Place Your Bets!

It's about time for the "office" to start the "when is Katie going to have her baby" pool!

Since Gordon is my only office-mate (and he's not very vocal about my pregnancy) I'm turning it over to you!

When do you think Baby Hill is going to arrive?
How big do you think he'll be?

Here's PD making his guesses:
And here are some stats to help you:

Baby Hill is technically "due" on August 15th.
I've told Baby Hill that I'd like him to arrive on July 31st (I'm his mother, I should get some say in this).
I've also told him to be 6lbs 2oz.

As you can see, I'm starting obedience training early. No need to waste nine months of training time just because he happens to be in my tummy!

So what do you think? I'm not making any promises, but there just might be a prize* for the winner!!

*Prize to be determined by a very tired, first time mom two months after her baby is born.


  1. I am going to guess August 18th... but I'm thinking I will be penalized for guessing PAST your due date? :)

    1. Yes-- anyone who thinks I'll endure one day past my due date in this Texas heat is automatically disqualified!

      Not really. But I really hope you're wrong.


  2. I'm going to guess August 4th since it's mine and Brian's wedding anniversary :) For the record, Allison's & Wade's is August 5th, so that will be my second guess!

  3. I'm going to say August 8th!

  4. My thoughts on Master Hill making his appearance .
