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 & embrace.


A cute baby boy

To cuddle and squeeze,

To pamper and play with

And bounce on your knees…

Tiny fingers, tiny toes

Little itty bitty clothes.

Teddy bears and smiles of joy

Oh! my gosh its a little boy.

Two little feet, ten little toes,

Leave their impressions today.

Soon they will wear two little shoes,

And be running and jumping at play.

Two little feet, too little time,

Before they are walking to school,

Kicking a rock, or skipping a rope,

Wading a puddle or jumping a pool.

Two little feet, One little child,

Will soon go their own way,

But footprints in my mind recall,

They stood here yesterday.

Someday I’ll jump through puddles,

Take a stroll or run a race.

Someday I’ll walk across the street,

Or maybe walk in space,

Someday I’ll scale a mountain,

Or I’ll join a ballet corps.

Someday I’ll walk a tightrope,

Or explore the ocean floor.

Someday these feet will do some things,

That only heaven knows,

But for today they’re happy

Just to wiggle all their toes.

You were six months old and full of fun,

With a blink of an eye, you suddenly were 1..

There were many things we were going to do,

But I turned my head and you turned two…

At two, you were very dependent on me,

But independence took over when you were three…

Your third birthday, another year I tried to ignore,

But when I lit the candles there weren’t 3, but four…

Four was the year that you really thrived,

Why, look at you now, you’re already five…

Now you are ready for books and rules,

This is the year that you go to school…

The big day came; you were anxious to go,

We walked to the bus, going oh so slow…

As you climbed aboard and waved goodbye,

I felt a lump in my throat and a tears stung my eyes…

Time goes so fast, its hard to believe,

That yesterday you were home here with me…

And tomorrow when the bus brings you home &
you jump to the ground

You’ll be wearing your cap and graduation gown…

So I’m holding on to these moments as hard as I can,

Because the next time I look,

I’ll be seeing a grown man!

A years gone by

How time has flown

We can’t believe

How _____’s grown

He is such a joy

and so much fun

Oh my! Our Baby’s

Turning One.

I am brother of her

and she is my sister

she is too little for us

to talk to each other

She’s a little bit of sunshine

She’s a smile to light our days

She will steal our hearts and

Keep them with her warm endearing ways

She’s our precious little daughter

With a sweetness from above

Who will fill our years with laughter

And our lives with lots of love.

Ten tiny fingers that always want to play

That never stop exploring the wonder of today

Ten tiny fingers that from the very start

Will reach out for tomorrow, yet aways hold your heart.

Patty cake patty cake Bakers man

Play with my cake mom said I can

A Birthday cake is so much fun

I am really glad that I am one.


Mother’s Heart

I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
Our life together has just begun
You’re part of me my little one.
As mother with child, each day I grew,
My mind was filled with thoughts of you.

I’d daydream of the things we’d share,
Like late-night bottles and Teddy bears.
Like first steps and skinned knees,
Like bedtime stories and ABC’s.
I thought of things you’d want to know,
Like how birds fly and flowers grow.

I thought of lessons I’d need to share,
Like standing tall and playing fair.
When I first saw your precious face,
I prayed your life be touched with grace.
I thanked the angels from above,
And promised you unending love.

Each night I lay you down to sleep,
I gently kiss your head and cheek.
I count your little fingers and toes;
I memorize your eyes and nose.
I linger at your nursery door,
Awed each day I love you more.

Through misty eyes, I dim the light,
I whisper, “I love you” every night.
I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
As mother and child our journeys begin,
My heart’s yours forever little one.

“Little girls are precious gifts,
wrapped in love serene.
Their dresses tied with sashes
and futures tied with dreams.”

Little hands and tiny feet,
Shy, and cute, and so petite;
Little whimpers, little cries,
Darling, little sparkling eyes;
Outstretched fingers, wiggling toes;
God, how can you love them so!
Children chase away the gloom,
And sunshine fills most every room;
Little mannerisms dear,
Laughs of happiness and cheer;
You just can’t know the joy of home,
Until you have children of your own.
You feel so humble, deep inside,
And have so much parental pride;
You can’t describe the joy and pleasure,
God has given with this treasure;
A million couldn’t buy the joy,
The happiness, and love, sublime;
They’re bundles straight from heaven,
And, Lord, they’re really mine

Author Unknown

Priceless Little Parts:
These little hands will grow to be,
big and strong and helpful, you see.
These teeny-tiny little toes,
will carry this body that grows and grows.
This precious, sweet and radiant smile,
will help me go the extra mile.
…..And seep inside, a soul and heart,
Destined to be special from the start.

