In seven days, a new life will be brought into the world. The little tyrant in Sarah’s belly has been pushing and prodding around, rearranging organs, desperate to make more room in there. Version 2.0 has taken Sarah’s belly button, and turned it inside out. There simply is just no room left in there.
On the morning of February 8, a C-section will be performed on my wife. Our care provider doesn’t support natural birth after a previous C-section (VBAC), so instead of searching out a different hospital and a different midwife, we’ve opted to “play ball,” as they say.
We’ve also decided that we are not going to find out the sex of the baby until his or her arrival. Rather, Sarah has decided, and I’ve opted to “play ball”. Many of our friends, family, and loved ones have made guesses, accusations, and threats of what the sex of Version 2.0 will be. I’ve decided to make a contest out of it.
For the next seven days, I will be collecting comments here (don’t let me down, dear readers. Stop lurking, and post a comment!) of what you believe the sex of Version 2.0 to be. You have a 50/50 chance, so let’s add a couple modifiers. Along with the sex of the baby, you may also guess weight, length, and even take a stab at a name. There is a chance that my dear wife – who simply cannot keep a secret (seriously, don’t trust her with nuke codes. The terrorists would have them in no time) – may have let slip a couple names we are thinking of to her sisters. If that’s the case, YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GUESS THE NAME!!!
Your only assistance will be a picture – above – of Sarah’s belly, one week before delivery (taken Monday, January 31, 2001 @ 10:31p EST). Also, you can reference Tyler’s stats as well (10 pounds, 2 ounces and 22 inches long at birth).
The winner gets…. wait for it… bragging rights!!! Seriously folks, I have to start paying for diapers again. You think I can afford to spend my money frivolously on a gift to send to you for making a guess? If you win, go play the lotto.
