Jaksin Wade Hobgood, son of Michael and Samantha Hobgood, joins his brothers, Lachlan and Aedan.

Michael and Samantha Hobgood were hoping to have a baby born during the winter months. With two sons celebrating birthdays just two weeks apart each August, it was a chance for the couple to make the holiday season a little more special.

They just didn't realize how special their next child's birth would become.

At 4:38 p.m. Jan. 1, 2013, the couple welcomed into the world their third son, Jaksin Wade Hobgood. Weighing in at five pounds, 10 ounces and measuring 18 3/4 inches at birth, he became Elmore County's first child of the new year. He joins two older brothers, Aedan, 5, and Lachlan, 16 months.
