Joni Lay of made the cutest name announcements for her little girls. Their names were explained and people were able to learn the correct spellings. She placed the announcement on her newborn and sent the pic out to friends and family.

Did you do anything similar?

I like this a wee bit more than the standard date/time/pounds/inches because it can be made ahead of time. By the time "birth" announcements are sent everyone already knows you had a baby and probably have already seen a photo.
