Poppy Ronan Thompson

Baby Poppy was born April 8th at 5:35 am weighing 6lbs 11ounces. She is perfect and we are all so in love.

I know you all have been worrying, wondering, and waiting for an update. I promise to do so soon, but between breast feeding and not wanting to put her down, I have not had a free hand to type. We as a family are just taking some quiet time to soak this all in and of course are missing our Ronan, so very much.

Thank you for all your sweet comments, love, and thoughts. I promise to write when I get a little more time.

xoxo

  51. She is just precious! I couldn’t be any happier for you…what a blessing!! xoxo

  52. Aww..she is beautiful. Congratulations to all of you!!!

  53. Oh Maya I am so happy for you. You don’t know me and I have never written on here before but I have been following your story for a long time now and I tell just about anyone who will listen (including my mother who just jumped when I gasped after seeing your post). Your story has effectively changed my life. I am in nursing school right now and you and your family and this blog are the reason my goal is to work in pediatric oncology, because I want to make what little difference I can.

    Anyway my point was to congratulate you. Poppy is beautiful and I know she comes with a complex set of varying emotions but I’m so happy for you and I wish you as much happiness and joy as possible with the addition that it’s also perfectly okay to be as sad as you want. Best of luck with the upcoming sleepless nights and keep telling your story you never know who else’s life it will change!

    1. Very nicely written. I can never put my thoughts into words. Good luck with the nursing. We only had one bad nurse with my son, but it leaves an impression! Good ones are fantastic! You sound like you’ll be a good one!

  54. Welcome to the world Poppy!!(^-^)

  55. So happy that your Poppy girl has safely arrived! Much peace and happiness to you and your family! I believe that Ronan has sent her to you and will watch over his Poppy sister and family! Much love to you all! Can’t wait to read your next update, hopefully lots of pictures will follow.

  56. Congratulations! I’ve been awaiting word….so thrilled! She looks like Ronan too….glad all is well

  70. So adorable! Love her bright eyes and the hint of a little smile. What an adorable gift! I was wondering if you had little Poppy yet and hoped everything went smoothly as you don’t need any other troubles in your lives. But she is awesome! Just a question I’m sure we all are wondering… Does she look anything like the boys as babies or you or Woody? I always love seeing babie photos to see the hints of features that look alike…
    Enjoy soaking up all the love around you. I wish you had Ronan there holding her with you. But having a newborn in the house is so sweet and precious… I miss having a newborn in the house… Thanks so much for sharing her photo! We wish you all the best days ahead!!!

I hope you are all well and soaking up every moment of this new girl that will bring so many smiles to you!! Enjoy as much time as you want to take in this new ones personality (which we know is extra spicy), feel her love and have her learn about her brothers ๐Ÿ™‚ we are all so happy for you Thompson Family!!! I’m sure she already is feeling the Ro-love and knows how amazing he is and how special she is. Congratulations Maya!!!

  73. Congrats to you and your family!!! She is just beautiful and I love the name!!!

  74. Congratulations on such a beautiful little girl. So happy for your entire family. Enjoy and cherish each moment. All our love always

  143. You’ve made my Friday morning here in the UK. Seeing your beautiful family holding your precious Poppy. I know it must be a time of great joy tinged with the eternal sadness of Ronan not being with you in person. That’s just not right. I send you all the biggest hugs and much love.

  146. Hi Maya,

    I started reading your blog over a year ago and this is my first comment.
    I have been thinking and worrying about you for few days! Last night I saw the update abut baby Poppy on Taylor Swift website and danced with joy.Little Poppy is beautiful and perky and I am sure little Ro and Quinn and Liam must be over the moon to have their baby sister! Love to you and your precious family!

  147. Poppy is beautiful! Congratulations!

  148. Congratulations, she is beautiful!

  149. Congratulations Maya! Poppy is a wise little soul… it shows in those sweet eyes of hers. She is so blessed to have you as a mommy. And, her 3 brothers and amazing Daddy loving on her. Yay for Poppy!!!!!

