Baby Poems: Poems About Babies

  
Tags: , , , , ,
Posted by | 10 April 2010 4 Comments

Welcome a new baby or grandbaby into your or a friend’s family with a heartfelt baby poem. Two of my nieces are expecting their first baby within the next few months. It’s always a nice added touch to include a special poem with your baby gift. It will be something the new mother-to-be will cherish as a keepsake. Take one of the following baby poems, copy and past into Word, change the font to one of your choice, double space the lines, and print onto baby themed or pastel color card stock. Place the poem in an attractive frame to be placed in the baby’s room. (See the comment below suggesting adding handprints to a baby poem.)

The following baby poems celebrate the miracle and joy babies bring to everyone…

Tuesday’s Child

Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for a living,
But the child born on a Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

Two Little Feet

Two little feet, ten little toes,
Leave their impressions today.
Soon they will wear two little shoes,
And be running and 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.

Mother’s Heart

I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
Our life together has just begun
You’re part of me my little one.
As mother with child, each day I grew,
My mind was filled with thoughts of you.
I’d daydream of the things we’d share,
Like late-night bottles and Teddy bears.
Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC’s.
I thought of things you’d want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.
I thought of lessons I’d need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.
When I first saw your precious face,
I prayed your life be touched with grace.
I thanked the angels from above,
And promised you unending love.
Each night I lay you down to sleep,
I gently kiss your head and cheek.
I count your little fingers and toes;
I memorize your eyes and nose.
I linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day I love you more.
Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
I whisper, “I love you” every night.
I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
As mother and child our journeys begin,
My heart’s yours forever little one.

Priceless Little Parts

These little hands will grow to be,
big and strong and helpful, you see.
These teeny-tiny little toes,
will carry this body that grows and grows.
This precious, sweet and radiant smile,
will help me go the extra mile.
…..And seep inside, a soul and heart,
Destined to be special from the start.

A Baby Lives Here Now

In the corner of the spare room,
There’s a little cradle now:
And the day-to-day routine
Has gotten busier somehow.
There’s a bib among the napkins
And a talcumy perfume
Drifts around the little toys
That lie about the room.
The little teddy bear stands guard
With his round and rolly eyes
When all the house is still
But for the sounds of lullabies.
Yet even without all these things,
It’s still obvious somehow
From the happiness that fills the air
A baby lives here now

~ Author Unknown ~

My Baby Brother

What will he look like
Will my brother have a button nose
Will he have tiny toes
Are his cheeks rosey red
I think he has a fragile head
My baby brother must have a wonderful grin
and creamy soft skin,
but does he have a chubby chin
Do his eyes wonder about
Will he pout or even shout
He should be in baby scouts
Are his eyes bright baby blue
cause I don’t have one bit a clue
When he poops does he go oops!
No one knows how he’ll act or look
He’ll always be number 1 in my baby book

~ Author Unknown ~

A Baby is a Miracle

This little tiny baby
Was sent from God above
To fill our hearts with happiness
And touch our lives with love
He must have known
We’d give our all
And always do our best
To give our precious baby love
And be grateful and so blessed

~ Author Unknown ~

These Are The Years

These are the years, the gentle years
the soft and sentimental years
when wee little fingers reach and touch
and little eyes gaze with wonder and trust,
when you love so tenderly and so much
these are the gentle years.

These are the years, the rainbow years
the quiet walk on tiptoe years,
the years of laughter and smiles and sighs
when both of you watch with misty eyes
the tiny bed where a cherub lies,
these are the rainbow years.

These are the years, the tender years,
the blissful, sweet-surrender years
when your little treasure from above
is the soul and purpose and center of
your plans and dreams and dearest love,
these are the tender years.

UNTITLED BABY POEMS

Two tiny feet,
That wave in the air…
Two tiny hands,
That tug at your hair…
And an adorable little face,
A bundle of joy to love and embrace.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A cute baby boy
To cuddle and squeeze,
To pamper and play with
And bounce on your knees…

Little girls are precious gifts,
wrapped in love serene.
Their dresses tied with sashes
and futures tied with dreams.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tiny fingers, tiny toes
Little itty bitty clothes.
Teddy bears and smiles of joy
Oh! my gosh its a little boy.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

She’s a little bit of sunshine
She’s a smile to light our days
She will steal our hearts and
Keep them with her warm endearing ways
She’s our precious little daughter
With a sweetness from above
Who will fill our years with laughter
And our lives with lots of love.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ten tiny fingers that always want to play
That never stop exploring the wonder of today
Ten tiny fingers that from the very start
Will reach out for tomorrow, yet always hold your heart.

