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.

By Joanna Fuchs

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!

Time Well Spent

See tiny fingers and tiny toes,
Bright baby eyes, cute baby nose;
Hear baby gurgles and baby sighs,
As Mom and Dad sing lullabies.

Life is changed, but that's okay;
It's fun to spend glad hours each day,
Taking time for all the good
That comes along with parenthood.

The Joy of Raising a Baby

We're glad you joined our family,
Yet some things make us wonder;
How can a little package like you
Have a voice that's loud as thunder?

You are so small and oh so cute,
But you are never very shy,
For whenever you want something brought to you,
You just open your mouth and cry.

First you moved on hands and knees,
Then you were up on your feet.
We're chasing you all around the house;
We're tired; we need a retreat!

Your food is smeared over the table;
Your food is on the floor;
Seems the only place food didn't go,
Is in the baby we adore.

Diapers here and diapers there,
Stinky... smelly... Whew!
Diapers would have done us in,
If we didn't love you as we do.

We're glad you joined our family,
You're a unique and wonderful treasure.
So, despite the work of raising you,
Being your parents is a total pleasure!

Baby poems can include a prayer for a newborn baby, a baby prayer poem, like this one, which prays for the Lord's love and guidance. This is a Christian prayer for a newborn baby. Of course, you'll change "he" and "him" to "she" and "her" if the baby is a girl.

Make Him Your Own

Lord, please care for this little one,
Whose precious life has just begun.
Wrap him in your boundless love;
Send him blessings from above.

Bathed in mom and dad's affection,
He also needs divine direction;
Guide him in Your righteous ways,
To honor You with reverent praise.

He's safe for now in his parents' arms,
But protect him always from evil's harms.
Give him strength for every hassle;
Let Your Word be his mind's castle.

Set his path so clear and straight,
A Christian's ways he'll demonstrate.
Let joy and kindness light his face;
May his goodness make Your case.

All this we ask, Lord; this we pray:
That You'll make this boy your own today.
