Olivia Whitney Erickson was born on January 8, 2010 at 8:42pm! She was 7 lb 14 oz, 19 1/2 inches long. I was induced at around 9am and things progressed smoothly until around 6:30pm when the epidural decided not to work anymore. Yikes! But, we made it through and are loving our new little sweetpea. She looks a lot like Charlotte did when she was born, except with an added bunch of dark hair on top and some extra cheek volume. Thusfar she has an insatiable appetite and does not share her mom's love for sleep. We are working on that.
First shot out of the womb. So cold! The coldest yet of the year.
Another Daddy's girl
Relaxing at Parkland Hospital. She'll be able to say she was born at the same hospital where JFK died.
