For the last two weeks, she slept on a mattress wedged in between our bed and the floor. She's a cuddler and will often sleep part of the night with us, but when she gets too hot (and that happens often in Niger), we both prefer having our own space. It was a good thing that we had that mattress there, too. One morning I woke up and found her sleeping on the mattress when I knew I'd pulled her up to nurse her earlier in the morning. She must have rolled off the bed (she was rolling all over and everywhere at that time). If she cried about it - neither of us ever woke up.She must not have been too traumatized - as she slept sweetly for another couple of hours that morning!

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.Ps 1:1-4

- We leave at 2:45 a.m. from NIAMEY flying to CASABLANCA.
- Our next flight leaves CASA at 10:45 a.m. and arrives in JFK, NEW YORK at 2:45 in the afternoon, local time.
- Our almost final leg of the trip will hopefully depart JFK at 7:00 p.m. and arrive in Detroit at 9:33 p.m....
- ...at which point we hope in the vans, buckle half the kids into carseats and head for Lansing. Maybe we'll stop and get a Frosty on the way!

When it is already 105 or hotter, the heat from all those candles is unbearable!
He would have convinced you, too... just look at that sweet face! =D
I've got tons more photos from his party, but those will have to wait until I'm back in Michigan to post. This post was just a little "pat on the back" to myself, because I was so pleased with how his cake turned out.
