Esperanza's due date, and Hope's expected arrival, is only 19 days away--September 12. But anyone who knows about babies knows that is a "definite maybe!" At the virtual shower, family members decided to "guess" when little Hope Rose might actually put in her appearance. Because Esperanza promised to send the first photo to the one who came closest, I'm recording those guesses here: Aug. 30--my sister Lee Anne
Sept. 1--my niece, Stephanie
Sept. 5--niece, Kim
Sept. 6--Grandma (me)
Sept. 7--niece, Jessica
Sept. 8--sister-in-law, Kathie AND Esperanza
Sept. 10--sister, Mary
Sept. 11--sister-in-law, Terry
Sept. 13--niece, Amy
If anyone else wants to get in on this, just for fun, feel free to comment here, or send me an e-mail.
Esperanza has another doctor's appointment tomorrow afternoon, so we may have an even better idea how close (or far) she is from "Labor Day!"
We also measured Esperanza's belly with toilet tissue at the shower tonight. Her cousin, Monica, guessed it exactly--11 squares around!
