We hope you aren't sick of baby announcement videos just yet, because we have one more for you. A couple from Minneapolis, Minnesota, used a unique method to introduce their newborn to the world. Chris and Aimee Knutson created a stop-motion video with the story of their son Henry's birth told from the point of view of a precious teddy bear. The bear discovers a positive pregnancy test, witnesses a nursery being assembled, and then checks out a sonogram image. Little Teddy anxiously waits by the front door as Henry arrives home in his car seat, and finally the two meet in Henry's crib.

The couple started filming shortly after Aimee found out she was pregnant last summer. Dad Chris, a local comedian, told the St. Paul Pioneer Press the idea came about when he ordered the bear online. He said, "When it arrived and I opened it up, I immediately thought of the idea of doing a stop-motion video with it." And just as many famous stars do, Henry made the crew wait for his arrival to finish the film. Chris says, "Part of the fun was waiting for our final actor." With more than 200,000 views on YouTube, it seems like it was well worth the wait.
