A Baby Guessing Game, Thank You, and The Two Winners of our Last Giveaway

 No, I didn't have our baby yet, although I do think she will be arriving soon. 
This is a photo of Lillie when she was about two weeks old. This is a wordy post and I wanted to have at least one photo and I have been having a lot of fun looking through Lillie's baby pictures so I thought I would include one of her. I didn't have a good camera then (well actually I did, it just wasn't digital so I never used it) so most of my baby photos of Lillie aren't very good quality. 

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to have a little guessing game on here. We did this with our immediate family a few weeks before Lillie was born and as we are all terribly competitive it was a lot of fun. I actually can't remember who won, though. Jamie, maybe? I am sure whoever it was will be sure to remind me as soon as this post goes up.

If you want to enter just make a guess as to when you think she will arrive and how much she will weigh and leave it in the comments section at the bottom of this post.  

Whoever is closest will get their choice of screenprinted item. If a male wins I will come up with another prize. I know Jason doesn't exactly want to win a Fairyland Tank or a Je T'aime Pillow. And yes, family can enter this contest seeing how noone, including myself has any idea when she actually will arrive and how much she will weigh.

To level the playing field I will give you all of the basic information:

1).  My actual due date is May 2nd.

2).  Lillie was born two weeks early but that isn't really something we can necessarily base our guesses on because she arrived thanks to a car accident where we hit a deer going about 70 miles an hour on the highway.  My dad promptly nicknamed her Deer Lillie and when we opened our shop a few months after she was born we decided to change the spelling to Dear Lillie so people wouldn't think we couldn't spell. (Although if you read most of my blog posts you probably already think that - haha! I am always writing them as fast as possible either during naptime or in the wee hours of the morning and when I reread them the next day am often appalled at all of my typos).

3) Lillie weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces.

Also, we are still struggling with a name! We thought we had it figured out for a few days but are starting to change our minds again so if anyone has any great name ideas please feel free to add them in your comment. We would prefer something old-fashioned, like Lillian do not want it to be as common as Lillian.  I am also open to whimsical names as well (although Jon is not as big a fan) =). Basically the main criteria for what we are looking for is that it is not a popular name and that it goes nicely with Lillian. We do have a top three we are considering right now but aren't sure if we will go with one of them or not.

On another note, I really want to thank you all for making Monday such an exciting day for us! 

I had hoped to sell somewhere between 20 and 40 items but wasn't really sure that we would hit that number. Well, by the middle of the afternoon we had already sold over 100 items and had gotten over 400 new e-mails! It was terribly exciting but also really stressful, especially with Lillie being sick. Thank goodness my mom was here or I think I may have had a meltdown.  Needless to say I ended up closing up our shop earlier than planned because I wasn't sure if we would be able to handle processing any more orders than that. I wanted to thank you all so much and to say sorry to those of you that came on to purchase something Monday evening only to find our shop already closed. Also, if you sent us an e-mail or convo I will try to get back to you, but to be honest I am not sure I will be able to get back to everyone. I am going to do my best but it may take quite a while.

If you did order something here is the update: all of the screenprinted items have been packaged (thanks to two really late nights and my mom helping me sew in the labels and my wonderful helper, Alex, helping package up orders). A bunch of them have already shipped out and my goal is to have all of the screenprinted items shipped by tomorrow. If you ordered a screenprinted item and have not received an e-mail with a tracking number by tomorrow please feel free to contact us. Seeing how my mom was down here helping me and my sister, Dana, will be out of town this weekend the tutus and knit hats have a different timeline.

Also, as we knew we were closing up until August I didn't bother to order more hang tags (the printed tags that are pinned onto the sewn-in labels on each item). I had about 50-60 and figured that would more than cover Monday's sales. Obviously it didn't, so the first 50 or 60 orders have them but the remaining orders do not. Just thought I would let you all know in case you are wondering where your hang tag is. I figured you all would probably rather have your order shipped out as soon as possible instead of waiting another week to two weeks for me to get more hang tags in. They will still be packaged the same as always with the Dear Lillie sewn-in label, tissue paper, Dear Lillie sticker, ribbon and card, they will just be missing the hang tag on some of them.

Also, if you noticed a change in handwriting on the cards that is because Alex has been helping me the past few weeks with some them and with this batch of orders I wrote some, my mom wrote some and Alex wrote some.

