nothing quite like it at all


It's everything they said
and nothing quite like it at all
The love I feel seems way too big
for a girl so very small

My favorite thing to do is 
just to sit and watch you play
I bend to kiss your chubby cheeks
a million times a day

You love to look at everything
It's fun to watch you stare
And when you get excited
you like to pull hard on my hair

I really can't remember
what it was like before you came
But one thing I can tell you
is that nothing is the same

It's true, I got more sleep back then
and I do miss that a lot
But I wouldn't trade one moment
for the joy your life has brought

Every day I thank God for you
and the life I get to raise
I can't wait to see you grow and learn
over all the coming days

Of all the things I've ever done
this is the best thing of them all
It's everything they said
and nothing quite like it at all
