Our Daughter - The First Seven Months

Tags: baby, girl,

Dedicated to our beautiful baby daughter

Our baby girls a blessing, she brightens up our day

Except for when she’s crying, and doesn’t want to play


First time she rolled over, she chuckled with delight

Shame she chose to do it, in the middle of the night


We thought it so exciting, we discovered her first tooth

It’s not made her any happier, if I have to tell the truth


I sometimes have to pinch myself, to check that I’m not dreaming

I try to rock her off to sleep, in the hope that she'll stop screaming


We started her on finger food, new textures to explore

If she doesn’t like the flavour, she throws it on the floor


Before I end my little rhyme, I think I ought to say

She’s really not the monster, I jokingly portray


She’s cute and she’s a sweetheart, who sleeps right through the night

And wakes up every morning, so cheerful and so bright


I wrap my arms around her, and kiss her on the cheek

From under her long lashes, she takes a little peek


She gives her love like no-one else, she makes my life worthwhile

Never knew I could love so much, until I saw her smile


I lay her down to sleep at night, and turn the lights down low

God bless my little angel, I really love you so
