Until baby shows,
A lifetime of love,
That only grows.

Toy trucks, bugs, and baseball bats,
Will baby be a boy or a girl so fair?
Either way, this is joy we want you to share.

Come shower this new mommy with wisdom lifelong,
And show her she's capable, caring, and strong.

Help this new mommy be happy and calm.
