Make a Good Guess!!!

I have to admit that I stole this idea from one of my MOMYS friend who is due just a few days before I am. It looked like so much fun though that I just had to try it out myself!

So here's the deal: You guess the gender, date of birth, time of birth, weight and height of our new little blessing. The person who comes the closest receives a 5$ Amazon card!!! ( Okay, I know that's not really all that exciting, but I'm hoping it will encourage a few of you to come out of hiding!) My official due date is January 21, 2010. Here's what has happened so far!

Gender: Girl~ Lydia Grace
Birthday: 5/6/05 ( 1 day late)
Time of birth: 3:35 a.m.
Weight: 7lbs 2oz
Height: 19 in.


Gender: Girl~ Bethany Rachel
Birthday: 11/21/06 ( 3 days late)
Time of birth: 8:35 p.m.
Weight: 8lbs 2oz
Height: 20 in.


Gender: Girl~ Havilah Kathryn
Birthday: 4/22/08 ( 6 days late)
Time of birth: 1:07 a.m.
Weight: 7lbs 9 oz
Height: 20 in.


Remember, even if you don't have a Google account, you can still comment under the "anonymous" option! Only guesses submitted by January 10 will count for the gift card. I can't wait to hear your guesses. I especially can't wait to find out who is right!!!

I made about 20 birth announcement proto-types before my baby boy was born (I did crazy things in the 9 DAYS I WAS OVERDUE). I guessed on the date/weight/length and was completely wrong on everything. It's fun guessing though! How is the name game going? Maybe you should have us suggest on that one too!

Like I have suggested along, the new little one should match Mitch's birth, so my guess is male,
1-24 (sorry if you have to be overdue) 9 lbs even, 20 1/2 inches. 8:57 am.

Can't wait to meet him or her!

I think an Amazon gift card sounds great btw! I plan to start up my baby poll this weekend and I was thinking a $5 McDonalds gift card as the prize. I hope you managed to rest today (I read your post on MOMYS but didn't comment) .. I have been super tired lately as well.

*not sure what happened with that "deleted post" - sorry!

I didn't see this on MOMYS, but it's a cute idea! I haven't been on lately...taking a break b/c I've had a lot going on...but I've missed you!

I totally won doing this with another friend of mine (probably not through any special skill). She didn't offer a prize though, except the offer of changing diapers . . . I like your prize better. :)

Well, of course we know it's a girl, right?!?!?! (Sorry David--but I predicted many daughters for you from the day you said "I do"!)
I hate to say this, Grace...but when you look at the track record (1 day late, 3 days late, 6 days late) it kind of looks like you're headed for 9 days late (1x3, 2x3, 3x3, etc.) I REALLY hope I'm wrong, but I figure if I guess Jan. 30th, then anything sooner will seem like a blessing! Since I'm guessing late, I'll at least give you an early-in-the-day time. How about 12:02 a.m.? And I'll also be kind on the weight--let's say, 6 lbs 12 oz. 19 1/2" long. I honestly hope I don't win--I like Charlene's date best!!
I love you! --Mom
