let them be little


I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand.
You felt so good in it; no bigger than a minute.
How it amazes me you're changin' with every blink.
Faster than a flower blooms, they grow up all too soon.



So let them be little,
'Cause they're only that way for a while.
Give 'em hope, give them praise,
Give them love every day.



Let 'em cry, let 'em giggle,
Let 'em sleep in the middle,
Oh, but let them be little.



I never felt so much in one little tender touch.
I live for those kisses, your prayers an' your wishes.
An' now you're teachin' me how only a child can see.
Tonight, while we're on our knees, all I ask is:



Please, let them be little,
'Cause they're only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give them praise,
Give them love every day.



Let 'em cry, let 'em giggle,
Let 'em sleep in the middle,
Oh, but let them be little.



The so innocent, precious soul:
You turn around, an' it's time to let them go.



So let them be little,
'Cause they're only that way for a while.
Give them hope, give 'em praise,
Give them love every day.



Let 'em cry, let 'em giggle,
Let them sleep in the middle,
Oh, but let them be little.



Let them be little.



Happy 5 weeks sweet sweet Matthew Ryan. I can not believe it! He is now outgrowing his 3 month clothing. My little chunky monkey!! And oh my word, the looks these littles can give. I may be in for it :)
