Third Times A Charm

We are so happy to welcome GARRETT OTTO HOOPES in to the world!He arrived on May 24th weighing in at just over 7 lbs.Brother and sister are over the moon to have him home. Shelby can't believe that there really was something in mom's stomach besides all the food she was packing away!His middle name, just incase you are wondering, is a family name. My grandfather, whom I adore, is Harold Otto, and his dad was Otto. Harold passed away last year and I wanted to use his name, in some form, for our son. I LOVE that Garrett will always have this connection to one of my favorite people ever!

Ashley, what a wonderful name!I loved reading about his birth and have been seriously considering the epidural from the beginning at the time you did. He looks like the Gavin/Dalton mold. I love seeing "your" big smile in Shelby; she is adorable. I'm glad everything is going well. Love, Nicail

Your family is so cute! And who is that good looking Mountain Man in the photos? Garret looks so precious, I can't wait to meet him.

Congratulations Ashley and Gavin! I am glad you succumbed to the epidural! I seriously can't believe how BIG Dalton and Shelby are. You look great as always. Take care, Mandy
