Having a baby is special and magical… and also exhausting. If you’re a parent, an aunt, uncle, or grandparent, or have ever played the role of care-giver to a baby, you know that babies are worth the sleepless night because they stretch our hearts and bring joy to our lives.
From the first time you see their face and smell their newborn smell, to their first foods, their first steps, and their first words, the baby years are full of joy. Little ones are always growing and learning and, as an adult, it’s fun just to be along for the ride. When it comes to babies, everything keeps changing from day to day and time flies by. The days can seem long but the years are oh so short. So embrace the time while they’re still considered a baby. It won’t last long!
To celebrate the fleeting baby stage of life, here are some letter board quotes to use in your nursery, bump pictures, or anywhere else in your home decor!
