need a nice message

I'm going to a baby shower tomorrow for my sister-in-law and instead of cards we are supposed to bring a book with a nice message written inside for the baby. I'm not good at coming up with nice little notes like that, so can someone help me? It will be a message to my niece. I wanted to include something about my two children. I know I sound pitiful, but I'm just not much of a writer I guess. Thanks!

  • "Never question or doubt your right and delight to be here. You are worthy and worthwhile. You matter. And we [names] love you dearly. xxx"
    The book, The Purple Crayon is great about appreciating the wonders of the world and personal influence. No Matter What by Debi Gliori is good too. But you can't go wrong with the classic Velveteen Rabbit.
    Enjoy the baby shower!
