Addition to Your Scrapbook Page.

Baby poems can add so much to your scrapbook page. If you are not sure what to journal, adding a poem or quote can make your page look complete.

Here are a few ideas on how to incorporate baby poems into your baby scrapbook page:

Take a stanza from the poem and use it as a title for your page.

Use keywords from the poem to create the background page.

Use the poem as a journal entry in a journal box.

Write the poem around the photo as a frame.

Use the poem as a border for your page.

Here are some baby poems...

I am so very special
I have been from the start.
Before they held me in their arms
My family held me in their hearts.

And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
My life and love will ripples make
And touch the lives of all.

So read this precious story
As step by step I grow.
I am a special blessing and gift
As each page here will show.
~Author Cathryn Stanley


It's important for you to see
that you mean the world to me.
I created this special book
with a warm and loving touch,
so that you will always know
I love you very much!

My precious little baby
I have loved you from the start.
You are a tiny miracle
laying closely to my heart.
Each day I feel your presence,
each day you quickly grow.
Each day your heart beats softly,
as only I could know.
So I'll keep this in a special place,
and remember each year through,
of this very special time of life,
the months I carried you.

I Am Not Alone
~author unknown

Running errands and talking on the phone,
I am pleasantly reminded that I am not alone.
Little tiny hands a precious rounded knee
pushing and twisting that no one can see.
Oh sweet child kicking up your heels,
it is our little secret that only I can feel.
I look forward to your birth,
when I can kiss your skin,
but for now I will just smile,
As I feel you play within.


Coming Soon...
by Yves Gagne

There he is, sleeping,
right there inside you;
he is gently moving,
to him every movement is new.

He feels safe and warm,
he knows he is soft and fragile;
he can't wait to be in your arms,
and see your beautiful smile.

For he knows you are beautiful,
he can feel it through your love;
which happens to be plentiful,
something you'll always have enough of.

Soon he shall be with you,
bringing you tears of joy;
then you will know just what to do,
to take care of this baby boy.


Our First Glimpse
~author unknown

Today we saw
Our first glimpse of you
A little piece of heaven
Our dream come true.
The day we will meet
Seems so far away
But until you’re ready
In my tummy safely stay.
Our gift from God
Sent from above
For us to cherish
And forever to love


Your Name
by Edgar A. Guest

You got it from your father,
t'was the best he had to give,
And right gladly he bestowed it
It's yours, the while you live.

You may lose the watch he gave you
and another you may claim,
But remember, when you're tempted,
to be careful of his name.

It was fair the day you got it,
and a worthy name to bear,
When he took it from his father
there was no dishonor there.

Through the years he proudly wore it,
to his father he was true,
And that name was clean and spotless
when he passed it on to you.

Oh there's much that he has given
that he values not at all,
He has watched you break your playthings
in the days when you were small.

You have lost the knife he gave you
and you've scattered many a game,
But you'll never hurt your father
if you're careful with his name.

It is yours to wear forever,
yours to wear the while you live,
Yours, perhaps some distant morn,
another boy to give.

And you'll smile as did your father,
with a smile that all can share,
If a clean name and a good name
you are giving him to wear.


Tiny One
By Elizabeth Anna Fetters

How very often I have dreamed
A world of perfect bliss
To be the mother of a boy
Or of a tiny miss.
To hold its tiny hands in mine
To count its tiny toes
And then to place a tiny kiss
Upon its tiny nose.
To hold it very close to me
Warm against my breast
To gaze into its tiny face
Sleeping and at rest.
Oh, what could be more perfect
Or what could hold more bliss,
Than to be a mother of a boy
Or of a tiny miss.


A Wee Bit of Heaven
by Helen Steiner Rice

A wee bit of heaven
drifted down from above-
A handful of happiness,
a heart full of love.

The mystery of life,
so sacred and sweet-
The giver of joy
so deep and complete.

Precious and priceless,
so lovable, too-
The world's sweetest miracle,
baby, is you.


The Lamb
by William Blake - 1789

Little Lamb who made thee
Dost thou know who made thee
Gave thee life & bid thee feed,
By the stream & o'er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing wooly bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice;
Little Lamb who made thee
Dost thou know who made thee

Little Lamb I'll tell thee,
Little Lamb I'll tell thee;
He is called by thy name,
For he calls himself a Lamb:
He is meek & he is mild,
He became a little child:
I a child & thou a lamb,
We are called by his name.
Little Lamb God bless thee.
Little Lamb God bless thee.


