Want our Meal Train info? We would love your help!
Just fill out the form below so we know you're real :)


  • Is this for real? Totally.

  • Isn't this baby "past-due"? While it is true that Baby Barton-Phillips had an estimated arrival date of 2/11/2023, estimated due dates are just that -- estimated. And "full term" pregnancies are between 38 and 42 weeks. More helpful information here (including why focusing on estimated due dates isn't very helpful for anyone).

  • Where did you come up with this idea? Andrew works in IT, and liked the idea of a status page, kinda like this one. Sarah, consummate Duke fan that she is, loves Did Duke

  • When will this be updated? We appreciate your interest in the arrival of our baby, but we'll probably call our parents before we post an update here. Check back often--we won't leave you hanging!

  • But I want to know NOW! Can I text you for updates? A watched pot never boils, or something like that! If you can’t help yourself, we welcome texts of encouragement or well wishes without an expectation of response :)
