    At last I'm not alone at Bangalore anymore! Krithi and Jaagruthi got back to Bangalore a week ago. It took me a couple of days to get used to the fact that I wasnt going to be alone anymore, well for a while at least! There was a fair amount of work to be done to set the house right, unpack many boxes and arrange the stuff in them into cupboards/shelves etc. Then there was the small matter of a few thousand clothes in various hues and colours belonging to Krithi which had to also, obviously, find a prime location to sit in. Amma had also come in from Madras and they both got the house in order. I insensitively ended up staying at office till 830-9 pm or so! It does feel great having them back though. At least it wont be me talking to myself or the walls ... or just plain silence!

    Over the last couple of days, Jaagruthi seems to have got used to having me around. For the last three months it has mainly been weekend trips and so obviously she hasnt registered me in her tiny brain. But now that I manage to be with her for a stretch typically in the mornings, I think she recognizes me. Apparently, most new fathers have the privilege of being called uncle by their kids since the newborn doesnt see the father that frequently. I hope I wont be called so.

    She has in fact also started smiling at some of my antics, which typically include saying something and vigorously shaking my head. That extracts peals of laughter from her. Krithi started it first and Jaagruthi really loved it. I do however carry out my experiments on her. Instead of saying something and vigorously shaking my head, I tried just saying something without shaking my head. That didnt elicit any laughter. Then I didnt say a thing but shook my head. That drove her crazy and she started laughing. So she laughs regardless of what we say!

    Allegedly she turns when her name is shouted out. I tried it a couple of times and she seemed to respond. I then screamed out some random word and she turned. Then I shouted my brother's name and she turned again. I'd love to have seen these experiment fail, but unfortunately they succeeded and that means that she isnt responding to the sound of her name, yet.
