Writing the Perfect Baby Shower Poem

For a baby shower you can think of the parents-to-be and how they feel about the baby on the way.  What advice would you want to give them?  Try to include the names of the expecting parents and grandparents. If the baby already has siblings, try to include their names as well. Try to incorporate the date the baby is due (or at least the month). If they know the sex or have a name picked out, if they have a nick name for the baby in the womb like the bean or the peanut, you can try to include a line in the poem that references that as well.

I invite you to give it your best shot. Post your poem here. Use this data: Mom to be is Jane, Dad to be is John, they are having baby Mary on December 28th. Let your creativity shine.

Please post your sample poem in the comment section.

Thank you for coming to Paula’s baby shower
You truly made her feel like woman of the hour
Dakota Mackenzie Ryan will be here real soon
And Mike and Paula are just over the moon
With all the goodies, she’s off to a great start
My little sis thanks you from the bottom of her heart
