Meet Dylan!

Apr 09, 2014 17 Comments by


On Mindy’s due date, her and her husband Justin joked: wouldn’t it be perfect if you went into labor at the gym.

Twenty air squats, a leisurely row and a few jumping jacks later, and their joke became reality. Soon after, Mindy gave birth to Dylan.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.” – Mindy

Congrats Mindy and Justin!

    I teared up watching my own video… that itty bitty little guy is my greatest accomplishment. It’s been so fun to share the entire experience with all of you. He has no idea how big his family really is! Feel free to come visit and meet him!

    Mindy, so sweet, so precious. Watching this I can feel the intensity of your love for that little bundle. I sense that intensity has grown from the time I saw you both in the hospital. It feels overwhelming, the love and joy that’s flowing out of every pore you have. It’s a love that knows no boundaries, no limits. I LOVE IT! I LOVE it for you and Justin. He is perfect and IS blessed to have you both!

    Immediate unconditional love. I could have held that little peanut all day long! – I so miss my boys being that tiny.

    While their mamas were WODing, Josie, Mila and I hit the bake path for a walk today. Was great to get back outside and absorb some of the sunshine. We got about 1.5m in today.

    Mindy glad to hear you both are doing well. I know everyone tells you to enjoy every stage, but it’s true. I just look at my boy the other day sitting on the couch shirtless and thought “where did my baby go?”.

    My favorite show during the 90′s was Fresh Prince!

      Cut him some slack it’s his first baby & sleep deprived. He will learn sooner or later that he can’t show up to the gym without that precious angel.

      So happy for you Justin & Mindy!! I can not wait to meet him!! Thank you for sharing your amazing journey with all of us. Just remember you can not spoil a baby;)
