Someone is sleepy…Looks like someone missed her nap…Oh, are we keeping you up?
Tammie, they didn’t KNOW when they said she looked sleepy that Evie had WAGR, or aniridia, or vision impairment.
Do you know how freaky it is to look at your toddler with their eyes wide open and staring into space because they are sound asleep? Doo-do-do-do, Doo-do-do-do (insert Twilight Zone music here).
No, My Baby Isn’t SleepingNo, my baby isn’t sleeping,Although her eyes are closed.She’s wide awake and knows such thingsA baby shouldn’t know.
No, my baby isn’t sleeping,She just woke from a nap.Her smile makes my heart burst with prideAnd I love to hear her laugh.
Evelyn means “living light,”She’s that and full of grace,She was knit together by her Father’s hands,Not born through random fate.
I see my past and see how I’ve been shaped to handle this,And how God’s brought you to my sideFor strength and encouragement.
God tells me his thoughts are higher than mine,That I can’t understand his ways,But someday soon we’ll be glorified,And he’ll wipe our tears away.
No, my baby isn’t sleeping,She’s singing her own song,I hear her twinkling melody,And know she’s growing strong.
No, my baby isn’t sleeping,Her life is full of joy and fun,She’ll have challenges and trials along the way,But with her faith, she’ll overcome.
