FYI - We had a baby

Most people get their baby announcements out by the time the baby is a couple months old. Most people have a simple post card printed and shoot it in the mail. The Harmans are a little different. I wouldn't say we have babies, just to make the announcements, but Ben does start thinking about the announcements before the baby bump appears. Our baby announcements have to be worthy of entering design contests, winning awards, and oh yeah - also sending a few out to family and friends.

Ben's been working so hard on this. For weeks our kitchen has transformed into an announcement making factory - stamping, heating, and sewing. He's almost done. Almost. These announcements are such a pain to make and so big that we're just making enough for family and design contests, plus we don't want people to feel guilty for throwing them away. So, Ben made me some post cards to send out, too. I'll be getting them off soon...

Hopefully Evan's birth announcement will be as well-received as Lucas's birth announcement. I'll post a pic of the final product when it's done... Until then, here's a video of Ben working hard.
