What is a Baby Anyway?

Happy Monday morning everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I have another Pebbles Seen and Noted layout to share today, this time about Spencer and his reaction when Claire was born. For those unfamiliar with Spencer you should know that he is autistic and non-verbal. It is often hard to explain abstract things to him so I don't believe he really understood what was going on while I was pregnant. The whirlwind surrounding Claire's birth was a bit surprising for him, but it didn't take long before he became another of Claire's biggest fans. After he figured out that she was going to be sticking around he quickly started wanting to hold her and is constantly giving her kisses. It really is sweet to see his love for her.

Other than the Pebbles papers, this layout also has lots of Queen and Companies Washi Tape and some title work done with my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot. I wrote the "baby" part of my title in Inkscape and then cut it out from red paper. The rest of the title was done with the font typewriter.

The journaling reads: "Spencer you didn’t really understand much of what went on when Claire was born. You were patient during all the changes and seemed to be trying hard to understand what this new little baby meant. I found you one day sitting on the arm of the couch staring down at Claire in her swing. You sat there for quite awhile and watched her. It was just as if you were taking a moment to study her and figure out what she was. You must have figured it out because not long afterwards you started giving her kisses all the time and including her when you said your prayers. You now seem genuinely happy to have her as part of our family. Fall 2012"

Thanks for stopping by today!
