It all started the moment you opened your eyes.
I was in shock, a boy, what a surprise.
Your little toes wiggled,
I pictured in my mind your perfect little giggle.
You were something so new to me,
But I was so proud to have a piece of me
That I could hold forever,
You would always be mine.
I thought to myself
I hope you will grow up to be caring and kind.
Dressing you in the cutest clothes I could find.
You stared at light so much
I’m surprised you’re not blind.
Through all the spit up and mess
We always did our best.
With all the moments we shared
We make an amazing pair.
You’re getting so big
I can hardly believe it.
Well I can,
I’m just shocked to see it.
You’re learning so much,
And talking a bunch,
Bouncing all over the place
With the world’s biggest smile on your face.
And in my heart you will always have a place.
Your mom is what I will always be.
We are linked in the most amazing family tree,
We will always have a bond like no one could know,
and who would have thought,
That it would all start with your wiggling toes.