So again, I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you! 
You all are the most wonderful customers and we truly appreciate it!

And now for the two winners of our last giveaway. 

 Congratulations to Martina for winning the two silhouette pillows!

And congratulations to Kim of Savvy Southern Style for winning the photo editing prize!

And don't forget if you want to enter this next contest 
just leave a comment with the your guess for 
You don't have to have a blog to enter, either. If you aren't a blogger, just enter a comment and then where it says "comment as" scroll down near the bottom and click on anonymous. However, if you do that, make sure to leave your e-mail address or if you are family some identifying information so we can confirm that you are the winner. If we draw the name of someone who doesn't leave any identifying information we will simply draw a new name.

If there are multiple winners as long as there aren't too many of them I will give a prize to each person. If there are quite a few winners then I will just give it to the first three.

As soon as I get all of these packages out I plan on starting on e-mails, finishing up some Easter projects, and doing a tutorial on the hanging branch that I am going to add to the nursery so hopefully I will have some of those posts ready to go in the next few days!

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks again for being such amazing customers!

    April 18, 6 pounds 10 ounces

    Baby girl Holmes better not arrive this weekend!!!

  25. My middle sons birthday is May 1 so I'm going to go with that and lets go with 7 lbs 11 oz for the weight.

    I have 3 boys but some of my favorite girls' names are Charlotte, Victoria, Amelia, Alice, Jane, and Eloise. I have others but those seem to fit in your category best.

    Good luck to you all and congratulations!


  26. Hi Jennifer! My guess is a birth date of 4/26 and weight of 7 lbs & 6 Oz. For names I like Sadie, Amelia & Lucy.

  27. I always liked the name Samantha. You can call her Sam...or she can have the long formal version. Guessing 8 lbs 1 oz and born on May 4th.

  28. May 3 - 7 lbs. 1 oz.
    Name: Madeline Hope

  29. May 1
    7 lbs. 4 oz.
    I love the name Emilia ( that is what I always called my sister Emily) and I LOVE Kate as a middle name for a girl.
    So happy for your growing family!

  30. Hey girl, my guess is 4/17 7lbs 6oz.

    For names, I like old fashioned names too, (hence my Halle Mae & Ella Grace)

    others I love:

  31. I am going to go with May 10th - Noah's B-day - he's as sweet as can be so that's a good day! Weight - 7 lbs. 4 oz. - Name I would have used if I had a girl - Holland. Oh - I made some moss letters and referenced you on my post as the go to girl for instructions. They are so fun!

  32. maybe i'm partial...but what about Lainey or Lane? I also LOVE Georgia and Merritt.

  33. I am hoping for another to share my birthday! April 23 and weighing in at 7 lbs. We almost used the name Madeline instead of Hannah. Still love both!

  34. April 30, 7 lbs. 4 oz
    Annabel Rose is another fav of mine! (We are naming our daughter Alexis, I am due June 3)

  35. I love your blog!
    my guess - May 2 - 7lbs 8oz.
    name - Meredith

  36. Hi Jennifer ~ Fun baby guessing game :) My guess is April 29th, 7lbs 4oz... I love the name Olivia (although it's getting more common) and Charlotte Mae... good luck to you!

  37. Hmm..

    April 22. She will be 7lbs 6oz. I love the name Ella Grace, mentioned above.

    Wishing you the best of luck!

  38. April 28 at 7 lbs. 3 oz.

    My daughter's name is Charlotte Anne and I love it because it is so classic and one that you do not hear all that often. The funny thing is that everyone assumes she was born in Charlotte instead of Raleigh!

  39. Lillie is one of the most beautiful two week old babies I've ever seen! And she is still just as beautiful! What an exciting game... :) My guess is April 23 (got engaged that day) and a weight of 7lbs., 8oz.

  40. My friend just named her baby Amelie (ah-ma-lee) I think it's so cute! It's a french name (like the movie)

    my guess is April 29th, 7lbs 2 oz (:

    So excited for you!

