Except for tiny kittens, puppies, ducklings and the 1st birthday wishes on this page, there aren't many things in life cuter than a 1 year old. Actually, there is...two 1 year olds.
Birthday messages for 1 year olds can be (and should be) just as cute. The ones on this page are as cute as they come, even for the parents of your birthday boy or girl.
Take a moment or two to look at my 1st birthday messages below and pick the verse that feels just right for your favorite infant!
Message Guy Tip #17: How to pick 1st birthday wishes
You would think that choosing 1st birthday wishes for the 1 year olds of family and friends is easy to do...but it isn't. Why the difficulty? It's hard to pick the right verse because you may be focusing on the wrong recipient.
When we look at 1st birthday messages, we think of the birthday girl or boy, not the parents of these wonderful children. That's not the right approach. It's not the child who will be reading your message.

One-year-old kids, unless they're geniuses, can't read, so you should really focus on Mom and Dad. As soon as you do get down to selecting a birthday verse, it's very important to ask yourself a certain question: would Mom and Dad like this message?
If you want to make it a little easier on yourself, pick the birthday message that best expresses just how cute, how beautiful or how handsome this baby is to you. You can't go wrong with flattery. Every parent likes to hear that their child is the belle or beau of the ball.
You can also be funny, poking fun at all the changes junior has brought to the lives of his/her parents. A little laughter never hurt anyone (and may even give Mom and Dad a little boost).
So when you really want to get personal in a very approachable way, go for birthday poems. Who can resist them? Probably nobody. ◄ Read less
