Default Label for my "baby beer"

So you guys probably know that I brewed a special beer to hand out when my daughter is born, so here is the label. I am open to suggestions/critique.

I took the design from the paint/bedding in our nursery


and came up with

Nice, but one issue. It should be It's, not Its'. Oh, and I bet your wife hopes the baby is not 9 lbs, 4 oz. That would be a big (read: painful) baby.

hehe, thanks Shecky - your definitely right on the typo, and yes, I think we are both hoping for 8 lbs something or less

You could try to make the ' mark in it's to be a pacifier. Im sure you could find some simple silhouette of one online somewhere.

Yeah...I like that. Id see if I could tone down the color on it just a bit so that its more along the lines of the other colors.

It probably won't work given the color scheme, but maybe some pink is in order. I know it's tough to think pink when talking beer, but it is a girl, after all.

I'm glad the baby isn't as big anymore. Your wife is probably breathing easier.

Greg - I think your right now that you say it...I couldn't place it on what looked out of whack. I tried just removing all of the color, but I am not sure if it needs to be in between.


Shecky - this is about all I could come up with pink. I was thinking that it did look kind of boyish, but not sure yet on the outline.

BlackCoffee - Your wife also isn't the only SWMBO that thinks its odd
