Update (2)

Well, me (Zack) and mom are out of the running…

The next good shots at winning are Jen, Wendy, Charlie, Matt, and Eddie.

And Rob got awfully close to our baby’s name with ‘Firefly Moonshadow’

Stay tuned…


As of tonight (10/27) Robin and Adrienne and Drew are out. If he comes tomorrow, me (Zack) and mom will both be winners! (and nobody has got the name yet :0)

As of the writing of this post, we’re about 730 hours away from the expected arrival of our son.

With about a month to go, I thought it would be fun to ‘take bets’ so-to-speak about what he’s going to be like! We’ll even do a prize for whoever gets the closest!

How do you play?
