What do you think when you watch us each day?
You smile, you wave, you make your sweet little sounds
and show your love with pats and snuggles.
I hope you know how much we love you!
Each day you grow bigger - I want to stop the clock!
I know you will soon be a toddler,
your baby days gone.
I love to watch you grow and change
but there is a part of me that is selfish
and wants to keep you small.
I know I will miss your 3AM cries
I'll miss making your bottles
and I'll even miss changing your diapers.
I'll "let" you grow up and become whatever you decide to be
because I know that I'll always keep your baby days
in my heart, where I keep my most precious things.
