Caroline’s eyes are opening, originally uploaded by Lindsay Ellis.

Florida mentioned that she hadn’t seen Caroline’s eyes open yet. Yes, they are actually functional, and opening more and more every day. I realize, though, that we’ve most often photographed her in her peaceful sleeping state because, when awake, she is usually in our arms being talked to or rocked lest she begin crying. We hope that there are more and more quiet, alert moments in our life together soon.
