Little Hands

Sometimes you get discouraged

because I am so small

I leave my little handprints

on furniture and walls.

But every day I'm growing,

I'll be big some day

and all my tiny fingerprints

will surely fade away.

So here's a lasting keepsake

so you can still recall

how sweet my little hands were

when I was very small.

Back in October, Olivia and I attended a Pattycake Prints party, hosted by one of the ladies in my Listening Mothers group. We had lots of fun having her hand and foot print casted in clay, but we had no idea how precious this little keepsake would turn out to be. The poem above was included in the box, and brought both Daddy and Mommy to tears.

We love those little hands with all of our hearts!
