Lafayette & Thiebaud

Lafayette & Thiebaud

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.



  1. Congratulations and welcome to your new life! It’s bound to be glorious. Great names – Laf and Tex look like lively fellows. Well done, New Family.

  2. Huge congrats to you and your family Khoi! It must be the most exhilarating and overwhelming time of your life! Beautiful boys! Best to you guys xoxo ~

  3. OMG – just saw this…congrats Laura & Khoi and welcome to the crazy word of twins 🙂 If you need any tips, let me know LOL. God Bless!

  4. So lovely, Khoi, and good news that Tex is home where he belongs. Also sweet to see the resemblance to their big sister. You and Laura sure make some beautiful children. Congratulations to all involved.

  5. Congratulations! The names are beautiful. I love the idea of calling a kid “Laf”.

    Wishing you much joy, contentment, and hopefully some time to sleep. 🙂

Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
