WELCOME CHRISTOPHER TODD
WHAA! WHAA! WHAA! Hey! What are you doing?
WHAA! WHAA! WHAA! One finger, two fingers, three fingers four ... five, six, seven fingers and MORE ...
Eight, nine, ten! Just a little prick ... WHAA! WHAA!
that's my Uncle Rick!
So many faces I see ... My Papa and Anaa all looking at me.
Everyone's looking; some just stare. Who does he look like ... with his silky curly hair?
Daddy's smiling and counting my toes. Mommy looks like Papa and I have Mommy's nose.
Family! A circle of love, like bright colored rainbows, sweet as a white winged dove.
So much joy ... for the birth of a baby boy.
