I am amazed by the wonderful world of blendshapes. At last Tracy has facial expressions! They are not perfect but they certainly give this spark of life to her. I did as many blendshapes as are needed for the animation so I thankfully did not have to work on all the phonemes and visemes. Some of them didn't turn out the way I hoped but at least I got the basics down. All that is left now is the Mother's blendshapes and we can finally start animating them. This work is finally paying off.
