Time to hear your input!

All right, people. If you feel so inclined, post a comment with the following details on your prediction for Merrell Baby #2:

Date and time of birth
Weight
Who's he going to look like
Anything else you want to add (could it have escaped our notice all this time that I'm having twins?)

Here is some info if it helps make your prediction:
My official due date is 4/20/08. I am 38 weeks and 1 day pregnant. Naomi came at 37 weeks and 2 days (so this little guy is already late...in my mind!). Naomi weighed in at *7 lb. 4 oz. and CLEARLY looked like a Merrell (I still get those comments all the time).

At my 37 week appointment (1 week ago), I was 2 cm dilated, 75% effaced, and the baby was in a -1 position. The doctor randomly guessed he was about 7 lb.

Now a word to the wise: I am a completely hormonal, irrational pregnant female. If you predict for me to go over the due date by 2 weeks or have a 13 pound baby, I may initiate a discussion with you on why you do not feel there is a Supreme Being or some measure of mercy in existence who has compassion and watches over us!

Update: the previously listed weight was a typo, not an exaggeration.

Bethany & Gals vote for:
Date and time of birth: 04/19/08 @ 2358 (2 minutes before his due date just to be ornery)
Weight: 7 lb 8oz
Who's he going to look like: Val's forehead & nose, but Matt's chin (haha not even sure if Matt has a distinctive chin, just thought I would up my chances by adding several points I could be right on.)
Anything else you want to add: Lots of hair, won't sleep through the night until after the 2nd week home.

Val, I know that all mother's think their kids are monsters when they are born, but I REALLY DOUBT Naomi was 37 pounds.

Let's see, I guess April 12th at 8PM ONE baby boy weighing 7 lbs 8 ozs and
looking like (surprise!) the Merrell AND Jones sides!~ Healthy & Happy is what we are praying for most of all, well, besides a speedy delivery once the parents reach the delivery room of the hospital. Love You, Mom

I predict:
April 13, 5:53 am
7 lbs 15 oz.
Looking like Matthew with large cheeks (I know, a little hypocritical) and Val's nose.

Good Luck!

I predict:
4/16, 12:35pm
8 lbs 4 oz.

He will look mostly like Val, except for the monstrous calves which have to come from Matt. ;)

4/18/08 at 2pm and I think he will show both Jones and Merrill, but the Jones portion will be more dominate.

Good luck, you look beautiful!

Ok I've been thinking about this for a day or so and now here's my prediction...
He'll be born next Wednesday April 16th @ 5:35pm. Weighing in at 7lbs 8 oz and will be very handsome, with a cleft in his chin and lots of dark hair. The nurses will all be cooing over him and he'll be the star of the nursery. So what will I win exactly? Since I'm pretty sure that I'll be right. Hope it's chocolate...or some kind of precious stone...let me know!! We're super excite to meet our new nephew!