To add to your lives

More joys and more pleasure

To congratulate you two

For baby and for you

These Are The Years

These are the years, the gentle years

the soft and sentimental years

when wee little fingers

reach and touch

and little eyes gaze

with wonder and trust,

when you love so tenderly

and so much

these are the gentle years.

These are the years the rainbow years

the quiet walk on tiptoe years,

the years of laughter

and smiles and sighs

when both of you watch

with misty eyes

the tiny bed

where a cherub lies,

these are the rainbow years

These are the years, the tender years,

The blissful, sweet-surrender years

when your little treasure from above

is the soul and purpose and center of,

your plans & dreams & dearest love,

these are the tender years

Itsy – Bitsy fingers,

Wiggly little toes,

Teeny – tiny tummy,

Baby button nose –

Lullabies & Laughter,

Lots of “baby things,”

And then to fill your heart,

The Love a baby brings.

Babies are cute and cuddly,

Full of charms,

And custom made to fit in our arms.

Just 12 short months ago

I made my big debut

So now I’d like to celebrate

My 1st Birthday with you.

My little hands play patty-cake

They peek-a-boo and wave…..

They catch me while I learn to walk,

And splash me as I bathe.

They hold your fingers tightly

And touch your heart so deep…

My little hands reach out to you

For hugs before I sleep…..

My little hands are tiny now continued

But yours will serve to guide me.

And when I’m grown I’ll still reach out

And know you’re right beside me.

“What Is A Little Girl!”

She’s a bundle of sweetness,
brightness & fun

The beauty of springtime,
the warmth of the sun

She’s Innocence covered with mud,
sand, & soot

She’s Motherhood dragging
a doll by the foot…

She’s a composite picture of
giggles & tears

Of tantrums, excitement,
amusement & fears

A bundle of mischief
and often a tease

A creature of moods
not easy to please…

Who’ll capture your heart
with her pixie-like grin

Or chatter and beg till your
patience wears thin

But obedient, naughty,
mischievous or coy

She’s Mom’s little Darling &
Dad’s Pride & Joy.

What Are Little Girls Made Of?

Girls are made of sugar ‘n spice,

Everything sweet, & 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 Are Little Boys Made Of?

Boys are mad of chuckles & grins,

Tousled hair and banged-up shins,

Things with wheels & frogs in pockets

Questions, baseball caps, & rockets;

They’re joy & mischief, fun & noise-

That’s how it is – boys will be boys!

These little feet have learned to walk,

And now they’ve learned to run…

These little feet just love to dance,

They climb and have some fun…

These little feet don’t want to rest,

They only want to play… continued

These little feet are busy feet,

They’re on the go all day…

A Dream come true

Ten little toes,

Two little eyes,

One little nose

(Button size)-

A wish full filled,

A dream come true…


To all of you!

Aren’t Babies Grand

They don’t have any teeth

And they don’t have much hair,

They can’t talk at all,

They can’t walk anywhere.

They sleep all day long

And stay up the whole night,

They yell every time

Things don’t suit them just right:

But with all the worry

They cause you , by heck,

They do make a home-

(Yeah they make it a wreck)

And they make you so happy,

So proud and so glad

Isn’t it wonderful

Being mother and dad!

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

It’s fun to hold and cuddle them

It’s fun to watch them grow

& to dress them up & show them off

To everyone you know

So it isn’t hard to understand

How happy you must be

With a darling little daughter

Added to your family!

Babies are for bouncing,

and for jouncing on your knee,

For charming you, disarming you,

and giggling with glee.

Babies are for kissing

and missing when you’re gone,

For walking with & talking with,

and putting booties on.

Babies are a pleasure

a treasure from above,

They’re to adore, but even more,

Babies are for love.

There’s magic in a little girl,

In shining eyes and tossing curl,

In winsome simile

and dimpled cheeks

And music when she laughs or speaks

There’s magic

in a little girl, its true–

Best wishes to your little girl and you.

A baby girl brings worlds of joy

By merely being there.

Within the shelter of your arms,

The comfort of your care,

And may this joy be just a hint

Of happy years to be

Not only for you, Baby,

But for all the family.

______’s little fingers,

And sweet baby toes

Made these impressions for you

At just six months old.

A Baby Lives Here Now

In the corner of the spare room,

There’s a little cradle now:

And the day-to-day routine

Has gotten busier somehow.

There’s a bib among the napkins–

And a talcumy perfume

Drifts around the little toys

That lie about the room.

The little teddy bear stands guard

With his round and rolly eyes

When all the house is still

But for the sounds of lullabies.

Yet even without all these things,

It’s still obvious somehow

From the happiness that fills the air–

A baby lives here now

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

A baby boy’s a promise

Of happy things to come-

Building blocks… a rocking horse…

A baseball glove… a drum…

Of Lots of noise and action

Of A busy, loving, fun filled home

With lots of joy inside

Bless your precious little heart–

You still don’t know as yet

How happy and excited

Grown-up folks can get!

