Finally – the news you've been waiting for

I’ve finally been able to free up time this week, and honestly, you’ve in suspense long enough… It’s a boy! I won’t lie, I’ve suspected it for several weeks now – and have even joked about how this pregnancy must be that much more challenging than what I experienced with Hope because it’s a boy. […]

Barbara Peterson - Congratulations – even if you don’t name him Don’t but it sounds better all the time. You only have to say one word when he’s misbehaving. “Don’t, don’t!”

May 10, 2007 - 2:29 pm

Colette Ruff - Congrats mom. Happy Mother’s day!

May 10, 2007 - 2:29 pm

Jessi VanPelt - okay…boy names…is Peace a boy name? I’m sure Hope will get over the
I-wanted-a-sister thing soon and come up with something! Congrats! I guess now you’ll have to buy clothes that aren’t pink, Amanda!

May 10, 2007 - 2:41 pm

Phyllis Hanson - Hey do we get to vote on names? If so, I vote for Otto Kern- get it, auto kern? Oh, hell, I just crack myself up sometimes. ;o)

I’m glad things are going well and tell Hope it’s better it’s a boy- this way she won’t have to share her Barbies.


May 10, 2007 - 3:56 pm

Meg Grove-Curtiss - Yeah! We need more boys in the world! HA!
…they are a “challenge”…

May 10, 2007 - 4:07 pm

Efrain Lugo - I like Otto Kern :)

You can also choose Moe Kern … get it More Kern hahahaha…

Lemme see you have Hope …. you can try Chance or Ace.

Hope that helps :)

Kenny Roy - ‘Hogan’ – means youth
kinda goes with Hope, not sure if you think that’s cheezy or not

May 10, 2007 - 5:13 pm

kristy pennino - congrats! we’ll have brainstorm and come up with some cool typographic names sometime!

May 10, 2007 - 5:22 pm

Sharyn - Hi Kern Family!

Congrats on thinking blue! Boys are sweet and Hope will think so too. I vote for Jason with a middle name from Mommy’s side of male relatives.

Happy Mom’s Day Amanda! Hugs, Sharyn & family

May 10, 2007 - 6:27 pm

John Sousa - Yeah!!! The suspense is over. Wow, a boy. Congrats. Just be careful when you have to change diapers. Boys have better aim :) Whatever you name him should start with a “J”. J names are the best. Joshua, Jacob, Jordan. Jackson, Jeremiah (I love that name, but Diana said no), James. See, endless possibilities.

Ooh! I have lots of clothes that are too small for Josiah, lemme know if you you’re interested in them. Congrats, again.

May 10, 2007 - 7:39 pm

Kurt J - You know what I’ll just make it easy on you, just call him Kurt, he’ll be original since almost nobody has that name so he’ll be cool in school :)

Happy Mother’s Day

May 10, 2007 - 8:33 pm

Lora S - Congratulations Amanda! I knew it was going to be a boy! Boys have been coming around lately!

How about Noah? Oooh … I bet Jason is ecstatic!

May 10, 2007 - 10:00 pm

Nando - Aaw!! Congratulations, Amanda! I’m so glad for you.

This is so cool, he’s going to have an older sister to watch out for him.

Again, congrats & I wish you guys the best!!

p.s. Happy Mother’s Day!

May 10, 2007 - 11:19 pm

perfectdecember - YAY!!!!!!!
Daria and I are so happy for you and Jason (and Hope too!)

May 10, 2007 - 11:28 pm

Faye E. - Congratulations! “Big sister” can help educate and entertain!!!!

May 11, 2007 - 12:02 am

K. Simari - Ha! I knew it! Dont worry about Hope, because my bff had the same issue with her daughter, but later in her pregnancy she was more accepting and couldnt wait to have a baby brother. he is here now and she adores him! I think there is a same age difference my friends daughter is 4 / almost 5.
some name i like are,
good luck in chosing a name, maybe when Hope comes around she will have some ideas for names :)

May 11, 2007 - 7:52 am

Phyllis - Okay, Kristy- game on.

How about.

Franklin? Franklin Gothic Kern

or perhaps

Beau? Beau Doni Kern

No? Then maybe

Cal? Cal Edonia Kern

and last but not least

Bernhard? Bernhard Em (as in Modern) Kern.

I’m all out…

Amanda and Jason, feel free to use any of these names that suit your fancy. ha!

May 11, 2007 - 9:32 am

Angela Scarlato - Oh my gosh, that’s so cool! Congratulations!

May 11, 2007 - 9:32 am

kristy pennino - tracken kern
justen kern
tyte kern

(and to play off of the noah thing):

noah whento kern


May 11, 2007 - 2:01 pm

Phyllis - You forgot Les Kern.

