Baby Gray's Birth Announcement

• 02 March 2011

























Don't judge me...I am mailing out a petite stack of birth announcements today. Yup...it took me a good six months to finally pull this project off, but I'm going for the "better late than never" attitude on this one. Plus, did you know that according to the rules of etiquette, that it's appropriate to send out announcements up until 6 months after baby is born? Talk about cutting it close...

Poor fourth child :) All the other kiddos have handmade announcements that were mostly done prior to birth. I'll admit, I'm a little bummed I wasn't able to pull that off this time, but I also realize that it wasn't realistic to take on such a project in the midst of a major move and pregnancy drama. I'm sure Baby Gray will understand; but, in the meantime, I'm enjoying these sweet announcements from Minted. I love the way they turned out and would definitely order from them again. Although, my baby-making days are done so Christmas cards next year perhaps? :)

You're absolutely right... 6 months is the etiquette, but even if you sent them a little while after, everyone is going to love it no matter what. Let's be honest, we all love receiving mail, but mostly we love seeing creative announcements from our friends and family. It makes us feel connected. I'm in love with your announcement and love your handwriting.

Stephanie, these announcements are so cute! You did a great job -- I love them, even if they're not handmade. And thanks for the etiquette tip; I didn't send Jack's announcements out until he was 5 months old, so glad to know I'm in good company :)

Cute announcements! We ordered our New Years cards from Minted, and I loved them. Everything about ordering from them was such a pleasure. And, by the way, we still have quite a stack of those cards left to send, and it is March. I hope the 6 month rule applies here as well!

Cute! But how am I just now noticing that we're both half of a Stephanie and Ben duo? Funny.

Ooh...that is random Stephanie! I wonder what else we have in common...

I love these announcements. We almost used the same one for our little Oliver Gray. (I hope you're enjoying Seattle--I'm a native!)

These are precious! Don't be hard on yourself about taking a little longer. You have 4 kids, I can't imagine how time consuming that must be!! :)
