Little Boy Blue and His Mama

Yesterday we went to a naming ceremony. The baby is a little girl and her name is Mariam. Like most all other Tuareg fetes, we get dressed up in our best clothes and indidgo headscarves, gather together and eat good food and drink tea.

Here are a few pictures of us after the affair when the indigo from my headscarf has managed to cover just about every inch of exposed skin. Micah's skin is the same color as his eyes :)

I wonder if indigo does anything for heat rash?

The Hot Season II

My poor baby has heat rash like you wouldn't believe. This photo doesn't do it justice. This is just one of the reasons why we need to go on vacation.

Micah's New Haircut

It takes a little getting used to :)

The Hot Season

What is one to do when there's no electricty and it's 104F INSIDE the house?

Why, set up the pool, of course!
