  • Maybe you can add on your christmas card, for example, "Love, The Wilson Family and new baby Abby" Or incorporate the new baby's name in there and make it known she is new.

  • How about something like, "This year our Christmas present came early" and it can be a picture of your baby & maybe w/a santa hat on him/her. ????

  • I agree with the previous poster. I would do a Christmas card and just include a new family picture with the new baby... But don't push the birth announcement idea too much.

  • I did that. It saves on stamps.

  • Sure- you could say "Merry Christmas from the "Jones" and our new addition, ________.!"

  • I think it's totally acceptable and one less thing you have to deal with as a new mommy. But maybe not push the announcement part too hard like the other girls said...make it known that he/she is new but leave out all the stuff about their birth like their weight and length and all that fun stuff :)

  • I would do a traditional christmas card with a birth announcement inside it.
