Lisa @ The Preacher's Wife said...

Since you've said before that you wanted to cap the baby-having at two children, I SO hoped you would have a girl.

I can't even begin to tell you what a joy my girl is to me. You will love her with all the energy of Jackson but with totally different methods. If that makes any sense at all....

Congratulations!! I KNOW how excited you are!:)

Fran said...

YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY!!!!

So happy that baby girl is healthy and I just know you are so stinkin excited!!!

Praising God with ya!!
Big hugs,
Fran

AAAHHH! Congrats! Welcome to my world. It's so fun to have girls - actually, it's all I know, since I have 3 of them. I'm so excited for you, Curtis, & Jackson! He will be an awesome big brother.
Names? Got anything picked out?

Amy said...

Yeah! Baby Girls are so fun! What a perfect little family!

Curtis will never know what hit him!

And I am sure your mom is thrilled! She can pass down a little silver teasing comb & her love of big hair!

So excited for you!

Spicy Magnolia said...

WHOOHOO!! That is SO exciting and I love the little outfits! What a special day. Oh, it makes me want a little girl! :)

Emmy said...

That makes me SO happy! I can't quit smiling! So perfect... I am thrilled for you all!

Oh shopping for a girl is SO much fun! Watch out Curtis!

I am tickled pink! Thank you Lord!

Emmy : )

Kelli said...

YEAH!! Congratulations! You are going to love having a sweet little princess in your house! Jackson is going to be the BEST big brother to a sweet little girl! We are so happy for you guys!

Where in Houston did you find that sweet little outfit on the right?!?!? I have been having a hard time finding sweet long sleeve clothes like that!

Holly said...

Congratulations! I can't imagine your mom is TOO excited either, huh?

Lizz @ Yes, and So is My Heart said...

Congratulations! Girls are so fun. And, there isn't much sweeter than watching a big brother love on his little sister.

Mandi said...

Yippee!!! There is some serious shopping to be done for this precious baby girl...love the outfits you picked out!

Tara D. said...

Oh my stinkin' goodness...congrats!

Landon Andrew said...

WOW Amanda. So happy for you. Thank goodness for healthy babies! I know Baby Gap has some ADORABLE girl clothes too.

Jenna said...

Congrats!!!!! HOW FUN!!!

rusty'swife said...

Curtis, Amanda, and Mister,

Congradulations on a girl. I bet grandparents are beside themselves. Praying for a smooth pregnancy and delivery.

God is so good!

Melissa said...

Oh my word, Amy's comb comment distracted me from what I was going to type. Which pretty much was just, "CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!". SUCH exciting news. Jackson is going to be such a wonderful big brother, Curtis a tender, loving daddy, you a wonderful momma...and if your mother and sister have anything to do with it this will be one SPOILED and stylin' chickie! Many prayers to you tonight for a safe delivery of Baby GIRL Jones into this world!

Heather said...

PERFECT! I am so happy for you, Amanda!!! That is amazing!

Patty said...

I am so happy for you!! What cute clothes. You are going to have so much fun buying little girl clothes!!

Cheri-Beri said...

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES!!! I was soooooooo hoping you'd have a girl! Did you nearly fall off the table when they told you? I *think* you were fairly certain it was a boy, right? I was the same way!! But once I got the "yes ma'am" about the girl I literally bought anything that was pink. My dd's little closet full of clothes was monochromatic to say the least.

I am so unbelievably happy for you, Amanda. To get to experience and boy AND a girl is a true blessing from God. You are going to be blown away . . . . .

Lots of love from the Evergreen state :-)

a boy, a girl and a pug said...

congratulations! that is so wonderful!

Cathy Davis said...

yahoooooo-JAH!!!!

Amanda - We bought my almost 16 yo a car yesterday!! Enjoy and cherish the time with those babies - they grow tooo fast.

I'm so excited for all of you! Thank you for sharing your news with us :-)!

Honea Household said...

Oh my goodness, I am so excited for you!!! She will be a beautiful little girl. Congratulations!!! Any names picked out??? I really am so excited!!!

YAY!! Pink!!!

Kelly said...

YEAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just KNEW It was going to be a girl!!!!! So excited you get to have some pink in your life too!
I have been waiting all day to find out and I'm THRILLED!!!!!! :-)

bethany said...

I am sooooooo excited for you Amanda!!!! I recently became a new auntie to a little girl named Kensley on September 4th...she is the only girl in our family so far. My nephews Cole and Evan are
2 1/2 years old and my newest nephew Isaac is almost 1 week old (born Friday the 12th).
So far little girls are so much fun. I do have to say a little too much pink though!
Kensley's room is all done up in pink and brown John Deere theme....I've got pictures on my blog if you are interested!
Yeah....I am so glad it is a girl for you!!!!

