It’s a boy!

This morning at 1:52AM my wife delivered our fourth child!

He was 7lbs 4oz, healthy baby boy. Mother and child are both doing great. What a tremendous blessing. It is definitely one of the greatest highlights of my life.

We have named him Judah. Here is a picture taken moments after his birth:

Judah Holmlund

There is actually a bit of a funny story, as it relates to Eric’s Tips. Last night I was just finishing up the Bonus video for the review I posted yesterday. I had literally just finished stating my conclusion on the Camtasia recording. The screen capture was still running, and at that very moment my wife yelled down the stairs that she was in labor and we needed to go NOW!

So I ended the capture, and clicked “save” as fast as I could 🙂

Needless to say, I got the recording done but haven’t had a chance to convert it to flash or upload it yet. But I will get it done as soon as we go home, and I’ll also be posting a preview of it on my blog.

Thanks for being a reader. I cherish your readership, and I’m glad I could share this joy with you.

Have a great day!

    Hi! Eric,
    500 comments for little Judah, this is unheard of, you can be proud of yourself and Judah, he is a beautiful kid. People like positive accomplishments, and they like life, and family, even some don’t admit this, but this is the proof!

    One more time, have a Merry one, relax and Happy New Year with prosperity, health, and fun!

    Congratulations!
    Just as the first gift of Christmas was a child so too has the lord blessed you.
    The second and third gifts of Christmas are almost as important Love and Hope!
    You already carry them through your life and I know you will teach Judah the same.

    Bless you and your family now and forever!

    Christmas Greetings,from Canada,
    to Brother Eric, and your wife.
    Congratulations to you both, as we say in this society, but glory to GOD for your little bundle of joy!
    I have written this poem,and I hope you(s) will like it:
    God gave you a little blessing/to love and cherish and hold/ God gave you a little treasure more precious than silver, or gold/ May you teach him of the Savior/ May the Lord become his best friend/And may you all rejoice in glory/ When your life in this world shall end. Well- we don’t expect that anytime soon, but we all know the 2 things we can’t get away from: death and taxes… Bro. Eric, I recently recieved a letter from a minister in Canada. He just returned from India. The whole family went on a missionary trip. The pictures he sent were very moving. They went to a leper colony in New Delhi, and preached the gospel, as well as ministering to some of their needs.It is very hard to even comprehend their way of life, some have missing fingers,and toes, and other body parts.
    The winters in New Deli are cold, and though it is only 10.00 for a blanket, many must do without. This leper colony is near a garbage dump that is shared with the pigs. It took me a long time to fall asleep last night, almost like I was haunted by the picture of one lone old man sitting on the ground, his knees to his chest, and his stubs for arms pointed upwards…I was sad that I was not a millionaire, or someone of means who could really help these people.However, every little bit counts. Even 10.00 will buy a leper some warmth on a cold winters night- and the knowledge that someone, somewhere cares for them, that although they are the outcasts of their society, somebody cares, somebody cares… Thank you Brother Eric. You are going where many of us cannot- or will not go. My prayer is that those who can give will give to your missionary causes, to help the Missionaries, so they can help the poorest of the poor… This is what Christmas is all about, really, isn’t it? I don’t know if you will be visiting any leper colonies, but I do know that their are many destitute people over there, I don’t know how to end this letter, I just thank God for someone like you who is willing to VOLUNTARILY leave their Comfort Zone, and possibly risk their lives, to help those who could never help themselves. Blessing to you, and your family,from Manitoba, Canada.

    Eric congratulations to you and your wife! Please consider breast feeding. There is some inconvience but it’s healthier and more natural for the baby. It’s also relaxing for your wife and she may need a little rest occasionally. God bless you all. May the baby thrive and prosper with a long healthy life. gcalia2

    Hi Eric,

    I’m responding to an email you & or your team have sent me re ‘Push Button Marketer’… Yes I did get your original offer and have also been sent this offer through other internet marketers, like yourself… at this point I’m not going to purchase this product because I have just purchased ‘Niche Blueprint’ even though you have advised us folks through your course NOT to purchase anything extra.

    If I had known that you were going to release this offer I may have waited and purchased, but Niche Blueprint was released on Jan 12th (first) and has a lot of very good info in it. I do not want to overspend (particularly in this climate) and more particularly as I’m Australian and the aussie dollar is at about 66 cents to the US dollar and as you have stated in the past – ‘don’t get caught up in the hype of initial purchase, as at some point in the future these products could be even less than launch price’

    So, I’m taking your advice…

    Regards, Graeme