  41. Coach (J.R.)'s guess:

    April 24th, 7 pounds 10 ounces

  42. My guess is April 22nd 6lbs and 8oz


  43. Grammy's guess:

    April 30th, 7 pounds 5 ounces

    Charlotte Grace

  44. I love classic names but my last name is so, so common, so I don't want to pick anything too popular, and I consider anything in the top 100 too popular given our last name. So I am always on the look out for a good, old-fashioned name that is not popular. So my girl name is Suzanne McKinley. I think three syllable middle names work best with Suzanne, Suzanne Elizabeth is also pretty. I think Suzanne would work splendidly with Lillian/Lillie because both are classic and vintage, and both have cute nicknames-Lil, Lillie, Suz, Suzie, etc.! Suzanne is a familiar name, but it has not been even in the top 1,000 names in the last 10 years according to the Social Security Administration!

    My guess is my brother's birthday, May 24, and my birth weight guess is 7 lbs. 7 oz. I think that might be the biggest guess so far, I just didn't want to pick something someone else had picked and I didn't see that one :)

  45. Hi Jennifer! I'm guessing April 21st, 7lbs., 7oz. I like the names Gracie, Sadie, Evelyn, Ana and Esme :)

  46. I'm am so excited for you I can hardly stand it!
    Names: blaire, Blaine, emmerson, amberly, eek, I can't think right now!
    April 18th 7 lbs 4oz

  47. Well, I'll go with April 18th because that is my sister's birthday, and how about 7 lb 8 oz. As for a name...well Allison, or Suzanne--which I now just realized a previous poster mentioned. Or, why not April? :)
    At any rate, have fun these next several weeks...

  48. Hi Jennifer - I'm guessing May 3rd, 7lbs., 8 ozs. I like Emma, Hannah, Matilda and Ruby.

  49. I'm going to guess April 21st (just cause that's my baby's b-day!) ;)

    andddd 7 lbs. 3 oz.

    what about Evan? or Ever? or Everly?

    I sense a pattern haha

  50. No guesses - but wishes for a happy, healthy delivery!

    Name suggestions: (because I LOVE names)

  51. April 28th, 8lbs 1oz. What about the names Lydia, Layla, or Irene?

  52. May 2nd (why not the due date?)
    8lbs, 2ozs
    Names...Ada, Anna, Celeste, Julia, Adeline, Josephine, Claire or Clara

  53. We have a 4month old named Lily Grace. Her older sister is Scarlett Annabelle.

    My guess is April 29th, 7pound 6oz.

    My email address is

  54. One more name, I just thought of it Frances and call her Franny. I just love baby girl names since I had two boys. Best wishes and prayers for a healthy and easy delivery!

  55. Meredith's guess:
    April 24, 6 lbs 9 oz

  56. Oh how exciting! I guessed my granddaughter's weight dead on. So I'm going with her birth date and wt. April 27 7 pound 11 oz.
    For names, Iris, Mamie, Lela, Lila, Sadie, Eliza, Pearl

  57. My guess is April 29th and 7 pounds 4oz. Here are a few names...Olivette-Liv for short, Scarlett, Addison or Ava !!


  58. I'm going to guess 4/28 and 7lbs 11 oz

  59. I think maybe.....
    May 3, 6lbs. 7oz.
    I love, love, love, Blythe and Vivian. Congratulations!!

  60. Jennifer, although i'm bummed i didn't win the pillows... i feel like i'm a winner for ordering the fairyland flowy tank before you closed up shop! i can't WAIT to wear it and tell everyone where i ordered it from.

    you really are such a doll. i'm hoping you don't lose my "design" email in with all of your 400 emails! ;) lol. so excited you had such success on your last day before the break. i'm also still wondering where your master headboard is from if ya have a second to mention it. :)

    my guess for the beautiful baby you have on the way is April 26th and 6lb. 14oz.

    what about Naomi as the name? it's my middle name, not commmonly used/heard and everyone who hears it, loves it. lucky for me. :)

    whatever you choose will be just as lovely as your new baby.

  61. My guess is April 24 (Easter) weight 7 pounds even. Name suggestion is Finley (I have heard it used for a boy and a girl), it's unique and Lillie would go great with Finlie (changed the spelling).

  62. April 27 7lbs 10oz
    I like the name Maci Lynn

  63. Tarragon Custard Holmes. 8 pounds, 2 ounces. March 30, 10:45 PM.

    It goes perfectly with her sister Lily (my other favorite name)

  65. Let's say April 26, 6lbs. 2 oz.

    I love Lillie's name :) Let's say Adrienne Philippa. hmmm Adrippa doesn't sound so good - haha.

