Tyson Drake Reed

Baby boy is finally here! We are so thrilled to announce the birth of Tyson Drake, a healthy little guy.IMG_1466

8 lbs, 2 oz and 20 inches long.


Born April 4, 2012. Tyson shares a birthday with his name sake, my grandfather, Ty Hargrove.


I had a scheduled c-section and everything went smoothly. I remember the doctor pulling Ty out and saying he was a big boy. Carsyn was 6 lbs, 14 oz, so big to me was anything over 7 lbs. They held him over the sheet so I could get a look and I saw those big cheeks. He weighed in at over 8 lbs. He IS a big boy. It feels good to be justified in my discomfort. People would ask how I was feeling and I would say heavy. IMG_0456 On the way to the hospital as our family of almost 4.

Tony is enamored with his babies!



  1. Thank you for letting us hang out to welcome Ty into the family. He is perfect! He has a very proud big sister who chanted Tyson, Tyson, Tyson after I showed her his picture sent from his Daddy. It was very sweet!

  2. We love Tyson so much already. His name is beautiful and thoughtful. Sharing a birthday with his Great Grandpa Hargrove is icing on the cake. We are thrilled to have another "grand" baby. We love you so much. You are each a blessing to our lives. Love, Granny and PapaT
