This is your first Birthday
A very special one
A nice kind of day

This  poem verse is funny and 'written by the baby' and is suitable for a card or an invite

I'm one already, already
The folks say they can't believe how time has flown
But what perplexes me, quite profoundly
Is the speed at which I've grown

When I first plopped out I could only make
A crying noise that was vexatious to all around
Whereas now I'm a champion gurgler
Have you heard my very hilarious raspberry sound?

Everyday is exciting, I just keep learning
Did you know that a cow once jumped over the moon?
But I haven't yet figured out how (Mum)(Mom)
Makes an (aeroplane)(airplane) out of the spoon

The poem was first inspired by this photo I took of my granddaughter and the ending was
And what a shock I got when I first clocked
Myself in the back of a spoon

I'm only one, but I'll soon be two
And guess what I've got planned
To have mummy, daddy and all my grand parents
Right in the palm of my hand

(Must break off now, they're coming back
They seem to like sniffing my nappy
I must return to a spot of gurgling
Bless! seems to make them ever so happy)

(Must break off now, they're coming back
To sniff my diaper to check what's inside
I must return to a spot of gurgling
Bless! makes them smile and go all dewy eyed)

1st Birthday Poems

not the last but the...
1st Birthday Poems continued

At last, your first birthday is here
Your toddler days are very near

You’ll have a party to celebrate
With friends and relatives.. how great

Mum is going to bake a cake
It better be chocolate… for goodness sake

Dad will be busy helping mum
Oh boy! It sure is gonna be fun

There will be lots of other little kids
All spilling their food on their bibs

The unwrapping of the gifts is just the best
Who cares whats inside, lets put the paper to the test

When your happy day is coming to and end… have no fear
Just know Nanny and Poppy’s love is always near
