Here I am at 1, already walking with my little feet.
Here I am at 2, already talking with my shining teeth.
Here I am at 3, having birthday parties.
Here I am at 4, playing with my dollies.
Here I am at 5, starting elementary.
Here I am at 6, already eating cookies from pantries.
Here I am at 7, already sleeping in a big bed.
Here I am at 8, already having teddy ted.
Here I am at 9, already graduating.
Here I am at 10, already having a education.
Here I am at 11, already in the sixth grade.
When when I turn twelve in March,
I will becoming of age.
