Your little baby is growing up-
he has his daddy’s eyes.
But don’t forget that precious smile...
he was blessed with his momma’s wild side.
Your baby who needs you was born independent-
he’s already out of your arms.
Learn the rules of shadow tag,
it’s as close as he’ll let you come
to mussing his hair and pressing his clothes,
goodnight kisses will be far between.
He will always love you, he just won’t want to show it
until he is as old as me.
So keep this picture on a shelf but hold him in your heart
until he lets his daddy’s eyes shine,
his wild side is only the start.
