You are invited to a baby shower filled with love and joy
We just want to celebrate, we don't care if it is a girl or boy.
We are so happy to host a day when we all get together
No matter what the weather.
We want to celebrate and welcome

Very soon a new baby will be on its way
We want to celebrate the expectant day.
So please come and join us
Just come don't make a fuss
We'll play games and have some fun
With the expectant Mom!
There is so much that is needed
For a new Mom to succeed
We want to help her out this day
And help her in every way.
So a baby shower we will have
We'll share some gifts and a laugh
A happy occasion this will be
Fun for all just wait and see.
It won't be long till we meet this little one
We all are wondering is it a daughter or a son
Whichever it will be doesn't matter to us
A new baby in the family is always a plus.
We will have the shower soon we won't delay
As you never know when this baby will be on its way
But one thing we do know, the baby will be loved
As we know it comes from heaven above

Poet: Linda Robertson
On your feet.
On the wing;
You new voice
Is here to sing.
Cherish The Days
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2020
Cherish the days with your little one
Watch them grow and enjoy the fun
Life will present a many a stage
As you watch and see them age.
They are only little for a short time
You watch them crawl and then they climb
Then before you know it, the first step they take
You watch them grow and make mistakes.
There will be times when your heart will break
You want to protect them and take away their aches
But growing up we all go through
Just love them and all they do.
A Baby Is Like
A baby's like a flower
All soft and pink and white,
A baby's like a sunbeam,
All sparkly, warm and bright,
A baby's like a bluebired
That brings a happy song,
And life is so much sweeter
When a baby comes along!
The Child's Appeal
Poet: Mamie Gene Cole
I am the child.
All the world waits for my coming.
All the earth watches with interest to
see what I shall become.
Civilization hangs in the balance,
For what I am, the world of tomorrow will be.
I am the child.
I have come into your world about
which I know nothing,
Why I came I know not;
How I came I know not.
I am curious, I'm interested.
I am the child.
You hold in your hands my destiny.
You determine largely whether
I shall succeed or fail.
Give me, I pray you,
those things that make for happiness.
Train me, I beg you,
that I may be a blessing to the world.
There bloomed in the garden of Paradise
Two violet buds for the darling's eyes.
A rosebud touched her lips one day
And ripe, red kisses bloomed straightway.
A cloud lamb brushed her cheeks one night
And left them tender and soft and white.
The sea the sweet little secret hears
And gives two tiny, pink shells for ears.
The breezes came in delicate whirls
And twisted her hair into dainty curls.
Then the fairies brought little hands and feet
And the dainty, wee maiden was quite complete.
The gate of Heaven was open one day
And to earth the little one ran away.
Boy or Girl?
Poet: Edgar A. Guest
Some folks pray for a boy, and some
For a golden-haired little girl to come.
Some claim to think there is more of joy
Wrapped up in the smile of a little boy,
While others pretend that the silky curls
And plump, pink cheeks of the little girls
Bring more of bliss to the old home place
Than a small boy's queer little freckled face.
Now which is better, I couldn't say
If the Lord should ask me to choose to-day;
If He should put in a call for me
And say: " Now what shall your order be,
A boy or girl? I have both in store —
Which of the two are you waiting for?"
I'd say with one of my broadest grins:
Send either one, if it can't be twins.
I've heard it said, to some people's shame,
They cried with grief when a small boy came,
For they wanted a girl. And some folks I know
Who wanted a boy, just took on so
When a girl was sent. But it seems to me
That mothers and fathers should happy be
To think, when the Stork has come and gone,
That the Lord would trust them with either one.
Boy or girl? There can be no choice;
There's something lovely in either voice.
And all that I ask of the Lord to do
Is to see that the mother comes safely through
And guard the baby and have it well,
With a perfect form and a healthy yell,
And a pair of eyes and a shock of hair.
Then, boy or girl — and its dad won't care.
May you be blessed with a spirit of gentleness,
a heart that is tender.
May you be blessed with a spirit of strength,
shining within you.
May you be blessed with a spirit of compassion,
a fervent caring.
May you be blessed with a spirit of courage,
daring to be who you are.
May you be blessed with a spirit of openness,
understanding, and respect.
May the earth hold you.
May the wind lift you ever up.
May the fire draw and warm you.
May the water quench and soothe your soul.

Poems About Children Growing Up
Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections,
children tend to be sticky.
"Infancy conforms to nobody: all conform to it, so that one babe
commonly makes four or five out of the adults who prattle and
play to it."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I think that I see something deeper, more infinite,
more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of
a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or
laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.
Vincent van Gogh
