This week’s Prose for Thought poem is for my baby girl who will be celebrating her first birthday on Monday:
Little one snuggled up so nice and warm
Can it really be a year since the day you were born?
That newborn baby has gone forever
She’s now a little girl – so big, so clever
With wobbly steps and a smile so bright
Exploring the world, full of delight
Giving sloppy kisses and sticky pats
“Mum-mum”, “da-da” – love to hear her chat
Always on the go, following big sister about
Grabbing at the toys which causes Jessica to shout!
Making mess at dinnertime, food is everywhere
All round Sophie’s face and even in her hair
At bedtime she still wants to have sleepy baby cuddles
And I enjoy those moments of precious bedtime snuggles
How can it be my baby girl is now turning one?
Happy birthday Sophie, my little bundle of fun.
