Holdin’ Holdyn

We celebrated my sweet little girl’s birthday on Saturday. She will officially be two years old on April 12th. How is it that my 8 pounds, 6 ounce bright-eyed baby girl is already about to be two years old? I will write more about her next week, but here is a little ditty I sing to my baby girl. I wrote it when she was born. Yes, it sounds better sung, versus just read, but that’ll be just between me and my girl.

“I saw her tiny hands on the screen reach up.
I knew one day I hold them so tightly.
It wouldn’t be too much longer til
She was in my arms, daily and nightly.

I couldn’t wait to be holding Holdyn.
Time flew by and before I knew it,
I was holding Holdyn.

And I knew from the beginning that she would steal my heart.
And everyone around her would fall apart
The first time they saw her,
The look in her eyes, oh my!
Holding Holdyn.

And I swore I
Wouldn’t cry, but one look
At those blue eyes,
I was sold,
Out of control,
In love with my baby girl.
Each night I thank God
When I’m holding Holdyn.

Dark blue eyes,
Like storms on the horizon.
Hair color,
That changes with the sun.
She smiles
And it lights up the room.
And my heart,
Is like a flower in bloom.
How I love, holding Holdyn.

I watch her kick, I watch her cry,
I watch her sleep late at night.
One day I’ll watch her drive away
And dance across a high school stage.
I knew it’d be hard,
I knew I’d be scared,
I knew I’d make mistakes, some beyond repair.
But what I never knew was how much I’d be

Sold,
Out of control,
In love with my baby girl.
In love with my baby girl.
Each night I thank God
When I’m holding Holdyn.
Holding Holdyn…”
