December 2015: It was a dark and stormy morning, and high in a corner of the big glass building where babies come from, little Marlon Taijin was having an out-of-body experience. The voice he knew so well was now coming from over there, across the room, and he felt detached. How strange it was to breathe cool air and flail one's arms and legs without bounds. Now when he opened his eyes, the most dazzling scenes appeared before him, bouncing and whirling. Above all, the silence was just strange.

February 2016: fifty days old! It seems like such a big number, but looking back through our photos I see that much time has passed and there has been lots of growing.
