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?

that is one cute kiddo! You know, it seems I may have heard something about indigo helping with heat rash...where are you going for vacation?

I hope the indigo helped his rash, but my question is, does the indigo wash off?????? If it does not----you two look pretty cute in BLUE !!!!!!
