Place Your Bets!

Two posts in one day? I know! But this is IMPORTANT.

With less than three weeks to go (due date = December 6), it's time to start placing your bets, fair readers. Please leave in the comments section your best guesses on Sprout's:

Date of arrival

Some helpful hints:

Oscar weighed in at 8lbs 6oz and was 21.25 inches long. He arrived two days before his due date.

I was my mother's second child and I arrived two weeks early clocking in at 7lbs 13ozs and 21 inches long.

Nelson was also his mother's second child and he was 7lbs 11oz and 20 inches long. His mom can't remember if he was early or late, so he probably wasn't late. Late you don't forget.

So, come regular commenters and regular lurkers! Show your faces and place your bets, people! Winner gets eternal glory.

Also, go check out Baby Bunching. It's an awesome site by, for, and about those of us crazy enough to have two kids in less than two years.

Hmm.. I'm guessing a girl. 7lbs 8oz, 19 1/4" long. How about next Thursday, the 27th? (I'm cheating and just giving you stats from my second kid). I swear I didn't know you were waiting to find out the sex.. I thought it was another boy for some reason.
