One Year Old - Poem by Sumita Datta

Today you are one year old
You look smart, handsome and bold...

You know how to laugh and how to cry
You also know how to say good bye...

You eat everything, bread rice and vegetable,
So, we gifted you a highchair along with a nice table...

When my mobiles rings, you understand someone is calling,
You also understand if on the other side your dad is talking...

You can't talk, but you try to explain,
If anyone scolds you, you know how to complain...

Somehow you make us understand, when you are thirsty,
You go crazy when you see pastry....

You love birds and follow their sound...
But when there are many birds you are yet to know how to count...

You want to talk a lot, but can say only Babba,
It will be my day, the day you will say Mamma...

(I gifted this to my son on his 1st birthday...)
