Follow The Prophet Quiet Book

Is it me, or is it getting itchy in here? I'm getting the itch to make another Quiet book. It's probably a combo of Levi needing something to keep him entertained on Sundays and wanting to make something for the new baby. I made this quiet book a while ago for a friend, and I always really liked it! It's a take on the LDS Primary song Follow the Prophet (one of my faves.). I think I'll make one for Levi. If you have any ideas on improvements of fun additions I'd love to know, just take a look below..

Left Page: Flowers button on and you can match the colors
Right Page: The cloud swivels so you can see the city before and after it is taken to heaven

Left Page: Beads move up and down like rain
Right Page: 12 hearts for the 12 sons of Abraham to practice counting

Left Page: A tent that opens and closes with a bow
Right Page: A mirror so the child can say "here I am" just like Samuel

Left Page: A whale with a zipper mouth that can open and close
Right Page: A Lion puzzle with velcro

Beginning to get a little pudgy

Whew, I've finally got a few more weeks done and ready to post. You know, this was a whole lot easier last time I was pregnant... I blame Levi. But, honestly, I don't love the work, but I love having these to go back and look at later on. So, it's totally worth the effort. I kind of have to question my sanity a little, though. For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to take the pictures for this pregnancy outside this time, and it has been COLD and FREEZING and MISERABLE and WINDY most of the times I've done it. In my next post I'l let you see a few of my Ultrasound pictures, so look forward to that. I just need to take my weekly photos for it :)