Amy Beth @ Ministry So Fabulous! said...

Well, I nearly FELL OUT OF BED! I am just shocked. AND SO STINKIN' EXCITED.

Lora said...

How exciting!!! Darlin' clothes. Bountiful blessings to you all!

Danielle said...

Congrats on your baby girl. I have two of them and they are the best. So much fun dressing up. I'm sure big brother will be a great protector one day.

Nicole said...

Yea!!! I am so happy for you and your fam! You thought shopping for a boy was fun...just wait!! Goodness, girls clothes are just too much! Mister Jackson is going to be a great big brother to his little sis! NOW we have to wait to see HER!
I pray that she would be full of grace, purity and absolute joy. That she would be a woman of compassion and that she would be filled with a great and deep passion for her Savior. Blesings to you and this sweet little girl!

Holly said...

Yay! I only know you through this blog, but I just knew you were going to have a girl! When you posted the pic of the cute little baby boy jacket from baby Gap, I thought something along the lines of, "She won't need that for a girl." :)

Smelling Coffee said...

I'm so excited for all of you! You will love being a "girl mom!" - just like you love being a "boy mom"! It's so much fun to open the baby's closet and see a sea of pink and white and cuteness. Congratulations and the Lord's blessings to you!

Murrell Family said...

We are so pumped for you guys! I can't believe that it is a girl!!! What a blessing!melissaamurrell

Shelley said...

Congratulations Amanda!!! What a blessing to have a boy AND a girl to love! I feel I've been blessed to get to have both, I pray the same blessings on you!

Kimberly said...

Praise the Lord for little girls!

Linsey said...

Having a little boy and then a little baby girl is just the sweetest thing ever! You will just die from the joy you see when your little Mister is so excited to see your sweet girl. Oh, I am just so excited for you. Plus, she will have to be one tough cookie to put up with the "wrestling" that a two year old brother can put her through!

Jennifer said...

congratulations! :)

Brittnie said...

This is WONDERFUL! I love pink!

Leslie said...

SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awwwww, you will be so blessed!

Leslie

Suzi said...

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been checking in all day to find out!:)

I am so happy for you! Girls are so much fun! My baby girl is the sweetest little thing!

Your family must be thrilled:)

Love the outfits you have for her!!!

Suzi said...

Oh, and now it's time to pick a NAME that was So hard for us!!:)

Tara said...

Praise the Lord!!! I have been checking back often today in hopes that you would post- A little girl! I am so excited for you!!!!

I am a mom of twins (a boy and a girl)- Though I love my little boy like crazy, there is a special bond between a mother and her daughter!!! You are going to have so much fun shopping, doing nails, and doing hair! And I bet your Mom and sister are just beside themselves.

Congratulations again!

Stephanie said...

Yeah!! I was hoping for a girl for you! Enjoy the break from blue and start embracing all that pink!! Glad to hear that!! Praying for your and that little girl you're carrying!!

jennyhope said...

YAY GIRL!!!!! I am so happy for you!! That is so awesome!! If you still want to put that mural of me, you and Fran in her room we are ok with it. LOL!!

beyond this moment said...

Congratulations Amanda!! Girls are a whole different adventure but more fun than you can imagine. =)

jamie b said...

Oh my gosh! I would have never guessed! :) YAY! CONGRATULATIONS! I'm sure Jackson will be a great big brother.

Mel @ Studio MCA Designs said...

Congrats to you! Jackson is going to make one amazing, protective older brother.

Prairie Rose said...

Congratulations!!! I was hoping it'd be a girl. :o)

Ang said...

Amanda...I'm so excited for you, Curt and Jackson to have a little girl in your life! She will be the perfect addition to the Jones family...and I'll tell you, I would not have had any older sibling but MY big brother, so she will be blessed with Jackson, for sure! I love you guys so much!

judy said...

Congratualtions!!!!

Okay, this is weird.....I called it earlier today (with my friend Valerie) and girl it is. That's three for three for me. Weird.....or maybe just a fluke. :)

My daughter in law is due Jan. 3rd with a boy.
My daughter is due Feb. 18th with a girl.

GOD IS GOOD!!

Again, congratulations!

bethany said...

Congrats Amanda!!
I'm finding that the whole girl thing is a big switch, especially after a rough and tumble boy, but it's more fun to dress her than it was Jak :)
I'm excited for you!

