ONE WEEK OLD!




OH my heck! My little boy is already a week old! :( I can't even believe it! He has been so much fun and I can't even fathom what I did without him!
Anywhoser, the Relief Society presidency just brought us dinner (SO SWEET) and they gave us a picture and this poem. I started crying and I just want to share it with you.

Day-Old Child
My day-old child lay in my arms,
with my lips against his ear.
I whispered strongly, "How I wish-
I wish that you could hear;

"I've a hundred wonderful things to say
(A tiny cough and a nod),
Hurry, hurry, hurry and grow
So I can tell you about God."

My day-old baby's mouth was still
And my words only tickled his ear,
But a kind of light passed through his eyes,
And I saw a though appear:

"How I wish I had a voice and words;
I've a hundred things to say,
Before I forget I'd tell you of God-
I left him yesterday."
