New baby poems

A Baby Changes Things

A baby changes things;

They'll never be the same;

Your life is filled with wonder,

Since your little miracle came.

There's lots of things to do now,

But with the new tasks you face,

Your family gains more love,

And bonds time will never erase.

Congratulations on your new addition!

Precious Baby

A new family member has arrived,

Your darling, precious baby.

Your lives are filled with amazing love,

And sleep has become a "maybe!"

Congratulations! Now enjoy

Your dear and special treasure;

Your lives are better, now transformed

With childhood's awesome pleasure.

By Joanna Fuchs

Cherish This Time

So your baby is here! What joy and what pleasure!

Now your life is expanding, to make room for this treasure.

A darling newcomer to have and to hold--

Her (His) smiles are more precious than silver or gold.

She'll (He'll) demolish your schedule though she's helpless and small;

She'll make her needs known, and she'll rule over all.

See, a new parent's work is just never quite done,

But you'll never mind, ‘Cause it's all so much fun.

When you hear her cute giggle you'll start "aahing" and "oohing,"

And she'll soon reply back, by "ga ga" and "goo gooing."

Those big innocent eyes, see a world strange and new;

To make sense of it all, she'll look only to you.

So cherish this time, of miraculous things--

The excitement and wonder, that a new baby brings.

Poems for baby boys

​​What else could bring you so much joy

As the arrival of your baby boy!

His snuggly charms now capture you;

He's in your thoughts in all you do.

Nothing can fill you so full of glee

As bouncing your little boy on your knee.

His precious antics please mom and dad;

He's a bundle of blessings, this little lad!

His boyish grin enchants everyone;

He's just what you wanted--your boy, your son.

A baby boy is a natural high,

So have lots of fun with your little guy.

By Joanna Fuchs

Your life will be filled with riotous joy;

You're in for it now; boy, oh boy!

Your new and thrilling life begins,

Full of baby boy coos and mischievous grins.

He'll use every trick and baby ploy

To get your attention...your baby boy.

Soon he'll crawl, explore and run;

His boyish adventures will never be done.

So don't waste time with your newest toy,

He'll be grown in a moment, your cute baby boy.

By Joanna Fuchs


Poems for baby girl

Hold her a little longer, rock her a little more, tell her another story, you've only told her four. Let her sleep on your shoulder, rejoice in her happy smile, she's only a little girl for such a little while.

A baby of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in your world today.

A daughter brings sunshine to brighten your day. A daughter brings joy through her loving ways. A daughter is a blessing that comes from above. A special and beautiful treasure to love.

She's a little bit of sunshine, She's a smile to light your days, She will steal your heart and keep it with her warm endearing ways, She's your precious little daughter, With a sweetness from above Who will fill your years with laughter and your lives with lots of love.

Short verses for new baby cards

To look at a newborn is like finally opening a package you looked at and have been curious about for many months - and then its contents is a miracle of perfection that surpasses all you ever dreamed of.

The birth of a baby is only the start of a love that continues to grow, for babies can bring special joys to the heart that only proud parents can know.

Babies are angels that fly to the earth, their wings disappear at the time of their birth. One look in their eyes and we are never the same, they are part of us now and that part has a name. That part is your heart and a bond that will not sever, our babies are angels, we love them forever!

Two tiny feet that wave in the air, two tiny hands that tug at your hair, cute bottom for padding, adorable face, a bundle of joy, to love and embrace!

A baby's one thing the whole world adores, And the best part of all Is that this one is yours!

To the lucky pair who now will share The love of someone small, To the "Someone New" a welcome, too, And Best Wishes to you All!

A bundle of joy to simply adore, Now who in the world could ask for more!

No earthly joys could bring more pleasure, than a little child to love and treasure.
