Thank you everyone for the comments :) @Sydney thank you so much for your feedback - the type was bothering me but I couldn't put my finger on what was off - I adjusted it as you suggested and it looks so much better - so thank you! :)

Beautiful! A few suggestions on the type that are strictly personal preferences: I would keep the script in all lower case letters. Also, for the baby's name, I don't think you need a full space between first, middle and last names since each part of the name is in a different color. Either way it's still going to be fabulous :)
