Baby Book -- Not Abandoned

I know I haven't posted baby book pages in a while and there's a reason for that: I don't know what page I'm on anymore. See, I got stuck on blessing pictures because the page number that I was at, the blessing would have been on the right hand side (in the printed book), which made me want to do only one page for it, since the pages wouldn't be printed side by side. But there's just too many pictures for one page. No matter what I do with them, I just don't like it. So I've skipped it completely and have been creating random pages totally out of order. Which is probably bad considering, now they don't have a side by side cohesiveness to them. (In fact, I finished a page tonight than when I went to put it in the folder, I realized I had a page from that same date --different pictures-- and the two layouts totally don't match. Hmmmm....not sure what I'm going to do about that one yet.)

Anyway, here's a look at the pages from about 7 weeks through 3 months, or at least, the ones I have done (minus the one that I finished tonight, which you'll get to see on Monday...assuming I don't change it.)

I do have an idea on how to fix the baby book problem. I'm thinking if I condense my Easter pages from four pages to just three, then I the blessing pictures won't be a problem anymore. And the fourth Easter page isn't really that Eastery, so it will look fine opposite something else if it's moved to the third page instead. But that means rescrapping the first three pages to condense them...

I think you have a good idea about condensing the Easter pages.
Also, you said apartment on the page where Caleb is standing in Brandon's hand, but it should say house.
Everything else is awesome. And I don't know how to comment when you put up pages on that link you gave me, but I've seen someone else comment, so is it an exclusive club to be able to leave comments over there?
I haven't done any work on my blog book since the first day I started it. Terrible.

p.s. The picture of Caleb pouting when being held over the fence at the temple always tugs at my heartstrings!
