Welcome to the world my love we've waited just for you and made a place right in our hearts that's strong and deep and true.
Watching you grow and learn thrills me to my toes. I love you more than I can say, and each day my love grows.
"A happy family is but an earlier heaven."
George Bernard Shaw
My true happiness grab hold of you and never let you go.
"The family is one of nature's masterppieces."
Our family makes a circle around you of love and giggles and fun. We'll give you everything we've got our precious little one.
I kiss your nose, your ears, your toes I kiss your little knees. I kiss you all over, then wrap you up, and give you a great big squeeze.
We'll wrap you up warm, and your grandmas will spin yarns of days when your parents were small.
"Each child has its fairy godmother in its own soul."
Grab hold of my hand and we'll ride on the tail of a star. In our imagination, we travel near and far.
Let's make some silly faces just to make you wiggle. You put us through our paces all to hear your giggle.
