Baby Steps

These short poems about baby steps are a reflection of watching a child grow, along with encouragement for life.

They reflect 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.

They are good verses to include in a birthday card, or at graduation, or if someone just needs a few words of encouragement. We offer many other

The words of Tom Hiddleston summarizes these poems well: "You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you’ve climbed a mountain."

  1. Baby Steps
    Poet: 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!

  3. Life's Baby Steps
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2007

    As you go through life you may find
    You have forgotten how to climb
    You are in a hurry, you want to run
    But truly that is not how it's done.

    Many times in life you see
    Baby steps are meant to be
    Success does not happen overnight
    Taking small steps, that is right.

    As a child you crawl, then walk
    You goo and gaa before you could talk
    With each small step you did achieve
    Your confidence grew, you believed.

    The same is true of school you know
    Some years went fast, some slow
    But with each grade you took that step
    And carried on to the next.

    So in life the same is true
    Take baby steps in all you do.
    Don't try to move the mountain all at once
    Because if you do, down it will bounce.

    Set your goals and take that first step
    Give yourself time and make sure you prep
    With each step that you take
    Progress you will make.

    So when you think things are going to slow
    You want to run rather than go with the flow
    Remember your childhood memories
    Remember the steps in series.

  4. And for a baby, a first tooth is one of the baby steps in growing up.
    Enjoy this poem which will bring a smile to your face!

  5. The First Tooth
    Poet: Don McNeill

    A baby learns breathing, hut not so with teething,
    There’s yelling and din, till that first tooth comes in;

    We knew it would come, some day to his gum,
    But one goes temperamental, when babies go dental.

    In go both tiny fists, clear up to the wrist
    While in time they grow bolder, and snap at the shoulder.

    You give up in despair, cause you can’t figure where
    In the gum is abiding, that tooth he’s been hiding.

    Till one sunny day, you look in and, why say
    Something tiny and white, has appeared in the night.

    Where there once was a hole—thar, there now is a molar
    Not like your tooth or my tooth—it isn’t an eye tooth.

    Though the gum still is thick, you can now hear the click
    Of his crescent pearl moon, to the touch of a spoon.

    Like a ringside frequenter, there it sits front row center
    Go on yell, go on cheer, boy that first tooth is here.

    That’s the tooth, the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth!
