This is the newest addition to one of our family friends. She is such a doll and believe it or not she actually was born with eyes this blue. The first time we saw her in the hospital I was so surprised when she opened them up and they were bright, bright blue. Anyways, we tried to get some of the other two kiddos but were unsuccessful. I guess that is what you get when you try to do all of this in your living room with the light from the windows.
