And We Know That Deliv'rance is Nigh

My family has a tradition when a delivery is imminent: we all try to see who can guess what the baby's statistics will be. (My oldest sister has a crazy knack for outguessing the rest of us much of the time.) When we were children, we got a dime for each correct answer. It's a good thing they gave up passing out dimes, because it would have become exponential, what with their rapidly increasing posterity (lots of babies, lots of contestants).

So, since YONF is due to deliver a sweet little mini-yonf on October 22 , I'm making it a Year of No Fear contest! (Hey YONF, if I dare you to deliver naturally, does the Year of No Fear require you to?)

Here's what you can guess at:

  • Date (Hint: The doctor suspects she'll go early)
  • Time
  • Weight
  • Length
  • (We already know he's a boy)
Make your guesses in the comments. The closest guess for each stat wins . . . um . . . a dime?

I'll play, only to prove false the theory that I'm a good guesser. How ever did I get that reputation? Although, I'll take it over some of the other reputations I seem to have acquired.

Sunday, October 5, wouldn't that be a great day. And I think that you will have him early in the morning, like 5 am.
