Song Description

In retrospect, a father realizes that his son grew up, but he didn't notice it because the son moved away almost imperceptibly, in baby steps

Story Behind the Song

My personal observations as a parent


Baby Steps Copyright, 2014 Kevin W. Kenney
Verse 1
One year old, he's wobbling toward me, holding the edge of the coffee table
He lets go, stands still for a moment, then zooms right past me, as I say "Be careful"
On his way, on his own- I blink my eyes and I swear he grows
He moves away in baby steps -it's nature's way of helping me accept
He's growing up, before my eyes, with baby steps, time sneaks by
Verse 2
Sixteen years old, where'd the time go? Holding on tightly to the steering wheel
Gives it a little gas and pulls away a bit too fast, down our street as I pray that he's careful
On his way, on his own- I wave goodbye and away he goes
Now he is grown, with kids of his own
Someday he'll know, how fast the time goes
They move away in baby steps
But even so, it won't hurt any less
We never see, how fast time flies
'Til we look back and realize
With baby steps, life snuck by
