     Little hands wave happily
Chubby cheeks drip with spit
His feet spin ’round wildly
Wheels turn enlarging his wit
Curiosity shines in his eyes
Baby babble comes out of his mouth
He stares at everything with unheard whys
Rotten smells come from down south
Light brown hair lies fuzzy
Little ears stick out
A sleepy mind leaves him muzzy
His mouth pulls into a pout
His eyes fall with heavy sleep
His tummy rises up and down
We all watch lovingly without a peep
A baby king wearing a cuteness crown

So cute! I love the last line! If you get a chance, I would love your feedback on my sonnet "Sunburst." Keep writing though, I'd love to read more!

The diction confused me at first. "Drip with spit", "spin wildly", "rotten smells" and then "cuteness crown." maybe if you used 'cuter' diction to describe spit etc. then the cuteness of the baby would've come through. It would've been easier to understand gow you found that cute.
