Ava Learns to Crawl!
Ava learns to crawl
A day after your 8-month birthday,
You, dear Ava, spread your wings!
With Mom and Dad and Colin and Robby rooting you on,
You crawl across the basement floor
With such awesome focus and intensity . . .
And joy of being this very baby.
And you crawl like you've done it a thousand times,
Toward, your goal, that TV remote on the floor,
Which you know is mysteriously important.
Hurray for you, O Ava, on your journey,
Where you will stumble often,
And succeed because of your great effort,
Focus, joy, and
You in this circle of Love and Hope.
