Welcome Elliott Erickson!

Elliott Helaman Erickson was born June 19, 2013 at 9:59 p.m.  I was scheduled to be induced that day and went in at 6 a.m.  They started the drugs at 9 a.m, and by 9 p.m. there was really no progress made after a whole day (of no eating).  This was very frustrating!  But after many prayers and begging the little guy to come out and join the world, he decided it was time and was ready within the hour.  He had a healthy, loud cry and was 8 lbs, 3 ounces at 21 inches long. 
The girls came to visit us at the hospital.
They didn't know what to think at first, but now love him to pieces and never stop showering him with kisses.  At two weeks old now, he is 8 lbs 14 oz. (51%) and 21.25 inches long (68%).
Charlotte and Olivia have also started their summer of activities with dance class on Mondays.  Olivia is in a creative movement ballet/tap combo class with about 20 other kids, and Charlotte is in a small ballet class with six other 6 year olds.  Both classes suit them perfectly and they love it.  I was very worried about this but both were very enthused about showing me all their moves at home.
