I love the feel of this! The black background/white type has a bit of a chalkboard feel (which I love). To compliment this, maybe try some fonts that are more hand-drawn looking?

Have you tried baby facing into the design?

Ditto Janelle & Kelly's suggestions. I see you used a script for the "born to" and details but considering the size it doesn't read well to me. Try a font like Frosted mixed with a sans serif. I really love the border illustration!

I like the overall chalk board feel of it. I suggest use fonts that are less curvy so design and text don't get mixed up. I would use 'Rebecca Madison James' for header, and 'Jessica and Robert James' for body text.
