Congratulations on your wonderful new addition! I hope that big sister enjoys having a little brother (they will still play with Barbies!). I love the name that you chose. Hope you are feeling well.

Congratulations! The same thing happened to me. We were expecting Lauren Nicole and ended up with Christopher Matthew. What a surprise! Hard to believe that was 6 years ago. What a cute name you picked out! Can't wait to see pictures.

Default Welcome to

Jonah! I'm glad you opted to change the name. A boy named Sue is one thing ... Take a big sniff of that lovely baby smell for me. What a wonderful surprise. Do you have to repaint the nursery?

Congratulations...funny how they don't always see that vital equipment on an ultrasound, LOL!

My last one I assumed would be a girl, since we had already had two girls. Towards the end of the pregnancy, I suspected he was a boy...it was so different being pregnant with him than with the girls. He had habit of sitting on top of my sciatic nerve with his little head and pushing! Ouch!

I remember in the hospital how different it was having a boy. When my girls were hungry, they cried. Billy grunted just like Tim Allen on Home Improvement!

Enjoy that baby...they do grow up awful fast!

CONGRATULATIONS! Boys are so much fun! I have a boy and a girl and just marvel in how different they can be but still be so much alike. Mmmmm new baby smells.

Congratulations Amanda on your new bundle of joy!!! Of course, now I am a bit worried - I am due the end of August with a girl (my 2nd daughter). I always have said you can't be guaranteed until the actual birth.

CONGRATS again!!!!
