Kendrix, aka Oso, was a baby who was well loved. Everyone was drawn to him, showering him with love and attention. He was such a little flirt with all the ladies; he had many of the MCDC staff wrapped around his little fingers (with much disapproval from his Aunty Goonana). He earned the name baby Oso (bear) because his personality fit just that of a bear. Some days he was happy and smiley, most times he growled like a bear when he was hungry or tired. His hair was just like Xandra’s when she was a baby – sticking straight up like the little troll dolls. He was so well loved and constantly being held. Aunties Rosa and Goonana both loved to walk him around to put him to sleep (which did not make his dad Stan happy when Stan would have to wake up at 3am and walk him around to get him to go back to sleep). Glorianna had the magic touch – every time she held him and walked him around, he would fall asleep. He acted like his dad and didn’t like to smile for the first couple of months after he was born but when he did, his precious smile could light up the entire room; Stan was the one who got him to smile first. Baby Oso was a God-sent gift who taught us to love with all of our hearts.
