A new year. A new life.

Posted on January 13, 2011

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.

With his cousin Rhea.

Shortly after his first bath.


One day old.

Two days old.

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.

The day we got to bring him home. He looks happy. 3 days old.

After a bath at home. Four days old.

Five days old.

Six days old.

Dreaming about something good I bet. Seven days old.

Whenever he wakes up he looks at us like this. Love it.


He does this often too. Eight days old.

Nine days old.

    Love all the pics of my gorgeous little nephew! The one of him with the expression on his face when he wakes up just cracked me up. And the one of him crying totally looks like you as a baby! Everyone single one put a smile on my face. :)
