It's a boy!!!!!
On Monday December 11, 2006 at 8:48 pm my son Eric Michael was born. He weighed 9lbs 7oz and was 22.5 inches long. Eric is actually the first boy born into both sides of the family in several years. On my side, a boy hasn't been born into the family in over 60 years. My husband was the last boy born into his side of the family in 30 years. Regardless we are very happy to have a healthy baby.
Depending on which source you check, the name Eric is Scandanavian and means "Ruler of rulers" or "Ever ruling". I've liked this name for quite a while so the regal meaning is just an added bonus for me.
Right now I'm busy with the baby and with a toddler who is adjusting to the baby, so I may not be able to post for a while. I do have articles in the works but it's hard to type with a bottle in one hand and a newborn in the other - I'm just not that talented! But I will be back, hopefully in the New Year.
In the interim, I hope you will enjoy this article on Royal Christmas Broadcasts.
Seasons Greetings to you and your family.
