Baby Girl Predictions

The most exciting thing about having a baby is the game of what is she going to look like. I have a fear of carrying a child for 9 months, going through the whole labor thing and then she looks like neither one of us. At least I want some sort of proof that all my hard work paid off by someone saying "she looks so much like her daddy" or "she looks so much like her mommy". I thought it would be fun to write a post about what Jason and I think she's going to look like and then come back and see how we were to the actual truth.

Mommy's Prediction
Eye Color: Blue
We both have blue eyes, so it'll be weird if she ends up with something else!
Hair Color: Blonde/White
I had very blonde hair growing up. Maybe it'll be a little darker when she's born though.
Skin Color: Fair and maybe blotchy
Just a guess really.
Bald or Full Head of Hair: Full Head of Hair
Maybe not long hair, but the ultrasound shows that she DOES have some hair!
Hair Type: Straight/Crazy
I have straight, weird hair and Jason has curly, thinker hair. So I think she'll just have crazy hair that sticks straight up everywhere.
Who Will She Look Like: Me
I'm only saying this because I secretly want a mini-me. Obviously she will probably look a little like both of us, but I have a feeling she might look a little bit more like me.
How much will she weigh: Somewhere in the 9 pounds
Jason was 9 lbs 3 oz and I was 9 lb 6 oz... Sara is basically already 2 pounds at only 25 1/2 weeks. So I have a feeling she'll be a big one. :/
How long will she be: 21 inches
Just a guess. I was a little more than 21 inches. Daddy and I are both tall, so I think she'll be pretty lengthy. 
Arrival: On Time
I was on time, and Jason is pretty punctual, so I think our little Sara will be pretty close to her due date for November 11th. :) Although I secretly hope for November 12, so her birthday will be 11-12-13!
Bad Traits She'll Probably Get:
1. Big Nose: Daddy has a larger nose.
2. Bad Skin: Mommy has wretched horrible skin. She'll probably have something wrong with hers too!
3. Different sized thumbs: Poor Mommy has been teased her whole life because of her different sized thumbs; so who knows! Maybe I'll have a little mini me with misshaped thumbs too!

Daddy's Prediction
Eye Color: One Green/One Blue
I am usually torn between these two colors as my favorite, and wouldn't it be cool for her to have one of each!  Pretty!  Realisticaly, I guess blue, Melissa and I both have a tint of blue.
Hair Color: Blonde
I had blonde hair and so did Melissa, plus it's very beautiful.
Skin Color: Mother of Pearl
Because we're both white.
Bald or Full Head of Hair: Full head of hair
At the 25 week ultrasound she had hair!  25 weeks!!
Hair Type: Thick and Wavy
If she is any thing like my Dad's side of the family-her hair will be thick, wavy or curly.
Who Will She Look Like: Melissa
If she stands a chance of ever getting married (I got real lucky with my silly face!)
How much will she weigh: 9 lbs 5 oz
I came into the world at 9 lbs 3 oz, and Melissa was 9 lbs 6 I simply found the mean and rounded up to the nearest tenth, dur dur dur.
How long will she be: 21 1/2"
We both arrived within 1/4" of each others length, so again I rounded up ;)
Arrival: 15 minutes early
As the military says...if you are not 15 minutes early then YOU ARE LATE!
Bad Traits She'll Probably Get:
1. My big nose: I have trouble drinking out of small diameter cups
2. Too analytical: sometimes I can not take a joke because I will over analyze 
3. Moody: She is a GIRL people!

And now I leave you with a few pictures of us and what sweet little Sara might look like in a few months. And we cheated and have a 4D picture to compare too!
