Parents Ring in the New Year with New Bundles of Joy
Others rang in the New Year with a new addition to their families.
Stephanie Rogers welcomed her new bundle of joy at 12:23 New Year’s morning at Sanford hospital.
Her third boy, Jeremiah David, is named after his grandfather.
“He was due on Christmas Eve, so I was kind of hoping he would come before Christmas,” said Rogers. “So, yep, there’s a reason he’s big!”
Just a few hours later at Avera hospital, David and Olga Sturzenbecher welcomed their first child.
His original due date was January 14.
He arrived at 6:35 a.m., weighing 6 pounds, 15 ounces.
For the first few hours of his life, he was without a name.
But mom and dad finally decided on one.
“As of a couple hours ago – a couple minutes ago – his name is Alexander Ryan Sturzenbecher,” said Olga. “We still down know how we’re going to spell that yet,” added David.
