Porter came to us at 11:20am. The labor was approximatly 4 and 1/2 hours. He was 7 lbs. 8.6 oz. He was 19 1/2 inches long. He was born totally natural and still had a perfectly round head. We were surprised to see his blonde fuzz.
The day was Wednesday, January 24th, 2007. At 5:30 in the morning, Angela went to Willamette Falls Birthplace to be induced. They started the process about 6:45 in the morning. By 11:20am...we became proud parents of Porter Scott Hoopes (who we think is the most perfect child EVER!!!)
In a nut shell, we met at Ricks College, dated for 4 months, got engaged, and less than a year after we met, we were married. We both finished our schooling at Ricks and then Weber State. Brandon went on to the U of U. 51/2 years after being married we had our Porter and 21 months after that, we had our Hudson. In less than two years we doubled our family. We now have added another little boy, Brody, to our growing family. We live in Portland, Oregon where Brandon enjoys going to work and I enjoy staying at home with the boys.
