    Bets on the Baby
    Today Kaitlyn suggested to Mom that everybody place a bet on the gender, weight, hair color, and date of birth of Mom's baby with the prize being whoever wins skips dishes for one night- and Mom agreed! So here is a list of the bets:

    Mom: Girl 8 lbs 2 oz DOB 6/22/06 dark hair
    Deanna (me): Boy 7 lbs 9 oz DOB 6/23/06 blonde hair
    Kaitlyn: Boy 8 lbs 7 oz DOB 6/21/06 dark hair
    Lydia: Boy 8 lbs 5 oz DOB 6/23/06 dark hair
    Megan: Girl 7 lbs 8 oz DOB 6/25/06 red hair
    Natalie: Boy 7 lbs 8 oz light hair
    Becca : Boy 8 lbs 3 oz light hair

    Becca and Natalie didn't know when they thought the baby would be born so they skipped that one.

    Dad just said that we could have a contest! So leave a comment with your guess about

    sex of the baby
    date of birth
    color of hair

    and we will give a prize to the person who is closest to the actual figures. See my dad's post here for details

    Yippee! I love a contest... especially a baby contest! Let's see. My guess is:

    7lb 3oz.
    21 1/2 inches long

    and I'll even guess the time of birth! I say he will be born at 6:39 pm. How's that?

    And I'll wait till Sunday to say Congradulations!

    Hi Deanna,

    I have enjoyed reading your blog as well as your mom and Kaitlyn's blogs for a few months, but I guess it is high time to come out of the woodwork. It's cool to find someone else with the same name; I'm the oldest in my family too, but I only have three younger siblings.

    Here is my guess:

    8 lbs. 5 oz.
    Friday, June 23.
    light "sandy" hair
    21 1/4 inches

    sandy hair
    7 1/2 lbs
    20 inches
    6/24 in evening

    Oh fun :) I say:

    8lbs 2oz (just coz that's what I weighed at birth)
    21 inches
    I'm having trouble figuring out what time it would be there, but on a wild guess I say the baby will come this weekend (well, do dearly hope!)

    Oh yeah,

    Tell your mom it has to be a boy because my sisters already have the book "So Much More" and I like pocketknives. :)
