Photo book...

I have been working on a project for a little while now and I finally finished it! I want to leave a small photo book with pictures of us for our daughter between our trips. This way, hopefully, we are a little more familiar to her when we come to pick her up and bring her home forever. First, I had to find the perfect book for a 1-2 year old. Kiara has one from when she was a baby that I like made by Sassy. But, on the front of it says 'Who Loves Baby?'. Our new daughter won't exactly be a baby, so I was looking for something different. Finally, I found one made by Baby Einstein. It was perfect, it didn't say baby anywhere on it and on the outside it says 'Photos' in several different languages. I don't think Russian is on there, but I still thought it was pretty cool. I put the Russian word for each picture in with the photo, so her caretakers will know who each person is. You know I couldn't have thought of this project on my own, thanks Tamara for the great idea! So, feel free to steal the idea from me if you feel so inclined.

Sister, Your home

I just realized that I should probably put Kiara's name on her page. So, maybe I'm not done! :)

Love the photo album! I just did mine. It's a Gund one that will hopefully hold up. I need to make labels for the photos---guess I will use Google translate for that? Target has very cute Seasame Street Color, Numbers, etc. books in their dollar bin up front right now! Our son demolished his books, so I HAD to get some for the baby! :)

We used that same photo album for our little girl. My favorite pictures are of her chewing on her brothers! She also really liked pointing to the cute animals printed on the pages. I didn't think to put the labels in it, but that is such a great idea! I made an extra one for home in case the one we left with her doesn't make it back.
