4: I Am Your Dad When I heard the news of you, I did the things that most Daddies do. I opened up my heart so wide, For you to have a place inside. I tried to imagine the person you'd be, would you look or act like me? I thought of the things we would do, The times we'd share, just us two. I would hold your hand in mine, be your protector, strong yet kind. I would be your hero and friend, give advice on which you'd depend. I remember the day you were born, I cradled a miracle, small and warm. What words I had were scarce and few, A tear was the best that I could do. Life gave me a moment so rare, Bursting with pride, love and care. I promised you then all that I had, You are my child, I am your Dad.
5: God has truly blessed us With our precious baby boy, A precious gift sent from heaven To raise and to enjoy So he will grow to be a man Of faith and integrity Walking with the Lord of love To become a man
6: The day you came Time stood still The day you came I felt my heart fill Love so pure I never before felt Love so warm It made my heart melt That little face So sweet and small The whole cute package I love it all
9: Ours to Keep
13: Lord, please care for this little one, Whose precious life has just begun. Wrap him in your boundless love; Send him blessing from above. Bathed in mom and dad's affection, He also needs divine direction; Guide him in Your righteous praise. He's safe for now in his parent's arms, But protect him always from evils harms. Give him strength for every hassle; Let your Word be his mind's castle. Set his path so clear and straight, A Christian's ways he'll demonstrate. Let joy and kindness light his face; May his faith and goodness make Your case. All this we ask, Lord; this we pray: That You'll make this boy Your own today. ~ By Joanna Fuchs
15: I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart. Our life together has just begun, You're part of me my little one. As mother with child, each day I grew, My mind was filled with thoughts of you. I'd daydream of the things we'd share, Like late-night bottles and teddy bears. Like first step and skinned knees, Like bedtime stories and ABC's. I thought of things you'd want to know, Like how birds fly and flowers grow. I thought of lessons I'd need to share, Like standing tall and playing fair. When I first saw your precious face, I prayed your life be touched with grace. I thanked the angels from above, And promised you unending love. Each night I lay you down to sleep, I gently kiss your head and cheek. I count your little fingers and toes, I memorize your eyes and nose. I linger at your nursery door, Awed each day I love you more. Through misty eyes I dim the light, I whisper "I Love You' every night. I love you from the the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart. As mother and child our journey's begun, My heart's yours forever little one.

45: Mimi's Heart When I heard you were on the way, I smiled and wiped a tear away. I cried the tear because I knew, My heart had help a place for you. As each day your Mommy grew, I thought and thought of you. I wondered if you were a girl or a boy. And what would be your favorite toy. I wondered what games we'd play, And how we would spend a day. Would we talk or read or bake? Oh, what special friends we'd make! Would we dance or skip or sing? What would be your favorite thing? Would we cuddle, kiss and hug? When you were born, I held you close, It's what I'd dreamed of most. I touched your tiny fingers and toes, I kissed your head, your cheek and nose. Hello little grandchild, it is me. My heart as happy as can be. I wish for you the sun and moon, I wish for you a happy tune. Know that Grandma's always near, I'd do anything, anything for you my dear. When I heard you were on the way, I smiled and wiped a tear away. I cried the tear because I knew, My heart would always belong to you. Love Mimi | Q | My Mimi
