A beautiful way to commemorate your bub’s 1st birthday is to write them a birthday poem. You can then keep it stored for them for when they are older. Birthday poems are also a lovely way to record and share your thoughts and feelings about them and to record their milestones for them on their first birthday.
Sometimes it is helpful to get some inspiration or even use the words that others have written instead. Poetry should be fun. Try these sites for inspiration or ideas: Birthday poems for kids, Happy birthday poems, 1st birthday verses.
You can also start storing up quotes or verses that have special meaning for you to share with bub when they are older. Keep these with the birthday poem you have written for them. It might be a verse or quote from your favourite author or poet. Alternatively it might be a saying your family or a loved one uses. Write it down and store it away. While your little one won’t fully appreciate what you have done in writing them a birthday poem and recording quotes and verses for them, it will prove an amazing keepsake for them to treasure when they are older.
