Milestones:: Bittersweet

My eight-month-old cutie learned to crawl this past week. About this I have these sentiments:

Short is the Time

Short is the time
Hands are little
Grins are toothless
And words are few

Bittersweet it is
To see milestones reached
These little ones grow
Becoming their own

A proud mama am I
But tighter I do hold
His chest to mine
Embrace its rise and fall
His head on my shoulder.

For short is the time
A baby is a baby
Mama is his world
Sweet innocence reigns...

So today I will snuggle
I will get down and play
For overnight my baby
Will become a man.
