Baby Quotes for Cards, Announcements, and Scrapbooking

Updated on August 19, 2014

Heartfelt Baby Sentiments ...

If you are blessed with a new little loved one in your life, you will enjoy reading these tender words. You'll find touching quotes, humorous quips, warm wishes, and more. I like to share the smiles with others, and there are so many creative uses for these. Think about using them for baby showers, new Mom cards, scrapbooking, decorating the nursery. . . Or how about posting a sentimental saying about your bundle of joy on facebook? However you use them, I hope you enjoy them as much as I am!

Baby Beginnings ...

Perfect for Baby Shower Favors

"Babies are such a nice way to start people."

-- Don Herrold

"Babies are bits of stardust, blown from the hand of God."

-- Barretto

"Before you were conceived

I wanted you

Before you were born

I loved you

Before you were here an hour

I would give my life for you

This is the miracle of life."

~ Maureen Hawkins

"The smile that flickers on baby's lips when he sleeps-

does anybody know where it was borne? Yes, there is

a rumor that a young pale beam of a crescent moon

touched the edge of a vanishing autumn cloud,

and there the smile was first born . . . ."

- Rabindranath Tagore

Baby Blessings ...

My Favorite For Handmade Cards

"It is not a slight thing when those

so fresh from God love us."

-- Dickens

"A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on."

-- Carl Sandburg

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,

before you were born I set you apart;"

Jeremiah 1:5

"My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place.

When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body.

All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be."

Psalm 139:15-16

Baby Wisdom ...

A Little Sage Advice Can Never Hurt

Every baby needs a lap.

-- Henry Robin

A baby is an inestimable blessing and bother. - Mark Twain

What good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is usually best after all.

-- Benjamin Spock

Babies control and bring up their families as much as they are controlled by them; in fact ... the family brings up baby by being brought up by him.

-- Erik H. Erikson

How to Personalize Someone Else's Words ...

We can't all put our feelings into words like Shakespeare or Browning. I think reading quotes give us those "ah ha" moments of "Yes, that's just what I want to say." When a quote captures your message, use it and add a personal touch. I love to do this by making my own cards. If you're limited by time or crafting ability, buy a pretty box of blank cards and print a quote typed on your computer, cut it out and insert it inside the card with double-sided tape. Going to that little bit of extra effort means so much and I think you'll find it saves you time and money, as opposed to making a trip to the store each time you need a birthday card.

Baby Love and Giggles ...

"Sometimes", said Pooh, "the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

-- Elizabeth Stone

A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it.

-- Frank A. Clark

If your baby is "beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time," you're the grandma."

-- Theresa Bloomingdale

Adam and Eve had many advantages, but the principal one was that they escaped teething. ~ Mark Twain
