After three weeks of labor — or maybe it just seemed that way — our friends Abby and AJ welcomed their son Andy to life outside the womb this morning.
And that means Derrick is the winner of our Kuftic Baby Pool.
Cindy and Jaci both came up with Tuesday morning entries, but Derrick’s pick of 9:30 a.m. Tuesday was just
an hour a day off Andy’s 10:30 a.m. Wednesday arrival. For his correct pick, Derrick wins $22, or half of the pot to which you guys so generously contributed.
The other twenty-two bucks? That’ll be on its way to North Carolina shortly, perhaps to cover a portion of a case of diapers, which, I’m told, aren’t exactly cheap.
Or perhaps for a nice bottle of wine for Abby, because it sounds like she could use one in the very near future.
Thanks to all of you for playing along. Congratulations to Abby and AJ. And welcome to Andy, from all of us.
UPDATE: As Derrick pointed out on Twitter, I pretty clearly don’t have any idea what day it is. Fortunately, my confusion didn’t change the outcome.
UPDATED UPDATE: Derrick also said he’s giving Abby, AJ and Andy his share of the pot. Hey, that’s an entire case of diapers! Or TWO bottles of wine! Thanks, Derrick.
You guys are so sweet. It’s been a long journey but we are so excited for this little guy. We’ll have to invest Andy’s money into his own domain name or something. But probably more likely a few celebratory beers :)
