For those that weren't around or don't remember, back in June 2011 we kicked off a baby pool for our first ever Winchester Family Business baby.  Ardeospina, our Managing Editor and Motivational Poster Maven, announced she was pregnant with her first child and we ran with it!  So guess who's pregnant with child number two?  Guess who's kicking off another baby pool?  

The rules are pretty simple.  Guess the following:

- The birth date
- The birth time.  Please specify am or pm.
- In case we are in a tie breaking predicament, guess the weight of the child too.  

The sex is already known, but I'm not sure who Ardeospina shared that info with and we don't want unfair advantages!  

Once the baby is delivered, we'll announce the guesses that came the closest.  Then we will award the prizes.  I hear all of you, "There are prizes?"

First Place - The one who comes up with the closest guess by days and minutes (may be before or after the actual delivery day and time), gets an autographed picture of Misha Collins!  The photo is Castiel circa season four.  Considering Ardeospina is a huge Castiel fan, it only seems fitting.

Second Place - The one who comes up with the second closest guess by days and minutes (may be before or after the actual delivery day and time) earns a copy of the Supernatural novel "Fresh Meat" by Alice Henderson.  It takes place in season seven, and it's quite an action/adventure.

Third Place - The one who comes up with the third closest guess by days and minutes (may be before or after the actual delivery day and time), a certificate that basically thanks you for trying, but perhaps you need to take one of those Harry Potter Divination classes, because your tea leaves and crystal ball were just plain off.  Or, you could also have a Walking Dead bookmark that I snagged at Comic Con.  

We also have an incentive prize.  If anyone guesses within the hour of the birth, you will also win, on top of the above prizes, a Supernatural Season Eight DVD set (when available).  

Looking for hints?  The actual due date is roughly five weeks from now (give or take a few days).  So right now she's almost as large as a house.  :)  The Winchester Family Business Baby Pool ends as soon as we get an announcement out on the birth.  

You can enter as many guesses as you want, but only the first one entered counts.  The rest will just be busy work that you didn't need to do.  

Now that you know the rules, it's time to do the actual guessing.  Time to get out all those crazy methods that you're forced to use at baby showers and give us your predictions! 

Good luck everyone, but especially good luck to Ardeospina.  She's the one that will be doing all the hard work!

Every baby that I know that has been born this year has been at least a week after their due date closer to two (and Ardeospina makes #4) so I am going with:

September 12, 2013

Besides it is my great nephew's 1st birthday :-)

Congrats Miss Ardeospina!!!

Thanks for the guesses and the well wishes, everyone!

JosiePosie, this is actually my second child, so if you want to update your guess because of that, I think we can allow it.
