Who all is doing announcements?

Have you selected them yet? If so, where are you getting them from?

I thought about it but with fb everyone that matters already knows and has seen her so I decided not to. I knew we were doing family pictures when Avery turned 1 month so I just rather send those pictures anyway.

I will order some after we do our newborn photo shoot this weekend. My cousin is a photographer and she did a shoot for DD and made her announcements. They were amazing.

We are planning to do them as well. Our photo shoot was this morning and we got some good shots. We will design our own using a software that DH got for work and then order through White House Custom Color.

We did them for the boys and now I feel like we need to with her too. I am prolly going to do it as the boys introducing their new sister.

That sounds just precious, what a cute idea.

We will. My boyfriend has a ton of family overseas, so I think it is only fair to send out announcements.

Haha. The first time they were. But now we have everything streamlined...place in envelope, stick on return address, stick on stamp, stick on printed address label, throw in mailbox. I highly recommend a "master" address list in Excel that you can pull from and print stuff. It's amazing how many things you have to send out with kids...announcements, baptism invites, thank you notes, birthday invites, etc. I would have long since gone nuts if I had to dig up addresses and write them individually on envelopes. Lol.

We will. We send out about 40 to all our extended family. Only the people our age have fb so the aunts and uncles and great g. parents won't see pics unless we do announcements. I'll probably try to design my own, if not I'll use shutterfly or mpix.

I just ordered Lexi's birth announcements last week from tinyprints.com! They came yesterday, but the photo looked completely washed out. I called customer service and they are reprinting all of them for me at no cost! Plus I'm getting expedited shipping, so they will be here on July 2. Here's the style I chose:
