Lincoln Chad Ericson

As soon as we found out we were going to have a little boy we decided to have his middle name be after his Grandpa Wright who was diagnosed with brain cancer about 18 months ago. After much discussion and a little bit of disagreement over a middle name for Lincoln, we decided to ask Grandpa Wright which name he liked most for a middle name. Grandpa's name is Chadwin Spencer Wright and all 3 names were discussed at one point or another. Grandpa decided that Chad was the name that he liked best and that's what we decided to stick with.

Very nice. I hope your enjoying your little tv star. If you come visit, we will watch him while you go out on a date. I think the middle name selection was well done. Hopefully, we can see the whippersnapper sooner than later.
Enjoy.
