    This is the BEST pic of Fiona, IMHO!😊

    Pure magic! One of the big hippos was doing slow blinkies just like a cat–it was obviously happy!

    I think Henry has become fond of Fiona.

    I’m SO impressed with Henry’s patience and comfort level around Baby Fi lately. Good job, Henry!

    Flippy hippo ears = flippo ears!

      I like that!

        My tablet’s autocorrect didn’t. It changed both “flippy” and “flippo” to “flipping.” I really need to teach it some cute vocabulary.

      The earsies were the best part! And I love flippo ears! I’m using that from now on.

      Also, much Fiona kronshing in this video. What more can you ask for? A super cute selfie?! Yes!!!

    I guess it’s like kissing! Definitely physical snugglies that they are all enjoying. Heartwarming.

    As far as I am concerned, this is a multi-faceted miracle. Not only is Fiona alive and healthy, but she is re-integrating with her family. A great deal of praying and hard work went into bringing this to pass, and so many behind-the-scenes people who will never be publicly… I don’t know what l’m trying to say. But this is possibly the biggest happy I’ve had this year.

      Hear, hear!

      I’m not sure exactly why Fiona, her development, and her integration with her family make me so happy. Maybe it’s her innocent joy with, and affection for, her caretakers and now her family. I just love her.

    I have to admit that I still feel a little apprehensive when I see Fiona’s head almost Henry’s mouth, she’s so small compared to him.

    • JenDeyan July 15, 2017 / 9:41 pm

      Bibi’s there to knock some sense into him if things get rough. I think Fiona’s going to be a-okay.

    • Smartypants July 16, 2017 / 3:30 pm

      I worry too – it’s just my nature – but if Henry forgets himself, we’ve got Bibi and the human care team keeping a close eye on things. And I’m sure they’ve left that exit open for Fiona if she wants to retreat.

    I haz a happy.

    I was taken by the little rolls of fat around Fiona’s neck — so adorable on babies! And it’s just wonderful seeing her with both her parents. The staff at that zoo has done just AMAZINGLY great work with Fiona and her parents — I hope they get some of the public recognition they SO richly deserve!!
