7 Adorable Easter Themed Birth Announcements

While never frequent enough, birth announcements are by far my most favorite piece of mail to receive. Like clockwork, I open the envelope and the photo announcement goes straight to the refrigerator, where it will stay for weeks on end. Every time I pass by the announcement, I just can’t help but smile! New babies being born, it doesn’t get much better than that.

Easter Sunday is March 31st, and if you’re a new parent and had a baby in the last couple months, you have a great opportunity to send out an Easter themed birth announcement. Little chickens, bunnies, and babies…oh my!

And the best part about these super cute announcements? You can print almost all of them yourself, at home or at your local printing place!

Best Gift Ever: 10 Holiday Birth Announcements for the New Year

So you didn’t have time to send out a family holiday card this year. Girl, I don’t blame you. Last year on Christmas Day I was enormously pregnant waddling around the house barefoot, 38 weeks expecting with my 4th child. Holiday cards were at the very bottom of my to-do list, even at the very height of my nesting.

Instead, I sent out a holiday/birth announcement towards the end of January, after baby Paul made his arrival. I little belated note to wish all my friends and family a happy new year, while also announcing we received the BEST! GIFT! EVER!, a new little brother.

So if you’re in the same boat I was last year, don’t freak out about being the only one not sending out a holiday card mid-December. Do as I did, and save some cash by bundling the birth announcement and season’s greeting all in one lovely mailing.

And Then There Were Four

I remember the moment I told my husband I was pregnant for the fourth time. It was unlike any other time I told him I was expecting. I was in shock, I was scared, and I felt very overwhelmed.

We always knew we wanted four children, but this wasn’t our timing at all. The spacing was going to be a bit snug for my comfort zone.

But here I was, nervously telling him we were expecting, again. Over the course of a few weeks, the shock and awe subsided and my feelings changed from scared to elated. Sure, my kids were going to be really close in age, it was going to be a lot of work on my part, but it was undoubtedly going to be awesome!

Since we already had two girls and a boy, we decided to find out the gender, something we’ve never done before. We already had all the girls stuff we could ever need, and our baby boy gear hadn’t even been put away yet.

We decided if we were going to find out before the birth, that we better make a bit deal out of it. So with the help of my amazing and talented friend Casey, we made the reveal into a photo shoot.

The surprise was better than I could have ever imagined:
