i'm taking bets!!!!!

here's a video to help you decide:

and another one in case you're still not sure!

before you pass go, we must share some history for our newer readers...

once upon a time,

there was a pork loin.

he sat, and sat, and sat upon his thrown.

he rolled and rolled, but would never scoot.

he would reach for toys and dig his knees,

but would never move an inch!

"come on little loin, it's such a cinch" his mommy & daddy would say.

"he's just too large to crawl and charge!" chanted many of the folk.

but dr. lynch hailed the loin for his cheeks and promised us he would crawl in weeks!

so we waited, and waited, and waited...

and waited.

bets were placed, cookies were waiting.

but all to no avail!

finally at 10 1/2 months the little loin commando crawled!

and here were are ready to walk,

and ready to try again!

so pick a date, any date for when you think he'll walk!

and remember, you can't win if you don't take a guess;-)

don't be a pest, just place your bets!

and you'll be the one who gets!

bets must be placed by Friday March 13th (oooo, scary!!!! Friday the 13th!)

still can't decide?

mommy's guess may or may NOT help;-)

nonetheless, i'm calling April 13th!

good luck to you and yours!

Okay, forget the little rhyming poem I sent you by e-mail. I hadn't seen your blog yet...all I had done was read the mass email...so i didn't know you had already gone all out, rhyme-wise.

Anyway, I ove it! And will be placing my bet soon. (I have to stew about it for a while first...using my complex math skills, of course). NOT

So I just imagined Brennan as a little old man at 80 years old walking around like that again w/ a walker (just not as cute). Um I want to say March 30th since that's my due date but I'm going to go with...April 10th. Just gonna give the little guy a little more time.

Hey Em! I haven't been on here forever! I'm so glad that Brennan is feeling better. Scary doctors visits are no fun. Also, I LOVE your new hair do. It looks great on you. I'm going to guess May 21. I know it's a long way off, but it's Zachy's B-day so I'm gonna go with it. Go B!

E: Could be a tricky bet. I propose that you do a Clinton thing and define "walk".

My bets are --- a one step walk followed by a face-plant by March 17 (on that Italian holiday);
a three step walk beginning with an unassisted start followed by a face-plant by March 28;
a reeling seven step walk followed by a right-handed roll to a stop by April 10.

after that / get him a drivers license

Cheers, D.M.

April 3rd is my very scientific guess! :)

Synergy Girl said...

Okay, I think April 2nd...cause you just can't guess April Fools Day!! I should really send my mom to you. My baby turned one, and she flew here on his birthday. That same day, he decided to walk!! Now about a week later, he not only walks, but he turns, and can stand himself up in the middle of the room....WHAT??!!! So, when the day hits....he will be OFF!!!

Can I play even though I don't know you? April 26.
