Every baby needs a lap.  ~Henry Robin

Getting down on all fours and imitating a rhinoceros stops babies from crying.  (Put an empty cigarette pack on your nose for a horn and make loud "snort" noises.)  I don't know why parents don't do this more often.  Usually it makes the kid laugh.  Sometimes it sends him into shock.  Either way it quiets him down.  If you're a parent, acting like a rhino has another advantage.  Keep it up until the kid is a teenager and he definitely won't have his friends hanging around your house all the time.  ~P.J. O'Rourke

When babies look beyond you and giggle, maybe they're seeing angels.  ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

...a little child, born yesterday,
A thing on mother's milk and kisses fed...

God's interest in the human race is nowhere better evinced than in obstetrics.  ~Martin H. Fischer

A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on.  ~Carl Sandburg

If you were to open up a baby's head - and I am not for a moment suggesting that you should - you would find nothing but an enormous drool gland.  ~Dave Barry
