Is anyone combining the two? Or are you planning to do birth announcements at all, or will you include the baby's info on your Christmas cards? Or are you doing both separately?
(I know some of us will still be pregnant at Christmas)
ETA: And I realize now this sounds so Christmas-centric. I definitely realize that not everyone celebrates Christmas. I genuinely do mean to include anyone who sends out any sort of holiday card at this time of year.
I *think* this baby will be here early enough that we will be able to get a Christmas card out which will double as a birth announcement for us.
I am going to keep it super simple. I picked out a couple of photo Christmas cards on the Costco website today. Entered my customized wording with just "Baby" and a fake birthdate and saved it. Then when baby is born, I will stick the proper name, date and weight in there, get a photo uploaded and order them. Costco is 5 minutes from our house and I know they have them printed in less than 24 hours, so I think that is the route we are going to go!
My wording is basically:
Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2012
Baby Name Here
With Love from the G Family
