Announcing the Arrival


The back of the announcement

I just got our announcements done for Noble. We took photos with my sister in law when we were in California mid June. I love the photos and only wish I were not so post pregnancy plump in them. But hey, it was only 5 weeks after Noble was born.

I love the photo of the girls with Noble because it is a true representation of what life around our house is like these days. I am excited to get more of the photos from our session with Elizabeth and see how they all turned out.
The front reads: "Mogan Noble Waite
Welcome to the new life of the Waite family!
Farewell kissed by his sister Camille in heaven,
our little Noble enters the loving embrace of his family on earth
Lauren (4), Ann Marie (6), Sabrina (8)

That is by far the most precious announcement I've ever seen. The wording is SO touching! And the pictures....the pictures speak for themselves. The one picture of Noble (back of card, bottom left side) looks so much like Camille, I think! You are SUCH an amazing family. Your strength and faith continue to teach me so, so much....Thank you.

I love that you included the portrait of Camille in your family picture. My cousin died when she was 15 and her family still includes her portrait in their family pictures too!
