James, Age 2 (A Photo Word Collage)



I used Picasa to edit this photo.  Picasa is a free photo editing software that is very user-friendly.  

After uploading the photo, you click on "Text" 


Then you can chose your font (whatever fonts you have on your computer), move them around, make them bigger or smaller, and choose what color you want to use.  Then just hit "Apply" and save the picture.

  2. What a fun way to remember this age. I want to start doing stuff like this more - it's easy to forget all the little things they like and say at each age.

  6. Genious idea!! I don't have kids yet, but when I do, I'm keeping this in mind. It will be a great reminder of the things they do, say or are into at different ages. Love it!

  9. How fun! If he loves Dora and Yo Gabba Gabba, he will probably love the Polkadots (they are from New Zealand) and have a really fun Youtube Channel!
