A Contest

We decided it would be fun to have a little contest on our blog.
Guess Little Spike's Birth Date
So here's the deal. You have until 12:00 PM (noon) on January 30th (Wednesday) to guess the day and time that Little Spike will finally grace us with her presence. So if you think she's coming before Wednesday at noon you'd better get your choice in. Whoever is closest will get a prize! And trust me, the prize is worth the 30 seconds it will take you to enter the contest.

Just put your picks in the comment section. If you are too scared to use the comments (or have never figured out how) you can email them to me or Nate and we'll enter them in for you.

Here's the only two things I can tell you that might help you decide...my ACTUAL due date is 01.31.08. My ORIGINAL due date was 02.02.08.

Good Luck!

I will make a guess!! I think Little Spike will make her debut on Thursday, the 30th, at 9pm!

And of course, she'll be absolutely gorgeous, sweet, brainy, and fun, just like her parents!!!

I vote 2/1 at 3 AM. So, really late Thursday night.

Lorne said...

Not that I wish you a late Spike, but I think I'm obliged to pick 2/6. I'll say 2AM. :)

Ben votes for 1/31 at noon. I vote for 2/2 at 9 am.

Lisa said...

On Friday 2/1/2008, at 5:25P.M. you will have ----Arica Walker!

Chad said...

It will be 2/4/2008 at 2:39P.M. As for a name, I like Spike Walker! Good luck and do let us know.

Nate & Carlee said...

I think she will come 2/5 at noon, and I think you had the right idea before...Carlee Walker has a nice ring to it. Although it might be weird to have a daughter-in-law named Carlee...don't think for a second that I have forgotten our deal. =)

I've been referring to the little fetus as "Spike" or "Lil Spike" for weeks now! She even has an e-mail address to that effect. I think that trumps any _actual_ names...

Tracy said...

I'm going with 2/5 at 2:47pm (we'll all leave our phones on during team! j/k)

Jason & Makenna said...

2/8 at 1:30 P.M. Sorry Mandy!

2/6 at 1705. Sorry for being a pessimist, but I can't wait to see her.

Grandpa E. said...

I think probably from the looks of things the baby will arrive about February 1 at 1;30 am. Good luck and may god bless you.

Bill said...

I'm going with 2/2/08 at 2:30 PM.

Erica said...

My guess is February 1st at 4:15 p.m. Good luck, Mandy! It's going to be so exciting to finally have Little Spike here. And believe me, I know, you are probably more ready than any of us for her arrival! :) Hang in there!

Ken said...

Hey,

I'll take 2/3/08, 12:31 A.M. ...,, But I want 10 tickets.

Love you, Dad

Tasha said...

Of course I want in on this contest. My guess is 2/2/08 at 6:30 AM. This is how late I was with my first baby so we'll see if I have any luck.

Jan said...

Since this little one has slp genes, I think she'll be prompt but in the early hours. How about Feb 1 at 4:30am.

Joy!

Jan

dnguyen said...

I LOVE contests -- this is SO exciting! (As are babies.) 2/2 at the stroke of midnight is my guess. Whenever it is, I wish you both a safe, healthy and beautiful birth.

Good luck with that.

Anxious Grandma said...

Since you were 3 days early and it is already past that I will guess 2/3/08 at 12:30 PM. You were born on a Sunday as well!
I can hardly wait!

Gail said...

I will say 2/4 at 3:03 AM - all the numbers of Nathan's birthdate, and the time he was born as well - it would be a good omen!

Nate & Miranda said...

Polling is closed folks! Hope you enjoyed the contest, we'll have a winner for you in the next couple of weeks.

Jon & Staci said...

I didn't even get a chance to check this out until after it closed?! I'm still going to guess, but you're going to really not like it.

Feb 7 7:31 am

Before Griff was born, I was putting together his birth announcements. While trying to create the layout I needed to include the details for space fillers. I'd said he'd be born on March 19 (I could cheat on that because I had a scheduled induction) at 11:30 am. He was born at 11:29 am. Can't beat that, huh?

I'll be thinking about you. Enjoy the last few days of just you & Nate.
