He made his entrance into this world at 25+ weeks but he came in screaming! Tristan Micah Lee Workman was born Tuesday the 27th weighing a hefty 1 lb 13 oz and being 13¼" in length. Although he is in NICU at Vanderbilt, proud sister, Kristen, brother, Brodie and extra proud parents Amanda and Thomas are so thankful he is doing well and thanks each of you for your prayers.
