Whit took Lee on his first fishing trip and they had so much fun. Such a big boy going on his first guy's weekend. He caught lots of fish and even brought one home in a cooler that now stares at me with beady eyes every time I open the freezer. My life as a mama of boys! Whit says he is worried that I won't have anything to do when all the boys go off for the weekend one day. I assure him that I will be able to find something to fill my time! So thankful for a sweet daddy and two granddaddies that love on these boys.

It has been a happy 1st month since our sweet Mac has been here. It has gone by so fast - so true that the days can be long but the weeks and months go by so quickly. I am so thankful for this little boy. He is still tiny and new but is starting to wake up a little more. Hopefully I will get around to thinking of a cute little thing to show how many months he is, but for now here are some pictures from his first month.
The big boys LOVE their little brother and get so excited to see him.
(even when they have to sneak into his room while he is napping)

We had a happy, fun, candy filled, SUPER Halloween! Lee was Spiderman and played the part well. Brant was Ironman but we just called him Muscleman. The Hunters had a bonfire with hotdogs before and smores after trick or treating. Plus, a little scary, spooky story telling told by Webb. Brant wasn't too interested in anything other than the pumpkin rice krispy treats but Lee was very impressed with all the candy he scored. And sweet little Mac was just along for the ride and didn't make a peep.

Malcolm Hunter Smith
He is here and we love him so much. Mac was born October 8th and weighed 6 pounds 9 ounces. He is a little thing with a head full of dark, wavy hair. Before he was born I wondered if I would be able to love another baby as much as Lee and Brant. That was the silliest thing - my heart has exploded for this little boy and I couldn't imagine our family without him. How does that happen so fast?
Mac is named after my great grandfather who was also a Malcolm Smith but we called him Papa. Papa died right before I was born but he was always someone special to me because my great grandmother, Mama, was one of my very favorite people and also because Papa was like a dad to my mom. Hunter is after Whit's best friend Mitch Hunter. Whit and Mitch were born two weeks apart. They are as different as night and day but they have been best friends ever since. We are so happy for Mac to share the Hunter name.
I keep looking around at all of these boys and get so excited thinking about all of the fun they will have and hope that Lee, Brant & Mac will be the best of friends. Lee, the biggest brother, keeps saying that he was right because he thought it was another boy all along. Brant, the littlest big brother, is super excited to have a new baby. We have to keep an eye on him or he will show Mac just how excited he is! I am so thankful for our family and feel like the luckiest girl to be surrounded by all of these sweet boys.
