Firstly, I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year 🙂

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday break. I just wanted to share some exciting news with you. My wife Gurjeet and I were blessed with a beautiful baby boy, Akaal Singh, just before the new year. I can’t really explain to you what it feels like. It’s so many different changes and experiences at once. I am incredibly grateful and feel very fortunate to have him as my son.

Below I’ve shared some photos from the first week or so of his life. If you’d like to keep up with photos of him and our family, I hope to be updating my personal Flickr page, as well as a blog I’ve setup for him at akaalsingh.wordpress.com.

I look forward to sharing more with you in this coming year. 🙂

One of the first photos I took of him as soon as he was born.

A trick I figured out that got him to settle down when I would change his diaper, nose to nose.

One of my favourite things to do, swaddling him.
