IT'S A GIRL !!!!!!!

Miss, or rather Mrs. Jordana (the not-so-old curmudgeon) delivered Beatrix Elizabeth (probably misspelled that, but you get the idea) Monday evening at approximately 7:07.

Beatrix weighed in at 7 lbs 10 ounces and was 19.5 inches long.

Congratulations to the whole Adams clan!

(Hmmm...better go work on seeing who won the pool. Be back later with that info.)

UPDATE:

I DEMAND A RECOUNT!!

Well, the final tally in the Jordana Adam's baby pool is in.

And we have a TIE for first place. And since I didn't expect a tie, I don't have a tie-breaking mechanism in place ... SO ...

It looks like I'll have to compose TWO poems instead of one. Of course that means that they'll each be HALF as good (which really is slicing things thin, if you know what I mean).

The winners should be able to collect their prizes sometime in the ambiguous future. (maybe not quite as speedy as for Earth Girl, since this is my busiest time of year and I'm already a little punch-drunk from using both of my brain cells so regularly - they're not used to the work-out)

So, there you have it.

...

...

What?

...

...

Oh yeah ... the winners!

Francesca Watson (aka The Grouchy Old Yorkie Lady) and Angie Dishman ('cause it's really All About Angie (don't tell Terry)).

Their scores shook out as follows:

Baby's sex - tied for sixth place (both guessed boy)
Baby's weight - Francesca fourth place, Angie third place
Baby's height - Francesca fourth place, Angie third place
Baby's birthdate - tied for first place (with the correct date)
Baby's time of birth - Francesca third place, Angie fifth place

Total combined score - 18

Also rans:
Mercy and Terry - 19 points
Yours truly - 21 points
Jordana - 22 points
Malta Girl - 24 points (probably would have been 1st if not for guessing 10/20 as the date)
Lenise - 28 points
MarcV - 33 points
and proving she can be a team player and not hog all the glory, Earth Girl - 41 points.

Congratulations again to Jordana (and family) on the arrival of Beatrix Elizabeth!