But soon you will discover

The pride and gladness too

That started on the happy day

Their home was blessed with you.

This brings congratulations

And the warmest wishes too

Now that you have a brand new son

To share your life with you

For there’s nothing any nicer

Than a bouncing baby boy

To fill your home with happiness-

And Your hearts with pride and joy

Your eyes might be green,

Your eyes might be blue,

My imagination runs wild

With images of you.

Your hands & your feet,

How small they must be,

When you’re placed in my arms,

Whose face will I see.

Whether a handsome boy,

Or a beautiful little girl,

We shall cherish the day,

You are brought into this world.

A small child so precious and sweet,

Has come into your lives
to make them complete.

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

______’s little fingers

And sweet baby toes

Made these imprints today

At just Six Months Old

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *

A baby’s one thing
the whole world adores,

And the best part of all
this one is yours!

A baby is sunshine &
moonbeams & more.

Brightening your world
as never before.

Reading any book is a soothing way to send your baby off to dreamland — but stories about going to bed, sleeping, or dreaming are particularly suitable for bedtime, and can even help your child understand and accept bedtime rituals as he gets older. No matter which book you pull out at bedtime, read it in a soothing voice to help calm and reassure your baby.

Here are some of our favorite bedtime books, guaranteed to make at least one of you sleepy:

Good Night, Gorilla, by Peggy Rathmann
When the zookeeper makes his nighttime rounds, one mischievous gorilla steals his keys and follows him, releasing the other animals from their cages one by one. Under a moonlit sky, they parade silently behind the sleepy zookeeper and follow him into his house, where the keeper’s wife discovers them and escorts them back to their beds. Practically wordless, the book tells a delightful going-to-bed story with magical illustrations that will enchant your child.
Goodnight Moon, by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Clement Hurd
For decades children have taken the story of the little rabbit in Goodnight Moon to heart as he performs his evening ritual of saying goodnight to every object in his room, including “a comb, and a brush, and a bowl full of mush.” Clement Hurd’s illustrations start out intensely colored and gradually fade to shades of gray as the bunny grows drowsy. Many parents tell us they depend on this quintessential bedtime book to help their children nod off at night.
The Runaway Bunny, by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Clement Hurd
When a young bunny threatens to run away and become a rock … a fish … a flower … his mother joins him in his imaginary flight and assures him that she’ll follow wherever he goes. It’s a sweet story of the unconditional love of a mother for her child, told in soothing rhythms — an ideal book for helping your baby go to sleep feeling safe and cared for.
Hush Little Baby, by Sylvia Long
If you don’t think the classics can be improved on, reading Sylvia Long’s new edition of “Hush Little Baby” may change your mind. Unlike the original song’s language, which spoke of a mother buying her child all sorts of things to comfort him, this new version emphasizes the beauty and comfort found in the natural world. The familiar bedtime melody will calm and soothe your child, and you’ll appreciate the book’s tender, gentle spirit.
Counting Kisses: A Kiss-and-Read Book, by Karen Katz
“My tired little baby, do you need a kiss?” From “ten little kisses on teeny tiny toes” to “one last kiss on your sleepy, dreamy head,” sparse text and winsome illustrations lead you and your baby through a kissing countdown that’ll soon be a favorite bedtime ritual for you both.
Snoozers: Seven Short Short Bedtime Stories for Lively Little Kids, by Sandra Boynton
The charming Snoozers serves up seven bite-size tales sweetened with humor. Each little story takes a minute or less to read. Colorful tabs help older babies turn the pages themselves. And the wonderfully absurd “Silly Lullaby” at the end just might become a family favorite: “Go to sleep, my zoodle / my fibblety-fitsy foo / Go to sleep, sweet noodle / The owl is whisp’ring, ‘Moo.'”
Good Night, Little Bear, by Patsy Scarry; illustrated by Richard Scarry
Here’s a classic Little Golden Book that many moms and dads will remember from childhood. After finishing a bedtime story, Father Bear hoists Little Bear on his shoulders and takes him to bed. In this playful tale of “Where could Little Bear be?” Father Bear searches (wink, wink) high and low — above the china cabinet, under the stove, even in the woodbox outside — to find him. Little Bear finally reveals himself when they pass a mirror. In a gesture every parent can relate to, Little Bear goes to bed believing he’s fooled his dad.
Kitten’s First Full Moon, by Kevin Henkes
Simply told and luminously illustrated in black and white with soft shades of gray, this darling story about a kitten who mistakes the moon for a bowl of milk is a comedy of errors. As Kitten chases after the moon, she finds herself in humorous predicaments until she ends up back home, where she finally finds what she’s looking for. The whimsical ending makes the refrain throughout Kitten’s journey all the more amusing: “Still, there was the little bowl of milk, just waiting.”

