Welcome to the second (and final!) Weiss-Curry Baby Pool.

The winner was the person who guessed the sex correctly and was closest to the date of birth, with weight used as a tie-breaker if necessary. And for the second time in Weiss-Curry Baby Pool history, one person hit all three guesses right on the nose! And the winner is...

Kelley's friend (and fellow TiVo enthusiast)
Paul Fjelstad!

Paul correctly picked May 17 as the birthdate, thought the baby would be a girl, and somehow knew she would weigh in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces. For his prognosticative abilities, Paul wins a year's supply of Turtle Wax.


Thirty-four people weighed in with their opinions. Of those, fewer than half (44%) correctly predicted the baby would be a girl. Only four of you (12%) thought she would be born on or before May 17. Most people also thought she would be lighter than she turned out to be, with only nine people (26%) guessing weights of 7 pounds, 7 ounces or higher.

Jim Baumstark  Boy  5/15/2004  7 Lbs, 0 Oz    Matthew (nearly 3) suggests "Orange" (his favorite color) and Maggie (just turned one) suggests "J" because she thinks it's cool to have the same first letter as her older sibling. Congrats! -Jim & Bridget

I am wishing for a boy to keep us in balance--but I know you will be thrilled with either one (and big sisters are very nurturing). I also think you need a K name for balance, but can't think of many that aren't trendy.

these are some of my favorite names, but I didn't have enough children to use the.
