lolo & lukuru

Sweet little Lomela is definately the bigshot at the nursery. Since Kata is now BFF with Eleke, Lolo's has transferred her considerable affections to Lukuru - the smallest in the nursery. They make quite a pair - Lomela has eaten her way into her six year old body and Lukuru is still barely bigger than a banana.

Lolo watches over Lukuru every night in her nearby box, and the mamas often come in to find Lomela staring at Lukuru lovingly. Mama Micheline is both Lomela's substitute mother and Lukurus, and so the rest of the mamas call them sisters:)

Lomela grabs Lukuru's foot!
