Eric Hartley Ekborg was born via C-Section at 1338MDT. He weighed in at 9lbs 4oz, 20 inches long and a head circumference of 14.5 inches! Everyone agreed that the c-section was the right way to go.
Eric is named in honor of his uncle who died as an infant who would have turned 40 years old this past May and his maternal grandfather Hartley. The name also upholds our strong Swedish roots with a long line of King Eric’s of Sweden, one of whom was made a saint!
Both mom and baby are doing extremely well. His vigorous appetite already is sure to keep everyone busy for quite some time.
