And many blessings and wishes,
To welcome baby into your life today

Don Herrold

Babies are such a nice way to start people.

Patrick Rothfuss

Ten fingers, ten toes
She's laughter and teardrops
So small and brand new
And amazingly angelic
She's sent to bless you
She's one special Baby
The best of life's treasure
And will grant and bless you
Many hours of great pleasure.

Erica Eisdorfer, "The Wet Nurse's Tale"

For having a baby's sweet face so close to your own, for so long a time as it takes to nurse 'em, is a great tonic for a sad soul.

Edwin H. Chapin

No language can express the power and beauty and heroism of a mother's love.


Take a sprinkling of fairy dust,
An angel's single feather,
Also a dash of love and care,
Then mix them both together.
Add a sentiment or two,
A thoughtful wish or line,
A touch of stardust, a sunshine ray...
It's a recipe, for a Baby Girl truly fine.

John Stevenson

A mother does not become pregnant in order to provide employment to medical people. Giving birth is an ecstatic jubilant adventure not available to males. It is a woman's crowning creative experience of a lifetime.

Charles Dickens

I love these little people; and it is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.

Jodi Picoult, Nineteen Minutes

Newborns reminded her of tiny Buddhas.

Samuel Hoffenstein

Babies haven't any hair;
Old men's heads are just as bare;
Between the cradle and the grave
Lie a haircut and a shave

You know what the great thing about babies is? They are like little bundles of hope. Like the future in a basket.

Ah, babies! They’re more than just adorable little creatures on whom you can blame your farts.
