Walter James Behrends
September 13, 2011
7 lbs. 4.7 ounces
22 inches

The name:

Once again we had a difficult time deciding on a name before actually seeing this little guy. To be honest we went in to the hospital with out a real list of names to pick from. Everything we liked someone else hated. We had a feeling it would come to us when we saw him.
Immediately after being handed my perfect, nameless baby the doctor asked me what we were going to name him. After hearing that we were still working on it he gave us a deadline of 24 hours. After that he got to name him. It took only a minute. Jon and I looked at each other and we knew, he needed a strong name, a "manly name." What better than to name this baby after the strongest men in my life. My dad and grandfather. As soon as Jon said it my doctor looked at me and told me he loved it. It felt right, it fit.
