Feel free to leave a guess about Miriam’s arrival in a comment:
I’m looking forward to seeing Andrew’s guess. When Rachel was born he made up the birth announcement in advance and his filler text was almost spot on. Seriously. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with this time!
* We reserve the right to renege on a prize if we forget, which is likely.
**Also, anyone who guesses too far into November will be shunned for an indeterminate amount of time.

(I'm gonna be totally wrong by the way.:)
I was shunned from the age of four until my sixth birthday!! lolReplyDelete
And, uh, yeah, that's my guess! ;) take care, nancy. this too shall pass.
Ooh, I'm terrible at this! I thought Anda would be early and small. She was a week late, 8 1/2 pounds.ReplyDelete

October 25th, 3:30 pm. 7 lbs. 10 oz. 20".ReplyDelete
Oct. 31 (Yes a Halloween baby)ReplyDelete
4:35 am (Mountain Time, just so you have to do math)
October 27th, 11:44 pm, 7lbs. 14 oz., 21"--so she can be just. like. me!ReplyDelete
(Disclaimer: I might have to revise the weight and length guess after I check with my mom; but the other stuff is right :)
@ David -- You would wish two such children on me? Meanie! Pity the day YOU start having kids!ReplyDelete
@ Josie -- Good recovery. I almost had to shun you.
@ Lydia -- What have I told you about tuna fish?!
@ Rachel -- What did you do? Check out Rachel's stats before guessing?
@ Bridget -- Nothing interesting to say, but hi! Thanks for playing. :)
@ Vernon -- Thanks, I love math. Not.
@ Sara -- Revisions welcome.
So, if the baby is born in the morning there, which means it's the evening here, and you move back here, what should Miriam's birthday be that you celebrate here?ReplyDelete
6 lbs 10 oz
5:00 (somewhere.. hehe)
7 lbs 12 oz
19" and 6.9 lbs.
Here is the scenario: Andrew home from school, light dinner, bring Rachel to my house, go to the hospital, labor quickly and efficiently, have a sweet baby, sleep really well and then have the weekend to do a bit of adjusting before Andrew has to go back to school:)

@ David -- We'll just keep her birthday the day and time she was born, without adjusting the time zone. We did that here for the rest of us...but then teased each other that it wasn't really our birthday yet. :)ReplyDelete
@ Amiee -- I think that sounds like a great plan!
I'm no good at guessing so I'll just spare myself the embarrassment. :) My due date is actually before yours by a good 4 days, but I have to admit - it's nice knowing she won't be any later than the 12th! C-sections are nice for that but that's about it. Recovery is a bit of a beast. I hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well! I can't wait to see pictures of Miriam!ReplyDelete
I'm not really bitter, Natalie. :) I can't wait to see pictures of Sophie, either! Next time we have kids at the same time ('cuz we seem to do that, apparently) can we plan it for spring instead of the middle of summer? Of course, I guess it's not the middle of summer for you there...ReplyDelete
I know you're not bitter - I'm just giving you a hard time! :) I feel very good about a spring baby! I've had two summer babies and now a Fall baby, I think it's time to switch up the seasons a bit. For now I'm thinking Spring 2012 when Lewis finished his MBA...assuming he gets in first. :) How do you feel about that? :)ReplyDelete
Oct 30 8am 20" 7lbsReplyDelete
I thought of it being Friday morning so that you would have the streets all to yourself (in case you decide to take a taxi) that way the baby is born in the hospital not in the taxi/metro :)
Thanks, Mirza! :) We definitely don't want a taxi/metro baby!ReplyDelete
i hope 10/14 ...that way i'll never forget her b-day 6 pm at night ours or egypts...better odds....20.4" long 7 lbs 8 ozReplyDelete
6lbs. 15 oz
19 and 1/2" long
I agree with Amiee House scenario....if it works awesome... if not do the next best thing....Good Luck and Wonderful birthing.... HUGS!!!!!

4:39 AM Cairo time (sometimes kids just don't make things very convenient you know)
(Now I'm even more excited to find out... mostly to see how close I am, not like I have any child size/timing experience)