  66. no 18 is Deloris

  67. May 1, 2011...that is May day. 7 pounds 6 ounces. I've always liked the name Sophie.

    Lillie's baby photo is so precious. Her eyes are so angelic.

  68. Hello. My second daughter was born ten days early. I will venture a guess of April 22nd for the birth and the weight as 8 lbs 1 oz. I worked with someone once who was very intelligent and warm--her name was Alayne. Faith, Marilyn, Katherine, Alexis, or Grace are timeless names.

  69. Okay, my guess is April 28th, 7lb 5oz
    My daughter is named Jocelyn, which we love - and is a bit old fashioned. Although Jocelyn and Lillian have the same ending, so that doesnt really work. I also love the name Olive. I have a great great grandma that was named that, and I adore it! Good luck though! Picking a name is the hardest part for me:)

  70. Since your due date is close to my daughter's birthday...
    May 6, 7 lb 2 oz

    And her name (and my suggestion to you) is Olivia.
    Some of my niece's names that are old-fashioned are Sophie and Naomi.

    Good luck!

  71. Hi, my guess is April 27th and 7bls 12oz and I love the name Elizabeth and my great niece is name Olivia love it too!


  72. One more name :-) Rose. You have the verse that mentions that all of Solomon's splendor could not rival a lily so I thought Rose for Rose of Sharon. Lillie and Rosie--too cute.

  73. I second KC - Mae! I saw the cutest girl at the airport once with "Mae" on her little suitcase and have been smitten ever since.
    April 28, 6 lbs. 12 oz.
    Wishing you a happy & comfortable last few weeks of your pregnancy! Enjoy this special time.

  74. My daughter Hannah and I guess the new babies arrival date will be on April 29th. We think she will weigh 7 pounds 6 oz. We love the name Scarlett Jane!!
    We wish you lots of good luck and "sleep" for your family!
    Kathleen and Hannah

  75. April 16th
    6 pounds 9 ounces

    I love the "old school" baby names! I have a couple in mind...Lola (my favorite of course, have one for myself), Lorelie, and Olphelia (my hubby hates that name, but I LOVE it, but then again, I love Shakespeare)!

    Whatever name you choose, I am sure it will be beautiful! Can't wait to find out...but not until the 16th :)

  76. For a name: Mary Scott?
    Birthday: April 29th
    Lbs: 7.5 :)

    Sending well wishes your way!

  77. My guess is April 29th weighing in at 7lbs 4 oz
    Some of my favorite girls names are: Caroline, Rebecca, Josephine, Mavis, Campbell, Audrianna and of course Tess or Tessa. Good Luck! My email is

  78. Hmmm... I am guessing April 11 and 7 lbs 3oz.

  79. I got a giggle from all you guys. LOVE your fam. I say April 25th. My Mom's B-day. 7 pounds 13oz.

    I LOVE Anelia or Sylvia. HUGS! I will pray for a safe and heathy baby. =)

  80. What an exciting time! My guess is April 28, 7#s, 7 oz.

    Lillie is such a "pretty" feminine name... I like Ellanora (you could call her Ella or Nora or Ellanora) :)

    I also think Addaline, and Ada Claire or Ada Kathryn are pretty... and Libby, too.

    Enjoy the coming weeks and sweet Lillie, too!

    Take care.

  81. no guess but my favorites names are:
    parker, mia, caroline, scout, vivian, scarlett

  82. My second daughter came on her exact due date, even though her older sister was a week early. So I'll say May 2nd, and 7lbs 9 ounces!

    For baby name ideas, I am really liking the name Adelaide these days, or I thought Evelyn would rhyme with Lillian. Also Brieanne, Simone, and of course Alannah and Avila!

    Best wishes, I cannot wait to see the first pics of your new baby girl! She is so lucky to have such a wonderful family and to come home to such a gorgeous bedroom.

  83. I am horrible at guessing babies weights...but I'm going to guess 7 lbs 4 oz and arriving on April 28th. One of the partners in my firm has 2 daughters, 1 named Lillie and the other Anna Rose. I really like the name Annabelle Rose. :) Wishing you all the very best, hope Lillie is feeling back to her sweet self!

  84. My little girl's name is Eliana Grace and I just adore it! Most people do (in fact, we have had several friends/acquaintances name their own children Eliana!). Eliana is Hebrew for "Answered Prayer". So many nicknames can come out of Eliana (Elle, Ellie, Ella). If I have a second girl, we will name her Arabella Faith. Arabella also means answered prayer in Latin.

