On the Night You Were Born
Will he be early, on time, or late?
How close will he come to that due date?
So eager to meet PJ, to see how he looks!
And in anticipation, we shower him with books!
Fourteen in all from birth to birthday,
We’ll start at the beginning,
That very first day!
This Mother’s Day the first of its kind,
Dear Lynsay, you’ll be wiping that little behind.
June will arrive and with it the sun.
Father’s Day will come with joy and fun!
The month of July filled with lots of play,
The fireworks in air, and the heat of the day.
With August, the beach calls its familiar song,
Sunshine, sand, and sea all day long!

In September, we hope our Boys play well.
The Phillies in the post season make a good sell!
October filled with ghouls and fright,
And hopefully PJ sleeping through the night!
With Thanksgiving Day, a feast to share,
Turkey, veggies, and the cold crisp air.

A very happy first Christmas it will be,
With baby PJ playing under the tree!

January brings ice, cold, and snow.
Eagles games in winter are the way to go!
This Valentine’s Day in the frame you will see,
From the pair of you two, to a family of three!
Shamrocks, gold and leprechauns too,
The fun of St. Patrick’s Day helps bring spring through!
The candy, the eggs, and the sweetness Easter brings,
With the Easter Bunny’s arrival, here comes Spring!
How did it happen so fast,
You will think?
This past year has flown by,
In what seems like a blink.
Much too fast to believe
That April day will come,
When your sweet little boy
Will like magic turn one!
