Behold the moment, the future is here.
Our family is getting bigger every year.
The new child has arrived, already loved by all.
The heart grows with enchantment felt
by our gift.
Hold this special child close to you,
to rock away the fears and kiss away the tears.
Take in every moment to share in the joy.
Let me shout from the hill tops so
everyone knows, our new child has
all ten toes.
As the years go by and each one grows,
theres a new experience to be had
A play a big game or off to collage they go.
As we let go and they are on their
own, never fret they'll soon be home.
Down the road each child will enlarge
the family with families of their own.
