This is Anjali Claire, born Sunday October 7th. 7 pounds 12 ounces and 19.5 inches long.
She is our first child and all of us are doing terrific.
Her first name means “divine offering” in Sanskrit. I’m United Methodist clergy, and my spouse is a Baron Baptiste yoga instructor, so we felt that her name was not only beautiful but reflective of both our passions.
I’ll be on paternity leave from my local church for a while, but expect some 3am blog posts if inspiration strikes (and both arms are free…)
And yes, she is perfect.
(That is a lightsaber from a Build-a-Bear that my youth gave me last year…this is what happens when I watch her!)
