Baker Baby Contest

We are getting ready to go to the doctor this morning, for our weekly appointment. This has inspired me to come up with the official "Baker Baby Contest." I am not sure what the official prize will be for the winner, but we will provide an awesome prize to the winner of the contest. Here is how you win.

In the comments section we would like you to guess the following unknown facts about the baby.
1. Sex
2. Date of Birth
3. Weight at birth (this will be used as a tiebreaker)

Good luck. Here is the information that we already know, and we have already been sharing with people. The official due date is February 2nd and as of right now the Dr. Mac thinks the baby is between 5 and 6 pounds.

I think it is a girl, my guess is that she'll be born on Thursday, February 7th (if your doctor lets you go that long), and she'll weigh 8 lbs 11 oz.

Can't wait to find out! Can't believe it is only a month away!!!

I think that it is a boy and I predict he will be born on January 26th. :) I think he will weigh 8lbs. 6 oz.

So excited to meet Baby Baker!!

congrats good buddy! I think I'll weigh in on this one. If a had a before and after pic of your wife, I'd be able to make a better guess.

I am going with:

Girl (a lot of times a womans facial features change slightly when she is having a boy - my wife's did)

Kid is ready NOW! 6 lbs already?, ok my guess is 7lbs at birth (between 6 1/2 and 7 1/2 to be certain)

Date, Late Jan, last week, 26th is good for me (both I and one of my daughters were born on the 26th of a given month, so, it's a good solid date)

You are certainly in for the ride of your life. hey, I got to catch my 2nd child, not on purpose, it just happened, see if the doc will let you catch....being the first hands to touch your child is very special. Either way, the kids got a great dad and mom.

take care.

First, about the Christmas letters - You all know that I like to toot my own horn with the best of them, but I challenge you to finish a Christmas (or any other season) Letter next year when you have that little one climbing all over you, trying to type his or her own Christmas letter on your lap! I'm only able to write this today because I am at home with our own little one sleeping off some type of flu that has been bothering her for a couple of days! Anyway, about the contest - I predict a boy, born February 1 weighing in at 8lbs., 9 oz.

We sure do miss y'all!

Well, I know nothing "bout birthin' no babies" but I always have an opinion.
I'm voting for January 30th so SHE can celebrate birthdays with Oprah Winfrey each year.
Humm? weight? Let's say 8lbs. 3oz.
any bigger, Sarah should get her way [weigh, get it?] for the next 5years!
Good luck to both of you! Robyn
