Bina and I are excited to celebrate the birth of our son, Ishaan Agastya Shrimali born Oct 3, 2010 at 3:04am, weighing in at 6 lbs 4 oz, 20 inches tall. Mom and Ishu are doing very well. In her words, Bina was blessed by her “genes and the universe” to have a very short labor. After it got going, only two and a half hours passed before we got to meet the baby! Bina was amazing though it all – the nurse told me she rarely saw a woman with as much grace during labor.
We’ve been settling into our routine of sleepless nights now that we are at home in Danville at the grandparents’ house. Every moment has been amazing and exciting – even in our most delirious state in the wee hours of the night.
We appreciate all of your calls, emails, and texts of love and support. We look forward to introducing Ishaan to all of you in person, but we’ve been advised not to have visitors for a few weeks while he builds some immunity. In the meantime we’re sending photos!
All of our love,
Sandeep and Bina
