My baby is almost 5 years old

 

One day I was holding a little baby and he looked up and smiled at me, and mumbled a few syllables, and I sang him a little song.

Then a week went by and then a month and a year and then another.

 

We played with rattles, then with blocks, and then with puzzles and Lego. Now he plays computer games.

One minute he was scribbling lines and circles now he writes and signs his name.

I lean down to kiss him and bump my head on his

His pants are getting way to short, when did he get so big?

 

He used to want to cuddle and cling on to my hair

Now he plays ball with sweaty boys and runs down hills without a care.

 

My baby is almost 5 years old and I dare not blink.
