Update PIP Newborn Pics?

I had been wanting to get the boys' newborn pics done since they came home. A family friend offered to take them but would never lock down a date. Finally I emailed her the boys were about 7 weeks at this point and her response was "I don't know when" So, I found someone else to do them last weekend. Since the boys are preemies, they could still pass for big newborns at 11 weeks, heh. BTW, anybody know when they stop being labeled "preemies"... or are they always preemies?Is it weird that I'm going to use one of the pics taken last week on their birth announcements being sent 3 months after the fact..., especially when I am putting their birth weights on the announcements? They were 4lbs, 14oz and 4 lbs, 6 oz at birth and are currently around 9lbs each actually my hunka chunka C is probably over 10... it's hard to believe he was the smaller one at birth!Thanks!

Thanks ladies! I will definitely share the pics when I get them, but for now here they are sucking their thumbs lol



I hope this works... My work computer hates the bump now so I'm on my phone

ETA sorry if they're huge!

  • I don't think that's weird at all! I'd use whatever picture you like the most and if that's the pic of them that you really like, then use it!

  • Not weird at all. An announcement is to give everyone the stats from when your babes were born. Use whatever pic you love momma! Glad to see your boys are gaining and growing well!

  • Don't worry! It's not weird!

    As for being preemies, I believe that adjusted age no longer matters by 2 years. Until then, being a preemie is taken into account for milestones.
    5 losses and several failed cycles

  • It's not weird. Yay for big babies!

  • Not weird!! We did pics three weeks after their birthday and I didn't get them out for three months. Life with newborn twins is too hectic for correspondence!

    My boys were late term preemies, but their medical professionals still refer to them as such. I've been told they won't take their adjusted age into account after age two.
    TTC in 2009, Dx: Unexplained IF
    Three TI cycles (BFP...miscarriage), five IUI attempts and 2.5 IVF cycles later...BFP!!

    Our perfect baby boys were born at 36w1d!! 

  • I agree with everyone else.  Use whatever picture you like.  L is almost 6 weeks old and his birth announcements with his newborn pictures on them will not go out until he is 7ish weeks old bc I just ordered them this week!
    Married July 2011; TTC since April 2011; DX: MFI
