First and foremost - CONGRATULATIONS!

I bet this is even better than your 100th Blog-Post.

The name game is pretty funny. My wife was so scared after the birth of our first child (I now have four) that I was going to name it - while she was out cold. I teased my mother for months that if there was a Whoopi Goldberg why couldn't there be a Whoopi Greenberg (My last name is Greenberg, obviously). It was amazing. On that note - it is wise to take care of that rather quickly - as my wife who is affectionately now know as "female" Maiden Name - instead of Theresa, because the time limit for putting that name on the Birth Cert came and went with no name - and now her official Cert says – Female and her maiden name – no given name…

Should have saw the guys face at customs, when we got back from our Honeymoon 

The birthing goals sheet is hilarious!

Andy said...

um, on the birthing stats, they have your name spelled wrong.

gabriel ryan said...

the anecdote of 'becoming-a-daddy-part-deux' is awesomely comical/amazing. congrats! and when lost for names, rhyming always goes well... like burm sturm... or sharlurm sturm... or rowandurm sturm... just a few to chew on.

Chase said...

Ryan and I are so EXCITED for you both! Congrats! What a gorgeous baby girl! We look forward to meeting her soon. Much love and many blessings! - Chase & Ryan

my brothers girl is named abigail grace. ive always liked the name Kaitlyn, um. lisa is one of my favorite names, but im biased. You could stick to the "b's" (i hate that) and go with brenda, or beatrice (betty). I think the name Lindsay is cool. Cassandra is kinda cool.

She is precious and I think maybe looks a little like baby cousin Briella. Congrats to all of you and thank you for the pics and vidoes, I've been checking my email about every ten minutes =-)Pretty funny they spelled Sturm wrong, but I guess she should get used to it early. It won't change until marriage, unless she marries someone with another crazy last name to spell =-)
Love you Baby Sister "Strum"!
Aunt Tam

Horn said...

Awesomeness. It looks to me like you've already named her. Sweet Pea is a great name. Or Olive Oyl. Your next son could be Wimpy.

Jonathan said...

What a brilliant girl you have! When you asked her to open her eyes she did it right on cue! She is ridiculously cute. If you are still tossing names around, she could do a lot worse than Jonne Beach Sturm in honor of her uncle Jon. Actually, if you name her that I'll have to kill you. Congratulations. Malena wants to "hold it" right away.

Joe said...

Now THAT is a beautiful baby!! Congratulations to both of you - you did good! Looked to me like she was hungry.
I have a name suggestion - you know Jo can be a girls name, too. No, just kidding. How about this for a rhyming name - Marmaderm Sturm.

THE assistant said...

Congrats you two! Bring her to the Freedom House sometime soon. : )

Andy said...

ooooh, wimpy. afterall, he'd probably have your calf's

Andy said...

i meant, it, i mean she. im never good at that.

Britton suggests the following girl names:

Sister - Like from the movie "Where the Heart Is" very catchy, the character by this name dies in a freak tornado and leaves her house to a young single mother who had her baby in a Walmart

Champagne - So classy.

Cinderella - Why not! I mean we even live kinda close to Disneyland and you know she is going to go through some sort of princess phase eventually!

Dorkus - Biblical names are so hot right now.

Boo - Like the little girl in Monster's Inc. SO CUTE!

I hope you'll really consider my suggestions, I child's name is so important! She will be called by it for the rest of her life.
