I know, I know… he’s 10 weeks.
With William I had birth announcements out in 2 weeks. With Alexander and Benjamin, about 3 weeks.
I cannot believe Henry’s have taken this long to put together.
I DO have a good excuse. I had the “perfect” birth announcement in my head. And well, it sort of didn’t go as well as I had planned.
I went out and had 4 shirts embroidered –
My vision? OH… my oh-so creative vision! Have William on the couch by himself with the caption, “There was 1.” Then William and Alexander on the couch with the caption, “Then there were 2.” Then William, Alexander and Benjamin all on the couch with the caption, “Then there were 3.” And then all of the boys on the couch with the caption, “Oh yes, and now there’s 4.”
I had a vision that they would all sit perfectly still and smile exactly when I told them to smile.
And then? Well… I realized I was dealing with 4 boys 4 and under. Here are some of my photos on trying to capture the “perfect” birth announcement:
Truth be told, these photos reflect perfectly this-is-our-life-right-now-with-our-4-boys and welcome-to-the-world-Henry for our birth announcement!
On to PLAN B.
What’s that? I have NO clue. Just hoping to get a good photo where you can actually see Henry among the boys! Or… maybe just one of him. After all, it is HIS birth announcement.
