Wed 16 Jan
Our twin boys were born last Wednesday, 9 January at 1:41 and 1:48p EST. The first twin came home with us on Friday evening, but his brother had some complications, so he stayed behind in the natal intensive care unit for several days.
That was stressful for us, but thankfully we were finally able to bring him home yesterday evening. This picture Laura took last night shows them reunited at last; baby A on the left and baby B on the right.
Now that they’re both home, we feel like we can finally announce their names: Lafayette Quy Holder-Vinh (baby A) and Thiebaud Quy Holder-Vinh (baby B). Lafayette is a family name on Laura’s side; Thiebaud is after a painter whose work we both love; and Quy is a family name from my side. These names are a handful, right? Perhaps even more ridiculously, we plan on calling them just Laf and Tex.
Welcome home boys.
