Wow, what a memorable couple of days! Julia started contractions on Thursday. She was such a trooper, she woke me up the next morning about 5:30 and said, "It's time to go." We headed to the Timpanogos Hospital (I was so out of it) and checked in at about 5:45.
The baby was delivered about 10:48am, which was great. We were surprised by his blond hair and decided he didn't really look like the two names we liked best. So we went back to the drawing board and decided we really liked McKay. And so, without further ado, here he is:
This is right after he arrived when they stuck him on the scale (maybe a bit obvious). He was 7 lbs 7 oz and 21 inches long.
Just as the baby was delivered, they wiped him a bit with a towel and set him on Juwels's lap. He almost immediately popped his finger in his mouth! We were impressed.
Here's his first bath.
Here he is all clean and wrapped up.

And here he is on day 2:
Here's baby and Mom just after Julia's "nice refreshing shower." They're sure having fun.That's it for now! the Manning family just got bigger, and man are we excited about our new threesome. :)
