I’ve had such a fun time creating these birth announcements for our sweet Lillya. Could hardly wait for them to be printed and arrive at our door! I’ve once again used minted to print these beauties! (You might remember me talking about minted, since I’ve printed our Christmas cards with them for the past three year… see our last year’s card here.)
I used one of my favourite photos of Lillya from our new born photos for the front of the card and a selection of shots of the four of us for a collage on the back. It’s so hard to choose just one photo, so having a handful more on the back was the best idea.
I was busy writing little thank-you’s on each card and now they’re all ready to be sent out! It’s such a sweet little keepsake and a wonderful way to share the birth of your baby with your friends and family! Incase you’re wonderful what design I used you can find it here, however there are hundreds more to choose from too!
Happy New Year everyone! The last 6 weeks have been the most exciting and fastest weeks of our lives! If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve already met our sweet baby girl Lillya Grace Hibbs, who arrived on December 9th at 8:21 am, weighing 7lbs 2oz, of pure sweetness and love. She’s been an incredible baby and the first 6 weeks of her life have been polar opposite then her big brother (who had reflux… those 6 weeks were the hardest weeks I’ve ever experienced). We’ve been enjoying her calm spirit and falling in love with all the new smiles she’s been giving up these past few days. Thank you for all your well wishes, e-mails and comments. We are over the moon in love and could not be more thankful for the blessing she is to our family.
That all being said- I can’t believe it’s taken me six weeks to finally post a bird announcement on the blog! I think it’s so important to just put everything aside and simply focus on our new family of four and be present. Having a big during Christmas holidays and then leading up the the new year had me living in a cloud of constant excitement and I’m not even sure how that all went down. I laugh, because it all seems like a blur now. And how the heck are we already at the end of January? Time sure does fly when you are in love with the sweetest baby girl and learning how to juggle having two darlings during the busiest time of year!
To say the least we’ve had the best December and January! I can’t wait to share more of our baby girl with you! Today I’m sharing a peek at our new born photos, which is a marathon in its self with a one week old! Stressful, but so worth it! I’m in love with every single photo that my best friend Mary Konkin captured for us!
In the next couple weeks I’ll be sharing the rest of our new born photos, my favourite moments to date and some of my favourite baby girl items!
