Short Baby Poems
by Catherine Pulsifer, ©2007
You were so small my little treasure
watching you grow has been a pleasure.
I remember those first baby steps
Some made you laugh, some made you sweat.
Each day will bring challenges to face
from baby steps to new places.
And as you grow and experience life
I hope you learn to counter all life's strife.
Always remember, my love for you
when you're happy and when you're blue
It is mistakes you'll make
But, sometimes, though, life's not a cake.
But like baby steps you first took
You will learn, listen and look.
When you consider life as a gift,
it can give you a big lift.
Two steps forward, one step back
Determination, and persistence never lack
Giant steps, baby steps we all take
But in the end, your attitude it will make.
When certain steps don't work out
Don't sit and pout
Remember how far you have come
From the first baby step to what now you've become
I am proud of you my wonderful treasure
You are special, unique and a wonderful pleasure!
"Babies are such a nice way to start people."
"Father asked us what was God's noblest work. Anna said men, but I said babies. Men are often bad, but babies never are."
Louisa May Alcott
"There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies."
"A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure, a messenger of peace and love, a resting place for innocence on earth, a link between angels and men."
Martin Fraquhar Tupper
"A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it."

"When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be."
James Matthew Barrie
"It is the nature of babies to be in bliss."
