We are very excited to welcome our newest Thompson family member, Naomi LaShaun! She was born on August 11, 2009, weighing a mere 5 pounds, 9.9 ounces, and was 19 inches long.
Naomi's name has a little significance. Naomi is a name that both Troy and Tamisha have liked for a long time (and passes all of the name tests: sounds good as a child and as an adult, is fairly easy to spell and pronounce), and LaShaun was Tamisha's middle name before she married Troy and took her maiden name as her middle name. Tamisha's family also has a tradition of giving the children a middle initial of L, which she wanted to keep intact.
Our darling daughter was born with a TE fistula and spent her first 20 days under the care of surgeons and nurses at the UMass NICU. Now she's home and doing well! Growing like a weed, eating constantly, and generally has her parents wrapped around her teeny little fingers!