We’re such geeks! ;o)

May 11, 2007 - 7:28 pm

Amanda Kern - Oh my, these name ideas are hilarious. Sorry but to fill in everyone who isn’t a designer – “kern” is actually a design term relating to typography – I’ll let you guys who are curious where all these hilarious crazy names are coming from read about it here:

Definitely keep the names coming…

And yes, we are all excited, though Jason actually admits he was hoping for a girl. Now of course he’s very proud be having a little boy too. He made sure he got a second opinion from the doctor on the ultrasound to make sure the tech read it right – but as you can see – there’s no doubt at all.

May 12, 2007 - 3:21 pm

Janice Lewis - CONGRATS! You are going to have so much fun!

May 12, 2007 - 8:34 pm

Rick & Barb - I knew it!! CONGRATS to you all!! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!! Tell Jason and Hope we said Hi!!

May 13, 2007 - 2:11 pm

Jason - Amanda, have you decided on a name yet? I have always been drawn to Jona, Tray or Austin.

May 19, 2007 - 11:03 pm

Lisa - Hey Amanda,
Congrats on the baby boy!!! Baby boys are GREAT!! Well a boys name that I like is Jayce. I picked Kaitlynn’s name from this website if that helps you any.

July 2, 2007 - 7:06 pm

Another update + help name the baby! « Random Thoughts - [...] upon the perfect name in the upcoming months. A handful of you were generous enough to offer some suggestions back in May, to include some fun names that relate to design or typography. Though it’s tough [...]

It's a….

When we had Hope we decided to wait to find out if she was a girl or boy, for the joy of being surprised on delivery day. Just as with Hope we’ve really just been praying for a healthy baby, but we’ve decided to end the torture early this time and find out whether we’re […]

K. Simari - UUGGHH! I hate suspense! :)
Its a boy, right? I think it is.

May 8, 2007 - 4:12 pm

Efrain Lugo - Its another girl! If it is call her Joy! That would be a nice name.

May 8, 2007 - 4:56 pm

soujohn - so unfair. so very unfair.

C’mon we all want some excitement. Well, whatever the gender of the baby it still has one of thee coolest last names ever.

May 8, 2007 - 5:41 pm

Kenny Roy - It’s totally a penguin!

May 8, 2007 - 5:43 pm

Lisa - Yeah I agree with everyone else… I think that you should tell us what the baby is going to be. Also, good luck on the interview.

May 8, 2007 - 5:47 pm

Lora - It’s a boy, isn’t it? My friends have all had boys this year and my sister just had another boy this past Sunday! So I’m going with boy!!

May 8, 2007 - 8:31 pm

Kurt J - I’m going with Kenny’s guess and saying its a penguin. :)

May 8, 2007 - 8:56 pm

Barbara Peterson - I’m guessing it’s a boy. And I suggest naming him Don’t. But you’ll have to add a hyphenated last name. So he’d be Don’t Kern-Bodycopy :-) Sorry, couldn’t resist. Whatever it is and whatever you call it we’ll love it. Especially if it’s anything like Hope.

May 8, 2007 - 8:57 pm

stacey - congratulations on finding out! now tell us!

May 8, 2007 - 9:12 pm

kristy pennino - i say this is just pure meanness!


May 8, 2007 - 10:22 pm

Jessi VanPelt - Ya, humpf! I hope he or she is not a penguin…Florida’s too hot!
I think Hope needs a little sister. I have a little brother, and it was not that fun… And I agree, Joy would be a nice name.
Anyway, congrats! Either way, its a baby!
Let us know how the Savannah eLearning is…I was considering that.

May 9, 2007 - 12:39 am

Jonathan - lol you are so mean :D

May 9, 2007 - 7:05 am

Mandy Bee - I also think Kenny’s right.

The suspense is killing me!!!

May 9, 2007 - 9:28 am

Tatyana Wilson - Oooo!!!! Congratulations!!!! I am so excited about the news! I know exactly how are you feeling because I had a baby 6 months ago, and it still seems like it was yesterday. I am very happy for you and your husband! I wish you all the best, hope it will be an easy and healthy pregnancy. And, Miss Kern, if you need any help, I will be happy to do my best, I know how hard it is to be pregnant and have a job!

May 9, 2007 - 11:55 am

Colette Ruff - You are sooo wrong for doing this to us! Pay back is a m*ther, you know what I mean…HA HA! LATE NITE/MORNING Feedings. DIAPER PALES STICKING UP THE HOUSE!

I still love you though. God Bless and quick delivery!

May 10, 2007 - 8:07 am

Rick & Barb - You have to keep us in suspense…..and WHY??? Ok I’ll play………for now!! ** sigh **

Whatever it is I know you’ll both be the best parents you can be. Just look at Hope!
