Our baby turns two

Happy Birthday Precious. Its hard to believe that two years ago we got you as this tiny little bundle, so quiet and so serene. And now you drive your mother crazy!!! Thank you, for all the wonderful moments that has bought your mother and me unmitigated joy and happiness. We look forward to these moments for the rest of our lives.

Our wish for Sidharth, this excellent song by Lee Ann Womack, I hope you dance

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Reconsider
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance
(Where those years have gone)

(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

Sourin and Seema,
Besides the party being well-organized, Siddharta is a real adorable and loving kid.

Reminds me of this quote which I read a few years back (so true about you guys)...

"Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad"

Have fun!

Hi Sourin
Happy birthday to your son Sidharth. I remember when my little boy was 2, he was just so cute. He is still a darling little boy but not a baby anymore. Sometimes I miss that little boy.

This is why you need to have as many experiences with your child as possible. The sense of joy and wonder at every new experience is priceless. All too soon, they become bored with the world.

Thanks Michael. Yes, friends have told me the same and in some way I do feel like the baby that he was is grown up. With age and comprehension the sense of novelty is gone. Maybe its just me, but goo goo gaa gaa give me the warm and fuzzies.
