comments from Jody:

I have a perpetual calendar on my desk, and was intrigued by the circular layout - it reminded me of the "circle of life", which led to that "AHA!" moment when I realized it would be perfect for a baby announcement. :)

Does anyone think it needs a li'l "something else" for more oomph? Or would that just be superfluous? Suggestions are more very welcome!

I'm not sure where to read the baby's birth date and where are the stats?

Thanks guys! Andy - the month and date are highlighted in pink (maybe they need to be bigger or bolder), and the birth stats can be added with a slight adjustment, if needed...

This is a super cool idea. I think a way to make the birthdate more prominent is to line u the month, day, year. LIke its a 3 real wheels, that you spin around. Like a bathroom scale, you could put like a bracket around the month/day/year. You know what I mean? Maybe the brackets/window is in pink?
