Quiet Book

I've been trying to come up with ways to keep Ezra entertained and preferably quiet during certain tense situations... like waiting at the doctor's office, or waiting to get our food at a restaurant, or on an airplane.  And since he and I are going to visit our California family in about a month, I thought I'd better get on it.

I saw a pin on Pinterest of a quiet book, and I was inspired.  However, all the blogs I've read talk about all the work and time involved, so this task is a bit daunting.  So in the past 3 days I've been working on compiling a list of all the ideas I have for pages and then starting to draw them out and possibly eliminate some that I could always add later (since I'm going the 3 ring, add pages as your child grows to route vs. the completely sewn together way) or eliminate ones that are duplicates.

Here are a few pictures of some of the WONDERFUL pages I've found that I'm going to base my pages from.




These pages are so fantastic.  I seriously can't wait to get started!  Joann's is having a 50% off sale on all their notions starting Friday so I'm going to work on deciding on which pages I'm going to make and then make a list of all the supplies I need so I can go on Saturday and get stocked up.  Hopefully if I have a plan for each page and have the template drawn out it won't take as long.

Wish me luck!
