Mommy Hearts Nate

For Valentine's Day, I made Nate a book using photos of familiar people, things, etc.  to help him learn words and identify things.  The photos came from Costco and the book & stickers came from BigLots so clearly this wasn't a craft that broke the bank ($5??)  It was fun to work on...especially since we didn't have a t.v. for 4 days (the roofers bumped our DirectTV dish -- oh yeah, we have a new roof.  Forgot to mention that.)  Anyway, here's the finished product.  Nate seems to like it a lot.  I imagine it'll have a lifespan of 6 months before he's torn it to shreds.

That is so cool!!! Great job, and it looks way more $$$ than $5 :)
