This is something I made years ago but we still enjoy! It is an ABC book using pictures of LM (when he was a baby) with different objects or concepts for each letter of the alphabet.
First, I went through our picture folders on our computer and copied and pasted any with cute ones of LM into a separate folder. Then I went through and figured out which pictures could represent which letter of the alphabet.
I have a digital scrap-booking program which I LOVE to use for fun little projects like this. So, I used that to make each page with a background, the picture, and the letter and words above the picture. And since it was all made digitally, I just printed out each page in a 4x6 format and put them in a little photo-album.
I made this when LM was about 1 year old. And since LM is our firstborn, we took pictures of him a-plenty, so it wasn't too hard to find pictures of him representing all the ABC's.
You could make one of these for your child no matter what age they are! And you could also use different concepts: colors, numbers, shapes, anything!
(Since the time I first posted this, I have made one of these for LB also and plan to make one for sweet baby LL! It's kind of become a fun tradition for our family!)
