Whether you or a loved one is welcoming a newborn into the family, you likely have a number of loving thoughts and well wishes that you want to express. Express the messages for a new baby that reflect your excitement and positive aspirations for the newborn's future in the form of artwork or gifts; personalise the items to include spiritual thoughts or the meaning of the baby's name.

Future Aspirations

Tell your grandchild, niece or nephew how excited you are to welcome her to the family and that you already know she'll grow up to achieve great things. Let her know that the world is full of opportunities and that she was born into a family with a wealth of talents and abilities. For instance, share with her that she may want to follow in her aunt's footsteps to become a lawyer, or could grow up with a beautiful singing voice like her grandmother. Conclude the message by reinforcing that no matter what paths she chooses to pursue, you'll be there to support her. Type the message or write it in calligraphy pen before framing it, or include it in her baby scrapbook for her to read when she's older.

Maternal/Paternal Feelings

Write a letter to your newborn son revealing your feelings when you discovered you were pregnant. Share with him the feelings of joy, nervousness and curiosity that ensued as you prepared for his birth, and how you imagined what he would look like and what his personality would be. You can even tell him about all the books and articles you read to prepare for his birth. Conclude the message by telling him that you felt an overwhelming sense of love for him, even before he was born, and will continue to feel this way about him throughout his life. Record this message on DVD so he can watch it as often as possible, or place a handwritten message in an envelope and store it in a chest that you'll fill with his childhood memories.

Name Meaning

Prepare a message for a new baby that centres around the meaning of her name. For instance, if you've named your baby girl Abigail, which means "the joy of the father," share with your daughter how elated you are as a father to welcome the newest addition of your family. Use the message to inform her that you're happy to nurture and guide her, and know she'll grow into a beautiful young lady. Or, reveal to your son that you named him Maddox, which means "son of the Lord" because you wanted to request God's protection for his life directly from birth. Print your baby's name at the top of the message in a decorative font and frame it to serve as a wall feature in the nursery or family room.

Bible Verses

If the baby message is for a newborn of a Christian or spiritual household, a Bible verse that displays the sentiments of the parents and loved ones is ideal. For instance, present the newborn with a framed message like Jeremiah 1:5 -- "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you ... " Then write a personal message to the baby, including words of comfort, to let her know that God will love her throughout life and is always available to hear her prayers. Use pearl white invitation paper to write the message, or put it in a white or cream-coloured frame to present at a baptism.
