Prediction

I am going to be an aunt at 11:57pm on Wednesday, February 27, to Ian James, 7lbs, 6oz, and 21" long. Anybody else have a prediction?

  1. Oooh fun! I was thinking about doing this, but yeah, go for it!

    You're shooting for Wednesdays, eh? Convenient that you'd already be in Waco. :-)

    And he almost makes it until midnight with your prediction, almost a Feb. 28 baby.

  2. Well, I figured I could put in a half day at work, then come over and "labor coach." :) I first had 3:30pm down, but decided for the more dramatic midnight birth. :)

    By the way, I had a dream the other night that you had an emergency C-section and I missed the birth! I'm having anxiety dreams just like I did before Leanna's wedding! Aaaahhhh!!

  3. Well, you won't have to wear a fancy dress or carry my train or anything like that. :-)

    I like your new header, by the way. So, you're not switching to wordpress, are you?

  4. Nope. Not switching. I've got four blogs on Blogger (only 2 public ones), and that just equals one big hassle. Plus, I like how well it integrates with several other Google apps. So, instead of spending lots of time switching, I figured I could spend a little time sprucing up the current site.

    For the people who switched to Wordpress, you guys don't have to keep your Blogger IDs to comment; there's a drop-down menu in the comments for what ID you're using. That way, your name will link to your current blog, not to your blogger id with an out-of-date blog.

  5. Crazy people...I vote for February 25th cause that's my mommy's bday. How about 8lbs 3oz, 21" tall at 3:42 p.m.

  6. I vote for Feb 14th (because that is your uncle Paul's birthday who in a round about way gave you life)at 2:16 pm (time of your birth), 6lbs 11ozs and 19 inches long (just like his mamma) But I will settle for any time of day or night and healthy and big and strong.

  7. Isn't it nice...you get one short time in your life where people want you to be big and plump...and yet you can't even enjoy ice cream yet.

  8. Feb. 24th -- our five year courtship anniversary!

  9. Why can't I enjoy ice cream? Cuz believe me, I enjoy ice cream. Had me some Katie's Custard just this afternoon!

    (There was a time in first trimester when I couldn't eat ice cream, though. And I would never eat it past 6 p.m. for fear of heartburn.)

  10. When is the actual due date? I say Feb 29th...leap year baby!

    And I love the new header! Cute owl!

    And this is the third time I have typed this because I am trying to figure out the wordpress login.

  11. Hmm...

    I'll vote for Feb.26 around 6:30 pm, 7 lbs 6 oz, 21 1/2" long. Is there a prize for whoever gets closest?

  12. K-Not you being chubby, the baby!

    ReplyDelete
  13. OHHHHHHH! So, I'm not cute and chubby right now? :-)

  14. Maybe I should clear something up. My brother (birthday Feb 14) gave me a kidney 31 years ago and if it weren't for him I wouldn't be alive therefore Karen wouldn't be here either. That is what I meant in my comment.

    lydia, oh my gosh! You MUST take pictures of my sweet boy! I saw the pictures that you took of babyE and I LOVE them! You are so talented!

    oh! I say, 7 lbs, 14 oz, 19 1/2 inches long, 1:54 pm on the 19th! I say that only because the best thing that has ever happened to me arrived on the 19th, at that time, weighing that much, and was that long! Karen is in for a blessing!

  16. Karen is very cute and chubby! :P

    I agree with you Margie wholeheartedly.

  18. Well, I haven't made a prediction, yet.

    In my OCD-ness, I like numbers that are multiples of three. I also like even numbers, so the 18th or 24th would be good. I also like predictability, so I'm going to go with the actual due date: Feb. 24.

    For the time? Let's see, let's have a Sunday afternoon baby, so we can have a dramatic Saturday middle-of-the-night run to the hospital. How about 3 p.m.?

    On the weight, I can't stick with my 3s since 6 is probably what he weighs right now, and 9 is too big! Let's go with 8 lbs. even. Length would be 21 inches.

    But BabyD, you come when you darn well please and just be healthy. You'll make ANY day special when you do!

  19. Lydia, I love your new heading.

    My guess is that IJ will come into the world weighing 8 lbs, 3 oz, be 22 inches long and will arrive on Feb. 21. I picked the 21st because I'll be out of town on the 24 and I really, really want Karen to give birth before I leave! Do you think you could work on that Karen?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Some friend you are, leaving town on the 24th! :-)

    I'll take bribes from anyone petitioning for a certain day. Hehe.

  21. Here are Mawmaw and Ken's predictions:

    MAWMAW - IAN WILL ARRIVE ON FEB. 24 - 6 LBS. AND 6 OUNCES - 19 1/2 IN. LONG.

    KEN - IAN WILL ARRIVE ON MAR. 1 - 6 LBS. 3 OUNCES - 21 INCHES LONG.

    WE PURPOSELY STAYED AWAY FROM FEB. 29, AS WE DIDN'T WANT THE LITTLE FELLOW TO HAVE A BIRTHDAY ONLY EVERY 4 YEARS.
