Baby Footprint and Poem

I found this footprints poem on the Internet. I did a foot print of my daughter's foot, then once it dried, scanned it into the computer. I then used a graphic program, added the poem and pasted the footprint.


You could make this for Daddy or Mommy.

That is SO neat -- I've e-mailed this to my daughter-in-law. This might be something she'll do for my son for father's day next year. . .

My son and his wife had a baby in November and I can't think

of a better gift that surely would be held in the heart. My son is in Iraq at the moment, I think this is just what he needs. I's beautiful.

Hi Karyn,

Thank you so much for this neat idea. But it looks like the poem got cut off at the end . "So, " Can you repost then ending of the poem? Thank you in advance.


Editor's Note: Hi Bette, it looks like it is all there. Here is the poem:

For My Daddy

"Walk a little slower Daddy,"

said a child so small,

"I'm following in your footsteps

and I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,

Sometimes they're hard to see;

So walk a little slower, Daddy,

For you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up,

You're what I want to be;

Then I will have a little child

Who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,

And know that I was true,

So walk a little slower, Daddy,

For I must follow you."

As a dad and grandpa of five I was excited by this poem. We have the footprints and I am an avid scrapbooker. So thanks for the inspiration for many new pages in the books I am making for my grand children.

As a toddler teacher in a preschool setting, I've done footprints and handprints with poems for years as gifts to moms and dads and to include in the children's portfolios. This is one of my favorites!!
