In case you haven't guessed, my favorite place to be is at the Infant House. Brandy is in charge of the house, overseeing the care of 10 infants under the age of 3 and the moms and other older girls who help keep the house functioning smoothly around the clock.
I usually arrive between 6:00 AM and 7:00 AM to help with breakfast. The babies have been up since 4:00 AM, are bathed and dressed, and waiting in their highchairs for breakfast.
This morning the babies had oatmeal with milk and Moon Pies. At snack time, Poppie brought by individual servings of Low Fat Granola. At lunch, the babies had Ramon Noodles and vegetables Tonight the babies had rice and vegetables with broth and Kool Aid.
The moms and staff eat the same thing as the babies except they get bigger bowls and larger servings. Tortias are served several times a week. The other volunteer and I made pancakes for the Moms this morning.
