This is probably really tacky, but here's a print-it-yourself birth announcement. I won't be sending them out by mail, so if you want one, click on it to get the larger version, and then have it printed at your favorite photo place.
Here are some photos from Bogdan's birth day and the days following:
"He has a nose!"
Bouncing to Vasilevka
When they first brought him back to me
For those of you who praying that I'd be able to keep him with me: he was only away from me for the first two (long!) hours. When we got there, the ambulance lady handed him off to the baby nurse, and I didn't see him again for two hours. The nurse was really nice, and kept coming to tell me exactly what she was doing with him and to ask my permission for each step, but I still wasn't too happy. After that, though, they wouldn't have taken him, even if I had begged for a rest!
In his hospital bed
One on each wrist
(made from gauze and a piece of mattress cover)
Skipping a few days here....
Does that satisfy the desire for pictures?