There’s nothing like a baby
To put new joy in life
And give each day new meaning
For a husband and a wife

And wish the best of everything
For baby and for you

This brings congratulations
And the warmest wishes too
Now that you have a brand new son
To share your life with you
For there’s nothing any nicer
Than a bouncing baby boy
To fill your home with happiness

Your eyes might be green,
Your eyes might be blue,
My imagination runs wild
With images of you.
Your hands and your feet,
How small they must be,
When you’re placed in my arms,
Whose face will I see.
Whether a handsome boy,
Or a beautiful little girl,
We shall cherish the day,
You are brought into this world.
A small child so precious and sweet,
Has come into your lives
to make them complete.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bless your precious little heart
You still don’t know as yet
How happy and excited
Grown-up folks can get!
But soon you will discover
The pride and gladness too
That started on the happy day
Their home was blessed with you.

~ Author Unknown ~

A baby boy’s a promise
Of happy things to come
Building blocks… a rocking horse…
A baseball glove… a drum…
Of Lots of noise and action
Of A busy, loving, fun filled home
With lots of joy inside

~ Author Unknown ~

A baby girl brings worlds of joy
By merely being there.
Within the shelter of your arms,
The comfort of your care,
And may this joy be just a hint
Of happy years to be
Not only for you, Baby,
But for all the family.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There’s magic in a little girl,
In shining eyes and tossing curl,
In winsome simile and dimpled cheeks
And music when she laughs or speaks
There’s magic in a little girl, its true
Best wishes to your little girl and you.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It’s fun to hold and cuddle them
It’s fun to watch them grow
and to dress them up and show them off
To everyone you know
So it isn’t hard to understand
How happy you must be
With a darling little daughter
Added to your family!
Babies are for bouncing,
and for jouncing on your knee,
For charming you, disarming you,
and giggling with glee.
Babies are for kissing
and missing when you’re gone,
For walking with and talking with,
and putting booties on.
Babies are a pleasure
a treasure from above,
They’re to adore, but even more,
Babies are for love.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Aren’t Babies Grand
They don’t have any teeth
And they don’t have much hair,
They can’t talk at all,
They can’t walk anywhere.
They sleep all day long
And stay up the whole night,
They yell every time
Things don’t suit them just right:
But with all the worry
They cause you , by heck,
They do make a home
(Yeah they make it a wreck)
And they make you so happy,
So proud and so glad
Isn’t it wonderful
Being mother and dad!

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ten little toes,
Two little eyes,
One little nose
(Button size)
A wish full filled,
A dream come true…
Congratulations
To all of you!

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These little feet have learned to walk,
And now they’ve learned to run…
These little feet just love to dance,
They climb and have some fun…
These little feet don’t want to rest,
They only want to play…
These little feet are busy feet,
They’re on the go all day…

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just 12 short months ago
I made my big debut
So now I’d like to celebrate
My 1st Birthday with you.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My little hands play patty-cake
They peek-a-boo and wave…..
They catch me while I learn to walk,
And splash me as I bathe.
They hold your fingers tightly
And touch your heart so deep…
My little hands reach out to you
For hugs before I sleep…..
My little hands are tiny now continued
But yours will serve to guide me.

And when I’m grown I’ll still reach out
And know you’re right beside me.

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Babies are so sweet
as a bundle of joy
as they lay in there crib
and play with there toys!
Whether its a girl or boy
they still are the best miracle
in the world!!!

~ Author Unknown ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Precious one,
So small,
So sweet
Dancing in
on angel feet
Straight from Heaven’s
brightest star
What a miracle
you are!

    Thank you for sharing the author’s name. I’m glad you did.

    MOther’s heart was written by Teri Harrison. Just wanted to give credit where it is due. As it is an amazing poem

  • Susan Adcox said:

    Some of these would be perfect with a set of little handprints or footprints. Why not put in a bottle of washable ink with your gift! Or make one for yourself with a grandbaby’s handprints or footprints. I don’t have any grandbabies any more. My youngest is five, and my oldest attended her high school prom last night. But these poems really made me miss having a baby in the family!

    What a great collection of baby poems! Thank you!
