Bodin Albert Ericsson Blagsvedt was born in the early morning hours of August 4th to Jill Blagsvedt and Tom Ericsson of Stoneham, MA. He was born quickly and has been content and alert. He is already interested in his big brother Rein, and Rein is really excited to be a big brother! He will go by Bodin Blagsvedt, and we like to call him “Bodi” as well.
Bodin is an old Scandinavian name which translates as “refuge”. He gets his middle name from Tom’s father, Albert Ericsson, and Jill’s great grandfather Albert Schlegel. Tom’s father Al has helped many people as an army medic, a nurse, a volunteer fireman, and as a devoted father and husband. Jill’s maternal great grandfather, Albert Schlegel went by “Pa” because he thought he was too young to be a grandpa. He was a farmer in Northern Minnesota, and known as an outgoing person who loved people and children.
Say the parents, “We are all excited to have Bodin join our family. Cheers!”
