Baby Shower Poetry

Rocking My Baby

Cleaning And Scrubbing Can Wait Until Tomorrow…
For Babies Grow Up We’ve Learned To Our Sorrow…
So Quiet Down Cobwebs…Dust Go To Sleep…
I’m Rocking My Baby; And Babies Don’t Keep.

Baby of mine

You are small for such a short time. As you grow each day; I will do my best to keep time from slipping away. And never forget to cherish you each, and everyday.

A New Baby

baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer,bank accounts
smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the
future worth living for.

My Baby

Not flesh of my flesh Nor bone of my bone, But still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute,You didn’t grow under my heart, But in it.~Unknown

Our Child

You’re a chosen child Chosen to fill our home With laughter,
joy and love You’re a chosen child Sent down from God above You’ve given
us so much pleasure Chosen above the rest Our home is now complete and
forever blessed

The Gift

I didn’t give you the gift of
life, But in my heart I know. The love I feel is deep and real, As if it
had been so. For us to have each other Is like a dream come true! No, I
didn’t give you The gift of life, Life gave me the gift of you.

The Wish

We preyed everyday for you; that our dream might come true. We looked to the heavens and wished on every star. We waited, and wondered how long will it be before there is a child in our family. Then one day are waiting was over. All of our dreams, all of our wishes, and every pray came true- God sent us a miracle, and that miracle was YOU.~Mary B.

Gift ideas made with your favorite words

Personalized Baby Shower Plantable Seed Poem Favor- we think this is such a clever way to use baby poetry!

Find a poem, verse, or quote that will speak to mom and baby. Use these words to decorate the cover
of a photo album, baby journal, scrapbook, or other keepsake. You can also decorate a ceramic or wooden frame with your favorite limerick, poem, quotes or verses.

With the use of a photo editor, you can put your writing directly on to a photo, or create a piece of art deco to match baby’s new nursery.

Check a craft store for special transfer papers that can be used with
your home printer. Many transfer papers will allow you to
“heat-transfer” printed materials to fabrics and other services. You can make your word into almost any gift.

Poems can also be embroidered onto baby blankets, clothing, bibs, and other fabrics. It’s a great baby shower gift idea, especially when you want to give something that will be sentimental, or extra special. There are baby stores that offer the option of personalizing selected gifts in their baby-line. There are vendors that are specific to everything that’s a custom order. The other option; find a credible embroiderer locally, or on line.

Don’t forget about the option of engraving, free-hand/hand-painted or silk-screening too. Again, check on line for recommended vendors and artists.
