Hunter Bruce Bruschke

It's official and on the birth certificate. In keeping with our tradition of naming our boys after priesthood leaders that they can look up to (Spencer after Spencer W. Kimball and Tanner after N. Eldon Tanner) we decided to name this one Hunter after Howard W. Hunter. The middle name is after my Dad, Bruce, who is definitely someone to look up to and a great example to strive to follow.
The funny part about having our fifth child is that you would think we would remember everything. However, tonight I realized how big our California King mattress really is, or maybe I just forgot how small these guys start out. Yes, that little thing up by the pillows is Hunter.
So, I don't want to say too much more because Rachel is already telling me about her blogging plans regarding the whole event. Believe me, it is quite the story. Plus, we all know that we enjoy reading her blog posts, especially more than mine. Nevertheless, I did want to throw out at least one more picture.
