Did you know you can request an Official White House Birth Greeting? A friend mentioned it to us, we looked into it, and it's true! What a nice, historical memento to pass along to your child or include in a scrapbook or memory box.

According to eHow, your request for a greeting from the President must be made after your child's birth, but before his or her first birthday. The White House website hasn't updated their online form yet, but in the meantime you can write or fax your request. The White House Greetings Office also accepts requests to honor birthdays (80 years and older), weddings, bar/bat mitvahs and earning either the Eagle Scout or Girl Scout Gold Award.

Who knew?
