Homemade Alphabet & Number Book

As Trouble and I were cleaning out his closet I came across his ABC Book. We made this when he was just a little guy. It was a fun project that we were able to work on together. Trouble still enjoys looking through the photographs.
Trouble and I spent hours playing I Spy with the letters on the front cover. Ahhhh.... the good old days!
I went through my picture drawer and found appropriate pictures for the letters.
I printed out the letter and word for each page, then I had Trouble put the stickers on the top.
Kids love putting stickers anywhere.
I found stickers under Trouble's toilet lid.
Don't wonder why I call him Trouble. Yes... he is indeed feeding the dog ice cream.
 I tried to put people he knew in the book too.

 After we were done we decided to add numbers to the book.
 Trouble was obsessed with Thomas the train at the time. 
I had him pose with trains.

  1. This makes me want to be a mommy all over again. So, so sweet!!!!!

  2. What a great idea! This book is educational, but also can be kept forever as a keepsake / photo album. Very clever.
