A Birth Announcement That Is Both Practical And Sentimental
The best birth announcement is both practical and sentimental. Welcome your new baby into the world in a very special way. Tell everybody your good news with a photo or a more traditional announcement. Sending out baby announcements has become a common tradition in our culture today.
You can choose any wording you like and may include any information that you want to share with family and friends. Some people choose to include the height and weight of the baby, or have a photo of the baby for a photo announcement, but you certainly do not have to do this. Some people also include the time of the birth, but this is optional as well. It is enough simply to list the baby's name, birth date and any sentimental saying you feel is appropriate and the birth parents' names in the birth announcement.
The Internet is full of great ideas for wording a boy announcement as well as a girl announcement. Also, there are lots of tips for how to handle the wording for different family situations, such as twins, triplets, adoption, divorce and single mothers.
