Project Baby: It's a... and the winner is...

Holy freaking comments! It seems that if you want people to comment on your blog, host a giveaway! Twenty-three of you commented, and that is pretty significant for my little page o' silliness. Thank you!

Before I posted this little competition, more or less everyone we talked to guessed that we were having a girl, so we were expecting your guesses to be heavy on the girl side. But as it turned out, twelve of you guessed girl and eleven guessed boy, so that's a pretty even split.

At this point I can reveal that roughly half of you were right.

Three of you clicked the "like" button and one of you requested "more, please!". To you I can only say: more giveaways or babies? Sadly, none of you laughed at my "a womb of one's own" joke.

And for those of you who haven't already scrolled down to the bottom to see the results, let me reveal that:

We are having a boy!

And the winner is...

who said:

PS, that rather masculine hand is Nick's, not mine. The only masculine thing about me is my baby boy.


  1. YAY!

    I just did the "I won!" dance - which thrilled Bill.


    I'm SO excited that you guys are having a boy! (Honestly, I prolly would have been excited about a girl, too) Boys are divine. I'm SO excited that I won a hand-knitted goodie from Tamsin! I'm SO excited that Nick's masculine hand pulled my (some would say masculine) name from a hat!

    And I totally laughed at your womb of one's own joke. It's funny on so many levels.

    Also: I'm totally jealous of the number of giveaway comments you received.

    Also also: Bill brought me a diet coke tonight. can you TOTALLY tell?

    (( does the I Won! dance, again ))

    you guys are awesome.

  2. Gratulerer med en liten gutt i magen:) Følge spent med her i Norge:)

    Ha en fin dag:)

  3. I think this is the first time I've ever guessed correctly, ever.

    Pretty sad considering there is a 50/50 chance. :)

    Anyway, congratulations! He'll be adorable (naturally).

  4. I win anyway, because he's MY grandson! Yay!

  5. Argh! I can't believe I missed the chance to win a hand-knitted uterus!!!



  6. I was right about the cute thing anyway, so I think I deserve a "trøstepremie"... at least the present I bought will be perfect.. I am so happy for you. Hugs from aunti Sigrid

  7. Well even though I am sad that I didn't win, I am supper Happy that you're having a BOY! Congratulations! Also I can't wait for your visit to Ohio, We've got our temple appointment all set up. Well have a great week and we'll talk soon to make some defiant plans.

  8. I didn't win the prize, but I guessed right and that's got to be worth something! I'm still happy for me, but even happier for you!

  9. I would have won if I would have remember to enter!! That has to count for something too!!! It's not my fault the brain shuts down! Lala latidatidatida La lala!

  10. YEAH! CONGRATULATIONS!!! Nick and Tamsin are having a boy!