  85. I think she will come on Easter, April 24th and weigh 7 lbs. 3 1/2 oz.

    I am partial to the name Jemma! It is very unique and it is a very old name that comes from St. Gemma in Italy. I also love Ruby. I just think it is sweet!

    I am so excited about my things I ordered! I know my girlfriend from England will love the Jane Austen as she lives down the road from Jane Austen's home! I can't wait to take pictures of Jemma's new shirt on her!
    I hope you get more racer back A-line tanks! I have my eye on that one for myself! Thanks for the note back about sizes! You are a doll!

    Congrats to the winners especially my friend Kim! Even though I am completely jealous!

  86. Thanks for letting your blog friends play this game.

    I also have absolutely no luck at guessing birthdates or weights but I will throw April 22nd in the pot with a weight of 6 lbs 12 oz.

    Best wishes to you, your family and that precious new little baby!

    Andrea (

  114. My guess April 13th, 7lbs 4oz

    Love the names:


  115. Im going to say
    april 4th & her weight... 6lb 8oz

    I'l sugest a name too, becoz sat here thinking about it MARGARETTE popped into my head & lily & maggie sounds cute together!!

    Hapy day's x x

  116. Hmmm...April 25th, 7lbs 7oz

    How about Ava, Annabelle, Mallory...

  117. May 1st............7 pounds 8 ounces

  118. I want to say April 21st, because that's my birthday, but I think it's going to be May 5th: Cinco de Mayo.
    I will guess she will be 7 lbs 9 oz.
    I'm surprised you aren't planning to name her Audrey! A sweet name, and right down your alley. I don't know your last name, and some names just don't go with some last names. . . with my limited info, I would suggest Shelby, Mason, Carson, Avril (April in French, as you're probably aware--what a great name for an April baby), Alicia, Shannon, Nicolette, Meredith (and call her Mares or Maresy. Love that!), Avery, Morgan . . . I could keep going, but I will spare you. ;)

  119. April 29th (Royal Wedding Day!), 7lbs 5oz

    Names...Adelaide, Sadie, Lucy/Lucie (Lucille, Lucianna), Celia, Emmaline

  120. I love my daughters name which is Cailin Leigh, Cailin is pronounced Kaylin and is of Gaelic origin and means girl.
    I'm guessing May 4th and 7lbs 1oz

  121. April 30th.
    7 lbs. 3 oz.

    Love the name Nola. Uncommon too so it could be original just for her. :)

  122. My guess is April 28th and weighing in at 7lbs 11oz. Well you know I am a fan of Harlow but I also really loved Everleigh. Wishing you all the best when the time does come and I can't wait to see pictures. Hugs!

  123. I would love to say April 15th, my bday, however i will go with apr 25th and i will say 7lbs 8oz. As for names, i love annabelle, libby (elizabeth), ella, emma, chloe, phoebe....but of course i named my daughter Cooper! So, your brother wasnt too far off with boys names for girls! Her middle name is Mattison, family name that i love but didnt flow well w Jackson.:) good luck!

  124. I love Annabelle as a name soo very much and would love to use it, but the little girl next door has the same name!
    Baby X will be born April 17th, weighing 6pds 11oz.

    GOOD LUCK! how exciting...can't wait for my tank to arrive soon! I am putting it in my Easter basket seeing as moms always make everyone else's. I wanted something special in mine! :))

  125. I will go with your due date May 2nd (just because my son was born on his actual due date) I will also go with 6 pounds 8 ounces. As far as names, how about Avery Belle? Or you could name her after me, Addy. :) It is a girl? right?

  126. My guess is May 7th, 7lbs. 5 oz.
    I love the names Mallory, Paige, Chelsea, and Blair. ♥

  127. I love the names Madelyn, Lucy & Jeannine!!
    Birthday-May 5th
    Weight-7 lbs. 4 oz.

    Hope you have an easy delivery!

  128. Auntie Mara's guess:

    Day: April 16th (even though I want her to be born on my b-day..)
    Weight: 7lbs 2oz

    Names: Elinor - from Jane Austen's Sense & Sensibility I also like Georgia.

