Happy New Year everyone.  I have decided that being home is much better than being out in the wild.  I have fresh water, fresh fruit, muesli and of course my bottle.  So at 5pm I take off to do my wild child thing and come back every morning.  I have been spending a lot of time with my nose in my pouch, cleaning and licking.  My Mummies are wondering if I am getting ready for a baby or if my baby is already there.  They are not going to look as they know it is my baby and I will take care of it like a good Mummy.

My baby  joey will be born alive at a very immature stage when it is only about 2 cm long and weighs less than a gram. Immediately after birth it will crawl up my body and enter my pouch. My baby will attach its mouth to one of my four teats, which then enlarges to hold my baby in place.

For now I enjoy hanging with my little sis Josie.  She still has so much wonderment in her eyes as she explores the garden.  I love just watching her.
