And when we recorded, (chuckles) we recorded your first sound, on the, cassette tape. You, you were crying, I guess you came out rapping, (chuckles). You had alot to say, in fact, uh, we, we didn't have a name for you at that time. And um, I remember, they wouldn't let you leave the hospital with us, until we had a name for you, and, we asked the, the doctor who delivered you, who actually delivered mama's youngest brother. I, I asked him, I said, well what's a name you haven't heard in a long time, because we, I remember we had a lot of discussion on what your name was going to be if you were a boy or a girl, and uh, he said well I havent heard the name Jonah, for quite some time, because you were special, to us, so you were going to have a special name. So we said, we'll name, I said, well what if, we don't have a name, and he said well, were, well you can't leave the ba-, leave the hospital with a, with, with baby "x". (Chuckles) You were going to be baby "x". So I said well we'll name him Jonah, and I said do you like that name. And she said, yeah, we'll name him Jonah. And that's how you got your name.
