This poem, Baby Steps, is a reflection of watching a child grow along
with encouragement about life.
It reflects our thoughts for our children as they journey through life.
Hopefully the poetry will be inspirational not only to our children
but to all others who read it.
It is a great poem to include in a birthday card, or at graduation, or if
someone just needs a few words of encouragement.

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!

Short Love Poems
"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."

"It is the nature of babies to be in bliss."
