A to Z...

I made a book for Colin!  It came today in the mail (from Shutterfly).  I am sooo excited about it!  It was fun to make, and when I showed Colin he LOVED it!  He sat and I read it to him like 5 times =)

Here are some of the pages.... 

This is the one that I started with!

And this one was Garet's idea (we don't own a xylophone)

I love the way it turned out!  I got the soft cover book so that Colin would have an easier time turning the pages.  And I edited all my pictures in photoshop.  I gave them all the white border so that the whole book would kinda flow better.  Colin thought it was so neat to see himself in a book - he told me so =)

What a sweet idea, we love Shutterfly books and make a book for each of the kids at the end of each year highlighting our favorite moments from each month, but never thought if doing something like this. Pretty neat I can imagine he will live this book for quite some time! Way to go Mama, you get the 'thinking on your toes' award!!!!
