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...

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.
