Today when we went to the aquarium, the 8-month old baby beluga, Nunavik, was swimming with his mama, Puiji. I shared much of my pregnancy with Puiji's highly-publicized pregnancy and felt quite a maternal connection with her. Today's visit was the first time we've seen the calf swimming freely. He stayed near his mama as they swam laps around the front pool, where we could view from above and below the surface. Like Tye, Nunavik is still nursing; I wish I could have seen that!
