Birth un-announcements

Before Harrison was born, I made this cute Lumberjack beanie for him. I was running out of yarn and didn't have enough of one solid color to make the entire beanie so I decided to put three (or was it four?) colors together for this beanie. It was pretty simple. I just started with a regular beanie and then added the sides, ties and top little fuzzie.
So, when he was only a few weeks old I did my own little photoshoot with it and used the pictures from it to create a birth announcement...

that I never sent out...


I loveeee this picture and I'm really bummed that I never actually ordered all of the announcements and sent them out. It's been a little crazy, what with the:

-Umbilical Hernia (no big deal)
-Overactive let down (that's my deal but it makes him cry and not eat unless I lay down)
-Lactose intolerance (kind-of a big deal. I miss my cheese!)
-Eczema (sad deal- poor baby!)
-Reflux (scary deal because sometimes he sounds like he's choking a little on it)

Kind of a lot to handle on top of everything else that comes with being a mom. So here is the picture that never got sent out. Maybe I'll order it on a canvas?

I'm linking!

That's a BEAUTIFUL picture!! What a little cutie pie! The hate is adorable :) Sorry to hear he (you!) are going through some pretty rough stuff!! Hopefully it will work out, or at least calm down, soon. Those newborn days can be trying.

And thanks for your sweet comments on my rosette bracelet post :)

OMG what an adorable picture! Even if you haven't sent it out, I don't think it's too late, everybody loves to see cute babies..the hat is cute but your baby steals the show! Congrats on your son and hope things settle down for you very soon. Thanks for sharing at my party! Happy Mothers Day!

Look at you! That's a great shot, you've got some talent! I especially love that you made the hat for him. Makes it that much more personalized and special. Maybe you could send it out on his first birthday with a new picture too so everyone can see how much he's grown. It's too cute not to send to everyone. :)
