100+ children quotes | motherhood parenting childhood quotes and sayings

Over the time I have collected my favorite quotes about baby, inspirational quotes for children, quotes related to children, poems on babies, and thought of sharing the collection here – all at one place.  All these can be used as captions for photos on facebook or as instagram caption for your pictures.

Apart from using as photo captions, these quotes and baby poems are also great if you are looking for quotes to print as wall art for baby’s nursery, or to print inspirational sayings on a canvas to hang in your child’s room, or for scrapbooking / baby announcements / greeting card messages, you name it!  You will also find some quotes and captions for twins in between (I haven’t sorted them out!).

Awed each day that I love you more.

And whisper, “I love you” every night.

My heart’s yours forever, little one.
I loved you from the very start,
You stole my breath, embraced my heart.  – Unknown
