Let's Play a Game

Well, in 2 days I will be having a repeat c section to bring the third and final George baby into the world. Here she is at 16 weeks. Isn't she cute in a gray, blurry, awkwardly folded up sort of way?

I thought it would be fun to play a little guessing game about the baby's weight (since we already know the gender). I will give you some facts and if you guess the baby's weight exactly right then I will send you a little prize! :) So here are the stats:

I was 8 lbs 12 oz when I was born.

JM was 9 lbs 10 oz.

Lucy was 7 lbs 10 oz born at 38 weeks (that is 2 weeks early)

Mattie was 6 lbs 6 oz born at 37 weeks (that is 3 weeks early)

I will be 39 weeks when Mia is born, and have gained 25 lbs during this pregnancy.

Although my secret wish is that I will give birth to a 25 lb baby (hey, I am having a c section, so what does it matter, right?) I know that is not the case.

Here are the rules:

You have until Wed. morning to reply, and if more than one person guesses right, I will go with the first correct answer. Put your guess and email address in the comment section here or on facebook- it doesn't matter to me. If no one guesses correctly, then I will just keep the prize for myself! :)

(I only need your email address, so I can get your mailing address to send you the prize. I promise I won't try to sell you anything or forward you anything that tells you you have to forward this email to 10 billion friends or it means you don't love Jesus and will be cursed with chronic diarrhea for the rest of your life)


  1. Hmmm. I'm gonna guess 8 lbs 3 oz. But with no experience in this department, I have a good excuse if I'm wrong! ;)

    Oh, and I'm gonna guess the ultra-sounds where wrong, as they were with a friend of mine, and you'll be bringing a boy home instead of a girl...just sayin'.

    And I can't believe it's already that time! Crazy!

    Jenny, your former MTC neighbor--oh, yeah, you know my email address.

  2. I think that is a pretty good guess, but you shouldn't get JM's hopes up with all that "boy" talk! Ha ha!

  3. 8 lbs 13 oz

    That's what I weighed.
    We'll be thinking about y'all on Wednesday. Hope we get to meet baby Mia soon.

  4. Jamie, I cannot believe you were that big, and you are sooooo tiny now! That is funny! :)

  5. I guess... 8lbs 5oz I love you so much and hope we talk tomorrow before this sweet new arrival comes.

  6. Ok, I just realized when I deactivated FB that I forgot to get your contact info. Please send me your e-mail addy when you get a chance (meaning when you not birthing, nursing, or chasing a toddler) :) mine is .

    All of that to say that you have been on my heart all day today. I didn't realize you were delivering tomorrow, so how exciting! I pray everything goes well and that everything is perfectly textbook.

    Praying for you and the George 5!
