Baby Photos And Growth


  • In the picture, the tiny tot was dressed in navy slippers and a beige beanie with his uniform. He could be seen smiling and eager to learn.
  • Sponge seems to be still learning how to stand and walk on his own, as he doesn’t appear to be standing upright in one of the pictures. And, in the rest of the shared pictures, he is held by an older woman that might be one of the gqom queen’s aunties or Sponge’s nanny.
  • After netizens viewed the one pictures, their hearts were pulled by the cuteness overload in the little boy’s attire.

One of the commenters wrote,

“So cute ❤️.”

Another commenter said,

“Woow! So cute. Fuze mamakhe [Just like his mama] .❤️❤️❤️❤️”

In one of the pictures shared, Babes Wodumo zoomed into the uniform’s logo on Sponge’s shirt pocket which read:

Mampintsha and Babes Wodumo hosted a colorful Sip and See party for their son , Sponge Wodumo, three months after his arrival.(August 2021)

The party provided an opportunity to have friends and family over at one time to meet and greet a new baby or child shortly after birth. It allows the parents, who may be exhausted, to introduce the new addition to the family to everyone at once, rather than spreading out visits over weeks or months.

“Sponge Wodumo’s Baby view party. I wanna thank everyone who made my day yesterday I have no words I don’t know where to start from the bottom of my heart thank you,” Babes said
