I need your help!

I'm making Lizzy her own ABC book. The goal is to have simple words, and everyday items--preferably things she'll see around the house. Also, that I'm able to take pictures of. The last one is key, so things like "A is for Aardvark" are out. But here's the problem--I'm stuck with a few of the letters. And I'd love suggestions!

Here's what I have so far:

A- Maybe Ark, NOT Apple
B- Bear
C- Cat
D- Dad
E- Elizabeth
F- Feet
G- Giraffe
H- House
I-
J- Jacket
K- Kiwi
L- Lizard
M- Mom
N- Nose
O- NOT Orange
P- Pants or Popcorn
Q- Maybe Quilt
R-
S- Socks and Shoes
T- Tree
U-
V-
W- Whale
X-
Y- Yawn
Z- Zebra

Any suggestions for the ones were missing? Any better ideas for a letter we already have?

    O-Oak Tree (if your husband is a landscaper like mine!)

    U-Umbrella
    V-vest or visit (like Grandma's Visit)
    X-xylophone (I'm sure you could get a toy one for her...)

  5. First of all--ridiculously awesome idea!! :D

    Ice cream for I was definitely the first thing that came to my mind...but maybe you can come up with something better.

    Words that start with x are seriously just not kid friendly. You could do some kind of play of of x marks the spot or something?

    What about zipper for z instead of zebra? That's a bit more practical, maybe.

    R for ring?

    Oatmeal for O? No, scratch that--OCEAN! A must have. ;)

    Airplane for a? Or Africa?

    R is for rock! Or Ryan?

    What do you have against apples? I like the umbrella suggestion for U.

    V for vacuum.

    Lars thinks you should change L to, well, Lars. I think Lisa is better than Lars but that Lizard is definitely best.

  12. First off, I totally used a 12 weeks trick last night & held my finger in front of the flash to dim it so that our candelight dinner pictures wouldn't be ridiculously bright.

    Second:
    A - alligator
    I - igloo, ice
    O - oyster, ocean
    Q - i like quilt
    R - rain, red
    U - umbrella, ukelele
    V - vest, vase
    X - this is hard one.

    I'm pretty sure someone has already said all of those. :-)
