I am so excited with the results of this project, I just had to share.
I had seen the idea for alphabet books on pinterest, specifically here, at Modern Parents Messy Kids.
Basically, the idea is to use photos of items from around your house to make a personalised photo book for your child.
It sounded like a wonderful idea and I thought with the amount of photos I take of Josh, it would be a breeze.
I was wrong.
It took several days to go through all my photos, desperately searching for any photo which might have some tenuous link to a letter of the alphabet.
On several occasions, I gave up and just took new photos. I remember walking around the house on one occasion mumbling “Q? What the heck starts with Q?!”
I eventually found something.
Josh adores the book though, which makes it all so worth while! When we read it out, I will say “A is for…” to which he shouts out “animals!” with a big grin on his face.
Here are a few of my favourite pages.
Last night, we never got any further than this page, as Josh went into immense detail about what colour jelly beans he wanted to eat and refused to let me turn the page, content to just stare and talk about jelly beans all night.
