back again..

It has been more than 2 years since I stopped blogging. My usual update to all the friends is, "everything is just the same", but not this time. Life has completely changed. I am a father now - it feels very strange saying that because in a way I still think I am 20 and still in college. My baby girl is going to be two years old in two months or so and it has been a wonderful two years.

I never imagined it will be this much fun and I will adore her so much. I am one of the youngest in my family and haven't been around babies. So I don't have a clue how to handle them and how to play with them. I think there are two kinds of people - those who are absolutely fantastic with kids (and I envy them, it is a great gift) and those who don't seem to know the right things to say or do around kids (looks aloof, but that is not the case, I know now). My wife is one of them in the first category and I am in the second. But to my surprise, I learned quickly on the job with my girl, I wasn't afraid to hold her when she was too small and playing with her is really the highlight of my day. It is an absolute joy and unimaginable fun - I already said that, but it is true.

Everything revolves around her these days. Every small thing she does is ultimately cute and now the baby log must read like an obscure Guinness world records like the first time she fake coughed to first time she walked to first time she climbed on a chair to the first sentence and first song (it might be a song only for us though, but it is the sweetest) and on and on.

With such major events every day and my usual busy work also which hasn't changed much in years, I don't seem to realize time going by. So one of the new year's resolutions is to revive this blog. I hope to keep this up and not succumb once again to my chronic procrastination.
