Another one joins the brood

Big event last night. The better half gave birth to our fourth (and last) child at 2317 Pacific time. πŸ™‚

Kiran Tanuki is a pretty big boy – 8lbs 5.4oz, 21 inches long. His first name is Sanskrit, meaning “ray of light”. Second name is Japanese. Tanuki is a magical shape-shifting trickster from Japanese lore, and a real creature in Japan. As you may have guessed, we don’t go for everyday names. πŸ™‚

So looks like I’m going to have to write and publish more – all these kids are going to be expensive! But that’s ok. We’re pretty happy to have Kiran along for the ride. It promises to be a fun one. πŸ™‚

  1. He looks small for 8 1/2 lbs! Also, the Tanuki you are referring to feature prominent *ahem* bean bags in all their shape-shifting glory. All the statues are grotesquely oversized. Talking from experience here. Grotesquely.

    Hope that’s not what you’re trying to tell us πŸ˜› But congrats anyway!
