Naomi raced into this world at full speed and hasn’t slowed since. Her mom/Anna had gone into labor, Maxx was strapped into his car seat ready to race to the Birthing Center and dad/Nat went back in to get mom. Mom said, “I’m not going anywhere.” Aunt Laura shows up. Dad says, “Get Maxx.” Laura takes a minute to extract Maxx from the car, goes back in the house and Nat is handing a baby to Mom. All sorts of names suggesting “speed” were proposed, but Naomi Elizabeth, aka Nomi, was chosen a few days later.

Maxx and Naomi, now at 5 and 2 (excuse me, 2 and a half) recognize who their best friend and chief competitor is. It’s a joy watching these two in the world.