  129. Well, let's see...
    Once I met a girl named Jacinta and I think that is unique and pretty name. I think I would use Cinta as a nickname name. I think Jael (said J L)would work well as a middle name.
    The other name I really love, I want name my daughter this someday, is Katrina Belle. I would call her Rena for short because my Grammy's name is Rena.
    As for a date and size I guess I'll just go with April 30th, 7lbs 6oz.

  130. This post is just too much fun!

    I'm guessing the day after Easter, April 25th weighing 6 lbs 14 oz.

    As far as names...I'm due to have another girl on May 19th, scheduled c-sec, and I know how hard it is picking out names. We chose Laila Gianna for our first and our baby girl on the way will be Emelia June, but will be calling her Emmie.

    I want to hear some of your options you have had in mind...

    I like Abigail Grace, Sophie, Emerson

  131. Uncle Matt's Guess:
    May 3rd, 7 lbs 0 oz

  132. I am guessing:
    Baby will be born April 26, 2011
    Weight will be 6lbs 14oz
    And name?? Grace something!! Holmes

  133. I would like to guess the due date of April 23 for no particular reason at all. Weight 6lbs. 8 oz.- because you are running around this time chasing a 2 year old...My name choices, not very old fashioned but I heard one time of a little girl named Lucibelle. She was cute so i always thought it was cute. I have two daughters, both have middle names after my grandmother and great grandmother, Alice and Clementine. So cute...

  134. I'm new to your blog, but I love it already! I'm going to guess May 5 (easy birthday to remember -5/5/11 :) Weight: 7 lb 9 oz. My girls are named Katherine ("Kate") and Margaret ("Maggie"). Neither of which were popular then, but are now- kind of a bummer. If we had another girl, I would have liked to have named her Elizabeth Jane and called her either Eliza or Eliza Jane. I also like Emilyn, Meg, Frances/Frannie, Hadley, and Joy. (

  135. I like the name Leighton--I taught a cute little girl with that name and thought it was unique and sweet.
    April 26
    7 pounds 9 ounces
    we are expecting baby three at the end of august and haven't talked one bit about names, so reading these comments is helpful!

  136. I love names! Lillian Annabel is such a pretty name...and what a gorgeous baby she was...still is! For some more name suggestions, how about Helena, Myla, Gabryella and call her Ella.
    My guess is May 1 7 lbs 1 oz

  137. i recently came across your lovely blog! and what a special time it is in your little corner of the world! so many congrats on your baby girl due so very soon...and even more congrats on sisters! i have one and i know how DEAR that relationship is!

    just a few names to add to the mix...
    -ellery {heard this today and hadn't heard it in so long}

  138. Oooo...thought of another one...and this one made me giggle a little. How about Catherine but you can call her Callie (daughter has a friend w this name and nickname) then you will have a Callie, Lillie...get it? Calla Lily?! Just a thought :)

  139. I love naming baby girls. I was lucky enough to have three of my own to name. I have always loved Emma and Violet although I did just see someone who name their baby Beatrix. I thought that was cute too.
    I think she will be born on April 29 weighing in a 8lb.1oz. My babies got gradually bigger.
    I can't wait to see her picture!

  140. Congrats on your success and the coming baby. What an exciting time for you!! OK, I'm going to guess May 1, 7lbs 7 oz.

    I always loved the name Eleanor, but had two boys, so I never got to use it.

  141. LOL...of course, Marian is a good name, too. :)

  142. I love your blog, congratulations to you all on the sale and the baby!
    My vote is: May 1, 7lb 7oz
    I love the name Ruby, we have an Izzy (Izabella) and Ellie (Elliana), Audrey, Mae, Macy or Mia.
    Blessings to you all, such an exciting time!

    Vicki Chiha

  152. Oh my goodness! Thank you all so much for all of these wonderful names! It has been so incredibly fun reading them all. Probably close to 75% of them are names we have talked about at some point over these last 8 months so you all definitely understood what we were looking for. Two of our top three names have been suggested here as well as both of the middle names we are considering. And we've even added one of the names to our list thanks to you all. If you have any other ideas keep them coming as we still haven't decided yet and it is looking like she may be coming early so we may need to make a decision soon!

  153. April 29, 2011 7lbs.3oz. Some name suggestions-Anastasia,April,Nadine,Aedine,Priscilla,Violet,
    Fiona,Marina,Arneal,Dorian,Doria,Audra,Darla,Alana-All the best to you and your family!!

