father's day gift

Jimmy did a great job with Mother’s Day, so now it’s my turn. I thought about buying a bunch of useless crap interesting stuff he likes from, but I wanted to make it a little more personal. I poured through blogs and pinterest for ideas, but in the end, I’m going to go with what I know best : Photoshop and templates.

My first attempt was to make a comic book with images of Jimmy and my son. Something like this:

But then, I realized that I’m not very good with words. I also didn’t want to put words into my son’s mouth. I like the idea of making a comic book, but I’m going to put it off until Blee’s a little older. Then, he can tell me exactly what he wants for the speech bubbles.

So then, I was back to square one. I searched through my laptop for Photoshop templates and decided to make an ABC book using pictures of Blee and Jimmy. This way, Blee can have fun learning (hopefully) the alphabet and Jimmy can help him out! It’s a win-win situation!

Here are some of the pages…

What do you think? I’m a little jealous that Jimmy has so many fun photos with Blee. I know it’s partly my fault, since I literally RUN from the camera, but now I wish I took more with him…especially when he was little. It’s crazy how fast he’s growing up, and I want Blee to be able to look back and see photos of us together.

Oh, and don’t worry, I told Jimmy he can’t look at this blog post.

Hope you have a nice weekend!
