Thomas, on the verge of two,
Lets adults know what he can do!
Intrigued by switches, pull-push doors
Can now say “Ta!”” and loves applause!
He tries to put his words together
At pointing out is very clever
Sniffs, touches, gnaws at plastic toys
Runs, climbs up steps, shouts and makes noise.
Locked in his high chair, bib in place
Food is supplied, joy lights his face
Kitchen drawers are such fun
Though scattered objects bug his Mum!
But Thomas at this age learns fast
Lead actor in the family cast
His progress has us all agog
He embraces life, goes the whole hog!