  154. I am new to your blog, but I really enjoy reading it. You are SO talented! I will guess May 23, 7 lbs. 5 oz. Melissa Wagner --

  155. Congrats! My guess is May 4, 2011 7 lbs. 4 oz.

    My daughter's name is Amelia Josephine and we call her Mia.

    We went into the delivery room with 4-5 names and we pretty much knew right away that Amelia just fit her. I think it's hard to know for sure until you meet them.

  156. Okay, one more suggestion. Mirena (like Marina)

  157. Date: April 23
    Weight: 7lbs 8 oz

    Name: Margaux/Margot

    I have 4 boys so no girl's names for me. My last child, I had the girl name Holly Rose chosen for a girl.

  158. I'm going to echo all the others who suggested Charlotte. If I were going to have another baby (and it was a girl) I would want to name her Charlotte. LOVE IT!

  159. Adore your blog. My daughter turned me on to it. I think you will go to your due date, May 2, because I am having surgery that day and it would be nice to think that someone was going to the hospital for a great reason. I think this baby will be bigger than Lillie for having gone term so, I'm guessing 7lb. 8 oz. minimum. Finally, here are some lovely names that belong to little girls i adore. My granddaughter is Grace Anne and my niece's daughter is Sydney Pearl. Feel free to use any part of either name. Best wishes for an easy delivery and another gorgeous child ... because your Lillie is the most gorgeous child I've ever seen (well, maybe after my own Amanda. )

  160. I think she will weigh 7.4 oz and arrive 4-28-11. I think Claire, Jennifer, Laura, or Emma would be a nice name. Best of luck to you.

  161. I guess April 29th. 7 lbs 3 oz.
    lemontart5kb at gmail dot com

  162. My guess is April 28, 7 lbs 6 oz.
    Name: Maryn Grace

  163. April 23rd
    7 pounds 13 oz (my youngest daughter's birth weight)
    Name: Isabella

  164. I'm going to guess April 27th (my daughter's birthday) and for weight I will say 7lbs 5 ozs.

  165. I say she will be born April 15,2011 at 12:45am 7lbs 8.5oz..I think you should name her Lucee Lou. or Zoey Ann. Lisa

  166. May 3rd, 6 lbs. 3 oz.

  167. april 31
    7 lbs. 4 0z.
    my grandmas name is charlotte. 2 family members have used her name. they have the nick names, or shortened names of sharley and the other is lottie. email

  168. I love your blog .. i have a six year old Lily and still LOVE this name ... Im guessing May 9th and 8lbs 4 ounces also love the names : Mae, Ria and Rose .. Good luck on your delivery such an exciting time

  169. this is my first visit to your gorgeous blog, Jennifer, and i think it was meant to be (more on that in a sec). i love a guessing challenge:

    May 1st - 6 pounds, 14 oz.

    here's the crazy part: i'm a freelance writer for lots of family magazines and just wrote a piece on choosing a name! It hasn't gone to print yet, but you can find it here

    best to you, and hope you'll visit me at my blog!


  170. this is my first visit also to your lovely blog, but I can never resist a name suggesting opportunity! Some old-fashioned names: May, Sophy, Alice, Clara, Evangeline, India, Jessamy, Sarai, Laurel, Samantha. Best wishes for your delivery whatever day it comes.

  171. My daughter was born May 4th so I have to go with that guess and her name is Isabella Jahan and I'll go with a weight of 7lbs 6oz. Good luck!

  172. i think that since you have a lillie already, you need a violet or of the prettiest names i can remember hearing was grace hyacinth...

    other flower/nature names i like are

    my guess for weight is 7lbs 3 oz and she's coming may 3rd...

    i hope the rest of the pregnancy goes smoothly for you

    hugs, cindy

  173. I am loving all of these!

    And Amanda - this will be super short but I know you are waiting on the master headboard question. I got it off a totally random site online. Can't even remember the name of it. I don't think this was the exact site but it was something like this: I got mine in a white duck fabric and really like it. We actually went ahead and bought it with the frame because our old one wouldn't have been compatible. Hope that helps a little!

  174. Wow - I have read some great names here! By far, the hardest part of pre-baby. I love old names and our daughter's name was derived from two old family names. Callie (heard plenty) Chamblain (my favorite - pronounced Sham-blan).

    As far as guessing, I'm typically no good..but I'll give it a shot - April 27 6lbs 11 oz Can't wait to hear!

