First of all, thank you THANK YOU for all of your kind words and well wishes about the birth of our little Clara. It means so much to have so many people sharing in our joy. Now, who of you would like to share in our diaper changes?
Obviously the winner of the baby pool (and the $100 West Elm gift card that goes along with it) is someone who picked May 14th as Baby P’s birthday. And while I’d love to tell you how many people guessed the right date, going through 5600+ entries is admittedly not high on my daddy to-do list. But trust us when we say it was actually a rare choice, with many people guessing (like Sherry) that she’d come a bit late or on her actual due date (which just happens to be today). And in the informal family baby pool that we did with our extended family, not a single person guessed May 14th. Surprisingly, I actually had the closest guess (May 15 at 4:15am – which was only about 10 hours off). But it’s not because I have any sort of daddy intuition at all, I just selfishly selected my own half birthday as the random day that she’d arrive. And apparently she decided to drop in a bit early to surprise us all.
But there’s not a hundred dollar West Elm gift card in my future. That prize goes to one random spot-on guesser from our baby pool who picked May 14th (as selected by random.org). And that lucky lady is… Sue! We’d love to know if you used any secret method when it came to predicting the right date (phases of the moon? pulling numbers out of a hat?). Oh and we’d also love to know what you’ve got your eye on at West Elm! Happy shopping…
