Maurice Chevalier once wrote a whole song about why we needed to “Thank Heaven for Little Girls,” and he was right! Having a baby girl is a defining moment for moms and dads alike, and really is such a blessing. These baby girl quotes for moms and dads talk about how a daughter will grow up to be her mom’s best friend and a treasure to her father.
While being a girl parent is profound and meaningful, it also involves a lot of laughter and sparkle. You will likely be taking many photos of your little princess and these baby girl quotes will also make the perfect Instagram captions. Especially when there is glitter everywhere… I do not miss the glitter stage of parenting a little girl.
Now, not all baby girls are pink princesses who sprinkle glitter wherever they go! Some girls like blue, some like dragons and dirt, and maybe even baiting a fishing hook. That’s wonderful too! Your baby girl will become the version of herself that she is meant to be, and I promise you will be so proud either way!

Which of these little girl quotes is your favorite?
There were several baby girl quotes about what “a daughter is.” A daughter is all of those things but she is also so much more. She is whatever she wishes to be, and sometimes she might not know what that is from moment to moment!
When I was pregnant for the first time, I just knew she was going to be a girl. I couldn’t wait for a little mini-me. I didn’t grow up with my mother, and I was thrilled to foster this amazing relationship with a daughter of my own. I could envision all the moments and all the things we would do.
She was a little fashionista at three, who owned more shoes than I did. She watched way too many Disney princess movies, and this became apparent the day she stood in the McDonald’s play tower, looked down at two little boys playing below her, batted her eyelashes, and yelled, “Boys? Boys, oh help me, boys…” I almost died.
But she has also been my child who jumped into the pool at 2 without an ounce of fear, braved all the girl drama of middle school with grace, while simultaneously throwing so much of my attitude right back at me (so much for wanting that mini-me…). She danced her heart out on the dance team all through high school, while getting A’s in the advanced placement and honors math and science classes.
Today she is almost 18 and somedays I see a beautiful woman that is my best friend, and other days there are glimpses of my baby girl who was obsessed with dolls. That is what a daughter is to me, a beautiful and witty conundrum that will always keep you on your toes!
