The Biggest Loser Gainer (a contest)

I've been so inspired by MckMama's bloginess and her many contests that I decided to do a little contest of my own. No, the contest is not to see which one of you has gained the most weight. Though that might be interesting. What I'm really wanting to know is how much my kids have gained. Bug and Sis are headed to their new pediatrician on Friday, and I have a feeling that the gap between their weights is going to close quickly. Do you care to take a stab at how much they weigh?

The winner will receive will win this adorable Twinkle Baby Bonding Doll.

Well not this one exactly. This one belongs to Ivy. Yours will be green and drool free.

To help you get started, here are their most recent weights:

Sy - 17 lbs, 15 oz. on February 17
Ivy - 7 lbs, 14 oz. on February 5

These are the ground rules. Only one guess per person and your guess can't have the same combination of weights as another person's guess. For example, if my mom guesses that Ivy weighs 28 pounds, 3 ounces, and you also think that Ivy has gained over 20 pounds in the last month and a half, then by all means, guess the same weight. Just make sure you don't guess the same as my mom for Sy's weight. Make sense? If someone doesn't follow the rules and two people end up guessing the correct weight for both kids, then the person who guessed first will be the winner. I'll turn off the comments at 5 p.m. on Friday and announce the winner sometime that night.

So, gimme your best guess. Whoever is closest to the ounce for both kids, will win their very own twinkle baby that they can give to their child, niece, nephew, cousin or mom. Hey, you could even send it to my mom, because with a guess like hers, the odds of her winning aren't good.

This contest is now closed.
