Jess! He is absolutely beautiful. I love his name. And I'm sure Levi will adjust in no time. My son was 17 months old when his little sister arrived and after a few days he was in love. 4 months later and he still adores her...he is constantly kissing her and singing to her and it is heart melting. Congrats, mama!

This is my first comment on your blog, but I am an avid follower. Griffin James is as beautiful as he can be. My first reaction was, Wow, he looks like sweet Cora with that dark hair and those cheeks! His name is precious. I am from a small town called Griffin, Georgia, so I'm a bit partial to his name. I am so thankful that I just randomly stumbled upon your blog two months ago and I have been following ever since. As so many people before me have said, you are such an inspiration to so many and I thank God for you and your family. I may never get to meet you in this lifetime, but I am so thankful that I "know" you. God bless you and your entire family (in heaven and on earth) with this wonderful new addition of Griffin James!

I already sent a "congrats" comment but I just clicked on your blog while running through my nightly ones and I saw the picture again I was surprised at how much he resembles the beautiful Cora!! Just from her pictures that you've shown of course, but he's just a gorgeous newborn and I had to comment again about the Cora resemblance!

Congrats! I'm curious about the name! I love it and it is on our short list of baby boy names (if we were to ever have another boy). It is my mother's maiden name.

Congrats on your handsome bundle!

Funny how the dates turned out.

September 20th is the birthday of my twin girls (they just turned 7). We get to celebrate with them :)

And, Cora was born on the exact same day as my son Nathan (3/5/08) and I know that they celebrate together in Heaven.

Congratulations and enjoy!

Hugs,
Trisha

Congratulations Mac family! Griffin is just beautiful and perfect, and I'm sure big brother will be in love in no time! My youngest 2 boys are 20 months apart and the very best of friends/partners in crime! ;) God Bless over all of you as you transition to having 2 little ones in your house at the same time. I'm certain Cora is smiling down on all of you, loving you from above! Can't wait to see more pics!

Hooray and a hearty congratulations on your new beautiful bundle of boy!!!!! When I first saw the photo it took my breath away how much he resembles your sweet baby angel Cora! Wow!!! Sooooo precious and just a blessing! Enjoy this special time and rest as much as you can. I think his name is just awesome!! My son has James for a middle name too and your little man was born on the same day as a sweet girl I used to babysit but also has her angel wings too, maybe she and Cora are rejoicing together?! Continuing to pray for you all!

Congrats. Love the name. He looks absolutely scrumptious in this photo - love the cheeks :-) I'm curious if you had a fast labor - I know you posted on Tuesday, so I'm thinking it was fast??? (the labor and delivery nurse in me speaking)
Blessings to your sweet family!

Congrats!!! My older son wasn't very fond of his new brother for the first eight months & now they play together all the time so don't stress if Levi doesn't think he's all that great right away.
