Tiny Hands - By Rachel Coleman
Baby Signing Time Vol. 3 - A New Day

Tiny hands fists closed tight
Tiny dreams held inside
Tiny hands how they’ve grown
Like the babe I used to know

Tiny mouth, button nose
Eyes closed tight breathing slow
Tiny face how it’s grown
Like the babe I used to know

For me it feels like yesterday, just yesterday to me
I looked into your tiny face, your tiny face held me
Of course I know all children grow
All children grow of course I know…..
I didn’t know how fast you’d grow

Tiny feet awkward now
Pirouette, take a bow
Tiny toes how they’ve grown
Like the babe I used to know

For me it feels like yesterday, just yesterday to me
I looked into your tiny face, your tiny face held me
Of course I know all children grow
All children grow of course I know…..
But I didn’t know how fast you’d grow

Tiny child fall asleep
Close your eyes find your dreams
Tiny child how you’ve grown
You’re still the babe I used to know


Today, Sorsha has her Kindergarten Assessment at Village Christian School. My baby is growing up! This morning, Soren requested Baby Signing Time Vol. 3 for Screen time. I popped it in and he watched. Sorsha woke up just before it ended. This song is the last song on the disc, I had just posted on FB about her assessment and she snuggled up next to me. When the song reached the part about how fast they grow, showing Alex & Leah on screen first as 2 & 3 year olds from the original ST show, vol 1; then to a "current" shot of them at about 9-10 years old, I started bawling. It caught me off-guard and emotional. I am so excited for my little girl growing up, but I can't help but be emotional seeing as that tiny baby I held just yesterday (okay nearly 5 years ago) is growing to be an independant little girl and we are making preparations for her to leave my side and be her own self in the big world of school.

omigosh, Kindergarten already. !!!! time DOES fly.. . I remember Orlando's nephew, Marc, at age 2? toddling around, after he came here from the Philippines. And now he's in college, and is conducting orchestra music. Soo surreal.
