Congrats to Eric & Lisa! Eric is such a sweet guy. I’m a member of Eric’s message board and he’s very active on it, so we know how anxious he (and Lisa, of course) was to have these babies arrive. I’m sure he’ll get a lot out of his time off to spend time with his wife and bond with his sons. 🙂 I love the names as well–Chase has been a favorite of mine for years.

That photo is so cute! 🙂 They are a good looking family.

I think Passions is having a male baby boom — with Eric’s twins, and McKenzie Westmore’s baby Maddox coming in a couple of months and Galen Gering’s baby boy coming in August.
