Were you waiting for some news?

Well, here it is: Anjali has arrived!

She was born Monday, July 9, 2007 at 10:27 p.m.
weighing 8 pounds, 1 ounce
20 inches long

Here's the story from Cagey herself, "I started having contractions at 4pm ish. We were at the hospital by 6 and no induction was needed after all. Sure, she looks like any other squashed up newborn, but I'll kick anyone's butt who actually SAYS that. :-) I think she's gorgeous, that's my story and I am sticking to it! Hee hee."

Congratulations, Cagey, X and Arun!

(This is Average Jane, by the way. Even Cagey isn't gung-ho enough to blog from her hospital bed the morning after giving birth, although she did text-message the quote above.)

I'm so glad (and envious) at how quickly it all went. I'm smiling and giving you dirty looks at the same time, lol.

All kidding aside, congratulations!

Let's see : 7 pm induction, 10:27 birth - 3 1/2 hours of labor - you beat me at 4 hours! My pushing was 5 minutes though.

Mazel Tov to you all! Can't wait to see the beautiful girl.

Welcome to our world Anjali!

So excited she is here and Tyler will have a playmate just a month younger - woo hoo (yes I am being selfish!!!)

Hope you are recovering nicely and will be waiting patiently as possible for pictures of the sweet baby. I don't care what anyone says, I think newborns are cute even squishy ones :-)

Welcome to the planet little Anjali, we're glad you are here.

Goofy Girl said...

Anjali didn't want to be told what to do (induced). Sounds like her mama! (wink)

Congrats to the whole family. Big fun!!!!!!!

Ping me when you're home and settled. No rush. We'll grab some Korma Sutra and come over.

Stephanie said...

I couldn't wait... I snuck over to your Flickr page for a sneak preview of Anjali, and oh my lord she is GORGEOUS!!! Not at all squished-up newborny. :-) And the pic with Arun is so cute... looks like he's already set to be a good big brother.

Sister Big said...

I can't wait to see her. And I can't believe how fast you got this out on the Internet.

This is Dorothy. It looks like I have to use my Google account now.