Love You Forever
by Robert N. Munsch

I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby you'll be.


You are My I love You
by Maryann K Cusimano

I am your parent, you are my child
I am your quiet place, you are my wild
I am your calm face, you are my giggle
I am your wait, you are my wiggle
I am your audience, you are my clown
I am your London Bridge, you are my falling down
I am your Carrot Sticks, you are my licorice
I am your dandelion, you are my first wish
I am your water wings, you are my deep
I am your open arms, you are my running leap
I am your way home, you are my new path
I am your dry towel, you are my wet bath
I am your dinner, you are my chocolate cake
I am your bedtime, you are my wide awake
I am your finish line, you are my race
I am your praying hands, you are my saving grace
I am your favourite book, you are my new lines
I am your nightlight, you are my sunshine
I am your lullaby, you are my peek-a-boo
I am your kiss goodnight, you are my I love you


Created by the Hand of God
Author Unknown

A baby boy was created
by the hand of God above
to give the world the sweetest touch
of tenderness and love.
With the softness of a whisper,
God made a baby's skin
and then designed two trusting eyes
to put the starlight in.
With giggles from a waterfall
and breezes passing by,
God made a baby's laughter
and a tiny, sleepy sigh.
God made the world a precious gift
more dear and pure than gold,
with little toes to play with
and tiny hands to hold
then brought into the sunshine
a precious baby boy
All wrapped up in a rainbow
of wonder, hope, and joy.


A Baby is a Miracle
Author Unknown

This little tiny baby
Was sent from God above
To fill our hearts with happiness
And touch our lives with love
He must have known
We'd give our all
And always do our best
To give our precious baby love
And be grateful and so blessed


Ten Little Fingers
Author Unknown

Ten little fingers,
Ten little toes,
Two little eyes,
One little nose.
Put them together,
what have you got?
You've got me
and that's a lot!


The Baby's Dance
by Ann Taylor

Dance little baby, dance up high,
Never mind baby, mother is by;
Crow and caper, caper and crow,
There little baby, there you go;
Up to the ceiling, down to the ground,
Backwards and forwards, round and round;
Dance little baby, and mother shall sing,
With the merry coral, ding, ding, ding.


Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep;
Should I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray thee, Lord, my soul to keep;
See me safely through the night,
And wake me with the morning's light.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep;
Guard me Jesus through the night,
And wake me with the morning light.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the lord my soul to keep,
thy angels watch me through the night,
And keep me safe till morning's light.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the lord my soul to keep,
May angels watch me through the night,
And keep me in their blessed sight.

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep;
When in the morning light I wake,
Teach me the path of love to take.


The happy household
by Eugene Field

It's when the birds go piping and the daylight slowly breaks,
That, clamoring for his dinner, our precious baby wakes;
Then it's sleep no more for baby, and it's sleep no more for me,
For, when he wants his dinner, why it's dinner it must be!
And of that lacteal fluid he partakes with great ado,
While gran'ma laughs,
And gran'pa laughs,
And wife, she laughs,
And I - well, I laugh, too!

You'd think, to see us carrying on about that little tad,
That, like as not, that baby was the first we'd ever had;
But, sakes alive! he isn't, yet we people make a fuss
As if the only baby in the world had come to us!
And, morning, noon, and night-time, whatever he may do,
Gran'ma, she laughs,
Gran'pa, he laughs,
Wife, she laughs,
And I, of course, laugh, too!

But once - a likely spell ago - when that poor little chick
From teething or from some such ill of infancy fell sick,
You wouldn't know us people as the same that went about
A-feelin' good all over, just to hear him crow and shout;
And, though the doctor poohed our fears and said he'd pull him through,
Old gran'ma cried,
And gran'pa cried,
And wife, she cried,
And I - yes, I cried, too!

It makes us all feel good to have a baby on the place,
With his everlastin' crowing and his dimpling, dumpling face;
The patter of his pinky feet makes music everywhere,
And when he shakes those fists of his, good-by to every care!
No matter what our trouble is, when he begins to coo,
Old gran'ma laughs,
And gran'pa laughs,
Wife, she laughs,
And I - you bet, I laugh, too!
