My Latest Project

My latest project is to take my son's favorite bear and take pictures of him throughout the day involved in different activities or situations. I plan on making it into a book for him. I will do the same with my dd's favorite animal/cuddle toy once I finish my son's. So far, I have taken pictures of the bear "combing" his hair, brushing his teeth, watching out the window, playing on the computer, sitting in the time out chair, riding the rocking horse and will add to it later. It is a surprise for my son. I think I will do a shot of cuddles taking a "treatment" as well. I have all kinds of ideas. There are several places online I can upload pictures and pay for a book to be sent to me with those pitcures. I think I will entitle it either A Teddy Bear Day or The Life of Cuddles (which is the bear's name). This bear has been with Christopher since he was born.

I think for Hannah it will either be her doll she got for Christmas or her Mermaid doll. For Jennifer her "puppy". Each will be doing activities each child does. Like for Jennifer I can have it sit on the potty. For Hannah, the doll can "color". I hope it turns out as cute as I think it will. Regardless, I know one day, my kids will treasure it. I also plan to sneak in at night and take a picture of them asleep with their lovey as THE END shot.

I think this will be a great way to preserve part of their childhood for all of time. I am also thinking of doing books for Christmas for the grandparents "A day in the life of your grandchildren". Let's hope I can make these books happen. Life passes by far to fast and one day my children will outgrow their loveys and I want to preserve the beauty of childhood innocene for them.

What a cute idea! I may need to try that as a gift for my daughters. They have some beloved stuffed "bed buddies" and I'm sure they would love a book of photos.

Very clever. :-)

fantastic idea! Especially the book for grandparents. We recently moved hours away from our families and this sounds like a great gift idea for grandparents day.
