I think ahead as time flies by
Soon I'll be winging through the sky
While Thomas, now an active tot,
Goes on safari – he can't stop.
His brain expands; new links are made
So much to see – he's not afraid
Each day he tests parental rule
This «joyful bundle» is no fool!
Gran, Mum and Dad watch him advance
Soon he'll stand up, walk and dance
He's not quite there but I am sure
I'll hear his footsteps on the floor!
When I held him first, in Jan
I became an unconditional fan
At eleven months – how he has grown!
Thomas – welcome Auntie home!
