For Father of a Boy
There are little eyes upon you,
And they're watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
Take in every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
To do anything you do;
And a little boy who's dreaming
Of the day he'll be like you.
You're the little fellows idol
You're the wisest of the wise,
In his little mind about you
No suspicions ever rise;
He believes in you devoutly,
Holds that all you say and do,
He will say and do in your way
When he's all grown up like you.
There's a wide eyed little fellow
Who believes you're always right;
And his ears are always open,
And he watches day and night.
You are setting an example
Every day in all you do;
For the little boy who's waiting
To grow up to be like you.
Getting bigger Inch by Inch
Growin' Like A Weed
Growing by leaps and bounds
Ready or not, here I grow!
Scaling New Heights
Watch me grow
Way to Grow
A Labor of Love
A baby is a bit of stardust blown from the hand of God!
A Star is Born
Catchin Some Zzzz . . .
Dreaming Sweet Baby Dreams
Good night moon
Hush little baby
I aint goin' down 'til the sun comes up!
Nighty - Night
Now I lay me down to sleep
One who sleeps with a blankie is comforted with love
Sleeping Like a Baby
Time for a nap
Twinkle, twinkle, our little star, how we wonder what you are.
When you wish upon a star
A double blessing
Our family just grew by four feet
Peas in a Pod
Me and My Wombmates
The more, the merrier
Three times the charm!
Twice (or Thrice) Blessed
Twice the fun
Two by Two (Noah's Ark theme)
Beginning of Baby Book
I am so very special
I have been from the start
Before they held me in their arms
My family held me in their hearts
And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall
My life and love will ripples make
And touch the lives of all
So read this precious story
As step by step I grow
I am a special blessing and gift
As each page here will show.
A Baby Poem
By Kathy Rodewaed
I remember, I remember,
and how sweet the memory.
Of that precious, magic moment
when you first smiled at me.
I remember, I remember
the day you learned to walk
and the cute, amazing things you said
while learning how to talk.
I remember, I remember,
and from the very start,
you've brought me precious memories
for the album of my heart.
In My Arms
By Julie Schwartz
As I hold you in my arms
and you gently rock to sleep.
I try to memorize your face,
your tiny hands and feet.
For I know too soon this moment
will just a memory be . . .
You'll be grown and on your own
and no longer needing me
to kiss your hurts and dry your eyes
and rock you till you sleep.
So, I'll treasure every moment
to have memories I can keep.
The angels light another star
Each time there is a birth
To celebrate each precious child
The good Lord sends to earth.
Of all the blessings God sends from above
the one most precious a baby boy (girl) to love.
God in his infinite wisdom chose
us to nurture and protect you.
He gave you into our loving care
blessing us in so many ways.
You were the most precious
and special of gifts.
On each and every day of your life
you must always remember,
You are loved more than mere
words can ever express.
Not only do we cherish every one
of the days we spend with you,
We're so fortunate to know
that you also love us too.
God sent to us a perfect angel, his eyes are bright and blue
his smile shines like heaven's light, when he looks up at you
his loving nature warms the soul, and fills all hearts with joy
each day I thank the Lord above, for our perfect little boy
Cleaning and scrubbing
can wait 'til tomorrow
For babies grow up,
we've learned to our sorrow . . .
So quiet down cobwebs,
Dust go to sleep,
I'm rocking my baby
and babies don't keep.
My little hands play pat-a-cake
They play peek-a-boo and wave...
They catch me while I learn to walk
And splash me as I bathe.
My little hands reach up to you,
For hugs before I sleep...
And fold together when I pray
The Lord my soul to keep.
My little hands are tiny now
But yours will serve to guide me . . .
And when I'm grown I'll still reach out
And know you're right beside me.
Someday I'll jump through puddles,
Take a stroll or run a race.
Someday I'll walk across the street
Or maybe walk in space.
Someday I'll scale a mountain
Or I'll join a ballet corps.
Someday I'll walk a tightrope
Or explore the ocean floor.
Someday these feet will do some things
That only heaven knows,
But for today they're happy
Just to wiggle all their toes!
Counting Baby's Toes
Dear little bare feet, dimpled and white,
In your long nightgown wrapped for the night;
Come, let me count all your queer little toes,
Pink as the heart of a shell or a rose.
One is a lady that sits in the sun;
Two is a baby, and three is a nun;
Four is a lily with innocent breast;
Five is a birdie asleep in its nest.
A Baby's Feet
By Algernon Charles Swinburne
A baby's feet, like sea-shells pink,
Might tempt, should heaven and sea meet
An angel's lips to kiss, we think,
A baby's feet.
Like rose-hued sea-flowers toward the heat
They stretch and spread and wink
Their ten soft buds that part and meet.
No flower-bells that expand and shrink
Gleam half so heavenly sweet,
As shine on life's untrodden brink
A baby's feet.
A baby is cuddles and tickles on toes,
The sweet scent of powder, a kiss on the nose.
A baby is teddy bears, rattles, powder and pins,
meals at midnight, giggles and grins.
What a Baby Costs
By Edgar Guest
How much do babies cost?" said he
The other night upon my knee;
And then I said: "They cost a lot;
A lot of watching by a cot,
A lot of sleepless hours and care,
A lot of heartache and despair,
A lot of fear and trying dread,
And sometimes many tears are shed,
In payment for our babies small,
But every one is worth it all.
"For babies people have to pay
A heavy price from day to day.
There is no way to get one cheap.
Sometimes when they're fast asleep
You have to get up in the night
And go and see that they're all right.
But what they cost in constant care
And worry, does not half compare
With what they bring of joy and bliss
You'd pay much more for just a kiss.
"Who buys a baby has to pay
A portion of the bill each day;
He has to give his time and thought
Unto the little one he's bought.
He has to stand a lot of pain
Inside his heart and not complain;
And pay with lonely days and sad
For all the happy hours he's had.
All this a baby costs, and yet
His smile is worth it all, you bet."

What is a One-Year-Old?
A one-year-old daughter
is so many things -
A tiny discoverer of butterfly wings,
a hugger of teddies,
a sweet sleepyhead,
and someone to dream for
in bright years ahead . . .
A special new person
who, right from the start,
has a place in the family
and, of course, in your heart.
And, just when you think
that you've learned all the things
that your dear daughter is
and the joy that she brings,
a hug or a grin
comes with such sweet surprise
that love finds you smiling
with tears in your eyes!
