Oh little one, slow down.
Stay in Mommy’s arms a bit longer,
For time is slipping by like sand in an hour-glass.
The busyness of life, robbing precious moments sitting on the floor with you;  reading, playing patty-cake, blowing raspberries on your soft tummy.


Oh little one, slow down.
It’s just not fair for you to grow up so quickly
Toddling away from me at every chance,
arning new things at every turn.


Oh little one, slow down.
Give Mommy a chance to catch her breath from this whirlwind called life.
Stay a baby for a moment longer,
Let me draw you close to my heart and drink in your sweet baby smells.
Let me feel your little hand clasp mine.


Oh little one, slow down.
For you are my last baby,
The perfect final puzzle piece in our big picture…..
God knew we needed you to make our home complete.


Oh little one, slow down…..
even if only for but a moment in time.

Oh little one, please slow down, for I need to hold you in my arms just a little longer…..

Oh little one, how I love you……


xoxo Mommy
