Six years ago today our home expanded by yet two more feet. Those sweet feet belong to Mac. I wanted Grant to have a sibling close in age like Rachel and I are. We are 17 months apart. Grant was born on 5/10/04. Mac was born on 10/10/05 - 17 months apart to the day. How perfect!
And boy was he ready to get here! I was induced the morning of his birth day around 7:00 a.m. He made his debut at 10:19 a.m. And a big debut it was because not only was he the biggest of my four loves, but no one even had a chance to make it to the hospital yet. When everyone got there they walked in to see Chris already holding Mac. Also perfect. :)
We are so very thankful and grateful that the Lord has blessed us with six wonderful years with our Mackey. He is a ray of sunshine. He has the sweetest smile. He has a bit of a stubborn streak. He is his daddy's clone - he looks like him, runs like him, acts like him. He has the ability to make me laugh even when I'm angry at him. Did I mention he's his daddy made over??? haha! He is very affectionate, loves to give love and get love. His RaRa calls him her "Baby Love." He often calls my name saying, "MOMMMMAAA" as if he's going to ask for something like a snack or something to drink, then he'll pause and say, "I love you, Momma." He tells me he loves Jesus and won't go to sleep without saying prayers. He's ALL boy. He's very tough and has natural athletic ability. He has a love for baseball like his daddy did/does. At night when the boys watch a little TV to wind down, he will get irritated at his brothers if a baseball game is on and they don't want to watch it. He is very funny and makes us laugh although some of the things he does we probably shouldn't laugh at. But we do. ;) He's already a little heartbreaker (Heaven help us when he's a teenager) and prefers having girls as friends over boys.
He's our Mackey. And we wouldn't have him any other way.

These were his "stats" when he was born:
And these are some current ones:

Weighs 42 lbs. and is around 42 in. tall (perfectly square - heehee)
Wears size 6 shirt and size 5 pants
Shoe size is 12.5
Coffee is a must first thing every morning
Loves, loves, loves candy but is not much of a chocolate fan
Favorite foods are pizza and white donuts :)
 Happy 6th Birthday, sweet boy! We love you so very much!!!
