Big Girl began asking about the ABCs before she was two. I had seen an album that someone had done that used a photo of the child relating to each letter, and I thought this would be the perfect thing to make for her. So I ordered an album on Ebay, started taking photos, and collecting stickers and paper. And then I sat down to "scrapbook" and this Type A became totally stressed out! I don't know how you people do it beacuse I had a theme and only had to put one picture on a page and it STILL stressed me out! Here are some of the pages from her book. The words I chose for each page are words she knew and used as I was making the book, so it's a neat record of her early language, too.
It was a hit, and Mr. YH said I really needed to do one for each child. And seeing as one of my love languages is words of affirmation, I readily agreed. I had no idea what I was getting myself into! But I had ordered another album and already had a bunch of stickers, so I started planning out the photos. I meant to have this done for The Boy for his 3rd birthday which, come this November 19, would be a year ago. Sigh. I have a few more stickers to locate, and the final photographs (minus 1- we need M and dog-gone-it! Mama is going to have her picture in this book!!!) are on their way. So, per Brandi's request toget a peek, here are some of my favorite pages out of his book:
And now, the planning begins for Baby Girl's book. I have to take some photos before we move because I don't know when we'll be able to see Baba, Didyc, Gigi and Gramps again! Have I mentioned we are SO done with having babies inside the Yellow Hat?!
