DIY Photo Album for Babies

With Christmas coming up, I have been trying to figure out what all to get our little munchkin.  Since she is only 6 months old, it is easy to not go crazy since she doesn’t know any better, but nonetheless, I still want her to have a fun first Christmas.  Alex and I had decided it would be fun to start the four gift tradition with her.  You know…something you want, something you need, something to wear, and something to read.  Then we will do one Santa gift and a stocking.  Her something to read will be this book!

Since we live so far away from everyone, I still want Avery to know everyones names and faces,  Luckily with FaceTime, we do get to see our grandparents a lot.  I found this little photo album on Amazon.  I liked it because you can put 15 pictures in it, which was much more than other ones  I looked at and we have a big family!  I also liked that it is soft a flexible so she can slobber and chew on it!  I just printed out girls on purple and boys on blue and used washi tape that I had left over from a previous project.  It is zebra, so I figured it went with the animals on the front cover!

Though she knows us, mommy and daddy made the cut!

I love that the last page is a mirror for her!  This will be a great way to help her learn everyone’s names and titles!  What are some things you have done for your baby’s first Christmas?  I would love to hear other ideas!