  150. She is the most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen. Ronan must be so proud of all of you, and I know he’ll be the best big brother a girl can ask for. When I saw that she was born on April 8, I started crying, because that’s my best friend’s birthday, and she totally knew that Poppy would be born then. I know that Poppy won’t make the pain of losing Ro go away, but I hope that she helps all of you feel a little better. Poppy is perfect<3

  151. She beautiful. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  152. Congratulations! She is gorgeous!:)

  153. I’m in the middle of a really dull task at work when this pops up on my email, and now I’m crying!!! She is gorgeous beautiful perfect!!! Wishing you and your family sooooo much love, her three big brother are going to be bursting with pride xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Best. News. Ever.

  254. I’ve looked at the pictures again and again with so much joy. Life is so bittersweet…I know Poppy doesn’t make it all better but she sure is cute!
    I had my 2nd son after my husband was in an awful accident…and I just couldn’t wrap my head around the whole thing…life had become hard and I wasn’t sure I could handle a baby in my new world…until I met my son officially on his birth day. That day changed me…and I realized that the pain and suffering aren’t fair but the good times are cherished in a whole new way. I’m sure that makes sense to you too. I live more day by day than I ever used to…and though I miss who I was before…sometimes things seem simpler.
    Anyway — I couldn’t be any happier for all of you. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I know I don’t know you but somehow I feel like I know all of you…and as I knew you were in labor I just wanted so much to know how you all were…thanks for sharing all with us.
    Hope things are going smoothly with everything…she’s so perfect.

  255. Congratulations on baby Poppy. She is adorbale!

  256. Congradulations!!! I’m sure Rockstar Ronan hand picked her just for you. Take time and be happy.

  277. Awwww, she’s so darn cute!! And what a head of hair!!! Also your boys are gorgeous! You all look so happy, I know underneath you are very sad that Ronan is not there to meet and enjoy his new baby sister. Did you really name her Poppy? I’m so happy for your family and so very sad at the same time…keep writing you blog, I love hearing about your family and it keeps me aware of childhood cancer and what I can do to help!

  278. She is wonderfully beautiful! Kisses for the baby and for you! Much love!

  279. Maya and family,
    Wow!!! Congrats. She is just perfect. I was so excited when I saw your post because Poppy shares a birthday with me and with my grandmother! Very special. I don’t think it’s a coincidence. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Welcome to the world, special girl. Ro loves you so very much.
    Love always,
    Julia

  280. Congratulations! I am so happy for you all!

  281. Ah, she is such a beautiful baby! A little bit of Ronan, and so much special, unique, one in a million Poppy! No doubt you’re on an emotional roller coaster, but I hope you and your precious family will be able to enjoy this wonderful ‘babymoon’ for as long as you want to. The rest of us can certainly be put on the back burner and wait for further updates until you’re good and ready to share……but more pictures would be nice ๐Ÿ˜‰

  282. POPPY! You made it Earthside. How perfect are you, miss pretty young thing. Your brother, Ronan, will be lingering extra close-by in the days to follow. Keep those tiny peepers open for him; you will feel his presence all around. You are loved like crazy, girl. Blessings from the Gray Gang in Portland.

  287. Awwwwh!!! She is SO beautiful! Congratulations!! I’m so extremely happy for you all! Seriously her little face just made my entire day! ( :

  288. Welcome Poppy!! I imagine Ro is so proud of himself for gathering SO many people together to anticipate his baby sister’s arrival! He has probably been laughing and laughing at how many times his page has been “refreshed” on thousands of computers, these last few days. That stinker. I don’t even care, it was worth it. You, Baby Girl, are just perfection. Those eyes, THAT HAIR, that tiny face!! Wowzers! So sweet to see your big brothers oh-so-smitten!!! You are so RO-loved!!
