How to enter:
This giveaway is baby pool-style! Meaning, guess the date and time of the baby's birth, plus the baby's gender, weight, and hair and eye color via our uber-swanky Official Baby Pool***. The people closest to the accurate birth information win two three books of their choice!
Read and Sara's super-cute maternity shoot!

Helpful hints from Sara and Read, the soon-to-be parents:
  • Official release due date: Friday, July 13th
    • Sara was a few days late; Read was a few days early
  • Time of birth
    •  Sara was born a little before 4 a.m.; Read was born around 12:30 p.m.
  •  Eye color
    • Sara has hazel eyes; Read has dark brown eyes
  •  Hair color
    • Sara has light brown hair; Read has dark brown hair ... but both had only peach fuzz at birth!

(The books: Are You My Mother?; Goodnight, Moon; & The Hobbit!)

What are you waiting for?! Sara's baby will be here before we know it, and the giveaway closes when the baby arrives!

Enter the giveaway HERE!***

*** PLEASE, PLEASE include your EMAIL ADDRESS or a FIRST AND LAST NAME in your entry in order to insure that we can correctly identify the winners!

  3. What a fun idea! I love all the stats on the form :)

  4. I'm SO excited--I totally just entered--not that I can win--I'm donating some of these prizes. But...I love guessing!

  5. Becoming a mommy was the best thing that ever happened to me! Best wishes to you and your family. Congratulations. Off to guess.

  6. Congrats and good luck!!! I've still got a few months before mine is born!

  7. Congrats Sarah. So excited for you.

  8. Very fun to guess, but if my predictions on my own 2 babies are of any example, I'm not very good at it! Hang in there these last few weeks!

  9. Congratulations on the new baby!! My due date is theinverse of (July 31) But did you know all babies are born with the same colored eyes, and they don't necessarily settle on a color until as late as 1 year?
