So finally we have a name!!! As you know I went through hell and back to get the name I wanted. Recently MIL tried to tell DH that Jaylen sounded feminine. Could you believe her? I mean talk about sabotage!!! He came to me and was like "everyone thinks it sounds like a girls name" so I said "who is everyone?". He goes my mother... I stopped him right there and told him that it was our decision and that his parents got to choose their babies names and that he never thought it was girly before and that just because they wanted a biblical name doesn't mean they get to criticize and try to override our decision. I felt like his mother was trying to still be the most important lady in his life which early on it had to be told to her by him that I am now that woman. Well you know that this made me want "Jaylen" even more to prove my point that I am his wife and these are my kids and I pushed them out. I risked my life to have them. So DH finally bent to what I wanted and I couldn't be happier. He was torn between naming him after him, but he was never really crazy about his name so the compromise was to make it the middle name. We also used his father's middle name as part of the middle name which basically makes his name contain his father's entire name which I am fine with as long as his first name is Jaylen!!!

Victory is mine!!! It feels good to show his mother who's boss!!!

Here is a pic. My favorite so far. We took professional ones that I will share when we get them. I had to send this pic to my email from my cell phone so I will only post one for now. He is the cutest little thing and I am so "IN LOVE"!!! This is my man.

SORRY deleted pic because last name was in it. re-posted in another post in this thread!

  Thanks Joelle for my awesome new siggy!!!

Congratulations on little Jaylen! It doesn't sound like a girl's name to me. I knew a Jalen in high school, and he was very definitely a guy!
