Once the dress was nearly done, she got really amped up – although all three of the kids tend to get amped up about 30 minutes before dinnertime. My own kids used to do that; I called it the witching hour. But her excitement was overwhelming and it was hard to get her to hold still for a photo shoot.
|She was so proud to show her daddy.|
Jen was taking pictures of Alison and me and Colin decided he wanted to get into the action – but as a photographer, not a model!
At first, Eli wanted nothing to do with pictures, but then he came around. Aren’t his eyes just amazing? I love his sweetness, too. Last night, for example, he came three times into Alison’s room where I was reading her a story before bed to ask me to check on him before I went downstairs. He’s a huge snuggler and if you ever get asked to check on Eli, get ready to give that boy some hugs.
And here's a final photo, a selfie of Alison and me.