Way More Homemade said...

Congratulations. There's nothing like a daughter in the house.

:)

~Donna

foreverfoldinglaundry said...

So happy for you!! I have two boys and a girl and they are all joys, but in different ways. So glad you'll be able to experience both! (The only con: it's much more expensive to have a girl...the clothes are hard to resist!)

The Walkie Talkie said...

I am delurking to say- paint the world pink!!! Congratulations! I am the mother of three: a boy and two girls.

When we found out our youngest was a girl I looked at my husband and said, "What are we going to do with 2 girls?" My husband (who has 2 brothers) responded by saying, "I didn't know what to do with one let alone two girls." Our oldest (our boy) piped up from the back seat and said, "We will feed her, bathe her, love her and pray for her." Out of the mouth of babes!

All that to say...CONGRATULATIONS! I am very happy for your growing family! Praise the Lord...every good and perfect gift is from Him!

PartyofFive said...

Yeah! A sweet little girl. Congratulations!

Holly said...

Oh Yeah!!!! Thank you LORD! Thank You. You are good. And you are hedging this sweet family round about with blessings. Keep on, LORD. Keep on!

Can't wait to hear what her name will be and see if she has thick, beautiful hair. YEAH! 3 generations of hair ministry!!

Marc and Charity said...

Congratulations! Girls are so fun!

We find out on Monday what we are having, I can't wait!

Bev Brandon said...

Congratulations on your baby girl! Kept checking and wondering and oh my! A girl! Wait til you hold her like a girl. It's so His plan to wrap His glory in a girl for you. Just read a little bit ago Ezra 7:27,28 God has put into your heart to bring honor to Him---and you both so do!---HE has extended his good Favor to you both---yes HE has---and the good Hand of your beautiful God is on you both, take courage. We all believe with you that He chose you out of all the mothers in the whole world for this baby girl.

Mainly a midwife said...

Congratulations!! I am blessed to have two healthy kids.(6yo son and 4 yo daughter). They are both blessings to me. But my daughter is such a special blessing to me because I "get" her. I so enjoy all the girly things we do together because SHE enjoys them so much. And let me just warn you...the shopping... it just goes on and on and on.
I bet your mom is beside herself with joy.

Three Fold Cord said...

Praise the Lord. You Moore's are going to have so much fun!!!!! My first is a girl and it is an amazing bond between Mother and Daughter. totally different then Mother and Son. My boys are precious don't get me wrong -you will know as soon as she is here. This is just sooo soo exciting. YAY!!! Curtis your heart will melt. OHHH wow just so thrilled. Wish i could here your sister and your mom's response. Your dad will sure to have all the support and encouragement Curtis will need in the years to come.

Michele said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You will now have one of each:)

twinkle said...

Oh man! I'm picturing right now your daddy with this precious baby GIRL in his arms and it is a sweet picture!
THIS is going to be so much fun for all of you.
Amanda, you are the best mommy. Is she a peach yet? I know she was an avocado...

creative gal said...

Deedra said...

Congratulations! I'm so excited fo you!

I was SURE I was having another boy too!...and shocked when I found out I wasn't! Lisa is right, you will love her just as much as you love Jackson...but with different methods. And my favorite thing is watching the big brother(2) with his new baby sister (5 months). It's the sweetest thing in the world!!

p.s...I just bought the outfit on the right for my baby girl! so cute!

Kelly said...

How much is that sweet boy going to treasure his baby sister?

What a sweet thing this will be for your life- congratulations!

Billie said...

Oh, WOW!!!! Congratulations. Tell Hubs that he might as well check his heart at the door now. Oh, and I bet Bibbs is beside herself!

lori said...

YAY!! Oh the joy you will have watching Jackson be that strong big brother to his little sister. For me watching my Ethan protect Elissa has been phenomenal

Serah said...

Congratulations! For some reason, I just saw you with another little boy, but this is a great surprise!

Faith said...

Oh how exciting!! So happy for you guys. Bring on the pink!!!

Gabby said...

One of each is precious. My son was first, my daughter second. It is so nice to have each. You just wait, you thought shopping for Jackson was fun... Girl's clothes are by far more plentiful and too cute! Enjoy!
PTL!

Mary B said...

Oh so fun! Congratulations and enjoy all things pink!

Lisa said...

WHAAAAHOOOOOOO!!! I have one of each, and while I would have felt blessed no matter what, it's so fun to see the differences between boys and girls. I just KNEW it was a girl! I even had two names come to my mind... we'll have to see if either one of them is right! ;)

Blessings in abundance, Amanda!

