Baby Boy

It started just recently....sometimes when I look at you, I'm shocked....and I can't quite catch my breath for just a mini- second...very suddenly, and yet slowly lingering all along somehow, you are looking less like a little baby, and more like...a real, honest to goodness, little boy. My little boy. The boy I will hear first words from, and take to Disney Land. The boy I will read bedtime stories to, and eat ice cream cones with.
And it scares me and brings me so much joy all at once. But the next thing I know, I look at you again and I am relieved to see the little baby that's been here all along.
