Allie did sleep most of the visit, but on the last visit everyone got to say goodbye and see you soon and during Auntie Trisha's moment, Allie opened up those eyes! Yes... I'd say it had something to do with the prodding by Granma and Aunt Tammy before Trisha got in the room, but she opened her eyes which required a billion more pictures and cheers and excitement. She has the most beautiful deep eyes, so it is hard not to get lost in them.
The next morning as the visitors were driving back home to Chicago, Allie awoke bright and early and was eager to play. Unfortunately, they didn't get to see this so Mommy played with her little girl and took a million more pictures. Thank goodness for digital!
