A soiled baby with a neglected nose cannot be conscientiously regarded as a thing of beauty.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Always kiss your children goodnight - even if they're already asleep.
Jean Liedloff, The Continuum Concept: In Search Of Happiness Lost
A baby's cry is precisely as serious as it sounds.
A crying baby is the best form of birth control.
Elinor Goulding Smith
It sometimes happens, even in the best of families, that a baby is born. This is not necessarily cause for alarm. The important thing is to keep your wits about you and borrow some money.
Marion C. Garretty
Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.
When you are a mother, you are never alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
This is a place where grandmothers hold babies on their laps under the stars and whisper in their ears that the lights in the sky are holes in the floor of heaven.
This baby is your blessing,
I wish happiness in every way,
Good luck God bless,
And many blessings and wishes,
To welcome baby into your life today
I haven’t the faintest idea how babies are born, probably because I fainted on the day I was born.
Henry David Thoreau
Every child begins the world again.
I’m not opposed to new people, I just don’t like their packaging (diapers).
A baby is God’s opinion that the world should go on.
Babies are such a nice way to start people.
I've never really understood the desire people have to quantify a baby. "He's X big and Y long," As if the baby is a fish you're not sure you're going to keep. Or some prize potato you're hoping will win a prize at the county fair.
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.
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.
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.
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
Lish McBride, Hold Me Closer, Necromancer
You know what the great thing about babies is? They are like little bundles of hope. Like the future in a basket.
Tina Fey, Bossypants
Ah, babies! They’re more than just adorable little creatures on whom you can blame your farts.
