Every time I scrapbook, I can't help look back at earlier pages of Lia and Emma. Seeing the differences in the way they are growing up makes me tear! (sniff sniff) When Lia was about 4 months she had NO hair and now at 6, there is plenty! She never slept as a baby.....that hasn't changed and being the only child for 4 1/2 years made me a little nervous when Emma arrived but from day one, they were destined for each other.

This picture was taken on her 6th Birthday. Well actually, her Birthday party. By the end of the day, even Energizer Bunny Lia was pooped! I love this pic of her. It captures those moments that we wish we can freeze forever.

The Layout also qualifies for a few challenges........
