I'm Back! And with a Boy!

So I have decided it's time to come back to the blogging world. But for a good reason. Jake and I are having a baby! A cute little boy to be exact, and we are so excited! We got to see him for the first time yesterday and thought it would be fun to let you see.

Here he is!

Apparently he doesn't like to be bothered...

Here is a cute profile of him with his hand near his mouth.

I loved this shot. He's already got a great looking brain. Maybe he will have a "photographic memory" like his dad. (Jake likes to think he does anyways)

For all of you who keep asking for a photo of me, and although I feel very strange taking these profile shots, here it is. When I took this I thought I was 19 1/2 weeks, but after the Dr's visit apparently I am only 17 1/2 weeks. Bummer. But actually it is great news for me because I will probably be able to finish my entire last semester Physical Therapy internship before he is born. That way I will be able to graduate on time! My new due date is December 3 and my clinical rotation will end around November 16 because I will be starting it a week early. Hopefully I can keep going strong until then!

Here are the names we like best and semi-favorite order: Bentley, McKay, Tyler, and Mason. Feel free to comment on them or give suggestions!


  1. Congrats Mindy! That is so so exciting! Motherhood is amazing. Bentley is on my list too (for the future! haha). Good luck!

  2. Congrats min. I'm soooo dang excited for you guys. My vote is on McKay! I love that name!

  3. Congrats Mindy! So excited for you two! I think McKay and Mason are both very cute! Now you better update your blog more often :)

  4. yay yay yay. Of course Tyler is a fantastic name (and we will claim you named him after my tyler), but I really like all three of the other names. Can't wait to see that little Layton boy!

  5. Congratulations!!! I am so excited for you! Yay for boys!

  6. JaMindy/MinAke: I miss you guys. All of those names are rocking. I espesh like Mason and Bentley but I'm just going to say it: Bentley Layton and Mason Layton are kind of hard for me to say. But I'm a boy and so obviously I'm sorta amateur with these things. Of course if Bentley is good at basketball you can call him B-Layton or just B-Layt for short which maybe isn't the best motto but kinda has a nice ring to it. This is getting long. I vote Bentley or Tyler or Ross.
