When Addy was a baby I used to sing to her. The tune was Kookaburra sitting in the old gum tree, but I would sing Addy bear instead of Kookaburra. One day we were driving in the car and Addy was a screaming...she sucked her fingers rather than taking a binkie, so there was no force feeding her one to get her to settle down. I was struggling to get her to relax and find her fingers and Holden, bless his heart, piped up, "I know what she needs!" He reached across the car seat and started to stroke her hair and sang.
"Addy bear is sitting in the old gum tree
Merry, merry queen of the tree is she-e
Laugh Addy bear, Laugh Addy bear
Save some gum for me!"
I'll be darned, it worked like a charm. Sweet kid that he is, he sang and sang and sang until she fell asleep.
Here are some more fun pictures of our sweet Addy bear!
