These verse and quotes about babies are all positive, inspirational words of wisdom and love.
I have always thought that babies are an absolute joy and each one is a perfect, unique miracle.
The most precious moment of my life was when my first baby was placed in my arms after the birth. The immense feeling of love that I felt was indescribable, even now, thirty plus years later, I still treasure that moment, I just think about the weight of that little bundle of love in my arms and I am uplifted. I also felt the same with my other children, but I think the first sticks in your mind more, because it's a new experience.
I now have seven grandchildren to adore, each one is yet another miracle and the greatest treasures of life.

Babies are thinking and attracting before they are speaking. Even though you are only months old in your physical body, you are a very old and wise Creator, focused in that baby's body.
James Matthew Barrie
1860 - 1937
When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born it's first laugh becomes a fairy.
Polly Berrien Berends
Quotes About Babies
Most of us would do more for our babies than we have ever been willing to do for anyone, even ourselves.
We can see that the baby is as much an instrument of nourishment to us, as we are for him.
I am so ready to be a mommy. I can't wait. I notice every little baby dress, every little baby toy, every little baby thing.
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.
1924 - 1998
I love to think that the day you're born,
you're given the world as a birthday present.
Quotes About Babies
You were created to be completely loved
and completely lovable for your whole life.
Frank A. Clark
A baby is born with a need to be loved... and never outgrows it.
Having a child is surely the most beautifully irrational act that two people in love can commit.
Arthur C. Coxe
Flowers are words which even a baby can understand.
Some people have got advice, some people have got horror stories. I like people that look you in the eye with a glow and say "It's gonna be cool."
Binnie A. Dansby
Birth is our source experience in the body, and we were conscious at birth, educable in utero. Birth affects our whole subsequent mental, emotional and spiritual well-being.
It's all kind of these profound things crashing on you when your child arrives into the world. It's like you've met your reason to live.
1812 - 1870
It is not a slight thing when those so fresh from God love us.
I knew it was going to be the most extraordinary thing in my life, but how powerful it is, you can never know until you have a baby.
1804 - 1881
We are all born for love,
it is the principle of existence and its only end.
Spend some time observing babies. They don't work; they poop in their pants, and they have no goals other than to expand, grow and explore this amazing world. Be like that baby you once were, in terms of being joyful.
Eileen Elias Freeman
When babies look beyond you and giggle, maybe they're seeing angels.
1895 - 1983
Everyone is born a genius,
but the process of living de-geniuses them.
Vincent van Gogh
1853 - 1890
If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on it's cradle.
Quotes About Babies
Letter From Newborn
Dear Mummy and Daddy
No matter what happens between us, during my childhood I shall love you unconditionally.
You are my guides, my supports, my lifetime anchors...for whatever becomes of me, depends on our time together.
From you I will learn what love is. I will learn to be confident or shy, giving or selfish, loving or cruel. I will learn what is right and wrong, who I should respect and whether I should respect myself...and love myself.
As I come into this world, into your tender care, I am a vast clean sponge, I will soak up every look, every touch, every thought, every word, every feeling and it will mould me into the person that I will become.
So in the days, weeks, months and years ahead, remember that, every touch, thought, word, feeling and look, I will absorb.
If you treat me with love, caring, respect, tolerance, forgiveness, understanding, even when I do things wrong, then I will grow up into a kind, considerate, confident, loving, responsible person.
But if you treat me with intolerance, uncaring, harshness, words of anger, neglect...
I will be sad...
My Quotes About Babies

I was delighted to see that my Letter From Newborn was used by photographer Drew McWilliams (in Northern Ireland) on his site, especially as in his blog he combines two of the things I love - quotes and family photographs - to such a wonderful effect, he captures so much emotion in his pictures.
1941 - 2004
I understood once I held a baby in my arms,
why some people have the need to keep having them.
Suddenly she was here. And I was no longer pregnant.
I was a mother. I never believed in miracles before.
I believe that each personality is complete at conception
and comes in the soul of every child.
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.
Babies are such a nice way to start people.
I could still remember how having a two day old baby makes you feel faintly sorry for everyone else, stuck in their wan unmiraculous lives.
There is nothing like a newborn baby to renew your spirit
and to buttress your resolve to make the world a better place.
Each of us enters the world because hope for the future preceded us.
1890 - 1995
Whenever I held my newborn baby in my arms, I used to think that what I said and did to him could have an influence not only on him but on all whom he met, not only for a day or a month or a year, but for all eternity. A very challenging and exciting thought for a mother.
1922 - 2002
A new baby is like the beginning of all things...
hope, a dream of possibilities.
When a child is born... so are grandmothers.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
1906 - 2001
In the sheltered simplicity of the first days after a baby is born, one sees again the magical closed circle, the miraculous sense of two people existing only for each other.
You do not have to make your children into wonderful people.
You only have to remind them that they are wonderful people.
If you do this consistently from the day they are born,
they will believe it easily.
Quotes About Babies
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.
It's extraordinary to look into a baby's face and see a piece of your flesh and your spirit. It makes you realise, you are a part of the human race.
Getting a burp out of your little thing is probably the greatest satisfaction I've come across. It's truly one of life's most satisfying moments.
Quotes About Babies
God sends each person into this world with a special message to deliver, with a special song to sing, with a special act of love to bestow.
Every baby needs a lap.
Jalal Uddin Rumi
1207 - 1273
Quotes About Babies
You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings...
Learn to use them and fly.
1878 - 1967
Quotes About Babies
A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on.
Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn child.
Barbara Christine Seifert
A baby is a blank cheque made payable to the human race.
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

1817 - 1862
Every child, begins the world again.

an ever fresh and radiant possibility.

All animals are born with innocence, curiosity and love.
1770 - 1850
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting...
Not in entire forgetfulness, and not in utter nakedness.
But trailing clouds of glory do we come.
A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten and the future worth living for.
A little bit of heaven drifted down from above,
A handful of happiness, a heartful of love.
The mystery of life, so sacred and sweet,
The giver of joy, so deep and complete.
Precious and priceless, so loveable too
The world's sweetest miracle... baby, is you.
Along life's journey those souls entrusted to your care
will become your greatest teachers.
A sweet new blossom of humanity.
Babies are bits of stardust, blown from God.
Babies touch the world with love.
Everyone is at a different stage of consciousness. There is a certain stage you reach where you intent is to only speak your truth, not convince others of it. You begin to realize that everyone has their own path. In other words, you cannot convince a baby they should be walking when they are at the stage of crawling. To convince them of that truth, is irrelevant.
I Am Not Alone
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.
Love is what we are born with...
fear is what we learn.
Our family is a circle of strength of love,
with every birth and every union, the circle grows.
Ten tiny little fingers that always want to play,
that never stop exploring the wonder of today.
Ten tiny little fingers that from the very start,
will reach out for tomorrow, yet always hold your heart.
When they placed you in my arms, you slipped into my heart.
