Blue or Red?


Tomorrow, Tuesday the 16th at 10:00 a.m. CST, I will be distracting myself in the waiting room at Ultrasona with a magazine so that I don't ruin the experience for the woman in front of me by hovering outside the door asking, "Are you done yet?"

To mark this special day when we'll (cross your fingers) find out if we're having a little boy or a little girl, I'm taking a poll and doing a give away. You just have to add your two cents as to what you think this baby might be by visiting the side bar on your left and clicking on one of two options. (Pretty sure we've outruled multiples so you only get two.) Since I'm not sure we can track who voted, you'll also want to add a comment under this post with your first name, first initial of your last name, and how you voted. Once we call our families and share the big news, we'll be back here to pick a name that guessed right. You'll receive your choice of a Sonic or Starbucks gift card for a sweet treat of your own!

I'll be closing the polls tomorrow (Tuesday) at around one and announcing the winner soon after so make sure you come back in the evening to see if you've won.

Thanks for playing!

Rachel

I'm going with girl for 2 reasons:

i'm thinking (well, really just hoping) that it's a girl because 1) that would give you one of each - and how perfect is that! and 2) i reeeeeaaaaalllly like the name y'all are thinking about, and naming your boy ny that name would be kind of weird. :]

Leslie P. (Formerly Leslie Horn) Just found your blog through Ashley Campbell and have loved catching up on your life. Your family, home, and art are just gorgeous and as I read I find myself thinking, "Why didn't I take advantage of getting to know this girl better when we were on the same little campus?!?" I guess blogland will have to suffice until the next OBU reunion! I voted GIRL!

How SUPER exciting!! I can remember after having Lowell finding out that we were having a little girl. Although the tech said, "just don't take any tags off the clothes" in case they were wrong. Of course I had to go to Fetal Photos and get a second opinion and what do you know, we had little Chloe!! hehe. Can't wait to hear your big news:)

Big hugs!
Kari

Klara J said...

It's gotta be a girl. I can so see Sebastian as the sweetest big brother to a little fairy princess :)

smauge said...

Aren't we a bunch of idealists eh? It seems the majority (me included), taking into account the gender of your first born, wish you to have one of each.
Mine was a personal vote as I was blessed with one each. Oh yeah, it's a circus in this house!
It really doesn't matter though does it? You'll seethat little being and you'll be counting the days til he/she is in your arms.
I'm not leaving my details as I am over her in Australia and have no idea what Sonic even is.
Good luck and have fun!
