Layout - Our Wee Elmo Family

I've been playing catch-up!  While looking through their current Baby Albums, my 2 year old wee girl asked why she only had a few pages in her book, when her 4 year old big brother had TWO FULL BOOKS.  YES, she could articulate that emotion.  YES, Mommy guilt hit hard and I have been putting in some much needed time on this neglected hobby of mine.  And YES, the first actual layout I have made, (not PL style), is actually for her big brother's book.  hahahahaha

But seriously, how cute is this picture!?!?  When Aiden was almost 2, and we were expecting our second baby (the aforementioned deep question asker), we wanted to help prepare him for the changes that a new baby would bring.  So we used his collection of Elmo stuffies to put together a brilliant Elmo family analogy.  Totally on his level.  Totally worked.  For the rest of my pregnancy, and well after, he called the Elmo stuffies by their family names; Daddy Elmo, Mommy Elmo, Aiden Elmo and Baby Elmo.  And when Miss S arrived, he showed her her Baby Elmo and said 'This is you!'  Adorable.  Layout needed.  Guilt still present, but semi-justified.  haha

I DID make Soph a PL card of the event (see below), but felt the full layout belonged in Aiden's album, rather than hers.
