It's a Boy!!

Gideon Raymond
8' 6oz. 20" long
Gideon means "Great Warrior".
May he always fight for God and what's right!  Gideon will have to be tough with three big brothers who love him!  Can you tell how happy Amos is with four sons! Raymond is one of Gideon's Great Grandpa's name. (These pictures aren't in any special order and I was unable to download them all, but, I know you'll enjoy them Grandpa and Grandma M. and N's. and aunty and uncle!!)

What a cute little guy!  Rebekah said it was her shortest labor, and easiest even though he was her largest baby.

Such cute little cheeks Gideon has!
Aunty Miriam taking her turn holding Gideon.


The boys were so excited that they kept wanting to hold him.  For some reason they thought his name should be "Shooter" and called him that.

The boys had to check out this brother by peeking at his eyes, poking him in the nose, patting him on the head and rubbing his cheeks.  He passed inspection and will be very, very well loved!

Congratulations, Amos and Rebekah!  We love you and your boys!
