A Baby Story

This is a story,
"Bout a baby named B.
A blessing straight from God,
As you can plainly see.

Momma went to the doctor,
Early one morn,
To check on little B,
Before she was born.

What the doctor found,
On that scary day,
Was that B was not growing.
We needed to pray.

B was so small,
That the doctor was concerned.
We needed to see a specialist,
And hope the tables turned.

What could we do,
But pray day and night?
That our little B would grow,
And be all right.

Though her progress was slow,
B grew and she grew.
She had reached average size,
When she was born and brand new.

She stayed very average,
By her 2 month check-up.
We were out of the woods,
No need to play catch-up!

And now, at 4 months,
The baby that wouldn't grow,
Is in the 75th percentile for height,
A 24 and 3/4 inch show!

As far as her weight,
Pounds 14 and ounces 10,
She's in the 70th percentile,
And "too small" is a has-been!

Forty and a half centimeters,
Is the circumference of her head.
Healthy and perfect,
Is what the doctor said.

Our little B,
So healthy and strong,
Proves to us again,
That God is faithful all along.
