You might be asking, who's Allison? And why does she need oxygen? Why, Allison is Emily's stuffed bear, of course! We noticed the scotch tape across her bear's face the other day and after some questioning, Emily explained that she was pretending Allison needs oxygen! It's been about four years now since we've had to hook Emily up to oxygen, but apparently she remembers. She's very matter of fact about her bear's needs...perhaps she thinks all kids needed to wear a nasal cannula for oxygen?!
She is quite the little mother and has many kids to tend to. She takes her job very seriously and she sometimes requests that we be very quiet because her kids are sleeping. Last weekend she HAD to bring Allison and her (doll) stroller along to the mall and we had a couple people ask if she was pushing a real baby under the blanket. I believe it was also Allison who was acting up in church a few weeks ago when Emily wanted to excuse herself to "calm her down." Since we were sitting in the back row, I let her stand behind us and it was cute to watch her jiggling her hip, bouncing Allison and patting her back to soothe her. I think she's going to be a great big sister :)
