Such a grown up name

Enrico Vincent, such a grown up name
given to our baby boy As you continue to
grow into it may your life be filled with joy
Your illuminating smile warms our hearts, and
also the coldest of days Blessed are we to
have you in our lives in oh so many ways
Each night before we fall asleep we make
sure that we pray We ask the Lord to watch
over you each and everyday
