Over the Moon | Birth Announcements

2.17.2014
Today our baby boy Theo is a month and a half old. The part of me that's sleep deprived can't wait for the next few months to fly by so we can get back on more of a schedule, but as a mommy I'm in awe of how quickly time is passing and how big he is already.  As in like 12+lbs big...eek.  I'm so glad I have my phone nearby to snap quick pictures because it's pretty crazy to watch the changes happening overnight.

I finally understand how second babies tend to get neglected in the memories department- my hands are so full between him and my daughter that stopping to record the milestones can be such a challenge.  Honestly I haven't been quick to accomplish much since he was born, but I have to give myself credit for remembering order his baby announcements.  


I had such a positive response over the Minted cards we sent out at the holidays that I already knew I would be ordering from them again. I instantly fell for this design... it's such a sweet, simple style and I keep telling people that we're 'over the moon' about Theo's arrival.

I've said it before, but one of my very favorite things about Minted is all the options they offer for customization.  I ordered rounded corners on the cards, kraft paper envelopes and best of all... coordinating return address stickers with a personal message.
So cute right?  I'm just so glad to have something with his stats and a good photo to hang onto, even if I never do get around to making a baby book. Here's the original picture I used for the card... boy oh boy do I love this little bundle.

  1. A greeting card is perfect if the material used came from recyclable papers?

  2. When I had my second son, I felt the same way, easy way to record milestones, is take a coffee can, & slit the top, decorate it all cutesy, and just write on pieces of little paper, or post-its, napkins, whatever you have handy, and jot down the milestone & the date, when you have a free moment, open it up, and transfer & record in his baby book. :-) Hope it helps!!

  3. Those announcements are so pretty!! I love those eyes on your little boy. (I also love the name Theodore. That's my son's middle name.)
