He is Here!!

We are thrilled to announce the birth of our beautiful baby boy, McKay Stephen Marchant!! He arrived yesterday, April 16, on a rainy afternoon, at 4:36 PM. The labor and delivery process went as well as can be expected. We are just so happy that he is here! Unlike Ty, who was calm and mellow from the moment of birth, this guy came out screaming! I guess he felt like he had to make his presence known since he was #2! He weighed in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces, and measured 19 inches long. He is absolutely perfect in every way, and I am completely in love!!

Just a funny note, I found this picture of Tyler that was taken at some point during his first day on earth, and I think it looks identical to McKay, down to what my brother calls their "Harry Potter" birthmarks on their foreheads! I mean, seriously, could this not be the same kid? The only difference between the two (which is not evident in this photo) was that Ty had red hair, and McKay is blonde.
