Quiet Book for Baby

Well baby cousin turned is turning one! I can't even believe how fast time goes. She had her party last Saturday as you can tell by these cute party hats that my sisters and I are wearing! :)

For her birthday, I decided to make her a quiet book. She's starting to get to that stage where she likes to look at books, so I thought this would be perfect. Every time I finish a quiet book I forget how long it takes! So f.y.i. if you ever want to do one of these make sure you either have tons of time on your hand or you start ahead of time!

One of my favorite parts of the book is the pictures of mom and dad. What I did was take a sheet protector and cut it up then sew the edges to hold the picture in place. And that way, if anything gets spilled on the picture it can just be wiped up.

I used thin jewelry wire for the guitar strings and the little door opens on the home.

The jackolantern pieces can come off the pumpkin and be rearranged.

I think the pig is my favorite one!

The seeds on the watermelon come off so that she can practice her buttons.

I loved the You on this page. Isn't she adorable? I did the same sheet protector idea with this one, but I put a velcro on the top part. That way for future babies she can switch the picture out.

And how cute is this picture! She was so good through the whole party but the poor little thing got tired by the end! :) This by far was one of my favorite pictures of the night!
