It’s easy to forget you’re 8 months old

It’s easy to forget you’re 8 months old.
With your large personality
And infectious laugh.
Your strong will
And your powerful little body.
It’s easy to forget that your entire life surrounds simple principles:
Like food, sleep and clean diapers.

It’s easy to forget you’re 8 months old.
You show so many adult qualities:
Glee, anger, curiosity and indifference.
It’s easy to get frustrated when you have a meltdown:
You were so reasonable just a second ago.
In your very mature way
Tagging along in our adult world.

It’s easy to forget you’re 8 months old,
And there’s practically nothing a nap won’t fix.
