The Baby Game

Everyone always wants to guess when a baby is going to be born, and some people even put together pools for their friends. Well, Rebecca and I have decided that all of our internet friends need to be involved in a game like this, so we're going to set up a pool on my blog. We want you guys to guess the date that the baby is going to be born, and how much it's going to weigh. Whoever gets the date right, and comes the closest to getting the weight right will win their choice of either two of my books (winner's choice), or a $25 gift card from Barnes & Noble. If the weight splits between two entries, then whoever picks the right gender will be the winner.

VERY IMPORTANT RULE: My blog feeds all across the internet, so only entries made at will be considered.

So, if you'd like to play, go to my main blog address and post your answer in the comments section. We need the date the baby will be born, how much it will weigh, and whether or not it will be a boy or a girl.

And for the record, the due date is Nov. 6th.