The following suggestions can help when your child does not want to go to bed or is having trouble staying in bed:

Maintain structure for bedtime
Your child will benefit from the structure and rules you set regarding bedtime limitations. In fact, having firm rules can ease – not cause – anxiety in children. Make sure you explain the new bedtime rules to your child. When you, the parent and/or guardian, are consistent with the bedtime rules, your child will understand what to expect, learn self-control, and adapt. In fact, they will learn to like the predictability of the sleep routine, but the initial few days need some determination on your part to succeed. It is also very important not to lose ground during holidays and vacations. All adults involved in bedtime routines should agree to act similarly so the child is not confused and learns not to push limits with one or the other adult.

What should the structure be?
Establish a set bedtime
Establish a regular bedtime for your child and be consistent about sending your child to bed at this time. Children with consistent bed times are more likely to get sufficient sleep. If you’d like to a establish an earlier sleep time than your child current has, you can start setting your child’s bed time 15 minutes earlier every few nights until you meet your new goal. For example, if your child currently falls asleep at 9:30 p.m. and you would like him or her to go to bed at 8:30, you could start making his or her bedtime 9:15 for a few days, then move it back to 9:00 p.m. This technique is called bedtime fading. Be cautious about moving the bedtime back too quickly or making it too early (for your own convenience) as to make it age inappropriate. Doing so may cause your child to not be able to fall asleep, leading to a lot of frustration. Your child’s sleep physician may sometimes recommend a late bedtime to begin with and then advise the fading technique. This strategy may reduce stress as you introduce the other quiet activities and routines around bedtime noted below.

Plan up to 1 hour of quiet time before bed for bedtime routines
Before bedtime every night, set aside up to 1 hour for calm activities, such as listening to quiet music or reading a book in a dim light. The activity should be something that is fun, and that can be used as a tool to create a sense of approaching bedtime. However, the activity should not be too stimulating – such as TV watching, computer gaming, or heavy homework, which may arouse rather than calm your child. The last several minutes of quiet time activity should take place in the room where your child sleeps.

Activities such as going to the restroom, a relaxing bath, brushing teeth, etc. may be incorporated in this time. Also, it is important for children to be brought to bed/put into bed awake so that they learn to fall asleep by themselves.

If your child cries, speak calmly, reassure your child “that he or she is fine and that it is time to go to sleep.” Make your visit brief, and then leave the room. If your child continues to cry, space out the time between visits to the bedroom, and when you do return, do not do anything but talk calmly, briefly (1-2 minutes), and then leave. No arguments or discussions need to take place. The purpose of your visit is to let your child know that you are present and to reassure him or her that they are okay. Continue to keep the atmosphere as for bed time (dark, quiet, calm). Your child will learn to calm down and go to sleep if you stick with this routine.

If your child starts developing a habit of getting out of bed, these tips may help resolve this problem. Take your child back to bed, tell him or her that the door will be closed (but not locked) if he or she gets out of bed again and that he or she has control of keeping the door open by staying in bed. If your child stays in bed, the door stays open. If your child gets out of bed, close the door for 1 or 2 minutes. If your child gets out of bed again, put your child back in bed and close the door again for another couple of minutes. Be consistent. You may increase the length of time the door is closed by 1-2 minutes if you do not get a desired response. When your child stays in bed, open the door and acknowledge their good efforts with praise. If age appropriate, a bedtime pass to allow one exit from the bedroom for a specific reason may work as well to give the child a sense of control. For older children, a method of positive reinforcement can be performed, such as praise next morning for staying in bed.

A word on rewards and penalties
Do praise your child and reward your child when he or she stays in bed or does what you want him or her to do regarding bedtime activities and sleeping. Consider stickers, breakfast treats, small toys, or other special prizes as some possible ways to reward your child. Be careful not to offer junk food as reward. Use positive phrases, such as, “you are doing a great job of staying in bed.” On the other hand, don’t dwell on misbehavior from the previous night. Don’t use the bedroom as a place of punishment or time outs – so your child doesn’t associate the bedroom with negative behavior. Also, don’t lock your child in his or her bedroom. This again can be considered more of a punishment by a child or can even scare some children.

Patience and persistence
Changing any habit takes time. Your child will learn new sleep habits if you stick to your prescribed routine. Your child may want to argue or complain about new bedtime rules. You must ignore these arguments and protests. Firmly and calmly let your child know that this is the new bedtime plan. It may be very challenging at first and may take several nights to get your child used to the new plan but with some persistence, you will succeed. Remember, consistency is the key!
