One of my favorite poems just hit home

Here's the poem:  

Jenny Kissed Me
Jenny kissed me when we met,
Jumping from the chair she sat in;
Time, you thief, who love to get
Sweets into your list, put that in!
Say I'm weary, say I'm sad,
Say that health and wealth have missed me,
Say I'm growing old, but add,
Jenny kissed me.

Time is indeed a thief - but it can't steal our sweetest memories.

How cute that poem is and put into the prospective of that sweet baby there, it just fits for sure. So glad you are enjoying caring for her.
