journalling reads (baby song by Diane Woolley): At first you didn't lift your head; You didn't know to smile. The time before you knew my voice Seemed such a long, long while. I couldn't wait for you to roll, And then to sit and clap. And now you're off and crawling, Not helpless in my lap. Why didn't someone tell me How fast a baby grows, That every little baby stage Soon comes, but sooner goes. So I'll enjoy the fleeting time
Before you learn to walk. And treasure every tiny noise
Before you learn to talk. For soon you'll learn to walk,
Then run, And talk and sing a song, And never be my babe again. The babe's forever gone. Little baby, take your time, For while you're tiny, you are mine."
