A day of firsts (and pumpkin carving)

Today was a day of firsts’: Asia’s first time having syrup on her waffles, my (Ryan’s) first time actually making waffles by myself, our first time as a family (since we have been married) carving pumpkins, Liberty ate Cheerios and used a sippy cup of water all by herself. We also posted some photos of our pumpkin carving on our photo gallery [link above]. Enjoy your day! ~The Erickson Family

Liberty Amor Erickson

She is here! Liberty Amor Erickson, 9.01 lbs., 19 3/4 inches long, born at 3:21 p.m. today. She and Mom are doing great! We were going to be doing a C-section, but the little stinker flipped, so we went ahead and delivered normal. It so happens that Tami was having contractions anyway. Check out the Photo Gallery above for the first Photos of her. ~Ryan Notice This is an archived post.
