Hayden and Layla's Place

New Baby Pool May 10, 2010

Filed under: Website Info — JDG @ 12:38 am

We figured it’s time to start the book up on when our little boy/girl will get born, what he/she will be, and how heavy he/she will be.   Here’s how it works:

Lowest score will win.  Wrong sex will cost 5pts.  Every day away from the date will cost 2pts.  Every 6ozs either side of the birth weight will cost an additional 1 pt.  Time of birth will be used as a tie breaker, if necessary.

You can guess by either adding a comment to this post with your details (sex, dob, weight, time of birth) or by sending an email to Kara or John with the same details.

Cost is $5 and winner takes all (minus any fees we incur collecting the money) .  US folks can either use paypal (click on send money, use John’s email address and select personal and gift) or send us a cheque.  UK peeps can use PayPal (as above, just make sure you select US $ as the currency) and we’ll make sure you get the winnings converted into pounds if you win.  Please be prompt with your payment after your guess so we don’t have to chase people down!

Some info on Hayden in case this helps:

He was due on the August 8th and was born on August 3rd 2007 at 09:38 am.  Kara had to have a cesarean because he was upside down (breech); she did not go into labor.  His weight was 7lbs 4oz and height 20 1/2 inches.

For this baby Kara is convinced it’s a girl, I’m convinced it’s a boy.   You can see the scan pictures here in case they help.  Due date is June 3rd.  Kara had her 36 week appointment on May 7, and she was 80% effaced and 1 cm dilated.

New Blog Home…. A New Look And Feel…. July 7, 2009

Out with the old and in with the new…..

As much as we love the old Hayden blog and gallery we have decided to move to an online hosted blog through WordPress for reasons of just saving money and wanted more flexibility with the pictures.  It’s the same software that we were using before but it has some enhancements and also some restrictions.  It has more controls on what we can do (i.e. we can’t link the headers to external sites) but it’s easy to use and we think the template we are using is pretty cool!!

haydenplaceIt means you’ll need to update any RSS feeds you had set up.  Probably also want to change your bookmarks unless you had the root domain (www.haydengoodwin.com) bookmarked which should still bring you back here..

We’ve also moved the Gallery to use Flickr.  This is probably the most popular online photo sharing network, and it’s easy (for people in the US at least) to print your pictures.  You can also download, comment and share the pictures easily.

Let us know what you think!!
