Grady Dirk McMinn is Here

Grady Dirk McMinn in here! He was born on May 20, 2011 at 11:04 A.M. He weighed in at 8 lbs 11 oz and was 22 inches long. Both he and Amanda look great and are doing well. He looks just like Brock when he was born and I'm sure in a couple months he'll have just as much hair and be just as crazy.






Amanda is amazing! There's no way that I'd be able to do what she does. I'm sure neither of those comments come as a surprise to anyone though.







Brock wanted nothing to do with Grady right after he was born. Brock screamed and pushed Grady away ever time we tried to get him to hold Grady but he wanted to watch everything the nurses were doing to him. Today he made a huge step and gave Grady a hug but then he pushed him away.








Obviously, Camryn was the most excited one in the family about the new baby. She is 100% a mini version of Amanda. She really likes being the only girl, and for obvious reason.





Trent is the best big brother. Brock loves him and wants to do everything that he does so we're sure it will be the same with Grady.

A Super-Duper Congrats on your newest addition! Grady is such an adorable little peanut!! It's amazing how fast these kiddos are growing!! Enjoy every moment!
I was so surprised to see that y'all named him Grady! The name Grady is a big "family name" in our family! Did y'all know that Erin has a little boy named Grady too? He'll be 2 yrs old in September!
Keep up all the great work...McMinns are Rock'in!
