Personal Picture Book

When my daughter was a about a year old I made her a little photo album. She has lots of pictures of herself in there along with pictures of Grandmas and Grandpas and every aunt, uncle, and cousin. My daughter is very good with names and she knows the name of everyone in her book (and let me tell you there are plenty). It's a great little book to bring a long to church and quietly look at.

I recently decided that it was time my son got his own picture book. I included in it pictures of him doing his favorite things (eating, swinging, reading books) along with pictures of mom, dad, and sister. And then because I had to order 50 pictures from Snapfish to get them for one cent each I decided to throw in a few pictures of his favorite things.

Here are a few of them:

Here's my handsome boy.

He loves his book.

It's so fun to see his face light up when he sees his favorite things.


  1. Love this idea! I don't know a kid in the world that doesn't delight in looking at pictures of themselves.

  2. I have awarded you a 'Sunshine Award' to accept the award for display on your blog check
