I packed up a bag with all of your clothes,
Diapers, blankets and socks for your toes.
We waited while they made a room free.
It was time for me to become a Mommy.
Dad held my hand for 9 hours straight.
He refused to leave me alone to wait.
Then here you came with ten little toes,
Daddy’s eyes and Mommy’s nose.
You had no hair. Your tongue stuck out.
Six pounds, seven and one half ounce.
That moment I looked at our sweet baby
And that was the moment you made me Mommy.
Your whole first year was an awakening.
Snuggles, kisses and nighttime feeding.
Year two we watched as you became you
Year three I saw some of Daddy in you too.
Year four I see in you so much of me.
As you grow, I’m amazed at the beauty I see.
Looking back, I feel that there’s so much I missed
But I’ve always been here to hug and kiss.
I thought I knew who God made me to be.
But I didn’t truly know until you showed me.
You’ve made me so much I never would be
You were the one who made me Mommy.
