Will you do a FB announcement?: Just did the other day. I'm not a huge fan of waiting to tell people, if you couldn't tell. :P For Facebook, I got my daughter a shirt that says "Awesome Big Sister" and took a couple pictures of her wearing it. I posted that with the caption, "Why yes, I am trying to say something here." It was cute.
Anything else you want to share?: I'm trying to figure out what kind of newborn cloth diapers to buy. We cloth diapered our daughter, but we didn't start till she was about 5-6 months old, so I don't have any of the little-little ones yet.
