Baby Two Predictions

This comes a little late. Considering I'm due in a week and a half. But Jason and I were talking about what we thought Jordyn might look like, and I figured we should do one of these for her like we did for Sara. :) 
Mommy's Prediction
Eye Color: Blue
So far we're a family with blue eyes!
Hair Color: Blonde/White
Sara had weird, dark, reddish hair! I'm holding out for a bright blonde girl!
Skin Color: Pale and perfect
Just a guess really.
Bald or Full Head of Hair: Full Head of Hair
It threw off the ultrasound tech how much hair she had, so I'm curious to see how much is there! Maybe she'll have a weird head of hair where she's bald on top and has a crazy mane in the back! ha
Hair Type: I'm guessing straight.
Sara's was straight, that's the only evidence I have.
Who Will She Look Like: Jason
I have a theory that all babies must look like the Dada so that he knows it's his. muhahaha. It doesn't seem fair though, and I don't like comments about how much they look like daddy when I do all the work!!!
How much will she weigh: 8 lbs 4oz
I'm just wishful thinking I guess. I'm assuming she'll be about the same size if not bigger than her sista.
How long will she be: 21 3/4 inches
These are all based on our last ultrasound. The lady said she'd have very long legs.
Arrival: Early
I have this crazy feeling she'll be here early. Or again... maybe just wishful thinking.  
Traits She'll Probably Get:
1. Moodiness. Mama has been extra moody with this one. And from previous baby experiences.... we'll probably have a moody one.
2. Different Thumbs. Maybe this one will get the crazy thumbs from Mama.
3. Lots of chubby cheeks and belly. This she'll get because of her Mama too because I had such big cheeks and thighs when I was little. 

Daddy's Prediction
Eye Color: Blue
Sara has bright blue eyes, and I think Jordyn will have similar pretty eyes!
Hair Color: Blonde
I had blonde hair when I was a young lad, Melissa is a natural blonde, and Sara has beautiful blonde hair now.
Skin Color: White
Because we're both white, and ironically we don't get many sun rays out here in the central coast of California.
Bald or Full Head of Hair: Long full head of hair
Jordyn will have lots of hair, per the ultrasound tech.
Hair Type: Thick and Wavy
Like her Dad and Sara, her hair will be thick, wavy or curly.
Who Will She Look Like: Melissa
Like I said with Sara, "If she stands a chance of ever getting married."
How much will she weigh: 7 lbs 9 oz
I came into the world at 9 lbs 3 oz, Melissa was 9 lbs 6 oz, and Sara was 8 lbs 5 oz. Therefore, if my math is right, 7 lbs 9 oz.
How long will she be: 21 1/2"
All three of us arrived within 1/4" of each others length, so again I rounded up ;)
Arrival: Due date, June 5th
She is gonna be a due date baby, because she is perfect timing for our family ;)
Traits She'll Probably Get:
1. A love for Mickey Mouse: Since being a Dad, I have come to the conclusion that all kids love Mickey!
2. A book lover: I hope she likes books as much as Sara, that makes us happy.
3. Moody: She is a GIRL people!

And now I leave you with a few pictures of us and what sweet little Jordyn might look like in a few months.

Picture Time

We made it to the point of maternity pictures. To me, it's well worth the money to get some special and amazing shots of this moment in our life. This time we decided to do it on the beach... and it turns out, the beach was just FULL of gnats! BLEH. So despite the hundreds of gnats flying on us, going in our eyes and noses... our photographer managed to make us look pretty good. It was also fun this time to have Sara around to be in our pictures. She was super cute. So here they are!
