You are more perfect
than I could have hoped,
more beautiful than I could have dreamed,
more precious than I could have imagined . . .
. . . I love you more than
I could have known
Baby Song
(Diane Woolley)

At first you didn't lift your head;
You didn't know to smile.
The time before you knew my voice
Seemed such a long, long while.
I couldn't wait for you to roll,
And then to sit and clap.
And now you're off and crawling,
Not helpless in my lap.
Why didn't someone tell me
How fast a baby grows,
That every little baby stage
Soon comes, but sooner goes.
So I'll enjoy the fleeting time
Before you learn to walk.
and treasure every tiny noise
Before you learn to talk.
For soon you'll learn to walk,
Then run,
And talk and sing a song,
And never be my babe again.
The babe's forever gone.
Little baby, take your time,
For while you are tiny, you are mine.

My Footprints (put with baby's footprints in scrapbook)

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!


Little Feet (Put on scrapbbook page with baby’s footprints)
Two little feet, ten little toes
Leave their impressions today
Soon they will wear two little shoes
And be running an jumping at play.
Two little feet, too little time
Before they are walking to school...
Kicking a rock or skipping a rope
Wading a puddle or jumping a pool.
Two little feet, one little child
Will soon go their own way
But footprints in my mind recall
They stood here yesterday.
A Lock of Hair
From a child so fair
A miracle from above
Placed gently in my care
This child is growing
Up so fast
Tomorrow’s the future
Today is the past.
Walking . . . talking . . .
Fading riddles and rhymes
This lock of hair remains
A keepsake of past times.

Babies are God's opinion that the world should go on.
A good example of minority rule is a baby in the household.
Babies are such a nice way to start people. (Don Herold)
We are always surprised to see girl babies behaving like girls from the very beginning, and boy babies
behaving like boys; we seem to imagine that we had to learn it!
"When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into thousands of pieces and they all went
skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies." (from Peter Pan)
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.
