“What we didn’t know was that Hattie would be hitting a MAJOR milestone! We thought turning 1 was enough, but Hattie had other plans… As the guests enjoyed cake pops, balloon animals and face painting, my baby girl did something that totally surprised me; she took her very first steps!” – mama Tori on her youngest daughter.

“She says she’s Justin Bieber’s girlfriend. She also loves Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys. She is like 20 months going on 30.” – Tori on her daughter.

“For Hattie we decided to not find out the baby’s sex since we already were blessed with one of each. That’s a whole other story that I’ll save for my next memoir, but we were convinced that the baby would be a boy! There was a boy name we both have loved for years and decided on that. We didn’t even think of girl names. Well, you know how that turned out! We had a beautiful, no-name baby girl. In recovery afterwards, with her in my arms, I asked Dean to start Googling old-fashioned girl names. He started at ‘A’ and read through the alphabet, both of us shaking our heads the whole time. When he read the name Hattie aloud and we both looked at each other and said, “That’s it!” I looked down at her and she was such a Hattie. So we named her Hattie Margaret. Margaret, after my nanny who was like a second mother to me and had passed.” – Tori on naming her third child.
