Who You'll Be

Precious baby asleep on me
Who will you grow up to be?
Will your voice be high?
Will it be low?
What will you grow up to know?
Will your fingers type ten times faster than mine?
Will you be selfish?
Will you be kind?
Will you have your daddy's eyes?
Will your hair grow curly?
Will it grow straight?
Will you stay home to read or get asked on dates?
Will you write like your mommy?
Will you read like your dad?
Will you have talents we've never had?
Oh, precious baby sleeping here
You're a mystery to me
Unfolded only in years


  1. This one goes in her baby book. Or in a letter for her to open on her 18th birthday.

  2. Oh, this one is so cute. I remember thinking this about Alison and David when they were little babies.
