to Cessa. Hopefully she will keep it this way 🙂

Nora is definitely a lot nicer to her daughter this time round !

Ok, she could be a bit overbearing at times !


Celessa’s first proper debut – the day I finally learnt she’s a girl !


She is quite a handful, isn’t she ?

2019 babies ( SH )

Asher ( Ash )

DOB: 30 April 2019
Mother: Sophia
Father: unknown

Asher ( Ash ) is a miracle baby to her mother Sophia who was sterilized with laparoscoipic tubectomy back in 2016. I thought Ava, her girl born in summer 2016 would be her last baby ever but then nature has its way to stage a comeback and it was a pleasant surprise to me to find her nursing a baby out of the blue 3 years following a procedure that should have stripped her of fertility for life !

That’s how I found Asher the first time – at first I thought Sophia was holding someone else’s baby !

Ava, born in 2016 was once thought to be Sophia’s last baby ever….

Sophia has beaten tubectomy. A case of nature triumphing over men.


Ash, the miracle baby 🙂

Don’t let her mum’s overprotectiveness fool you, Ash is no milk bar addict – he is in fact a spunky little baby. He could accomplish more and a whole lot more than his age would suggest. He’s been seen climbing treetops at least 10 metres high at a tender age of 8 weeks ! I consider him to be one of the most advanced babies I’ve ever seen !

Yes, indeed Ash is no couch potato at all !


He certainly is one of the best, if not the best there !


Bobette

DOB: 01 June 2019
Mother: Martha
Father: unknown

I thought I met Martha for the very first time in late 2016 when I first laid eyes on Button, her baby born in 2016 who was probably one of the cutest babies in Monkey Hill. Little did I know that I had actually met her at least 3 years back, well before I began to turn filming the monkeys in Monkey Hill as a habit. The point is, not only Martha is a seasoned mum she’s already quite old and is teetering towards the end of her reproductive life as we speak now in 2019.

Button was so cute, wasn’t he ? He’s now three years old and is still doing well as we speak !

Bobbin disappeared when he just turned 6 months old 🙁

Her last baby Bobbin, born in 2017 disappeared around December that year and was presumed dead. She skipped a year in 2017 and just as I thought she would do so again this year she surprised me with Bobette. And what a pleasant surprise this lil baby is as she begins to look more and more like Bobbin each time I see her. It certainly feels like Bobbin has come back again 🙂

Yes, that tiny thing clinging on Martha’s back is Bobette. She’s no more than a day’s old then !

She’s one of the smallest baby this season. I suspect she’s a preemie too !

Bobette, nurse more to grow strong ! She’s going to become pretty like mum with those long eyelashes !

But nursing is tiring too. Bobette has to take a few naps during one feeding session 🙂

Bobette is filling out a bit. She’s looking increasingly like Bobbin with those huge haunting eyes !

Stay strong, Bobette !


That’s how I met Bobette the first time 🙂


The first time I knew she’s a girl 🙂


Bobette so we have finally settled a name for you !
