"Eli's Coming...", but when !?! (A little contest)

Within the 'G Family' tradition, Eli has his own song (see footnote). Yes, for those of you that decide to name your children after famous songs or movies, you will discover this fact shortly after the announcement of his/her name. While, it is not a widely known song, there are enough relatives, coworkers, and acquaintances that love to serenade me with Three Dog Night's song "Elis Comin", which goes a little something like this...."Eli's comin', hide your heard, girl...Eli's comin', hide your heart, girl...." (I think you get the point). Ironically, I can't think of a more appropriate time for this song to be relevant in his life.

So, with that being said...I want to hear when you think "Eli's comin'?" As of today, I am officially considered 'full term', at 37 weeks. If all goes according to schedule Eli should be making his debut on February 21st. However, Eli might decide to have plans of his own and disregard when the doctors are suggesting he come out (I don't know if he much into following rules at this point).

I would love hear what you think! Place a comment on this post, and put in the comment the date that you think he will be born, time, weight, and length. The winner will receive a little something from me (probably in the form of a gift card). Hopefully this doesn't seem like an exploitation of my child's birth...ha ha. However, I certainly have no idea when to expect the little am trying to see who of my friends and family does! I also guessed that if I threw an incentive out there I might get more responses. :)

(How to leave a comment: Just two lines under the title of this post there will be a line that says 'labels'. Next to the labels is the word 'comment' and a number highlighted in teal. Click on that number, and it should give you the option to leave a comment.)

Footnote: Regarding my 'G Family Tradition' comment in the beginning, Keith and I each have a song or movie with our names as the title. I am fortunate enough to have a song entitled 'Lee' sang by the always clever and hilarious Jack Black band Tenacious D. Additionally, Keith and I were recently viewers of the classic Jesse McCartney movie 'Keith". Oh, have to love anything staring teen idol Jesse McCartney. If you snag the time, I would highly recommend indulging in both..... :).
