Momtrocity #1 (of millions)

So, I thought I was being a sentimental parent and all that crap by succumbing to my desire to get a framed birth announcement print with Henry's stats for his room.  Yay me!  I ventured onto trusty Etsy to see what was out there and found an adorable template that was affordable.  Yay me again!  So, I placed my order, convo'd the artist and anxiously awaited the arrival of the announcement - I even got a frame!  It arrived and it was perfect.  Or so I thought.  I showed it to L and she mentioned right off the bat that Henry was actually 20 inches when born, not 21 as was printed.  Well, I thought, there must be a mistake (that I didn't make), but after checking the email I'd sent, I had in fact written that H was 21 inches instead of 20.  In my defense, he'd gone to his two week check up the day I ordered it and measured 21 inches that day...  Also, I'm not getting it reprinted.  Henceforth, Henry was 21 inches at birth.  Truth.

It looks like this.  Adorable, no?  If you know someone who needs a birth announcement, this is a winner.  Just make sure you know the kid's real stats...

Surely you can stretch or compress an infant a single inch to fit? They're very flexible.
