Happy Birthday to The Boy

Posted by Katie L. Carroll on August 28, 2012 in Family, Poetry |

Last I knew it was just a few months ago when I posted about the birth of The Boy during Hurricane Irene. Oh wait, it’s been a year! I don’t consider myself much of a poet, but let me have a little clichéd moment and share this poem I wrote for my son on his first birthday.


Battling bottle boycotts,

bumps, bruises, and booby bites

“Bah bah” brought a smile.


Drowning in dirty diapers,

deprived of sleep, and doubting

“Dada” drew endless laughs.


Missing pre-mommy me time,

my memory, and warm meals

“Mama” melted my heart.


Doggies say “eh eh,”

Ducks go “cack cack,”

Dragons breathe “haaaa.”


So much to learn

you from me and me from you.


A year gone by

all the ups worth any downs.


Watching you grow

finding new levels of love.


Baby says “gah gah,”

Daddy goes “boo,”

Mommy breathes “I love you.”
