Precious Boy

Precious, precious boy.

You were born too early and you were not much bigger than your daddy’s hand but I worried more about your mommy then because she was my baby and I knew only her.

I didn’t know you yet.

I know you now.

I know the sweet and warm curve of your neck.


I know that mischevious smirk.


I know your infectious, bubbly giggling.


I know your intense concentration.


I know your love of books.


And I know you love to lick the beater.




I know you now, my precious, precious boy.

What I don't know.

Is how I ever lived without you.

He does indeed look a lot like you. Just think, in 18 years there will be a man walking around with your face :)
