Gimme your best guess

OK, time for a blog pool! In a shameless effort to increase comments on my blog, I'm asking you to leave a comment with the following information:

Your guesses about the baby:

1. Gender (I'm throwing this one in just for you few funny people who still think there is a chance that a Y chromosome might be involved here.)
2. Date of birth (remember my track record - 2 on time, 3 late)
3. Size of baby (my other five ranged from 8 lbs 10 oz to 10 lbs 10 oz, from 19.5 in to 23 in)
4. Hair color (At birth we've had a blonde, two brunettes, and two redheads)
5. Length of labor

The person who gets the closest wins the first opportunity to change a dirty diaper. Or bring me a Dr. Pepper. Or smelling salts if it is, indeed, a boy.

All right Tami, I guess it is a race to the finish for the both of us...here are my guesses...
1. Girl
2. before mine
3. bigger than mine
4. longer than mine
5. blonde
6. WAY shorter than mine

#3 and #4 aren't great, but if you can handle 10lb. 10oz...you can handle anything! Good Luck! We'll see who makes it first!

Love ya,
Janice

Lora, I was really pulling for you! But alas, I believe you have missed the date of birth. Too bad.

Hope you get to feeling better soon!
