Poems and Quotes for New Babies
There are thousands of poems for babies. These might have been written years ago, but many have been penned recently by people who just love poetry. You can also write your own baby poems if you feel inspiration, but if you would rather stick to someone else's inspiration there here are some brilliant poems to use, which are all author unknown:
"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."
These next three you have probably heard of before, but they are classic baby poems:
"What Little Girls Are Made Of?
Girls are made of sugar 'n spice,
Everything sweet and everything nice,
Girls are ruffles, bonnets, and bows,
Dimpled smiles and dancing toes,
They're tears and giggles, dolls and curls,
That's how it is with little girls."
"What Little Boys Are Made Of?
Boys are made of chuckles & grins,
Tousled hair and banged-up shins,
Things with wheels and frogs in pockets
Questions, baseball caps, and rockets;
They're joy and mischief, fun and noise-
That's how it is - boys will be boys!"
"Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full or 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 that is born on the Sabbath day,
Is bonnie and blithe, and good and gay."

Perhaps they were comments made in jest or as passing; but many baby quotes have stuck. You will find plenty of baby quotes hat are perfect for writing into a welcome baby card along with your new baby gift. Here are some fun ones for baby boys and baby girls:
"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."
From Peter Pan by J.M Barri
"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, the bankroll smaller, a home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for."
"Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever-fresh and radiant possibility."
Kate Douglas Wiggin
