Oh Baby, Where Art Thou?

My due date is Monday, but we have no expectation of having a baby here anywhere near that soon. Henry was a post-date induction, and I won't be shocked if this baby has a similar birthday in store. On Monday we finally got the baby furniture out of the attic. I still don't have my bag packed for the hospital. Maybe I should work on that this weekend. We do have the car seat, some diapers, a few onesies and a blanket. The rest is just fluff anyway.

So, loyal readers, both of you, in the comments give your best guess for when this baby will show up, what gender it will be, what size it will be and suggest a name appropriate for the predicted gender. Actually, suggest lots of names. I'm worried we'll leave the hospital with the birth certificate filled out as "Baby Johnson."

May 30. A boy. 7 lbs. 15 oz. And there's nothing wrong with "Baby Johnson" on the birth certificate while you decide on an appropriate name. Not Kurt or Kirk or Craig or Greg--you can't tell those names apart. How about "Jack"? That's what Grandpa Wayne was going to be named originally. Edward is good. Nathan is good.

I vote girl, May 25th, but no idea on the name. E will be SO excited if you do have a girl, she gets personally offended when a baby boy is in the mommy's tummy!

May 27th. IT IS A GIRL. You guys are due for a girl in your family. If it is a boy, I do like Jo Ellen's suggestion, Jack. But since its a girl, you'll have to go with Wendy. Or how about my middle name, Lynn? You probably wouldn't like my real suggestions anyways :D

Darla said...

I guessing a boy. Born may 28th. How about Bradford, or Bradley or just plain Brad.

I guess a baby GIRL

May 30th

And since Henry is such a fab old school name, I think you should go with something to match, like Julia, Elizabeth, Annabelle, Priscilla

Praying for a safe & healthy baby!
