The Excuse for Canceling Brunch.

This morning I was supposed to have a relaxing ladies brunch with my friends, Kaberi, Cel, Alicia, and Gabby, but Kaberi canceled on us.  It was frustrating to have to change plans at the last minute and frankly Kaberi's excuse for bowing out seemed just a little flimsy to me...
Yep, she thought childbirth was a good enough excuse to miss out on some lovely gingersnap pancakes; I tell you that lady has some nerve.  Obviously, we were all terribly excited to check in on the happy trio and in lieu of brunch we hightailed it to the hospital this morning to help welcome handsome Vikas to the world! 
 I cannot even express how happy I am for this gorgeous family and Vikas is about as perfectly snuggly as a fourteen hour old baby can be.  He also has the longest eyelashes I've ever seen on a baby! Kaberi looked simply gorgeous and utterly contented.  Here are some of my favorite photos from out beautiful morning...

I figured out this handsome young man was on the way last March when we hosted Vik and Kaberi for dinner.  When our foodie friends suddenly started insisting my menu not include fish with high mercury levels or soft unripened cheeses, we became quite suspicious they had a little bundle of joy on the way!  I loved that our casual dinner became an impromptu celebration! Shortly thereafter, during a lunch at Kuma's Corner, Mr.Mysterio predicted their baby would be a Dog Show Judge! Months later we even threw them an LGC baby shower! So...it feels like we've been waiting for this little guy to arrive for quite a while!


 Vikas...meeting you was totally worth the wait.
Welcome to the world, little man.

What a pleasure to see this family surrounded by such well-deserved love, and to have had you capture it so beautifully! Thanks from a friend too far away to squeeze the little man (and his parents!) in person!

So glad you had a chance to peek Erin. He is such a doll! I hope you get a chance to see your friends soon. They are just the best!
