Teething becomes a daily pain,
Wrestling with nap times too.
Evading boundaries and
Laughing to yourself.
Filling the home with germs and
Toys to educate us.
How has it been a year?
My head cannot wrap around you,
Oh but these arms can.
Nothing else matters as
This endless love,
Has found a home in you.
Experimenting with cause and effect,
Listening to the no's with a smile
Eventually acting although forbade.
Voluntarily clapping as the moment strikes,
Easing all frustration.
No fear as you climb every obstacle
Tears flow at the drop of a hat,
Have I left your vicinity too long?
My goodness how you need me,
Oh another tooth!
Nocturnal vomiting welcomes the
Tummy bug into everyone's system.
How do you bounce back so quickly?
Tooth intrudes on your gummy smile,
Everything you see you must explore!
Nothing stops your determination,
Trying to pull up and stand, sometimes going
My heart palpitates,
Oh you try to talk but
No, no, she could not have just said that.
The cat has fewer safe spaces now,
Hooray for naps and softplay!
