Happy Birthday Lil' Muffin

Lil' Muffin, cute as a button
I'm glad you're turning three.
I smile every time I look at your picture
'cause in reality, you look like me.
No if's, but's or maybe's
You're definitely granddaddy's little aby
I know in life, you will get far.
Your smile is illustrious.
You're my second little star
so continue to shine, my little one.
Be as glorious as the sun.
I look forward to the day that I'm able
to hold you, hug you, cook for you, kiss you,
read to you, take care of you, tie your shoe
because I love you.
Take you to school, teach you, zip your coat,
watch you sleep, wake you up, listen to you fuss,
even if you make a mess around the house,
it's okay, 'cause you're my little baby! :)
I'll help you with all of your homework and tests.
I'll do everything for and with you that I wasn't
able to do for and with your momma,
my first little princess.
Hannah Bananah, Lil' Muffin, my baby girl.
When you said "I love you" on the phone,
I felt like the most blessed man in the world.
Congratulations, my lil' sweetie pie
on turning three.
As you get older and become a younger lady,
you'll see—you and your momma look just like me!

Happy birthday, Lil' Muffun
From your granddaddy
