He has a name!

Grant McKay




To me, he sure looks like McKenna! But I see McKay too in him. These were just taken by phone so I know we'll have more to come.

Talking with McKay today, I think they had the hardest birth experience I've ever heard. Except not the worst, because little Grant is doing so well. He does have a very high white blood count and they think it's because McKenna was running a fever during labor...so they are keeping a check on that. He also had very low blood sugar but so did his Uncle Logan when he was born and it went right away....so hopefully Grant's will too.

Doesn't he have such a cute name? I love it!

Who do YOU think he looks like?

Awww what a cutie! I was hoping they would go with Grant, I know McKenna has loved that name for a long time. And I love that they used McKay's name for his middle name, we used my husband's name for our first son's middle name too.

In the second picture he looks a lot like pictures and movies I have seen of McKenna as a young child. What a sweetie. I can't wait to see him with his eyes open, sometimes babies look like someone else entirely when their eyes are open.

This little guy is already so loved!

So exciting, congrats! In the first picture he looks like McKay and in the second one he looks like McKenna.
Lizzy had this problem with low blood sugar when she was born, it went right away and never came back.

I LOVE HIS NAME! Beautiful name for a beautiful baby!

And I think he looks just like McKenna! I just scrolled down to the picture of her in the hospital bed, and, yes, it's her face on that little baby of theirs!

Adorable! God Bless Grant McKay and his parents! God Bless you all!
Love and (many happy and grateful)Prayers,
Eileen

I always think it is hard to know who they look like right after they are born. Babies kind of grow into their features and sometimes it takes a little while to see which parent they favor. I do like the name Grant. It just sounds so masculine. So many girls have names that are shared with guys but I can't imagine a girl named Grant. I know that they must be really really happy to have him here. He is a very cute baby.
