Six weeks before baby

‘Twas six weeks before his due date and all in his room

were the things loved ones had bought while he was still in the womb.

There were shoes, socks, bibs and onesies in baskets on a tower

and a lot of other things given to him at his baby shower.

Kind words had been written in cards that his mom strung up on the wall

and the Scentsy smell of a fresh baby wafted around the room and down the hall.

His crib had been assembled in a frenzied state of mind

but once the bedding was on it, it all looked just fine.

The alphabet wall his mom, dad, and auntie worked on for weeks

actually turned out alright after a couple of tweaks.

Hundreds of diapers will one day have been changed on this table

for all the times we will clean you until that blessed day when you are able.

His closet had been hung with clothes of all colors and sizes

Because his mom needs retail therapy every time her blood rises.

We’re almost ready to bring you home, just a couple more things to do

before the only time we have left over is all spent on you.
