Baby Handprint Poems To Remember Tiny Hands

Baby handprint poems are just as sweet as a newborns tiny hand. Have you ever noticed how incredible a baby's hands are?

Those tiny little chubby fingers grasping at the air trying to hold daddy's finger, mommy's hair or pulling at grandma's nose.

Watch them as they grab everything that surrounds them and slip it into their tiny mouths.

Why do these little hands captivate adults so much? Then as baby becomes a toddler the little hands have grown but to you they still seem so small.

Yet, they are big enough to be held as you go for a walk in the park or a stroll around the grocery store. The excitement is seen in baby's eyes as you take them out discovering the world around them.

We buy the tiniest winter mittens; in colors to match babies hat and still we are enthralled at the tiny hands. How are we to remember these precious hands as baby grows to adolescence?

Create A Baby Book

Many of the baby books celebrate baby's hands with poetry to mark their beauty. You can do this too. If baby is a girl a pink book to put keepsakes in will be perfect. If baby is a boy find a blue keepsake book.

Then you may want to take babies handprint's carefully using washable inks or paints, and make them the title page of your book.

You can add hand print poems from magazines, Internet sources or written by yourself or members of your inner circle. It is a mystery to many why we fuss so much.

But when you hold your baby that first time, see those tiny eyes trying to focus on your face, watch their hands flail about as they discover what they are, how can you feel anything but amazement at the sight of them.

This little being is entrusted into your care, relying on you to love and cherish them. We know that it is not possible to do anything else.

You never want to forget these first moments. Cameras, whether Polaroid for instant pictures, traditional cameras or digital, should be clicking away to be certain to not miss the growth of baby and his or her smile.

Charming Baby Handprint Rhymes

Little Hands

My little hands play patty-cake
They peek-a-boo and wave
They catch me while I learn to walk
And splash me as I bathe
My little hands reach up to you
For hugs before I sleep
And fold together when I pray The Lord my soul to keep

My little hands are tiny now
But yours will serve to guide me
And when I'm grown I'll still reach out
And know you're right beside me.

Tiny Handprints

Tiny handprints grow so fast
Their awkward groping soon will clasp
A ball, a book, a sweetheart's hand
A diploma, briefcase, wedding band.

Tiny handprints grow so strong
It doesn't take them very long
To snap a shirt, to paint, to draw
To labor hard, to drive a car.

Tiny handprints grow to be
A person that is quite unique
A wonderful mix of so many things
With his own feelings, thoughts and dreams.

Tiny handprints grow to rely
On his parents to bring him up just right
His parents pray that when he's grown
He'll say their job has been well done.

Tiny handprints are ours to love
The sweetest gift from God above
A miracle that never is surpassed
How sad they grow up way to fast.
