Notes:
The little Elflings in this story are eight year old, roughly comparable to human children aged 4 to 4.5 years. Given the safety of the surroundings and the lack of threats imposed by wars (especially long wars), the Elves in the Lonely Isle would be more willing to reproduce, unlike their counterparts in Middle-earth. Also, they might not have the inhibition of showing off their offspring to strangers given the aforesaid reasons. (That would also explain why there were no Elfling mentioned in The Lord of the Rings save the small reference to Merry and Pippin in Fangorn Forest, which indirectly lamented the absence of Elf-children in the Third Age.)
This piece is intended to be the first part of a small collection featuring the same event, told in different point of views. If chance allows, the author might use prompts of the next days in B2MeM month to fill in the next parts; or, barring that, she will try to finish it when the month is over. And seeing that this particular piece is told from the point of view of small sheltered children, the prompts used to build it are not clearly visible especially regarding foreign items/people such as curly-haired/bearded persons and pipeweed.
