As many of you know, my wife and I are expecting our first baby in October. As the due date speeds toward us, I thought it would be fun to have a little baby pool here on HSC, and give away a couple of prizes.

2 Ways to Win

You have two chances to win. Leave a comment below with your guess as to the baby’s birthday (and time) and weight.

Whoever posts the closest guess for either category without going over WINS.

That’s 2 chances to win, unless one brainiac happens to guess BOTH. ๐Ÿ™‚

The Prizes

Winners may choose from one of the following prizes:

The Due Date

The baby’s due date is…get this…10/10/10!! Will he come early? Late? Will he be huge? Tiny? You tell me.

Leave a comment below with your guess. Again, you’ll want to guess the date and time, and also the weight (in pounds and ounces). For example: January 3, 2011 – 78 lbs. 4 oz. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll announce the winner(s) at some point after he’s born. ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy guessing!
