Tiny, slender, fingers and toes,
Rosebud lips and perfect nose -
Iím dressing an angel in baby clothes!
Little angel with dimpled cheek,
Resting within your crib, soft and meek -
I just keep stealing one more peek at
Why does my step seem lighter today?
My willing hands so gladly display
Joy with each duty - Love as I say,
Mommie and Daddy, so proud of you!
Grandma and Grandpa are bursting too!
Weíre looking at Love, with eyes of blue -
Heavenly Father, so kind and good,
Help us do all that each day we should,
Teaching our little girl things You would -
Often Iíve gazed at the heaven so blue,
Praising You, God, for the things You do;
Thereís not enough praise I can give to You for