Lisa

Gwendolyn said...

Yay! I'm so excited for all of you!

Georgia Jan said...

Amanda!!! A GIRL!!!

What a blessing...I never had a daughter of my own, but I have two precious daughters-in-law that are a joy and delight.

Oh - I wish I could see Bibbi's FACE!

I am so excited for y'all,

Georgia Jan

BethAnne said...

Well Praise the Lord!!! As the mother of 2 boys (and I love love love my boys) I always get excited when I find out someone is having a girl. We definitely have a "pink deficiency" at my house. Let's face it, boys are so much fun, but their clothes and hair are not.
Congratulations! Be sure and post pictures of other cute pink clothes you buy for us 'boy moms'. ;-)

Congratulations, my friend! Can't wait to meet her! Love you!

AHHH!!! Congratulations! Girls are fabulous! She will be the most stylish little thing. Praise God for knitting her together. He always knows what He's doing. I wish you all the best!

Kim said...

Congratulations Amanda! What a special blessing. Oh how much fun you will have. It's so wonderful to watch the differences between a son and daughter. And, I love to watch my son take care of his little sister in the cutest of ways. Oh, this is just so great for you! Congratulations again.

Lynn said...

Oh Amanda! I am so very happy for you - what a precious and blessed little girl she is.

I am praying that you continue to have a healthy and safe pregnancy and delivery.

Happy Bibby

MITZI said...

I am soooooo happy for you! You are going to go crazy with all the cute girly things on the market. Enjoy!

kara with a k said...

Hi Amanda,

I am de-lurking today (I've been reading your blog for well over a year now) to say congrats!! I just knew you were going to have a girl!!!! What a blessing to have one of each, though I know you would have been happy either way. God bless you and I am glad to hear your house was safe after Ike.

Kara

The Van Fam said...

I have already told you had completely stinkin' excited I am for you. I have tried many times to put into words how different it is to love a boy and a girl. It seems like you would love all your children the same, but you don't. You love them in equal amounts but it's a different feeling for each. I seriously can't wait for you to experience both.

Oh, and praying that this sweet one will be your "easy" one. M is sure not mine, but surely we each get one easy one. Or one that's not a quite an entire handful...maybe just 4 fingers. Maybe? I don't know...but it will be so much fun finding out.

Shall I dedicate a section of M's closet to clothes being saved for Baby Girl Jones? You know I will...I'll throw a few boys on top just in case. She's a Moore baby so we know she'll have some hair!

Heather said...

Yeah for a baby girl! We are enjoying our girl and the boys are absolutely precious with her! The shopping is soooo much more expensive though :)

Have fun thinking pink! :)

Jen said...

Oooohh I NEEDED some GOOD NEWS today! :) How wonderful for the sweet Jones family!

Jackson will be the sweetest big brother.

Congratulations to you and Curt!

Tammie said...

Jenn was over when your Mama sent out the word to the "village". Was SO excited!!

Erin said last night at dinner to the Hamms that he's gonna have to give Curtis some tips on the girl thang! He said, "you just wait bubba...you just wait!" Was hilarious.

Love you and so excited for a baby girl ♥

lavonda said...

I'm so Happy for you all!

And that she'll have a big brother to look out for her and protect her her whole life -- what a sweet blessing.

My little girl has a big brother too and I just love seeing her go to him and ask him about things (he makes up half his answers. You know - he's teaching her about life. :) And it makes me so proud when I see that 5th grader looking out for his 2nd grade sister at school.

Yours will be the best of friends too. Pray over their relationship starting now. (I did that from the day I found out I was pregnant with my second).

(and better pray over your checkbook too while you're at it -- oh my.
Precious little girl clothes are waaaaay to easy to shop for!)

The Barfuss Family said...

SOOOOO excited for you!!!

Kelly @ Love Well said...

Dang.

He was right.

(My sister was hoping he'd be wrong, because she's currently pregnant with her second, and she was hoping for a girl. But according to my freaking husband, she's having a boy. Eleven out of 11.)

CONGRATULATIONS! I will resist buying cute baby girl clothes for you and sending them to LPM.

Must... resist....

Dionna said...

Oh. You are going to have such a blast shopping for a little girl! I wish I would have had more spending money when my girls were babies but it still was fun - even on a budget.

shalana said...

Congratulations!

Linda said...

Amanda, I only know you thru this blog (and your Mom's), but I can't tell you how excited I am for you & Curt and Jackson! I was praying for you one day shortly after finding out you were expecting, and I had a mental picture of Jackson being a protective big brother to an adorable little princess! I only wish you could have recorded everyone's response to the news - it must have been priceless.

