Custom made printed announcements are a nice way to let everyone know you baby has arrived, but they may also be costly.

For a second or third baby try this idea…take the big brother or sister’s hand a use paint or an ink pad to make a print of their hand on the front of the birth announcement. Write in nice hand writing around the hand print, “He is Here! Or She is Here!” On the inside of the birth announcement write as if the announcement was from the older sibling. Saying something to the effect that I am so glad my new baby is here, include a photo and you have made a fabulous keepsake for friends and family. Also, you have now giving the older sibling “ownership” of his or her baby.
Whichever avenue you choose the main objective is to declare to the world the joy that has now entered your life. So, whether you use poetry and rhyme, or just a sentence or two about this joyous time pick what fits your budget best. And don’t forget to save one for the baby book.
