Announcing our new Baby Boy!

Here he is!  We are so happy and proud to share the news of our new baby and second son, Lakshman Hecker.  He arrived on February 2nd at 5:36 pm, weighing 5 pounds and 11 ounces. 


He looks just like Avinash as a baby.  Avinash was so excited that the baby really is 'twins of him' that he wanted to name him Avinash as well.  Then he told everyone at school that the baby's name is Krishna. 

Nandini cannot fathom that he has a name beyond 'the baby' and laughs like we are joking when he try to correct her. 

And us?  Yeah, we were totally those insane people who left the hospital without a name for our baby.  It took two more trips to the hospital to get it straightened out.  In our defense, picking a name is hard, especially a middle name.  I mean, you can literally choose anything you want.  We almost named him Lakshman Teen Wolf Kumar Avinash Krishna Hecker.  I still kind of like the way it rolls off the tongue. 

Life here is busy.  Feeding, changing, napping, bathing but mostly just trying to soak it all in.  We are all getting to know this wonderful new human being in our lives and falling in love more and more everyday.  We are super blessed to have tons of visits from friends, help with carpooling from schoolmates and the constant presence of my parents in these early weeks.

Despite some early blood sugar and jaundice Lakshman is super healthy now.  He passed his two week check up with flying colors (doctor Nandini agrees) and is not only back at his birth weight, but has gained a full pound.

  2. Beautiful baby! Congratulations! My daughter & son-in-law left the hospital without naming their son also,and it was kind of a pain. They had to write a letter to the state, and almost had to get a lawyer to change the name from "baby boy." Glad you got it worked out!

  4. So handsome! I'm still slightly perplexed you didn't go with Teen Wolf for a middle name.

  12. congratulations on your beautiful baby! I know what you mean about the name. I am 28 weeks and everyone keeps asking for a name, but I want to see her first before I commit to a name.
