Make a guess, win a prize

I got this idea from Crystal over at Money Saving Mom, who had a baby boy last week and named him Silas Benjamin. Such a cute name. But I thought it was a fun idea, so I'm going to do it too.

Guess baby's birthday and win a canvas shopping tote from my shop (except it will probably have colored webbing handles). Don't we all need more totes to add to our reusable supply? If you do, then make a guess. Everyone is welcome to guess--even all of my family.

Leave a comment with the date and time you think this little guy will be born, and also make a guess on his weight. Whoever comes closest to the actual date and time will win, and I'll use the weight as a tiebreaker if needed.

Here are some hints to help you guess:
  • The original due date given at the first ultrasound was May 19th, but a few weeks ago I had another ultrasound just to check size and the computer was saying May 21st. However, at that second ultrasound, baby was measuring kind of big.
  • I had an appointment on Monday of this week and my doctor found that my body is already starting to move things along and is getting prepared for labor
  • James was born 3 weeks early (water broke) and Owen was born right on his due date (induced)
  • James weighed 6 lbs. 2 oz. and Owen was 8 lbs. 4 oz.
  • My mom is flying in tomorrow morning and once she gets here I am planning some seriously long walks--perhaps even some jogging--to get this thing moving.
I think maybe I should say you have to make your guess in the next couple of days, since it could technically happen anytime. So all guesses made before Saturday night at midnight will be counted in the contest.

Have fun.

I'm going with May 21st at 1:02 am. That's the date and time that I entered this world. Although I weighed 9 lbs 14 oz and I wouldn't wish that on anyone, so I will guess 7 lbs 9 oz.

Good luck!!!
