Welcome, baby Kavya!

Mary Anne's sister Mirna just called to let me know that Mary Anne and Kevin's baby, Kavya, was born at 11:30 a.m. (Chicago time) this morning (May 18).

She weighs 7 pounds, 7 and a half ounces, and is 19 and a half inches long. Everyone concerned is doing well.

Kevin will be providing photos sometime in the next couple days; keep an eye on Mary Anne's journal for photos and more info. I assume that M and Kavya will be in the hospital for at least the next few days, since the birth was a c-section, so I'm guessing there won't be any direct updates from M 'til she gets home. And I gather that c-section recovery can sometimes be slow and difficult, so updates may be intermittent for a while even after she gets home. Or not; we'll see.

I was so pleased at the news that I totally forgot to ask Mirna to relay my congratulations. So: Congratulations! Yay, Mary Anne! Yay, Kevin! Yay, Kavya!

If y'all want to congratulate them as well, stop by the announcement in Mary Anne's journal and post a comment there.

Addendum, added a few hours later: I should have known that M wouldn't allow herself to be kept offline for that long. Turns out her hospital room has WiFi, so she's already posted a new entry of her own.

    baby squee!!!!

    Congrats to Mary Anne and Kevin and Kavya!!!

    Yes, C-sections take longer to heal than episiometies, which take longer than tearing and stitching afterward. (Um, was this more than you wanted to know?)
