and the winner is…


7 months ago, before Gwen’s birth, we did a poll to guess baby Gwen’s birthdate  and size.   I’ve been very late in sharing the results and answering Wendy’s question, “who won the poll?”   Her question has been echoing in my mind for many months.    Here we go, better late than never…

We had 28 guesses and I loved seeing them all.  Gwen arrived on 6/13/11 just 4 days earlier than her official due date.  She was 8 lbs. 13 ounces and 21 3/4 inches tall.

#1-The person who guessed closest without going past her due date was Tiffany!  She was within 8 hours of Gwen’s actual birth.  Tiffany was off on the size but she was closest to the date. 

#2-Another person got all three elements (date, weight & length) the closest.  Guessing the delivery time w/in 24 hours.  Then getting the actual weight, 8 pounds 13 ounces.  For the height, she was only 1/2 inch off from Gwen’s height.  This was Annett’s guess.  I think she might have put in the same exact measurements from her two sons at births (haha) and she got lucky with them being so close to Gwen’s stats! 

Grandma Penny also guessed the weight & 1/2 inch from the actual height.  But the due date was a week later than Gwen’s birthday.  I am thankful that I wasn’t 10 days overdue with Gwen. 


I am putting a copy of the list in Gwen’s baby book.  Thanks to everyone who participated in our fun to get ready for baby Gwen.

Tiffany & Annett both get two cute red Starbucks mugs and a gift card to get a late.   🙂
