Baby Guessing

Alan holding Addison's adorable little feet.  February, 2012
On our drive out of town last weekend, Alan and I thought it would be fun to take some guesses as to the baby's size and when he'd decide to arrive.  It will be fun to see if we were anywhere close to accurate in a few weeks. 

Arrival date
Cady: December 2
Alan: November 29

Second arrival date guess
Cady: December 4
Alan: December 6
*(Obviously there is some hope here that he comes a little before his estimated due date which is December 8.  My hope is because I'm getting excited/terrified whereas Alan is probably just ready for me to stop complaining about getting bigger.)

Cady: 6:48 AM
Alan: 5:18 PM

Cady: 7 lbs, 3 oz
Alan: 7 lbs, 4 oz

Cady: 19 in
Alan: 21 in

Cady: Dirty blonde peach fuzz but pretty minimal
Alan: Blonde almost bald looking
(I think we described the same thing but in slightly different terms.)

Cady: Blue
Alan: Two ... he then subsequently added that they better be blue or his biology teacher's pants are on fire.

Cady: Nope ... I have one but Alan does not.  If the baby does have one, it would probably be very small.   
Alan: No

Did you make any guesses as to your child's size/arrival date?  And were you anywhere close??  I wonder just how off we'll be!


  1. I said he was going to be 6 lbs and he was 6 lbs 12 ounces. I wasn't sure on his weight. I swore he was going to have brown eyes and brown hair but he came out with blonde and blue eyes :)

  2. And was he on time, early or late? I'm so curious when this little one is going to decide to come along. I love surprises but hate waiting!!!
