My friend’s daughter had “preemie twins” this past weekend – two beautiful, healthy baby girls, born at 33 weeks gestational age weighing a good 4 lbs 8 oz and 5 lbs 1 oz respectively. I will be anxious to see the birth announcement that she sends out!
When my twins were born almost seventeen years ago (gasp! I’m getting old), the birth announcements that we sent out were from a Hallmark store (it was hard to find ones especially made for twins) where we hand-wrote the baby’s information such as birth date, name/s, weight/s and parent’s names.
Nowadays, parents are lucky to be able to create their own announcements digitally with pictures and graphics with websites such as Naptime Productions that bring you unique cards for every occasion, from births to baptisms, baby showers to birthdays, even graduations to weddings.
One thing I wish I would have done that I would now recommend is framing one of your child’s/children’s birth announcements to hang up on the wall in the baby’s room. The card can become a keepsake to treasure as he or she gets older. I do have the cross-stitch samplers I made for my twins still hanging up in the girls’ room and think of them as itty bitty tiny babies often every time I look at it!
