oh, my dolly, for you are 2

8 Aug

i have tears welling now as i sit to write to you, baby doll.

i have few words.

it seems that the wee baby has grown up so fast and i fear i can’t call you my baby anymore.

you, simply, make our world go ’round and ’round.
hello in there

and topsy turvy
look at her legs

you ‘glow up’* our lives
sparkles in her eyes

you’re a silly goose

and such a tease
where's jamison?

you’d fly away with your dreams, if we let you

but you always come back down to us
sweat beads

here’s to you, as you age again, before my eyes
hot chocolate

oh, sweet james, you’ll always be my baby.

*family term for let the light shine on it

    I know the feeling. I keep looking at my monkeys (2 and 4) and thinking “who are you? and what did you do to my babies?!)
