Day 123 - Tatum Connor McCormick
Welcome the latest addition to the McCormick clan, Tatum Connor McCormick, pictured here in the arms of his "Poppy."
Connor was born Thursday, May 19, 2005, in Dallas to Heath McCormick and his sweetheart, Sherlyn. He weighed in at 7 pounds, 2 ounces, and was 19 inches long. Doctors pronounced him healthy and rarin' to go!
Online baby name dictionaries define his names like this:
Tatum = From Old English origin, meaning "cheerful bringer of joy."
Connor = From Celtic origin, meaning "wise, brilliant, desire, and wolf or hound-lover." (Wolf-lover? Uh, no. Hound-lover? Maybe.)
Ours is just one of many family events soldiers miss while they are deployed. We miss their sharing with us, too.