  175. My guess is April 24th and 7lbs 4oz. Also, I LOVE the name Georgia! So very pretty and would go great with Lillie! For the middle name some thoughts are Georgia James, Georgia Caroline, Georgia Belle, Georgia Rae. I hope that you have a safe delivery and healthy beautiful baby girl! Best of luck and enjoy this wonderful time with your family!

  176. My guess is April 30th, 8 lbs. And, for a name, we just named our sweet precious girl Belisse. It's pronounced like Bay-lease. It is a French version of Bella meaning "beautiful". Our daughter's middle name is Liliana, so I think it would go well with your little Lillie.

  177. I think your little princess will be born on April 18th and she will weigh 7 lbs, 14 oz. I was blessed with two amazing sons, so I never had a chance to use my favorite girl names:

    Evelyn (Evie for short)

    Best of luck to you and your beautiful family!

    :)Renée W

  178. We just named our daughter Delaney. I think Lillie and Laney sound like precious sister names!

    Best of luck to you and your new arrival.

  179. Just found you through Poppies at Play...LOVE your blog! Just wanted to tell you my favorite girls name (which happens to be my daughters :)

    Aliza, most people spell it Eliza but the A just looks so much prettier!

  180. My guess is April 29th, 6 lbs 11 oz.

    Not sure on a name, my little girl Madilyn which is pretty common and my niece name Milla.

    Thanks for fungame,

  181. My guess would be April 22nd and weight, 7lbs. This must be such an exciting time to be closer to seeing your baby.



  183. YOU CAN ALSO SPELL IT GRETEL (makes me think of the little girl in sound of music,who by the way has a likeness to your lillie.

  184. April 22, 7lbs 2 oz.
    I am new to your blog! I just had a baby girl, and named her Alexis (Lexi). Our other top names were Lucia, Ella, and Sasha. I especially think Lucia would be perfect! Cute nickname too...Lucy.

  185. So many great names! I had Anna and Violet on my list when I was pregnant, then I had a boy.
    My guess: April 20th, 7lbs, 3 oz! :)
    LOVE your blog!

  186. Our due dates aren't far apart and we are also struggling to find a name. I'll give you some of the names I love and that my husband hates....perhaps you'll have better luck with them. I like Faye and Nora. Correction. I LOVE those names! My guess for your due date is: April 31st at 6 lb, 10 oz. Good luck to you. I'm just getting started on my nursery so I gotta run!

  187. I have enjoyed your blog so much and gotten many ideas from it. My guess for your little one is April 28th, 7lbs 8 oz. I've always liked the name Beatrice & Simone
    Amanda, Katy TX

  188. For weight I guess 6 lb 13 oz. For a name, I too like the name Merritt, but what about Louisa (nickname Luci) and Georgia Grace (nickname Gigi).

  189. I love your blog. I have two girls- Mary Miles (double name) and Caroline. Our third child is a son but if he had been a girl, he would have been Eliza, short for Elizabeth. I have heard a bunch of cute girls names recently: Hollis, Ellison, Maggie/Margret, Katherine, Garner, Lolly, Carlisle, Annie, Price, Brooks, Campbell, Blakely, Weatherly, and Langely. Choosing a name is so much fun!

  190. My guess would be April 29, weighing 7 lbs 11 oz. How about Claire?

  191. I love Caitlin...Cait for short....Lillian and Caitlin/ Lilly and Cait???
    7 lb 1 oz

  192. I love naming babies! Our runner up name for our daughter was Ameilia Honor. I also love old-fashioned names so I could list serveral dozen, but a few of my favs are Franchescia, Harper, Charlotte, Genevieve, Gwenyth, Sylvia and Sterling.
    My Guess: May 4th 7lbs 11oz. Best wishes!

  193. Hi, just found your blog-love it!! My son just named his daughter Nellie Mae after my mother and I just love it-congradulations!

  194. I think the name Tessa or Tess sounnds lovely with Lilly...

  195. My favorite name for a girl was my grandmother's middle name: Ellington. Her full name was Effie Ellington Lee. I always said that if I had a little girl that I would name her Ellington Lee or Leigh. I never did, so I named my shop Ellie Lee. I still think that Ellington is a lovely name...Lillian and Ellington...Lillie and Ellie.
    Whatever you name her, she will be a lovely and amazing blessing. ♥ Vicki
