as we mentioned before ellen graduated (forced) to sleep in a big bed. we left the pack and play behind in bamako. then last night she had a room all to herself. that actually was a first and she is over a year old. she woke up at 3:28 this morning and got scared because she was all alone. i took a while to get settled down and she was ok. the other day she woke up from a nap and i heard some rustling in the room. since she wasn't crying i left her for a while and then i got nervous about what she was getting into. i opened up the door to find here on the table next to her bed playing with things she isn't allowed to touch. she was having a blast.
