Thanks so much for all the input on birth announcement survey. Looks to me like we are agreed. The green shot won out in the end, which is just the one I was leaning towards.
Because I stumbled across this four year old photo of Judah's lookalike, back when Andrew was my little Panda. awwww....memories. The likeness just tickled my fancy, even down to them holding their hands similarly. Sweet babies.
Andrew's birth announcement photo:
I was surprised by all the anti-cord feedback I got. Never in a million years would I have thought a cord would gross people out. Even my mother called to say YUCK. She even suggested I put a silver dollar or something over it---ha!
Honestly, since that little black plug is the only thing proving that my 3-month old sized child is indeed a newborn, I wanted it in the photo. It stays on for such a short time, I wanted to capture it while I could. The newborn essence.
But, on the other hand, it is good to know that it grosses some people out. Wouldn't want my birth announcement to illicit vomiting around the globe. :-)
Lots of things to share, but alas, school must be done. Egg dishes to wash. A fireman to oversee (the four year old kind). A baby to nurse. You know, things like that. If I get all my ducks in a row---you might see me twice today.