Congratultions, and much love to all of the Jones family!
Linda

JayCee said...

Congrats to all! I have 3 of them and you are just going to LOVE having a girl! Blessings!!

Becca said...

Awesome news Amanda! I am so excited for ya'll! Cute little pink outfits, dresses, hairbows, girls are so much fun!

His Doorkeeper said...

Oh what fun!! A girl to go with Jackson and your family is blessed to be sure!!

Congrats and many blessings to all your family!

Now, what are you going to name this sweet little miss??

ocean mommy said...

Praise the Lord. :) You are in for the time of your life!!!

How special!

blessings,

Lori said...

Can I just say I checked back here like 30 times yesterday to see if you have posted yet! Jackson is going to be a GREAT BIG BROTHER to the princess. Little girl stuff is SO MUCH FUN.

kari said...

Teri~Facedown said...

AHHHHHHH! Yay Amanda! Boy's are SO fun, I have two of them! But I am SO blessed to be a mom of a daughter too, it is so precious! Congratulations

Jennifer said...

How fun! I am excited for you.
Smiles!

Susan B. said...

Congratulations! A little girl, how wonderful! I only have one boy, and I spent plenty of money on his clothes. If it had been a girl...I'd still be paying it off! They just seem to have cuter clothes for girls. I can't wait to hear about all the differences between boys and girls.

sweethomealagirl said...

oh how fun! congratulations on the pink! it took me 4 times to get that ;)

anrdraper1212 said...

Congratulations Amanda! I love my boy too, but there's just somethin' about having both that makes life all the sweeter and richer! Enjoy picking out those adorable girl outfits-you will not believe all that's out there for girls!
Love, Amy in OK

Terri said...

Congratulations on your news. I have 3 boys, ages 12, 10 and 8 and a little girl who just turned 5. Girls are so, so, so different from boys, but they are all definitely gifts from God.

Profbaugh said...

Woo Hoo!! You are so going to love having a daughter. What a blessing.

Cindy-Still His Girl said...

Yeah!!! Congratulations! You have SOOO much to look forward to... baby dolls and strollers, pink tutus, sparkly shoes, tiny purses, nailpolish, matching aprons, mommy-daughter shopping dates, crayon pictures of rainbows and flowers with "I love you Mommy" written on them.

Thanks for sharing this with us! Can't wait to "meet" her! :)

Darlene R. said...

I am SOOO happy for you! Little girls are so fun to buy for!

Hooray for little sisters!!

I can say that because I am one and I don't have any! :)

kittyhox said...

Congratulations!!!! What wonderful news.

I'm also expecting a girl and let's be honest - it's very hard not to buy every available and truly adorable pink thing. I'm trying to resist the urge to buy a dollhouse and tea set and one of those darling little baby buggies and an American Girl doll.

I don't remember having a spending problem at all with my son.

I'm so happy for you and am excited to see how we boy mamas adjust to raising daughters. Just thinking about the word "daughter" fills me with such a tremendous sense of responsibility.

Bless you and your little family!

HisGeorgiaPeach said...

Yay!! I'm so excited for y'all! Seeing as I'm still single, I don't have kids, but I do know that you will have fun with her and spoil her rotten. :)

~Sarah

Nicole said...

I am so excited for you I can't even begin to tell you how excited. I think it's such a blessing to be able to experince having a daughter and a son. They are so remarkably different and exciting. Oh my gosh.

Kristen said...

YAY! I was secretly hoping it would be a girl! How perfect...one of each! Can't wait to see and hear all about your new adventures with your little girl! Congrats!

Krystal said...

YES! This is GREAT news! Karoline and Klaire will be thrilled to meet their new friend!

Kristin said...

Oh WOW! What exciting news! I totally had the days mixed up and thought what you learned of yesterday was actually happening today! So...as your first thoughts this morning were "it's a girl!" I was praying for a great utlra sound and a coopertive baby. I was so excited to log on this morning and see the news! I was totally conviced it was a boy because you seemed so sure. And the whole comment from the nurse about thinking you were having another boy only convinced me more. What a fun surprise! Girls are so much fun! And big brothers are so great for little sisters! I'm so happy for you all! ~ Kristin

Erica said...

I love that you are having a girl! I am partial to them...you picked some adorable things for sure. And you were right on the LPM blog...the spending and shopping has only just begun!

MamaCass said...

Yay Amanda! A girl. So so happy for you!

Nancy Mon said...
