Who eats Taco Bell and loves fruit roll-ups
Who laughs at his little uncle and goes everywhere with grandpa
Cries for “Spiderman where are you” and when mommy leaves
Diego of the wavy hair and big head
Who is learning to count 123 and colors
Scared of el cucui on the closet
Scared of spiders walking in the wall
Lover of hot wheels, Spiderman, and monster trucks
Lover of wet mud between fingers and running in the rain
Thanks to you we all remember to laugh
Thanks to you we all smile
Diego of the happiness of every day
Eating Taco Bell and loving fruit roll-ups

Who drinks milk and loves blue
Who laughs at his mother’s facial expressions and smiles.
Who cue’s when he wants to be played with and picked up.
Ja’relle of loving to suck his 3 fingers and sticking his tongue at you when you try to kiss him.
Who is learning how to repeat mama’s words.
Scared of the dark and loud sounds.
Lover of people, colors and baby sounds.
Lover of kisses on his fat cheeks and being held.
Thanks to you you’ve changed my life.
Thanks to you you’re the reason I’m smiling every day.
Ja’relle my life who drinks milk and loves blue
Dominique L Roberts is a freshman Florence Crittendon High School.
Who eats Cheetos and loves playing outside
Who laughs at funny faces and tickle time
