BOY! I was supposed to have a girl, but on July 1st, had a baby boy! His name is Jonah Raymond, and he was 8 lbs, 7 oz. I have to make new annoucements since I made girl ones -- but I am super excited! I will post a picture soon!

Congratulations, Amanda! I'm sure he's sweet as can be!

Sereikastamper 07-11-2004 08:54 AM

Congratulations!!! Funny how even in this day and age modern technology can still make a mistake!!! HA HA!!! So we can't wait to see the announcements!!!! I can't wait to have mine...I am not due until next Sunday though!

joleenieweenie 07-11-2004 09:07 AM

Oh my goodness! And this whole time he's had a girl name! :lol: How funny! I am so glad you are home and well and able to post! I have been wondering about you the past few days! :D Beautiful name, by the way! CONGRATULATIONS to you and your family!

Amanda and family

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, Amanda, on your new "surprise" baby - hee! Love the name, and can't wait to see pics!

All the best to you and your family!

Beate 07-11-2004 09:11 AM

Congratulations on your healthy baby boy. That is wonderful.

Hugs and smiles.

Tami Wacek 07-11-2004 09:28 AM

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.

scdecker 07-11-2004 09:32 AM

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?

carolync6 07-11-2004 09:59 AM

Congratulations! I love the name Jonah. Wish I'd thought of it for one of mine.


Sharon Worley 07-11-2004 10:19 AM

A sweet baby boy - congratulations, Amanda!!

Stampin'Mumof2Girls 07-11-2004 10:23 AM

CONGRATS on the birth of your "surprise" baby boy!! I am sure you are thrilled! Hope you are feeling good!

JanTInk 07-11-2004 10:24 AM

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!

TexasGrammy 07-11-2004 10:31 AM

Oh, Congratulations Amanda!
What a wonderful surprise!!

hockeymomto2boys 07-11-2004 10:35 AM

Congrats Amanda, can't wait to see a picture.

srogers5 07-11-2004 10:42 AM

Congratulations. I also had a boy on July 1st...but five years ago. Don't forget to change your signature. No more Claire! Enjoy him!

LunarLana 07-11-2004 10:48 AM

It's a Boy!

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. :D

karixma 07-11-2004 01:09 PM

Congratulations! I had wondered where you had gotten to.

babscx1 07-11-2004 01:13 PM

Reminds me that the doctors SWORE I was having a boy (even pointed out the boy parts!) and when the baby came out he was a SHE!!!! I had a lot of exchanging to do, but boy was I excited!!!!!!! My hubby kept telling the doctor he had the wrong husband! :D

Lisa Lisa 07-11-2004 02:47 PM

Clap, Clap, Clap!!!! Yeah! what a wonderful surprise.

we were going to name my oldest daughter Mette Elyse.
I sometimes still call her MEEEJ. after those MEJ initials! HA

Enjoy that sweet Boy! God Bless YOU!!!

Well, glad that everything came out ok.... even though it was the wrong sex.... but now you have one of each! :)


kimmery 07-11-2004 03:16 PM

Congratulations Amanda!
I'm so thrilled for you. Babies are such a wonderful blessing. I hope that you are feeling well and getting those much needed naps! Little boys are so fun and I bet Daddy is so excited to have a little man in the house! Best wishes and much happiness to you and yours! Kim :D

stampin3 07-11-2004 03:42 PM

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!!!!

HeatherJ 07-11-2004 05:01 PM

Kookie 07-11-2004 05:08 PM
